Hey /cgl/,

I'm in a bit of a dilemma.

I'm looking for a pair of mens leather boots that look similar to the ones pictured. I've been searching all over, and I can't seem to find any boots which would fit a size 12(US) 6'0ft male.

I've looked at Attack on Titan boots for this cosplay, but I'm looking for something wide enough to be able to fit over my pants at the top, yet reaches my knee or falls just short of it.

That being said, while I don't explicitly have a budget, I'd greatly prefer if it didn't exceed around 60-70$ or so.

Does anyone have any suggestions? I've practically gotten the rest of the cosplay figured out.

You're looking for riding boots. Google mens riding boots.

That's definitely what I'm looking for, but most are either too short or made of rubber.

You're not going to find them in leather for cheap. End of story. Drop $300 on boots or settle for another material.

That's true. I see most of the name brand leather boors go for around 200-300$ new.

On the other hand, I'd happily go for boots of an imitation leather or a synthetic material. So long as they aren't rubber, it should work. Buying them used is also an option.

Unfortunately, you're not going to find a pair in your size very easily. If you could fit into a men's 9/10 (women's 11/12) you would have better luck.

I have a pair I picked up a cheap pair for $80 at an outlet and they're "Pink and Pepper" brand. I wear the shit out of them in day-to-day life and the faux leather hasn't begun to wear away or crack. I'd look around and see if you can't find a pair that you could possibly fit into. Shop around Macy's, Zappos, etc. You'll probably be better off trying to find a large pair of women's boots since they're relatively in style. There's a lot of boot clearances happening right now because it's summer. You might find a deal.

Otherwise, you might need to make boot covers or drop the cash on a pair of leather riding boots that will fit your size. Good luck.

Perhaps Attack on Titan boots might be the best way to go. They're the exact style I need them in, but my only concern is that they're a little skinnier than I'd like them to be.
