Love these boots
I picked these boots up for my Star Wars Obi Wan Kenobi costume this year and they were PERFECT! Size I landed with was a size smaller than I usually pickup (I bought an 8. I usually wear 9+). I ended up wearing a hiking sock underneath so the boot was a more snug fit.

GREAT BOOT
I can't get over the quality for the price of this boot. I wear a size 11 and I ordered an 11. it does run a little large, but as in other reviews mention this about this boot I was expecting it. I just added a thicker sock and the fit is comfortable and pleasant. I can't wait to get them all broken in and have them get that natural "patina" that a good pair of boots deserve.

Excellent Boots
Very nice boots! Hard to find good mens leather knee high boots like this, and these are very well done. Plan on wearing these for multiple reasons! One boot fit slightly larger than the other one, but another sock fixed the problem fine.

They've been AMAZING
I am playing Adam Pontipee for a production of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. I wanted to look authentic, but wear a boot that I could run, jump ,dance and fight in without it breaking down. These boots have been all of the above. I am about 250 pounds, and I have worn the boots every day for a month and have not seen even one hint of degredation of the seams or soles. I am totally pleased and would recommend these boots to my closest friends.

I bought these boots from Historical Emporium because their customer service is so good and I knew in the end I would be satisfied. I called and talked to first them to ensure I had the correct sizing and then ordered them. They came quickly and fit as expected. The toes are pretty square but I knew that when I bought them. That bothered me less than I thought one I had them on. Later I may round them off with a sander but for now I like them as they are. I use them with several costumes I have including a steampunk one and a colonial costume. Good quality.

Great boots!
I ordered these for a staring performer in an Opera production. The first pair was too big (size 8) Mostly I attribute this to the fact that our performer really didn't know his true shoe size. Anyway, the size 7 was perfect. The price was high for us, but I think since these are made of real leather, they will last a long time.

Not bad, Look great
I read the reviews first before selecting my size, which is an 8 1/2 in most shoes and boots. All size eights were already sold out in this boot when I shopped and a size smaller was suggested by everyone I read so that's what I ordered in a 7. It fit pretty good except for my little toe on my right foot with a bit of a pinch so I took it to a boot/ shoe repair place (old school) and they stretched them both 3 times to finally get the fit I needed. The top of my left foot initially got a bruise from the top of the boot being a little too tight initially too until that was also part of the stretching process. Now with a pair of comfort inserts for my foot and heels not a bad fit. Also the double sock wearing on each foot that some suggested made it even better. Since I wear them to play in a band every week I had the shoe maker put rubber heels on to prevent slippage when I moved on stage and also when I was loading and pushing guitar equipment in for setups. I'm still getting use to them but I'm glad I got them. I still find after four or more hours of wearing them continuously my bottom of my feet start to go a bit numb but maybe a little more cushion in the insert would help? I'll find out soon. They're very heavy in weight and construction and really built to last so I expect to get a lot of good years of use from them. I'd give five start except adjustments had to be made really to make them comfortable enough to wear regularly. As for the width, everyone...

Mens Riding Long Boots
Very nice pare of long black leather boots. The boots are very comfortable and easy to put on. I wear a size 10 1/2 shoe. Purchased the size 10, and it fit perfectly. The classic square toe look is very nice. I purchased these boots for riding my Vespa Scooter around town. (^_^) Rather you are looking for a classic boot for dress or play, these will not disappoint. I highly recommended them!

Long Boots
Great boots for the period and place I represent (circa 1850 - Texas). I bought size 13, too big. I exchanged for 11, way too small. I exchanged for 12 and they fit. Still a little tight in the toe, but loose in the heel. I think I need to wear thicker socks. Better a little too big than too small. All in all they are perfect for a theatrical performance utt

Men's Riding long Boot.
These boots are new and very well made. I was pleased to see they were made here at home in the USA. The leather is heavy and the boots will require a break-in period. A bit loose in the heel but perhaps a heavier sock would help this.

Black riding boot review
These boots are great! I've been looking for a simple, tall pair of black boots for years, and happened across these. I'm very glad I did. Comfortable and dashing at the same time. I look forward to wearing them on fall/winter trips.

glad i read the reviews
READ THE REVIEWS! luckily i read the reviews and ended up getting the correct size boots. You do need to order one size smaller for the mens riding long boot. i love the boots. for me being 5'9" the mens riding long boot with 17" height comes up to just below my knee. the reason i give the boots 4 stars instead of 5 is because i discovered with my particular pair, the left boot heel seam to the sole is not water or air tight. i noticed after putting powder into the boot and then inserting foot, a small amount of powder shows up on outside of heal on boot. i will jury rig it somehow with some type of sealant as i do not want to send the boots back and be without them.

