Hey Very Happy

I am.working on an rft and am close to finished. However! I am a woman with little, non German infantry sized feet. I am a UK5 / US7.5 and am struggling to find boots that a) come close to my size and b) aren't gonna break the bank to buy. I'm not keen on going up several sizes and padding out with insoles and socks as I'm only 5ft 5... I feel like I'd look like Bobo the fleet trooper...

Any tip's and suggestions gratefully received.

I did come across these and wondered if they would be clear able?

First my usual disclaimer, I am not an expert or a costume judge. I think they are approvable. I used this Mil-Tec version of the boot and got my RFT ANH/imperial Bridge Crew approved without problems.

You might be able to find a pair of used Jackboots on the German EBay for less than these Chinese ones. You should look for Knobelbecher and Seestiefel German size 37 and 38 or 39 as well as Bundeswehr-Groeße (BW) 240 and 245. Also look for NVA Stiefel size 25 and 26.

Here are a few that I found on my first attempt.

Used boots
