    i've always loved these boots... my chances of getting the actual pair shown will more than likely be slim to none... can any of you help me out? i know galliano ripped off the idea of these from mongolian tribesmen ... anywhere i can find similar?

    Call 011-33-1-40-73-54-00 and ask to speak to Catherine Rivere then tell her that you are looking for a paticular pair of shoes from the winter '02 collection and she will give you the price,and any other information you need and it is possible to purchase these but they will have to reproduce a pair for you :flower:

    Everybody will be stopping you and asking to pet them. At least that's what I'd do......they're fuzzy! :woot:

    Im actually thinking now on a way to design my own :shifty:

    I have a lot of rabbit fur here, so I can use it backsided, which looks exactly like the skin on those boots... I just need to make a bootie shaped, probably using a pattern from a sock, I can take those then to a shoe repair guy, and he can add the sole for so cheap...some leather thread and fur and im on my way :lol:

    yes, i was thinking of doing the exact same thing myself...it doesn't look too incredibly hard...but i'd love the original version...or something...and yes the boots are the backside of fur. it looks as if they're made of just the loose hide and secured around the leg with the rope..no real construction other than the rubber sole they have. i love them so much!

    i thought you'd like these also!! they're kind of vivienne westwood pirate boot-ish, i think...!! some sort of primitive/ancestral form perhaps? :wub:

    and yes i think i may call to get that price quote!! :woot:

    Oh...Brian there is one very important thing I forgot to ask...are these from a ready to wear or couture collection?

    Ok...this is the situation: The ready to wear version of them will be impossible to get but the couture version of them is possible to get through special order and the main difference is the price...
