Hello~. I can not, for the life of me, find any decent boots for my America cosplay. I don't want the boots that are specially tailored for a specific character - those ones usually lack in detail and stuff. I want like.. real boots, if possible.

I also see cosplayers with raised boots, and I was actually looking for a pair like that. Especially since I'm pretty short, lmao. ):

Thanks in advance! <3

Which design?

America's character design has changed multiple times... from having knee high dark brown boots with fur on top, to having knee high black boots with fur on top, and eventually generic black boots under his pants.

I went to a shoe warehouse at the mall and got generic black boots to wear under my pants, for my cosplay of him.

Thanks! I'll look through the site and see if anything there works~.

Well, I was hoping for the black ones. I'd add the fur myself, of course.
I just want something that's legit looking, more military-esque, if that makes any sense.

I suppose I could settle for the boots being under his pants, but there's something about having his pants tucked into his boots that I like~.

I like that look too ^^ Except I'm very very lazy. So i didn't want to put more effort in that i had to, ahaha.

And well, my boots look pretty military-like (they even have camo print inside). I got them from DSW in Costa Mesa... you could probably find the same chain store nearby if you live in America. They were $80 boots though, i got marked down to $30 on Black Friday (lol)

I've ordered stuff from swisslink (Austrian army boots) and sportsman's guide (sam browne belt). Items came quickly in great condition. Tridentmilitary has given me a bit of a runaround on some sizing things and apparently doesn't want to sell me an item I've asked about several times, so YMMV.
