Hello. Would appreciate some advice on which is more accurate.



or



Am looking to build a Luke Skywalker ANH Red 5 costume. The sticky seems to indicate that the plain, higher ones are better. But are they too high? Are the ones with the buckle more accurate (once buckles are covered)?

Thank you!

You could still shorten boots (by yourself, it's doable, or by a professional cobbler), if necessary. However, there's a good chance that it won't be necessary due to the "bulging" of the leg fabric over the boots?!

Exactly, my boots are 17 inches tall but you can't tell.

Thank you for the advice.

Will stick with the longer ones for now (which I already have).
