Shiekh Shoes has the Kalisa boot in Off White on sale for $11.95
http://www.shiekhshoes.com/p-99062-shiekh-womens-pocket-boot-kalisa-89a-boots-white.aspx

Pros:
-Knee high
-Flat
-Room for wide calves
-Has a very convenient inside pocket for smartphones. I have the LG G5 and it fits perfectly with the protective case

Cons:
-Slouch can be a problem for thin legs
-Color is not quite as pictured. It's more cream than white. The difference will be obvious against pristine white fabric.

Still, a good purchase for future costumes as well. I'm thinking about getting another pair in that color and other colors.

Will the shoes be approved in the shade or do they need to be painted? They are a great price and if they will work I am definitely going to get them! LOL

That color works just fine. As long as it is in the white range it does not have to be exactly the color of the dress.

Oh these look good. Sadly, despite them saying they ship internationally, I can't select any other country upon check out Sad

So the search goes on...

Oh no! I'm so sorry. Someone else posted about these on Ebay and they DO ship internationally. Perhaps you can get these? Pretty reasonable price in my opinion.
