Dying and Aging
Dying and Aging Boot covers for Benjamin Martin (Mel Gibson), "The Patriot" Mel Gibson had difficulty running in the full boots that had been made for him, so for the action scenes, a pair of leather boots covers were made to fit over his athletic shoes. The covers were aged and distressed to match the existing boots.
