Hello friends,

I came across these boots online and am curious if they'd be approvable? Can't see any reason why not but wanted the expertise of the group to verify.

That looks like a standard Funtasma 'Walker' boot. I see them a lot on costumes. They're relatively inexpensive and yes, approvable.

The only word of caution, they are not as good on the durability end. Depends on your planned number of troops and whatever wear and tear you might put on them. (It's like reviewing tires lol)

Here is a link to the boots:

Like reviewing tires....made me laugh a little too hard.

Do have a recommendation for maybe a similar price range (<$150 ideally) with some better durability?

those are not funtasma boots.
the funtasma boots have a zipper on the inseam of the leg (which is allowed);
these ones have a zipper on the back of the leg (which is not allowed).
