Tie pilot boots

Post by Quinnthespin »

Hello, I’m new to the whole costume building and I was planning on doing a tie pilot, anyone know of a place where I can find tie looking boots that have big sizes? I have quite large feet

Hi Quinn,

First off, welcome to the forums. Honestly, you can surprisingly have decently luck getting "jack boots" on ebay. That was where I got my first pair, they were shipped from China, and were decent. Search for "jack boots", "jackboots" or "knobelbechers" at eBay, and see what turns up.

Here's a comprehensive conversion chart, since many jackboot sizes are in EU sizes.
