This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Edit: whoa, thank you for the pick!

I'd been looking for tall hiking boots for kids and none were quite the way I needed, so I decided to try my hand at converting shoes for once
This also provided an opportunity to learn about UV mapping (if only a little), which proved to be very useful in my next project (which I'll upload when I stop pulling my hair out, lol).

These boots do not require University Life!
Also if you're looking for teen versions, SimplexSims converted them here:

  • For children, unisex.
  • Can be found under Everyday, Formal, Athletic, Outerwear. Enabled for Random.
  • They do not require University Life.
  • All LODs + fat morph included.
  • 4 channels, 3 presets, as shown above.
  • Custom thumbnails.

Polygon Counts:
LOD1: 572
LOD2: 346
LOD3: 210

Additional Credits:
Dress is from Supernatural, leggings are from a Generations outfit, long pants are either from the basegame or Generations
Poses by spladoum

Age: Child
Gender: Male Female
Clothing Type: Everyday Formal Athletic Outerwear
Clothing Style: Modern
Other Type: Not Applicable
Maxis Flags: Age Conversion
Outfit Type: Bottom

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

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.

I used to have boots like these in brushed leather with a little pocket on the side when I was in kindergarten. They must have been awesome, since I can still remember them more than 40 years later. Make me a crushed velvet purple dress with suspenders and some long pony tails and my 70's flashback will be complete.

Thanks for these. My kids in dystopian and apocalyptic worlds really needed boots that worked with all their clothes. You just don't get multiple pairs of shoes in dystopia!

@barbarat Thank you <3 I'm glad you like them!

@suziblue Yes!! So many shoes are neat and have heels! You won't be seeing too many of those anywhere you need to walk for a long time.

@Wunderkind You're too kind TS3 will always be special to me.
