Best boots ever
I have a wide foot, usually requiring a 12 4E, and despite that have had to use an old-fashioned shoe stretcher to make anything close to a comfortable fit in the many cowboy boots I have bought over the past few decades.. Square toed boots with a high arch are really hard to find, especially with a leather sole. Size 12 was out of stock here, so I took the plunge and ordered a 13, having first asked if I could return if they did not fit. They responded...no problem. Boots arrived in time for my 75th trip around the sun on this satellite, and that day I celebrated (wearing my "riding pants" and suspenders and vest as well, which I had bought previously). I swear my Arab gelding looked a hell of a lot better that day with my shiny new boots tucked into his stirrups. (Just need some longer stirrup straps to go over the arch...but I don't use spurs much these days anyway). A natural felt insert helped the boots fit, and they were real comfortable first time on, which counts a lot if you have gout in your big toes!!!. I especially like the height of the leather upper, since my previous 10" boot tops used to catch on the saddle flap at times. I could go on, but you get the picture. Six stars at least.

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.

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.

Boot runs large
I ordered size 9 (my regular shoe size) but this boot runs about one size large and is very wide in the heel. I will need to return for a size 8. Otherwise, the boot is well made, has a leather sole, and looks period.

Serious boots
Admittedly I was a bit skeptical about spending that kind of money on boots. However I was blown away by their quality. I could go to war in these, if I was on a horse and carried a sword and lived in the 19th century. I love them. they are thick, heavy duty and will certainly last a life time. Might leave them to my son. Buying everything I need from this company. All of the items thus far have been exemplary. Huzzah!

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!

Excellent Boots
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.

I ordered size 9 boots after reading reviews that the boots run large. I normally wear size 9.5 boots and still the boots were a little too big. I put insoles in the boots and that really helped the fit. The quality and workmanship of the boots are great. A great addition to my civil war uniform. Overall Iím very pleased with these boots.

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.

riding boots, long
These boots are made basically the same way as was done in the 1860s and issued by the govt., though men could purchase their own boots of a higher quality. Square-toed, they are wide enough for me and I wear a 9-Wide and might have been okay with a size 8-Wide in these boots. Well constructed and sturdy though unlined and your pant legs will probably have to be stuffed into them, but that's how these were worn back in their time. Excellent for reenactment. I shall be Lt. Col. Sawdust!

Good for the Loot
I have a fair number of western boots. Some were for SASS, others for snake country. I will summarize these boots so you can decide for yourself. Overall, for the money, they are a good deal. The boots are not lined so they will sag unless you stuff your pants into them. Soles and heels are leather and will not stand up well to water. I bought rubber sole and heel caps and glued them on with Shoe Goo, also sealing the leather edges, boot heel, etc. My foot size is 10D. I often buy a size larger (since I don't run marathons in boots) in order to be able to remove them; but since I read so much of these boots being oversize, I bought 10 normal width. The length is good but the width is way large. I added insoles. There is no spur shelf so getting these off (with a tight fit) will be murder. The tops of my boots measured 18" in circumference. Since these boots measure 18" from heel to top, without a large circumference it would be very difficult to get your foot into a narrow shaft, tall boot, without a zipper. Ever wonder why people buy tall boots with zippers...this is why. These are the tallest boots I have ever found and I have 6 pairs of high-priced kicks. I bought these for work I do not want to subject $350+ boots to.

Mens Riding Long Boot
I was a little leery when purchasing these boots as the price seemed too good to be true compared to what other boots in the same style run. Reviews overwhelmingly complained that the top opening was too big, which was a godsend for me, I have a hard time finding tall boots because I have massive Calf muscles and almost every boot is nowhere near loose enough in the stovepipe to get up my leg. These ones were perfect. Great value and made very well for the price. Toe is very very square, but i like it, reminds me of civil war era dragoon styled riding boots. Would buy again.

Great Boots!
These are fantastic boots. I have been eying them longingly for a while and finally ordered. As of this review, I have been wearing them for several weeks and have to report that they are excellent! The leather is high quality. These are well made, serviceable boots that would easily stand up to a day in the saddle--they are not cosmetic props. I was a little concerned at first because I have a difficult time getting a good fitting shoe, so I am cautious about ordering footwear I can't try on first. The other reviews are spot on about the sizing. The boots run large, so order down. I wear orthotics and envisioned winter hunting socks, so I ordered a 9 when I normally wear a 9.5 I have my orthotics in and thick socks and have a near perfect fit (they are actually just a tad on the roomy side, but that's what I wanted). Great boots!

Riding boots
These boots are very nice and comfortable. My only dislike is that the top of the boot is a little too wide. I am tall and thin. The width is suited for a much bigger calf.

Lovely
Most people say order a size down. I would go so far as to say order two sizes down. I wear a size twelve, normally. But the size 10 boot fits perfectly. Solid construction. Better than anything you'd find at JC Penny's. I would say that the calf circumference is a bit large. It still works. But it doesn't quite have that narrow look all the way up that is seen so often in the old pictures. I do think they are worth the price.

Great Value
After reading many of the reviews before purchasing the boots, I decided to go with my gut feeling. I wear 12.5 boot and decided to stay with the size 12. The fit was perfect. The toes were a little more square than I like and the spur ledge was a little narrow, but all in all great boots and a great value. I was amazed at how fast I received my purchase. Great customer service.

Leather bound awesomeness!
Love these boots! I have been burned on lesser quality boots, but these have more than made up for bad choices over the years. The fit is perfect - I went a whole size smaller based upon other reviewers recommendations and after speaking with a very nice and patient company representative. The height is perfect - I wanted something I could wear my knee breeches with without leaving a gap. They are also easy on, easy off - a major plus! Furthermore, the boots are stylish for multiple periods - no need to look any further. And have I mentioned comfort? These fit the bill. I would buy again - and perhaps I shall! Best investment I ever made, worth every penny!

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.

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.

Snug but fragile
Within two seconds of putting these boots on for the first time, one of the buttons snapped off around the ankle. Considering this is a special order item, it was more than a little disappointing. On the other hand, these boots are very comfortable, easy to move in, and a much better fit than the Captain's Mid-Calf Boot of the same size.

I bought these to go with a steampunk outfit for a recent renaissance faire and could not be happier! The boots were quite comfortable, held up to the rain and mud with no problem, and fetched several compliments along the way. They're sitting pretty in my closet now ready to go again to their next event.
