Simca from Air Gear's boots?

This is the first time i've had to actually make boots and i'm not sure where to start. What kind of boots should I use..rain boots or something else? Can I spray paint them or should is there some other kind of paint or dye that's better?

Here's the best pic I could find of them:

I suggest you use bootcovers for these ones in particular, since they look pretty full and have slight wrinkles, so it looks a bit more like cloth. If you want to go the shiny route, try PVC or vinyl. Otherwise, spandex is good.

If you really want to destroy some boots... I've heard that fabric dye works well with shoes covered in satin and whatnot, but I'm not sure what you can do with rainboots. Latex paint sounds like it could work, but again, I've never tried coloring shoes. =P

Not sure if this is the right forum for it, either...?

Thanks, it helped alot, I never considered using boot covers but now that you mentioned it I think I prefer it that way anyways since it means I won't have to ruin a pair of boots.

Thanks alot!
