I'm currently wearing a nice kilt set from Scotweb.  It looks real nice and is comfortable.  Except the shoes.  First, they're way to pretty for renaissance festivals.  Second, after standing in them for hours, my feet hurt.

I can (probably) fix the second by getting some insoles.  But the first?

I'm looking for boots (or similar) which would look good with a kilt at a ren fair AND ARE COMFORTABLE.  My feet are smaller than usual (American Men's 6), so I'd need a source that makes smaller than normal boots.  Any suggestions?

Also, since this is Florida and it does occasionally get warmer than this morning's 37 degrees, some decent sandals would also be nice.  Again, any recommendations?

Thanks in advance.

There are many choices out there depending on how much you are willing to spend!  Boots can easily be $150 up to $900.  I will throw in a recommendation for Medieval Moccassins for your sandals.
I have a pair of low tops that I adore.  I keep drooling over the tall boots but they are out of my price range...  You send them a tracing of your feet and they will be sure you get the proper size needed.  They can also do custom soles if needed.  They are family owned, located here in TX and the shoe elves are great to work with!

If you are wearing a kilt, what about buying a pair of ghillies?  We got ours from Native Earth, and they are like walking on air.  Around $100.

Make them yourself!  Look up ghillies on Google!  It's fairly easy, and very comfortable.
