    HELP: Need Tall GI Joe boots - no laces

    Does anyone have an extra pair of tall black boots (without laces) to fit a vintage GI Joe body?

    If so, please shoot me a pm and a price.

    Thanks!

    Do you mean jackboots or cavalry boots? Must they be vintage?

    I'm making a SuperJoe on a vintage body, so doesn't have to be vintage. Just needs to have no laces. I tried ordering a pair from Cotsworld but they've HUGE. I'd prefer not to steal a pair from my 90's Star Wars guys if I can.

    Thanks for asking.

    Did they come with Cotswold jackboots? I would think those would look huge on a vintage Joe with a Super Joe suit. Would standard black Captain Action boots work?
    Nostalgia just ainít what it used to be.

    Cotswold's Elite Brigade repro uniforms and boots tend to run large, and they will look oversized with a knit suit as for Super Joe. I doubt if Hasbro's '90s boots will fit a Joe, the Joe feet are much larger/longer. Cots used to sell their own sculpt of rubber jackboots, but these seem out-of-stock.

    Cots is selling a vintage pair of Action Man jackboots, these may fit better for you. Also, I will check my parts to see if I have any extra motorcycle or jackboots, these would be more recent molds in rubber.

    BTW, Hobbycrash Geyperman is selling repro German boots. These may be smaller, but almost certainly thinner. Also, the shipping is $$$.
