After dinging to find the solo's boot with a model not too much expensive but in leather such as WW1 cavalry soviet boot, I give up.

I will buy them new, I was looking for a shop, I know that Magnoli do them but I will have extra Fees with the customs.

Does anyone knows a good shop in Europe?

Thx !

Sorry but I don't have any tips for you straight away. I am going to look into this for you.

My experience with Magnoli and customs is that you have to be lucky. Sometimes there are extra fees, sometimes there are not.

And the fact that the UK has left the EU doesn't help at all. Quite a few good bootmakers over there.

Hi, in Italy we have a really good bootmaker, i work with him to did my Han Solo ANH\ESB Boots and HOTH version Boots too. I dodn't remember if he did TFA Han boots in the past too... But he is a great handcrafter.

Excellent suggestion!

I have mostly been looking at theatre, LARP and reenactment shops all over Europe,but I am afraid that I have not come up with a suitable solution for TFA boots.

For my OT Han Solo boots I ended up going with Magnoli because even with the added import tax it was still my cheapest option. I am in the Netherlands myself, by the way.
