Hello. I am making Gakupo's sandplay boots too. I used cheap satin I had stored around to make the boots. much more cheaper and has a shine like boots as well. If you plan on using purple pants instead of shorts I suggest something not too tight around the legs.

It's alright, i brought thigh high boot covers, put a Zip in them, painted the top '^' shape with gold paint, and worked so the covers are now sewn onto the Heels, I finished them Earlier today, Thank you for the Advice anyway ^^

Leather is a very expensive and somewhat difficult material to work with. If its your first time, I would recommend using a 4-way stretch vinyl that *looks* like leather, that way you have room to wiggle and move once you have made the boot covers. [link] Here's a base tutorial for boot covers, but I would recommend doing a mock up first and making a pattern out of scrap material to get the dimensions right and become more comfortable with the process.
