I'm wondering, is there someone that makes boots like the ones Imperial Officers wear in the movies? I'm not sure I'd anything to go with them, but I'd like to own a pair or too. Lest you ask I am male, and I've had a devil of a time finding any boots that go up to the knee like that.

Oh, and I dabble in fiction, and I have two female characters that I want to have heeled boots, and Daala's picture here looks just about perfect:

What kind of boots are those? Is the heel low enough one could run in them? And could those boots be put on without and zipper on the in seem?

One of the characters litterally took a Wehrmarcht sytle dress jackboot and had it resoled to have a heel like Daala's. Can that be done? And would it look like Daala's boots, more or less?

Anyway, I firgured this'd the right place because I imagin making imperial costumes would require some knowledge of boots. Thanks :)

I know nothing about costuming, but I stumbled across a site that led me here:http://www.tridentmilitary.com/Boots.htm

I suggest the German Army leather guard boots or the Soviet officer field boots.
