I haven't found any myself, but I've seen links by others and I'm also seeing more short boots in stores with the thick soles, so it might be easier to find something this year that will work.

I'm also looking for some suitable boots that match the color and style as seen in TFA/TLJ as closely as possible.

They're definitely a Chelsea style but the sides are closed up with vertical strips of material. They also seem to be more of a very light gray/sandy color, with black weathering.

EDIT: They're near identical to the boots he wears in ANH which I just now realized after researching this on Google. Huh, the things you learn...

Yep, they like thick soles for Luke. Wink And sandy-brown is a pretty good descriptor, though they also appear to have a tint of green for TLJ.

I found 2 places online that were selling replica boots. One was a set on motorcowboy.com, which is selling for $567.49 currently, which is way out of my price range. The other was via JDOS Productions on Facebook (and Etsy), and he quoted me a 5 month timeframe to make the boots and between $348-$398 for total cost (including shipping).

I very well may get a custom pair made via JDOS in the future but for now, because I'm on a serious budget, I ultimately settled for a pair of beige Steve Madden Men's Highline Chelsea Boots ($100 on Amazon.com, or $89 through DSW.com).

The Steve Madden's may not be the exact right color, they don't have the correct sole, the stitching on the sides and across the top of the foot doesn't exist, and the sides don't have the vertical strips of material, but for a fraction of the cost, it works in a pinch (and they'll arrive in the next few days)

I'm probably going to try to color/material match the suede material from the Steve Madden boots and glue on my own vertical strips of fabric on the sides to make them look a bit more convincing, but honestly, I don't think it's a bad way to go for a version 1 of my costume.
