I am getting ready to work on my Naruto costume which will be used for Otakon 2003. Problem I am haveing with it, is trying to figure out how the hell to make the boot/sandles.

I was reading an interview with Naruto creator Masashi Kishimoto, and he said the shoes the charcters wear are based of a real type of ninja sandle. Just wondering if anyone knows were to find them if they exist, or if anyone has found a way to reproduce these shoes.

Naruto's sandals are pretty simple in design.. you could easily find regular sandals close enough to it to use, or find blue ones you can just modify by adding fabric. *shrug*

I made the boots out of soccer socks and the butchered flip-flops. It works very well, but is difficult to wear. I'm working on improving on the design(I made the boots in like a half an hour) I would be willing to make another pair for only $15, plus cost of shipping. e-mail me at star_blaz@hotmail.com
