So the boots are the last item I need on the required list. What are some recent examples of approved boots?

Many of the posts I've seen here have old/no longer available boots. Im not going with Poe or Snap specifically either, so there should be some flexibility.

Well, the Temmin "Snap" Wexley boots are the Servus Men's Supersize 5-Buckle Rubber Overboot, which you can still regularly find on online shops, and they are the accurate boots for Wexley (and TFA Nien Nunb), you just have to add a black strip of rubber, fabric or leather down the front to hide the buckles. I got mine here... https://www.tractorsupply.com/tsc/product/servus-mens-supersize-5-buckle-rubber-overboot

The boots the Poe and most other pilots wore in TFA are no longer available and as for what people use now I've seen people use all sorts of different brands. As long as they have a similar look with the rubbing on the toe and the cloth shaft, and no visible snaps, zippers or strings, you should be fine. For what brands people have used I can't help you with that I'm afraid, I haven't looked for any myself. My only other Resistance X-wing pilot boots were for my TLJ pilot and those boots are a bit different than the TFA boots.
