Stomp KBoots in black and brown.

New boots at “Stomp” - Ju Weissnicht just started creating content in sl and offers his first product: a pair of sculpty boots, KBoots, under the brand “Stomp.” For now, he is hosted at Exile (Kavar Cleanslate’s shop) in the clothing section. These boots have a cool shape, with thick soles that give them a lot of presence without being clunky. These soles and the overall building perfectly fit men’s feet without the need of invisiprims, which are always annoying at some point, near alpha textures for example. The boots are nicely textured, showing a clean and polished leather without being shiny. Note that both upper and lower parts go very well together and the boundary between them is almost invisible. You can wear the lower part alone if you want to wear long pants over the boots. Two colors are available (shown above). Each color pack comes in 5 sizes; each of them is moddable for adjustment freaks like me but you should find a size that fits your avatar proportions among the offered five, even if you are a girl. It’s really nice to get quality boots for men that aren’t army boots or grungy-dirty ones. I can’t wait for Ju Weissnicht’s next creation! :-D

Quality: 5/5 - Style-Originality: 4.5/5 - Usability (different layers, modify perms, amount of outfits put together with a single pack): 4/5 - Price: 3/5 - Value for money: 4/5

Dinzeo Designs Chandail Outfit.

New outfit at Dinzeo Designs - Devon Dinzeo just released a new outfit: “Chandail Outfit.” As is often the case at Dinzeo Designs, you will find in the pack you just purchased everything you need to get fully dressed. You will get a pair of jeans on the pants layer with two sculpted pocket attachments, a sweater and a combo sweater and jacket on the jacket layer, two pairs of sculpted cuffs (matching sweater and sweater jacket combo), a lower finish sculpted attachment for the sweater and a flexi attachment with included side pockets for the combo, a combo collar and turtleneck (for the combo sweater jacket) and a sculpted turtleneck alone. Two outfits are so allowed with a single pack. Note that the sweater looks good without its turtleneck. I just miss complementary layers for the sweater, allowing the wearer to include it in other outfits more easily. Texture work is great as usual, with nice subdued colors. Attachments are good, but I’m still not convinced with flexi complements for jackets. Everything is moddable and transfer, which is rare enough to mention! I personally prefer copy items to make outfit folders, but I have to admit transfer items are those that give you full property on your purchase: you can give them away, share them, resell them, like RL stuff. Note that “Chandail outfit” is less cheap than usual stuff at Dinzeo, but stays very reasonable and fair.

  4. These have to be the best boots I have had in 2 years, comfy, they go with a lot of my clothes and I have only had positive comments from those in the know while wearing them. Thanky Ju.

  8. How do you get the bottom of the pants inside the boots?

    Comment by Earnest Inglewood — 28 January 2009 @ 15:20

  9. @Earnest: go in “edit appearance”, chose the “pants” tab, then move the “length” slider until the pants look tucked inthe boots, that’s all! :-)
