Hope this is the right section for her, I've been searching all over the various forums for links and info on boots and boot sources.

From my research I'm to assume she does NOT have the traditional Jackboots, right? Her's are more knee high riding boots?

Would something like this work if I removed the buckle?

Or better yet, these:

I'm assuming you wouldn't want zippers, but also not sure if you can get boots that high without a zipper? Any comments or other sources would be appreciated, thanks!!

You can find boots that high without a zipper when it comes to riding boots. You might need a cheap pair of boot pulls to help pull them on with. And usually without the zipper is cheaper than with the zipper.

Keep an eye on Dovery Saddlery. Many of their riding boots are just insanely priced, but sometimes they have some decent ones for $100 or less, and always check the sale section, they run some great sales at times:

You can try Chicks Saddlery too. They sometimes have great deals as well:

If you want to go the riding boot route.

I can't answer as an LCJ but rather as a former LCJ. Because this is a video game character I wouldn't have a problem with either of the boots you posted if you remove the buckles.

And yes, they should look as close to just below the knee riding boots.

Bear in mind I'm not judging this costume. Wink
