    Great pair of boots, soft and flexible, great walking around boots

    Nice boots, soft material, the soles weren’t quite what I was expecting—if you’ve seen/worn Birkenstock the soles are more like that. I have wider feet, so the seams are a little problematic. Thicker socks seem to help protect my foot from the extra pressure and hopefully stretch the material with extended wear. Overall, for the price, these are decent boots. Would recommend.

    Bought these for my pirate outfit in my wedding. They look great. Nice soft good looking material. Not chincy at all. Only downfall is they are very hard insoles so i had to add cushion to wear them all day.

    First, on sizing and fit: I wear from a US men’s 8 1/2 to a 9 depending upon the ‘cut’ of the shoe. These were ordered as Euro 42/US Men’s 9 and were an excellent fit. I can adjust the foot retention by sock selection. Long days might want a gel insert. I’m 5′ 10 and the top comes to the lower edge on my knee.
    Second, costuming: Plenty of room for pants of any style. Easily foldable top portion to match and accentuate your dress. Plenty of buckle adjustment room.
    Third, workmanship: Material is supple and has a pleasant feel to it. Stitching is quite handsome. Interior is lined with a sewn-in foam that resembles/feels like speaker grille cloth. Buckles are sturdy. Straps are same material and can be shortened well enough.

    Cons: Strong dye smell out of the box, but dissipated over a few hours when aired.
    Overall: An excellent costume accessory with no unpleasant surprises.

    I think that these boots are mostly good if you know what you’re getting. If you prefer style over substance these boots are a wonderful choice. I think that you just have to remember that I believe that these boots are primarily for costume purposes and I have yet to try them out yet, but I feel like they are not going to hold up well trudging around fighting in a forest all day.

    Things that are really like about this boot are it comes in large sizes. I wear a size 14 shoe and they made a size 14 boot which is hard to find in reenactment boots. The sole is very flat and thin and rigid. You will want to wear insoles with these boots. My fear is that my giant 335 lb pushing down on these guys over rocks and sticks is going to snap this sole. I cannot say for sure yet because I have yet to try them out in the day of battle, but they don’t feel as dirty as I would like.

    They look amazing, especially for the price. And the felt lining on the inside is a nice touch. One good thing about these boots is the sole looks like it can be easily replaced if you were to take them to a boot shop. So I will see how it works out.

    I just wanted to add an update to my previous review. I finally got around to wearing them all day. I placed some very thick insoles in them because they have zero padding inside. I am a 14 narrow in shoe size and these boots have a nice tight fit for my narrow feet. However, they are a little too tight whenever you place thick insoles inside them. I am talking about thick soles like the sole brand of insole. I wish that I had ordered one size larger. So if you are going to wear thick insoles with these boots I recommend getting a size larger.

    I bought these boots back in May, I wore them a total of 7 days, a 2 day Ren Fest, a 3 day LARP and a 2 day LARP. They have dramatically worn out on the heel, and unevenly. They are definitely not LARP ready and will wear out quickly . The right foot has worn out almost completely on the inside of my foot and is more than halfway worn down on the inside of my left foot. There are certainly better options for the price. But I imagine these would be great if you were looking for expensive costume accessories
