I think I read somewhere it was about 500-600 new?

I paid £295. That was full retail from G&H.

I imagine heating up some buckshot pellets and "branding" the shoes would achieve the desired look and feel. However, thrifting some leather shoes to get the hang of the application would be advised before doing that to some $300+ shoes

Should've added (for the benefit of those who haven't read my earlier post) I paid this price when the shoes first came out!

I must confess I don't find myself reaching for the shoes that often, but they are well made and worth having IMHO. They have character and yield compliments whenever I wear them.

If I do end up getting my hands on a pair, there's no doubt I'll have them for years to come.

I plan on getting a pair to bring to a knife fight.

Just finished up with the shotgun (actually branded with ends of drillbits to get a beveled effect)

Still want the real thing though!

Why thank you Spoo. And it only took a half hour or so.

not sure if I like the look of them entirely but jesus, takes some balls to just start stabbing into a pair of shoes on a whim.

wyattearp's home job actually makes me really uncomfortable, for some reason. I'm not sure way, but in that picture they look a lot more... Grisly and violent than the originals. Which is itself an accomplishment.

This particular pair of shoes were in my fathers closet for 20 some odd years. Worn to sh*t, so I figured why not.

As someone mentioned before, practicing on thrift store buys might be a good idea if I can't find the G&Hs and decide to go with another pair.

Maybe I should have placed them on the floor and outlined them in chalk? Some numbered evidence tags perhaps?

Haha

That's a business model, right there. Lucky Stiff shoes, maybe?
