Those are some lovely boots you have there Andrew. I'm interested in seeing how this project turns out.
As for the label, wouldn't a different label be better? So that people don't mistake the boots for originals? Although your idea sounds good, couldn't someone rip the other 'fake' label off, and then they'd be left with a pair of boots they could flog as originals? I suppose it would depend on how good the AM label looks.
