I absolutely love these boots. They fit great. I would suggest changing out the string on the side so it doesn’t look like a normal shoe string. They are good quality and I expect them to last a long time
I normally wear 11 1/2 US size shoes. These fit with a tiny bit more room. I got the Brown style. They look almost like real leather even though they are not. I like the buttons on the side. The sole is comfortable.

I had to return, some of the buttons came off.
They fit perfect, felt great, and looked even better!

Ordered these after the first 2 pair of boots cause I wanted to make sure they fit true to size. Loved the fitting of the slouched boots and the plain boots from the first order and HAD to go through with ordering these pair. Love the designs from the buttons to the laces and overlaps to close everything together. Beautiful material and color to match. Fits so well and I usually add inserts for that extra sole protection. Each pair I’ve gotten here, including these, breath so darn well and are super lightweight. I can wait to get more in the future!

Beautiful boots and actually really comfy. The interior is somehow softer than most of my actual shoes! The faux leather feels really nice and looks realistic. Also the buttons have a nice little design on them that really adds to it. The only thing would be the string to lace it up you might want to switch to something a little more authentic looking but even that is hard to tell unless you look super close.

With being the half size of 11 1/2, I sized up to the 12-13 size which was the right choice. It leaves me enough room to wear long socks while also leaving room for an insert. Foot inserts are recommended because the base shoe has almost no arch support.
I was a little surprised by the liner lining not being a fabric or leather but rather more of a thin foam. With any long socks you will not really notice it but by hold water more when wet.
Overall I got just what I wanted with the boots.

A bit lower in build quality from some of the renafair makers I have browsed but priced very appropriately considering. Full leather high quality boots of this style easily get up to 200 dollars or more and for what I received I would absolutely say it was a good purchase. They do NOT feel cheap but the buttons on the side for sure seem like they won’t hold up to any abuse of any kind. Only time will tell on that front though. They are comfortable and they are definitely above average for sure. Would recommend for anyone who wants something for sparing costume use.

Absolutely remarkable. There is one thing I know to do and that is take care of your feet and on first putting these boots on I knew I had done right. The fit like the had been tailor made to my foot. Can’t wait for field testing!

They look fantastic. Once on these do feel a little flimsy.. But for the price we are doing photoshoots with them and we realize these are not to be worn for hours at a time. Looks great on and that’s what we needed.

Got these as a present for a friend, and he loves them! They look and feel great, and he can’t wait to take them into LARP battle with me!

I wasn’t expecting much out of these boots, but once I actually got them, I was instantly blown away. They were a little confusing to lace up at first, but I figured it out fast. They’re super comfortable and have held up so far.
