well there goes one well kept secret (grin) ...
due to the way this one walks (on front of the feet) always rough on the
boot soles and when they can no longer be re-soled they get dismantled
and stored for armour use down the road ... the last set of leather
vambraces came from exactly the source you mentioned (dress western
boots) and have a pair of 17" ex-engineer boots awaiting breakdown and
rebuild into the base for a pir of greaves at some point.
garage sales are always a good hunting ground for cheap leather belts that
can be cut into strapping ... curently hunting garage sales on and off for a
golf bag to be used as a weapons tote ...
