Hi All - so I am pretty close to being able to be done with my Hoth and Escape Leia

I am really struggling with the boots. I get adding the grey suede and straps - that is not the issue.

What I am struggling with is the actual shoe. It seems like it is a wedge shoe(like OLD grandma style) repurposed?

I went on the sticky note part and that seems like it has no further info.

Has anyone had any luck with this?

Appreciate any help!

What I used for mine is a "wedge loafer," which you can try searching on Amazon for. Most of them come in black, so I had to paint the base shoe gray before attaching the fake leather part that creates the top of the boot.

Still looking - any other thoughts out there would be great too!

I have tried pretty much "wedge" boots, shoes, loafers, moccasins.....not really finding what would work.

Something like this or this could work as a decent base.
