Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

Where do I begin? So I own these boots in real life and I was thinking, "Hey I've never tried to make shoes before." So off I went trying to make these boots for TS3. Well.... it wasn't as easy as I thought.

These were pretty darn difficult because there are so many things I've never face before in making clothing.
I will release the desockified version sometime soon

Anyways, here they are for you to enjoy!

Now for the technical stuff.
These boots are for T-A females. They can be found in everyday, formal, and athletic categories. There are 4 recolorable channels, and 3 different texture designs that change the sock patterns. There are custom morphs for each morph state.

These boots WILL clip with MOST pants that go past the ankles.

Custom content used on the models:
the adult is wearing this hair.
the teen is wearing this hair.
both of them have this skin.

Poly counts:
A/YA mesh: LOD1 - 1568 verts, 1434 faces
LOD2 - 276 verts, 876 faces
LOD3 - 151 verts, 384 faces
T mesh: LOD1 - 1568 verts, 1434 faces
LOD2 - 315 verts, 876 faces
LOD3 - 159 verts, 384 faces

Additional Credits:
I'd like to take the time to thank everyone who has helped me with these boots, most importantly whiterider (who answered every question she possibly could), cmarNYC and bloomsbase for helping me with morphs, Elexis for also answering every question I asked, and everyone in #create who ooh'd and ahh'd my progress
Also thanks to everyone who created all of the tools used to make these.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
