I found these on sale at Sportsman's Guide. If you can't wear the Jack boot or find it in your size, these would be an excellent substitute.

I couldn't find jackboots in my size so I wear these exact boots with my X-Wing outfit.
I cut of the buckles though.
They look just as good as a jack boot and they're pretty comfy.

I use my engineer boots (that's what those are) for everything; Jedi, pilot, RFT and even my imperial officer. I also use them when I go riding on my motorcycle. As far as boots are concerned that was money well spent. Now I have to get them resoled Very Happy

UPDATE:

Available at Sportsmans Guide, a more accurate-looking boot. Would be excellent for X-Wing pilots, RFT's, TIE Pilots, Imperial Crew, Gunners, and Death Star Troopers too.

Ooo... hot dang. Those are really good. For that price even if they don't fit well I'll just turn it around to people here.

That price is very nice! Has anyone purchased these boots and if so, how well do they stand up? Are they sturdy enough?


Thanks

(first post btw)

I bought my TIE boots from Sportsman's Guide. They look almost exactly the same as these and they've held up great, going on almost 4 years now. Very Happy

Frakking things are never in my size... my German brethren must have really small feet or something.

I got mine from militarytour.com They are reproductions and I think they are the ones they used in the films. Surprisingly they were comfortable even walking all day at comic-con.

I was looking at the web site to purchase them, but the sizes only went to size 10. I need at least a size 11. Has anyone else purchased a size bigger than 10?
