Tk boots

Post by flyinskwirl »

Hello all!

I am having a heck of a time finding jodpur boots for my tk armor. Can anyone recommend a site or retailer? I wear a US size 12-13. Im also a Marine, so I understand what is takes to breakdown and re-dye boots to spit-shine status.

Just looking to get started on something before my kit arrives in December.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Another vote for tk Boots. High quality, and great fit.

Contact them right away, because there's usually a long waiting list.

I've seen other boards raving about the boots from this vendor... Imperial Boots. They have taken the holidays off, however, to return in January.

I bought my Shadow Stormtrooper boots at Zappos, but waiting to hear in my thread as to whether they will be approved or not.

TK Boots has a massive backorder list, which I was put on back in September. I still haven't heard anything from them.

I decided to place an order through Imperial Boots.
Order placed on Oct 27th, shipped on Nov 2nd. For some reason, the package sat in Hong Kong until Nov 17th. I received them on Nov 23rd.
Others have ordered and received their purchase in two weeks, so mine is not a typical circumstance.

I normally wear 8 1/2, but ordered a 9. They fit really well, and have just enough room for a gel insert.
