Very versatile boots. Whether you are into SCA, LARP, Renaissance, Pirating, Santa costuming, steampunk etc., these boots will carry you through. Wear em' upright, scrunch em', fold em'! We sell plenty of this style boot for ren faire, wedddings & theatre productions! Durable black leather boots feature soft fabric lining, a flat rubber grip sole and a1" heel. Like any leather footwear, these will soften & become more comfortable as you wear them. These boots do not have zippers which makes them more "period" appropriate. Due to requests, we rounded out the toe and made them a bit fuller through the toe box. We still think the factory cut the sole length a bit shy, so please be sure to order a full size larger. This style only comes in black, medium width and whole sizes.
IMPORTANT SIZING GUIDELINES:
The overwhelming feedback we are getting is to order a size larger than you usually wear and you'll be safe. Please keep in mind if you are inbetween sizes or in doubt the general rule of thumb in the footwear industry is to go up in size, not down. You can wear an insole or thicker pair of socks if you overestimate, but you can't chop off your toes if you underestimate!
EXAMPLE: If you wear a solid 10.5 go up to an 12. If you are mostly a 10 and sometimes wear a 10.5, go for the 11. If you wear a 12, you'll need to go up to the 13. Don't let the sole length complicate things. Order a full size larger than you generally would and you should get a great fit.
Please note: We do offer the measurement of the boots although it is NOT the best way to fit your foot. Because your foot will change in arch, shape and size if you measure them standing as opposed to sitting ect., we highly recommend not using the sole length or width etc. Also, don't try to measure your own footwear for sole length because different styles of shoes have different "over hangs" ect. It simply is the least efficient way to fit yourself. Trust us, we've been doing this for several years now. Thus, the best way is to use the example above. However, if we don't include the measurements, people want them. Please do use the above example as your primary method of selecting your size and you'll be much more satisfied. Thank you.
