Re: Costuming - TOS Boots

I have a pair of the costume boots and they are a good, cheaper alternative. I just with the toes were pointier like the series boots generally were.

Re: Costuming - TOS Boots

That is NOT what they look like. Like most 60's boots they had the more stylish cuban heel. The screen grab is from "What Are Little Girls Made Of?"

Do they make boots like this anymore for men?

I think I read somewhere that the heels disappeared after season 1.

Nice sharp pic of the boots spockboy.

Is that Shatner?

Mario they look pretty close. You could switch from biker to trekker easily.

FormerLurker the Funtasma Captains have the zipper you're talking about.

There's a pic from the set of "What are Little Girls..." that shows Shatner in uniform but wearing his comfy loafers when not filming a scene. That should tell us something about what it's like to walk around in those boots all day, even his custom-made hero pair.

Re: Costuming - TOS Boots

So were there lifts in just Shatner's boots or did all the men's boot have heels?

Re: Costuming - TOS Boots

These are Shatner's lift boots. Note that in addition to the extra high heel, the front sole has also been built up. I always thought they should have filmed someone else's boots scrambling up the cliff in order to avoid showcasing Shatner's lifts.

Shatner wore lifts -- but only because he is a little shorter than Kirk was...

...and Scotty had all ten digits...

...and Sulu was the kind of boy a girl would bring home to meet mom....

Those Funtasma boots like something I've been wanting for a while. Could use them for all of my trek costumes.

In brown they'd be good as Malcolm Reynolds' boots in Firefly and Serenity.

Re: Costuming - TOS Boots

I use Alfani boots for my Kirk Duds. In half of the episodes, the pants are worn outside of the boots. In this case, the alfani profile is perfect. Blousing bands hide the fact that they aren't knee highs. I got them for $40 at Macy's on sale.

The pants are outside the boots in all the episodes. Shatner just had a habit of pulling the bloused cuff up higher to look more 'actiony'.

I looked at a lot of pictures to find the 'perfect boots'





In most cases they were low and outside the boots.
