Not yet.  If you'll be headed to either MI or MN, we will be at both this year, probably before the website is ready.

Anyone know about scaboots.com ?

I need to purchase a pair myself and just have no idea who to buy them from.

Morvak, I've bought 2 pairs of boots from scaboots.com. One pair has just been ordered so is en route. The other is a pair of ladies pirate boots which I think are a great value for the money. Very comfy and keep the water and mud out so far (no torrential downpours experienced yet though). They get a thumbs up from me!

Are boots supposed to sag? I was talking to someone who said that it's modern boots that are made not to sag, and boots from the period should sag over time, of course depending upon how fit they are with your calves.

Is this correct? Most photos I see are people that have stiff boots.

My favorite is Native Earth. http://www.nativearth.net/index.html

I've had my two button boots for 10 years, and this season I broke a button. I took the boots back to see if I could purchase a replacement button. The lovely young lady who assisted me went the extra mile in searching through their stock to find a matching button, then sewed it on for me. When I asked how much I owed, she replied, "Nothing." When I tipped her $10.00, she tried to tell me that it was too much. I reminded her that it was only a dollar a year for maintenance, and that seemed very reasonable to me.

Needless to say, I am pleased with both the product and the service.

For a look at authentic reproductions of historical footwear, please visit http://www.galleryhistoricalfigures.com.

Artist and historian George Stuart thoroughly researches and then cobbles the footwear for his exquisite Historical Figures creations. While the quarter life size boots, shoes and sandals won't fit you, they can be an excellent source of authentic designs.

Our image database has a lot of close-ups of footwear, so please contact me about any Figure of interest.

No charge, nothing for sale here.

Enjoy!

I see a lot of men, and women, with Minnetonka Moccasins at the Michigan RenFest.  http://www.moccasinsales.com/

They're relatively inexpensive and comfy.  I own two pairs of the boots, a brown and black pair, and they wear well.  (http://www.moccasinsales.com/minnetonka_mens_knee_hi_front_lace.htm) Some people even cut the fringe off so that they have less of a Native American look to them.  I kept it on because I like the look.

Give a looksee at www.armstreet.com.  I have 2 pair of their footwear, a pair of toe up saracen boots and a pair of poulaines which if you don't know what they are,  they are somewhat similar to jester shoes but not as gaudy.  I love them both and if I ever need another pair, the only change I would make is order the wider versions.  They are most comfortable.   I have had to retire and replace my cavalier boots due to heaviness, and the fact that my feet, ankles and hips threatened to leave me en masse if I ever wore them again , these are great substitutes.  If anyone wants to see them I can send  pics.

Man O Man, Finding nice tall knee boots with a fold over top in Brown without a zipper is really tough. I have been looking for months. Black seems to be the popular choice. Any vendors out there that can sell un-dyed boots?

^ Were they the latchet shoes? I saw they had some on their site that look pretty nice!
