Ok, for the past few months I've been running around trying to find a boot that properly fits, that might hopefully meet the RL standards. I tried the star wars costume site, for Jedi boots and they don't sell my size and many have offered to sell me their extras (because they don't where them.). Unfortunately, the they have been too big in size as well.

I found a pair of boots which I already bough, but can exchange if they aren't acceptable. Here's a picture from the site.

http://www.dsw.com/shoe/chinese+laundry+turn+it+up+over+the+knee+boot?prodId=253745&category=dsw10cat70017&activeCats=dsw12cat1740002,dsw12cat1740052,dsw10cat70017

These come in a brown which is the color of my belt. Even though the description says they are over the knee, they come to my knees.

Hopefully tomorrow, I'll be able to post pics of me wearing them.

Can anyone give me an idea as to if they would be acceptable or not?

Not bad!

Funny, as I've actually been noting that there are a lot of women's boots out there that are neutral enough in the sole/heel that they could work as a "unisex" boot.

Now I just have to find some in, as my fiance teases me, "Drag Sizes".

the key is...
do the boots end up going past the bottom of your knee?


boots can be mid calf to right below the knee..
anything higher is not acceptable for formal..

hope that helps

Most of the time "drag size" will be to take you normal shoe size and go 2 sizes higher for woman's. So If you are a size 9 start looking for a size 11. We have two guys buying boots from Lane Bryant and I have half considering that too for myself because they sell a brown riding boot that looks like its just a couple straps away from Jedi boots. Very Happy

But those boots you have should do fine

Finding a size 12-12.5 women's boot in the styles I want are proving "futile".

Confused

Tell me about it, I was very very shocked that Lane Bryant had 2 long brown boots in a size that would fit me and would work.

I purchased my jedi boots in size 12 about 2 years ago and they are excellent replicas. Though I do not recall what vendor I bought them on Ebay, I found that http://jedirobeamerica.com/ has a decent selection and variety. Their sizes are kind of "funky" as they list from small to x-large, the size chart they list on each of the pages for the shoes tells you that small = size 8/9 and x-large = size 14. Might want to check them out and we can ask our RL judges their thoughts as well.

Always consult a RL costume judge!!! Just my advice Ben

I got the simple, brown "Jedi Boots" (not from JediRobeAmerica.com, but they're the same "Funtasma" boot), and with a little time and modification, "enhanced" them to this:

My foot size is 11.5, D width, and a fairly large calf... so I had to get the large size... but with pants tucked in and an extra pair of ankle socks, they fit great!

I'm hopeful that they will pass Rebel Legion muster.... the rest of the costume is being sewn as we speak. Smile

I'm helping a friend research parts for her jedi costume, found these boots, and was wondering if they'd be allowed.
