Ok that wasn't what I said or even asked..But ok..Where are you looking? Are you only looking at one or 2 stores? Or are you doing a basic "boots" search online? If you aren't specific then you won't get results..You are giving us ZERO information..We can't help you if we have no idea what you are searching, what words you are using, or even what style or look you are even looking for..

There is a metric fuckton of online shoe stores that will ship worldwide. Hell, even Amazon has shoes and boots for men and women. If you want help searching for something very specific, we can probably help you find specialty shops, but for something you're going to be covering with a boot cover anyway? The internet is your oyster.

"boot covers" aren't for covering boots. They're covers that give the illusion you are wearing boots because the right boots for the character are often hard to find or expensive. Usually people wear them with regular shoes.

LOL, and there i was yesterday trying to put these covers on boots and i already thought they didnt fit at all.
I feel dumb. But tbh, it doesnt look good when wearing these with regular shoes.

I'm not a huge fan of bootcovers, personally, because I also don't think they look that good in most cases. There are tutorials where you can make your own fake boots that look better, although real boots are always the best, imo.

Sometimes you can find good boots on ebay but it depends on what size you are. If you have feet in the 42-44 range, you can still possibly find women's boots that will fit (riding boots, etc). Occasionally you can get a good deal on surplus military boots and those might have the right size, but they're more expensive.

http://www.tridentmilitary.com/Boots.htm

This place has a lot of military boots (not sure what style you need), and I think they'll ship to the Netherlands.

I have a tall pair of German boots I need to get rid of that I'd sell for pretty cheap plus shipping but I doubt you're my size (I think they're a size 42). There's nothing wrong with them, they just don't fit my 17-inch muscular calves.
