Offer: Kids' boots for Halloween costume (75074) Expired - Kids size 5M. Black--originally brown but spraypainted black for last year's costume. Came out way better looking than in this photo--you can add more black if u want, but I didn't notice the brownish spots until I took this photo w/flash. Our trick or treater has outgrown them, so maybe they'll work for your little superhero or video game character. Size tag says for girls, but are unisex in style so ok for boys too.
