Even though the top laces have been left in some of shots of the Snowtrooper boots that I've seen , I modded it anyway .
I took the laces out & Replaced them with elastic straps . Now after getting them threaded through the boot tops I will tie off the ends
and slide them back into the eyelets . This should give a good look as well as being functional .
The standard boot Eyelets will be covered with an armor plate . This armor will have heat coils attached . ( Nonfunctional of course
Since the Wampa normally doesn't eat it's catch immediately , it likes smaller prey more as a snack food , unless starving . So you'll have several
smaller animals stuck to the Ceilings and wall of it's lair with frozen saliva ..... Usually hung upside down , like Skywalker .
These boots will come in Handy if I'm ever taken by Surprise and caught .
Chance favors the prepared mind .....
