Fits well
I'm acting, singing and dancing in Fiddler on the Roof and these boots work well for the part.

Substantial Boots
Excellent service, packaging, price, shipping time, size, and nice quality. Perfect boots for a Ringmaster costume.

Great prop boots
The boots fit. The zipper is on the inside of the calf hiding it for pictures and can easily be covered if needed. Sturdy enough for cosplay outings. Just a great jack boot replica for half the cost you would fine elsewhere. Very happy with purchase.

Just what I needed

Too small
The calf of the boots were extremely too small. Especially for a size 14 boot. It cost $ 21.00 to return the boot. Not happy!

Though the right boot did fit my foot, the left one was damaged. The zipper was broken. Very disappointed with it to be honest

Perfect for the Falcon
These boots worked better than I thought. Made my Han Solo costume that much better They are very well made. And very warm and toasty. These boots are going to last a long time.

Good value
Nice pair of boots for the price. As noted by other reviews, the tend to run large so I bought the small which fit my size 9.5 men's foot well.

Not Really a Gentleman's Best
I would rate this lower but it's not an item produced by the Historical Emporium so I feel it's not fair to judge them. These boots are from Funtasma and the quality's not that great. The "leather" material is not as stiff as you'd expect from a boot. Also I'm a size 9 in American sizes and these boots were just a bit too loose. I got the smallest size and they were too big. BUT as far as service goes, which was through the Historical Emporium, really good. They arrived on time and I suppose are priced fairly but I would say go the extra mile and purchase one of their more expensive boots.

Captain's boots
The boots are a good fit. I wish there was a slightly smaller size, but they are comfortable and I can drive a manual transmission car without issues using the clutch. Haven't tested them in winter yet, but with a warm pair of socks, should be great for the winter galas.

For the money you can't find a higher quality boot out there.

No very good
These boots are really not great. I feel like the sole will start coming apart after a couple wears. FYI I found rubber riding boots that look nicer, have a better sole and are the same price.

The boots fit perfect! The zipper on the side makes them very easy to put on and take off.

Comfy, stylish, a bit fiddly to apply, but...
As it says: these shoes are comfortable (bought an M for a foot that typically wears a US 9.5 European 43; felt a bit big but still worked great!) and look amazing. Material is good quality, and they have been successfully worn for multiple full days of walking around in costume. Gaiters are a bit fiddly to apply (required a helper), but that's just how gaiters go. Great value; would recommend.

Stunning and Exquisite!!!
The boots looked so much more wonderful in person. They were ordered for our wedding but seeing how versatile they are and how well the craftsmanship is we will be using them for so many costumes!

Exactly as pictured
These boots were perfect for what I needed, and are actually fairly comfortable. I'm a 10.5, so I had to get the size that was a little big but it's not so big that I'm worried about wearing them. They have a good weight, they're not cheaply made. Perfect for a distressed working class costume. My only criticism would be they are hard to put on with the covers on; but that might be because I haven't figured it out yet. The boot themselves have zippers but they aren't easily accessible with the covers on.

Cool Boots but too big
I was looking for a dashing pair of boots and the idea of having convertible boots struck my fancy. Sadly, despite ordering the smallest size (small for size 8-9) they were still too big. I usually wear a size 8 1/2 so I don't understand why they were too big. Also, wearing the low boot is fine but it's very plain looking. 3/5 for cool concept but could be a bit fancier and be nice in a smaller size.

Pirate Boot
The boots give me the final touch for my Halloween costume for the upcoming Disneyland Halloween Party. The appearance is excellent.

MY husband really likes the boots. It was a purchase I made so he'd have boots that were neat looking and comfortable for times he dressed in costume for the SCA or Steam Punk events.

Nice quality for a faux leather boot. Comfortable fit. Color is more dark grey than black but I like it. Will compliment my pirate costume.

They do the job!
Excellent "pirate style" boot for professional or casual costume wear. Styling works beautifully, AND they are comfortable and well made. Completely undetectable that they are made of faux leather which of course drops the price of the boots considerably. Can't beat it for the approximate cost of $100! Very happy with the purchase. They will be used regularly for a costumed impression I provide for a local company.

too small
Took a chance and ordered small size as they are mens. I wear 10.5 to 11 in womens. Therefore they were too tight for me and returned them. The faux leather was a little stiff but a nice looking boot.
