Howdy!

I'm working on an RFT, and was just wondering if these boots are approvable since I can't find any engineer/jack boots even vaguely close to my size!

I'm kinda iffy about those. I'll have the judges chime in.
What size do you wear, if I may ask?

Darn. It's just almost every post I find that mentions shoes, the links are either dead or don't have anything close to my size.

I'm not *that* unusual of a size, I'm US women's 9.

I pulled this from the 501st Jolly Roger Squadron as the boots seem to be close to a RFT. Please check with a costume judge before you purchase anything! I hope this helps and best of luck with your build!


Wide calf ladies boots. Other than the upper strap not being there, these are very close to Sportsmans Guide's Engineer boots. A bit tall, you may need to trim the top down.

Ebay auction for boots http://tinyurl.com/d7q8vm4 (unknown how much in inventory)

http://www.Sportmansguide.com often has vintage, surplus boots from around the world. check thier website as well. Also check for the Size Zip engineer boot at that site. Available in wide sizes.

Leatherup .com has served many here over the years.
http://www.leatherup.com/mp/Mens-Engine ... 41626.html if you have big (or small) feet this may be your ticket. Make sure to check with your local GML prior to purchase since approval is up to them.

Isn't size 9 women's a size 7 men (U.S. sizes)? If so Imperial Boots carries boots that should fit. Definitely perfect boots, as long as they fit:
https://www.imperialboots.com/product/jackboots/

CrowProps also makes jack boots, in ANY size you want (even infant sizes... you just have to contact them directly since they don't list those on the form):
https://crowprops.bigcartel.com/product/jackboot-ot-tie-tailored

There should certainly be other options, as well. I'll see if I can dig up some more, when I have a sec.
