Is there a way to "dress up" cheap boots, or is it not worth the trouble? Just getting started with a "bash" of a PJ, starting from the ground up, so to speak.

take a fairly thick sewing needle,heat it and then push through the eye-lets of the boots ,then with the sort of thread that normally comes as a draw string for hoods re-lace the boots (some times you will need to carefully shave of the existing moulded plastic laces with a sharp blade)
you can then re paint the boot soles with acrlyics,and then add either mud or sand/dust to the uppers.

If you have a tiny drill bit (Dremel) that will do the trick to and this will not cause the rubber to split as the AF gets older.
