The boots are probably going to be the hardest thing to source, but that's largely dependent on the size needed. There are tons of options, actually, on eBay...but they tend to all be small sizes available. The biggest complaint I see when it comes to sourcing boots is the calf size being too small. I have a hard time with this as well.

I just looked on eBay, and there are a few options available right now, again, depending on what size you need. You just need to filter through the results and skip the ones with laces, etc. https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R ... s&_sacat=0

If cost isn't a problem, you could always custom order some from places like Hessen Antiques (http://www.hessenantique.com/Riding_Boots_p/2116599.htm),

Obviously reference the CRL on the boot, and make sure you're picking the correct look. Also, have you gotten on the IOC forums? There's a lot of information available there, as to where to buy (and where NOT to buy).

I just finished my officer kit with a pair of Imperial Boots that I had to get custom work done on to fit the calves. IB does their sales in waves, and come without insoles so you can get your own. I'm pretty happy with them.
