Boots Boots and More Boots!

You have selected your costume and are in the process of getting matching footwear. We support boots as the footwear of choice, of course feel free to wear sandals or sneakers if that is your preference.When choosing boots here are some tips:

*Buy boots at least 1/2 to a whole size larger than what you normally wear to leave room for insoles or extra socks.

*When buying a wedge look for one with a rubber heel as opposed to a wooden or hard heel.


*Stay away from stiletto boots, if you want a heel choose stacked square heel for comfort.

*Also, pointed tip boots are not road friendly, round or square toed boots give your toes room for the jamming.

*Slouchy boots will slouch, you can get a shoemaker to add eyelets and lace up the back of your boot if it is too slack.

*Smooth leather or faux leather boots spray better and a easier with regular spray paint. For suede boots buy fabric spray paint.

*Consider covering the boot in fabric, again a shoemaker can do this for you.

* With patience, primer and a steady hand any boot can be transformed with spray paint to match your costume.

*Say no to fur.

I love boots for their convenience since they double as a purse! However, if you have short legs like me, I recommend sneakers which are more forgiving in terms of the leg-line length. I'm goin to use my gym shoes (since they'll be worn in and they happen to match my costume!) that are made for running and walking on road surfaces. So no shin splints for me when the road march starts!
