So I'm looking for Leia ANH Senatorial boots but I'm a size 12 wide women's or 10 1/2 men's.
I have looked at Payless, Amazon, and Ebay. Most of them have obvious zippers and heels (like over 2 in) or just plain not in my size.
I was refereed to Dinkles http://www.dinkles.com/products_boots.asp . I have worn Dinkles in the past (marching) and had to go up a size (from 10 1/2 to 11 men's) just so they would stop pinching my feet. They run skinny. I can't do that here cause they only go up to size 12.
So any recommendations on boots.

I'm also looking for larger sized white ANH Leia boots. I need size 11 US.

Aren't the heels on dinkles and similar a bit high? http://www.dinkles.com/products_boots.asp

I'd love to get some flats or close to flats as I'm already quite tall and her's are pretty flat anyway.

I saw these but they aren't really that close...

and these are pretty good, but they're pricier than I'd like right now...

Found another option that comes in size 12 thanks to Victoria:

if you remove the cuff and buckles and any stitching that causes it to slouch.

another option, but only goes to a (smallish) size 11:

The first ones look really good... and warm Razz
The later ones all seem rather narrow thou Neutral

I did find these and purchase them
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004C4Q2KM/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I wore them when I was bumming around Portland Or. for several hours and they were really comfortable. They even had room to put inserts cause I need arch support. They also look halfway decent in my opinion for their price. (I managed to hit a free shipping sale)
