High Boots without Fringe
Click to Review
The most difficult part of completing a costume is the footwear. Good for just about all periods, these well-made boots are cut from the best glove-tanned leathers and have an all-suede finish. Perfect for faires, frontier outfits, or just plain comfort. They have a comfortable rubber sole, while inside is a 1⁄8" thick, cushioned insole so you can wear them all day long. Men’s sizes 7-13. Available in brown or black, as well as with leather fringe
Wore these this weekend to The Texas Renaissance Festival. First the lace on the left boot broke while tying. Second, same boot seemed to be throwing me to the inside. Later in the day I discovered the heel and possibly other parts of the sole were malformed. Third, by the end of the day the leather on top and side of the foot had ripped and now had holes. The leather is very light weight and the shaft did not stay upright even though tied tightly. The boots look like Minnetonka boots but are NOT. DO NOT BUY.

I got my black hig boots without fringr this afternoon. First off, I really liked the fact that the "tongue" is sewn to the edges of the boot opening, so that it isn't able to move after extended wear. Second, the overall construction of the boots appears to be very sturdy, allowing for rugged SCA/LARP/Ren faire activities. But best of all, they are SO comfortable! I feel confident that I could wear these all day with no worries at all. Thanks for a great pair of boots!

Awful. As mentioned before, the sole is just foam, and will tear after your first wearing. Also, the leather is very thin around the heel, and mine split within two hours of the first wearing. the lacing is also crap, and the holes for lacing are shoddily punched

I got these recently in black and like someone else had said, first time lacing up the laces snapped. So I got some red ribbon to use as laces instead(which works with my garb colors anyhow so no big loss). I had a pair of tall leather mocs years ago for my Ren Faire garb and back then had no option of without fringe so I had to cut it off myself, lol! The newer mocs without the fringe are much better. And the bottoms are made of flip flop like material so you get about as much padding as flip flops, however, if it's not thick enough, you can probably put some insoles in to extra pad it. Better than the old style with just the double leather bottom for sure! I normally wear a size 9 to 9 1/2 in womens shoes, so I got a size 8 in the mens and they fit great. Not too big, not small, quite comfy.

These boots are fine for what they are...just don't expect them to be anything else! They are the Tandy Leather moccasins you made while in Cub Scouts. The sole is a 3/8" soft foam sole with no insole. As such, the boots are lightweight enough to be comfortable, but your feet/knees WILL hurt after a full day's walking! As mentioned by others and in my other posts (See Assassins Creed II/Ezio costume), go ahead and replace all leather thongs in this and other products. They are worthless and will break multiple times. (You can look at them and predict where.) Replace them before they break somewhere where you won't be able to.
