I was wondering if these boots would be acceptable:

I think the boots are too high. They look more like the boots an imperial officer could wear. I would not recommend them but I am not a costume judge. You might be able to use them if you hide their actual hight by blousing the pants over the to of the boots.

Would these be better for RFT boots?

Yes, those boots would work but they are very expensive. You can buy approvable boots for less money. There are couple of possible sources. I would suggest to look for Knobelbecher (German Jackboots) on ebay.de or engineer boots on Amazon.com or ebay.com. There are also other sources. My husband and I use MIL-TEC jackboots from asmc.de.
