I was going to start a 501st costume but fate decided that I do not have the funds to start it so I am going to try to finish my generic RL Jedi costume instead.

I am looking for the last part of my Jedi costume, the boots.
I am looking for "starter boots" in a 9/12 or 10 that would be RL approvable.

Shopping on Ebay seams hit or miss size wise as shoe sizes are different from maker to maker.

If I posted this in the wrong area please move it. Thanks Smile

A lot of folks use this (myself included):

They're not fancy but they're cheap and easy.

Thanks for the info Smile
My size is a 9 1/2 to 10 depending on how wide the shoe is as...I have a wide foot.
For the people that have got these boots will the 10-11 size be ok for a wide foot? The pictures look kinda narrow.

Also for a generic jedi do the boots need any cross straps with the new standards?

Thanks

I can let you try on my boots. I've got those, and I believe they are the 10-11 size.

And the standards for Old Republic Generic Jedi state this: Boots (leather, suede, pleather) must rise at least to the calf, but not above the knee. No rubber boots allowed

Those boots should be totally fine. Ben

I'm a 9/12 too, and I believe I have the 10 and have no sizing problems, my problem is thick calves and they can be a little snug there (as are most boots on me) but they're fine in the foot. if you have room I suggest some padded inserts in the bottom too..

My costume requires these kind of boots with straps. Are these good too?
