The Crossroads of the Aether
These boots at What Price Glory (http://onlinemilitaria.net/shopexd.asp?id=2124&bc=no) are pretty nice, if a bit pricey, but I don't know if the style is what you are looking for.
Huh. That's rather brilliant. I'll have to look into that.
Thank you. :D
Finding good boots for a reasonable price can be quite a challenge. For those who have tons of money to spend, Son of Sandlar is a top of the line manufacturer that can make boots that custom fit and pretty much to your design. Another good boot in a similar vein is Sod Hoppers. Both have lower end boots in their lines that run in the mid to high $300's to low $400's. I think alot of what you'll want to think about is whether you're simply looking at costuming for a one-time, short event or doing something for the long haul. For the long haul, you'll eventually want to save up and sink the money into a really good set of boots. (I'm having to save my pennies for a set of boots for next year and I vend at Steampunk shows and cons and the such and the prices are still a bit out of my reach for a casual buy sort of thing, so I completely understand... and I can even do these as a tax write-off) Anyway, for a few events, looking into some of the cheaper pleather boots on eBay or someplace like that might get you by. S.D. Helfrich also gave a wonderful suggestion for the spats and they can be constructed out of most any types of leather with minimal tools and worn over a variety of different kinds of boots and shoes with some effect. Good luck!
Check out Roaman's website. They have a, shall I say, wide selection of shoes and boots and the sizes are fairly accurate.
......we'll get to see you in these boots, right?
-begins the search for boots-
my dear lady , may i suggest 'ebay' , search for 'gabby' style , my dear wife is a curvy girl & these worked for her , though not quiet knee high they are a nice looking flat boot with a pointy toe
May I suggest you include men's boots in your search. I always keep an open mind when shopping and often find men's clothing costs less for an almost identical item. Their boots might offer a better selection of low heeled, wider sizes, and wider calfs also. Just a thought.
While not what you are looking for (but might help someone else reading this post), my favorite pair of boots are made by Oak Tree Farms and sold by Sheplers. Beautiful, comfortable, victorian boots that I can wear for 12 hours at a time.
Those are gorgeous boots, but not in my size. Thank you, though!
3 buckel equestrian boots, ladies and mens sizes, custom available. Pricey but worth it.
