So i was looking over the photos of of the Poe suit photos from NYCC 2017



Something i noticed a little differences from TFA like the little front piece that has a little dome seems to be two separate pieces instead on a one piece with the dome part being made of the same material as the upper.

I noticed the grey coloured padding on the inside which made me think these were riding boots and that's the extra padding that rides against the horse.



So armed with this i went looking and found these

Obviously they would need cutting down..

What do you think ?

Cheaper elsewhere for 19 pounds. I think manufacturer is called HMK?

i don't think it's that tall though, and it'll be pretty hot in this one i guess.

They've been cut down.. look at the NYCC pics, the inner padding (I circled it on the picture - used in riding boots for when the riders legs are against the horse) travels to the top and it looks like there should be more..

on two buckle mucker boots the padding stops before it reaches the top as seen below)



*EDIT GIL: Lets not have multiple threads discussing the same thing

The part that would show looks like a good match. No exposed closures or zippers. I can't see a reason to disagree them but I'm not part of the app team at all.

Did we ever figure out a good supplier of the boots for the US?

Yeah, if someone finds some boots in the US, please post it. I need a TLJ pair myself...

If they'd be worn exposed like some of the TLJ pilots, probably not. We don't usually accept zippers on the front of boots unless they're hidden...

Has anyone found a good option for boots in the US? I can't find anything that looks remotely similar and doesn't have a big old zipper up the front.

I found these on US ebay
https://www.ebay.com/itm/132448064717

The brand as a couple styles with the right type of lowers. If you're covering the uppers like TFA, I think you're good.