A Great Boot!
Purchased a Mens Size 10 as was recommended by a staff member. But upon reading other reviews to "size down" I went against my good judgement and ordered a 10. Nope, it was WAY too big. No problemo, I got them exchanged for a Size 9 in record time. The boot itself is very well constructed, and tough to withstand anything. The leather is soft but sturdy, indeed. But the issue was sizing. DO READ the reviews as well as mine that say to "size down"! Example: I wear a 10D, but had to go with a 9E (I believe these boots are E width no matter what size you get). Thou, the size 9 boot were a tad loose in the heel box and vamp...no problemo. I slipped in a pair of Dr. Scholls "dimply" footpads and wore a pair of thick athletic socks..!BAM!...a nice snug fit, BUT with a tad of heel slippage that you ACTUALLY want because as the toe box and vamp wear in around your foot, (and hopefully you walk heel to toe/ military march) your heel eventually settles into the heel cup for a really great fit! I also knocked in some metal heel taps because I destroy boot heels from wear n tear. Anyway, SIZE DOWN 1 FULL SIZE (no half sizes) than you normally wear and you will very satisfied. I will shop from Historical Emporium again!

great boots
These boots do run large, I wear a 10 in most shoes/boots so I did order a 10 but they were too big. I exchanged them for a 9 and they fit great. I really like how they are constructed, well worth the money.

Boots run wide
This was my second pair of Men's Riding Long Boot. I love the leather. Subtle pebble grain like a football. These boots are exactly as tall as they claim and for me were right at the top of the back of my knee so sitting was perfect. The tops are cut big so there is plenty of room for even a bulky pant leg. These boots appear to be well made regarding the soles, heels, and stitching. The toes of the boot are nicely tapered and then squared off. The front sole under the toe is wider and very sharply squared off. The tops are unlined. The inside foot of the boot is wide. I'm a solid "D" and these felt easily like an "E" or "EE" width. Even with a size 12, SuperFeet insole added, these boots were right at the edge of still being too big, not in length but in volume. You won't find a better tall boot at this price point. They look GREAT if you can get a good fit.

Just what I was looking for. Not as tall as some of your other offerings. Just the right size. Much better than the plastic covers that came with my St. Nicholas outfit. My western boots just didn't look right, even here in western Nebraska.

The boots looked even better in person and are unexpectedly comfortable to wear! The craftsmanship on them is very impressive! These handsome boots are made far better than any modern equivalent. Once again I am thoroughly impressed with the quality of items carried by this shop.

Men's Cavalry Boots
As a life long reenactor and cowboy action shooter I am constantly looking for new "personas" to assume. It is very important that my character appear period correct in every manner, but most importantly his dress. I research my persona extensively. When I decide on the clothing for my character I invest heavy research to find the best quality articles of clothing for the best price. Historical Emporium has been a mainstay for my clothing throughout the years. I will continue to return to Historical Emporium because I know I will receive excellent customer service, quality merchandise and fair prices. The boots were better than expected. Top quality and excellent fit. Many thanks!

These are great value for money and exactly as described. The soles are slick when new as with any full leather sole. When I get some wear in them, I will get a traction sole and heel applied. you would need to pay at least twice as much money elsewhere to get a boot as authentic and as well made as these. They do fit a little large, but with thick socks are comfortable.

These are REAL
Very good experience all around. The product was excellent (Black Cavalry Riding Boots) and customer service was very helpful. The boots only come in whole sizes and I am usually a 10 1/2. I ordered 11 and they were way too large. I spoke with customer service and they were quite helpful with tips and eventually helped me exchange for size 10's. Very easy and relatively quick turnaround on the exchange. The 10's fit great by the way, the boots run a tad large for their sizes. I went riding in them today (2 different horses) and they were great! Very authentic look, feel, grip and construction. Oh, the sole at the toe was a bit too, ok, WAY to square for my liking, so I rounded them off just a bit on a grinding wheel and re-blacked with a Sharpee marker. Perfect.

They are just as represented and are real leather. I could not find anything suitable after looking in local stores. They will complete my costume. The only problem was the fit. I ordered 1/2 size longer than usual and length is fine but the instep was way too tight. They would be good for a narrow foot but not wide feet with a high instep. I could not stay in them long enough to think of breaking them in. They are now at the shoe shop for stretching.

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.

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.

Exactly what I've been looking for
These boots not only fit perfectly, but look the part for just about anything I could have wanted them for. I ordered them just my size, if not half a size smaller and they still fit wonderfully. They do go up pretty high when pulled taut, so don't expect them not to look both tough and somewhat feminine, exactly like any good swashbuckler. Historical Emporium really is fantastic, I would gladly recommend these to anyone along with this site.

I needed a high top boot like this for a costume. These were the best. They look good and fit my needs. The best part is, I have a wide flat foot and cant get it though the neck of some boots. I went one size larger on these to help, but my foot fits easily into these. Miracle and much appreciated. I was pesimistic they would work, but they did and they were the only high top boots like this I could find on the internet, so hip hip horay.
