Hello, can any RL judge confirm if these boots are in line with the RL Han Solo costume requirements?

Iíve managed to piece together all the required items for the Han Solo ESB outfit, but need to find the right boots. Unfortunately hessenantique boots donít ship to Qatar and Toddís/Magnoli are out of my budget since shipping is so expensive and I already spent more than I had budgeted!

Thanks for your help!

It's hard to say for sure. They generally look good, but to my eye, they look a little short. I would have to see them on your leg to be able to give you a truly accurate answer. The top of the boot shaft needs to basically touch the bottom of your kneecap.

Any shorter and they likely wouldn't pass...

Thanks, thatís very useful advise. Iíll check with the seller and confirm before I buy.

Would the Derby Rubber boots be acceptable? Theyíre riding boots and look leather like, but not sure how accurate up close. Iím not a fan of rubber or pleather though.
