Exclamation Cosplay Base Boots

For the life of me I can't find the boots I need for my cosplay! I have been to Ebay, Shoebuy.com and all kinds of other sites looking. The ones I do find are too expensive for me to purchase. All I need are plain, over the knee white boots since I will be putting boot covers over them, but I need to get them ASAP and I have a very limited budget. Suggestions from anyone on where I could find some would be greatly appreciated.

For the record, yes I know I could use heels or flats, but the character wears boots and I want to be authentic if I can at all. If anyone could give me suggestions, it would be appreciated. I had this post in another area, which apparently was the wrong one, so hopefully it's in the right place now. Help, anyone??

Mens boots or womens boots? Plain or lace up? What's your budget? I've seen white womens 'gogo boots' on Amazon for about $30. If you answer those questions maybe someone will be able to dig something up for you. If you have a time crunch, I'd say go out to the local thrift stores, Payless, and discount stores like Marshalls or TJ Max. Even if you can find a boot in a light color you can paint it white. Search "painting shoes" on the forums and plenty of results will come up.

I need female boots and would prefer it if they zipped rather than laced up. And I would like to pay not over $75 with shipping included. I had a pair picked out in the Cosplay.com store, but since they took their footwear section down, I'm now in a panic.

Like Zil said, Go Go Boots are probably what you want to search.
Most Halloween/party/costume stores have them...actually I've never been to one that hasn't.
