As long as there are no visible laces or obvious zippers (meaning front zippers and outside zippers should be covered) and they reach at or above the calf (but not above the knee), you should be okay.

And remember the belt should "match" the boots, meaning...brown belt = brown boots....not brown belt and black boots or visa versa.

As for the ones you picturered?

1 and 2 are perfect (with respect to the views that are available).

3 may be questionable, with the closure readily visible on the outside.

4 may be okay, but they are definitely "unique"

My advise would be to select 1 or 2 Wink

I like 1, 2 and 4. Three isn't that bad, but you do see the zipper, and as it is on the outside, it is more noticeable than when on the inside of the leg Smile

Personally I prefer 2. But that would depand on your belt colour. 1 and 4 would also be ok.

Thanks a lot. I start with 4, because I can easily modify boots I'm wearing for the costume now. 1 or 2 will by my future plan for Jedi boots if modifications with 4 will look very bad. Once again thanks a lot for help.

I do like 1 and 4, and I personally wouldn't mind adding them to my costumes. I'm betting they'd cost a pretty penny though.

I like number 4 the best since, as has been noted, they are the same boots Master Windu wears. Plus they just look awesome. Cool
