Longterm boot search
Post By Guest. 28/02/10, 02:32 pm

See, I really NEED combat-style boots. Nearly every person I will ever decide to cosplay has combat-like boots of some type. No.1 Shoe Warehouse, Hannahs, even The Warehouse have nothing to offer. It's always sole-less, leather, fashion boots that I'm pretty sure I would slip over in. (I'm very, very clumsy.)

Cosworx has these PERFECT ones. However, they only come in mens sizes that I won't fit. At least, I think? I fit size 6 mens quite comfortably, if a little loose. I'm pretty sure thats a size or two too small for Cosworx boots.

There's also this fine fellow from Google to use as a sort of example.

I'm sure everyone BUT me has the perfect boots, as I eyed up quite a few of em at Auckgeddon. D: Kidding...mostly. But still - can anyone point me in the right direction and/or assist me in some other way? Please?

Or is this the sort of thing I have to catch the moment they appear in shoe stores? :/

Have you tried looking for Doc Martens?
They look similar to the Google pair. However, they range from $150 - $300 >__>

Army surplus store on K-road in Auckland has them, new and used. They've got a website too... here is their footwear section.
