Steampunk Boots inspiration


I have a pair of boots I will be wearing with my steampunk outfit, they will be on show due to the length of the skirt at the front so I need some inspiration on how to Steampunk them up a bit more. I considered something like ruff and buff, put a thin layer on to chanr surface colour slightly (not sure if tarnish is right word) but does anyone.have any other ideas? Heres a link to photo ofthe boots I have;

Do you have pictures of the costume you will be wearing the boots with? Depending on what style you've gone with for that will help get ideas for the boots.

I got some kind of buffer wax that makes things look 'steampunk', just look on ebay for it. But I put some on some black boots and it just made them look a bit more authentic.

Swapping the laces for a sturdy ribbon that matches your costume can create a nice look. What kind of character are you doing? That might help give us some more ideas for a way to integrate them.
