    Comfortable and authentic looking mid cut boot with a secure leather tie around the ankle. They do have a rubberized sole to give traction on the ground.

    Well-made, and looked good on my partner for his first renfaire. He usually wears a size 9, but we ordered a 10 and it fits him perfectly so you may want to order up if you’re concerned about sizes.

    Boots are constructed well, nice leather. Unfortunately these seem to run slim. I’m a regular size 14 mens, and these were much too tight.

    Wow, I had been pretty skeptical about buying a pair of medieval footwear. I took a chance and got these – and I was pleasantly surprised! They are very comfortable (though I did have to exchange my initial pair for a size larger) and broke in easily. They also seem like they are durable and well-made, but I haven’t had a chance to actually wear them in costume to an event yet. But I am looking forward to it! Highly recommend these.

    Perfectly good boots for the price they are. They’re well-made and fit reasonably well. Only downside at first is they’re pretty stiff, but that’ll change with use or if you have a good leather conditioner

    These boots are pretty comfortable. You can wrap the lace as many times as you want, and you have some good mobility. The soles are nice and thick with good grip and padding.

    The photos are a little unclear, but the soles of the toes are pointed. The toes are also tacked down for some reason. I may trim these down, but I’ll want to wear them for a while before making any decisions.
