Although these boots were out of stock on this website when I was seeking the perfect pair for my Han Solo costume, I found a pair that Todd's Costumes had listed on e-bay due to having a factory defect -- and they were only 1/2 size bigger than my regular boot size. Naturally, I chose to roll the dice and came up with a win.
Now, I understand the description clearly states that the boots run big, however, I always put a pair of work boot insoles in every pair I buy. They fit absolutely perfect in the foot for me. Shaft height on the size 12 boots after break in was perfect. They will slack a little around the ankle and there is no rubbing/chafing from the inevitable folding/creasing. I wore these almost every day after receiving them to break them in around the house and while running errands. I proceeded to wear them for several days in a row at DragonCon this year and there wasn't even a hint of a blister on either foot.
The only variable that was imperfect about the purchase was that I have 18" calves. I had some trouble finding a cobbler who was willing to stretch them for me without modifying the boot with elastic or installing a zipper. Once I found the right store who stretched them out for me, I had zero issues. The leather these boots are made from is high-quality and will tend to shrink back if you do not stretch them long enough (mine took two trips 5 days in the shop). At this point, they still want to shrink, but now that they are stretched and broken in, I can manage to stretch them gently by hand. There were no signs of distress on either the liner or the shell of the boot shaft after stretching.
On the note of the factory defect, even after closely examining the provided pictures of the blemish, I cannot even locate it on the physical boots.
**NOTE** The soles of these boots are EXTREMELY SLIPPERY. I almost killed myself a few times trying to stop/change direction on carpets and smooth surfaces during break-in. I was able to remedy this in minutes by doing the running man on my rough concrete driveway and by using some sandpaper on the edges of the sole on the inside of the stitching. The heels, however, came with traction out of the box.
Lastly, as always when ordering from Todd's, even if you order from them on e-bay, I received this product the same week I ordered it. Considering that I am in the same state as Todd's Costumes, this is still unbelievably fast.

Todd’s costumes had my order processed and shipped in hours.
I received them the following week.
The boots fit really well and are of really high quality and very accurate to the screen used boots.
Thanks guys , I’m very happy with my purchase.

Todd's Han Solo boots could not be a better representation of the actual boots worn on screen. Not only do they look great, the fit is perfect.On top of all that the craftsmanship is top of the line and I foresee these boots lasting a lifetime. Another Todd's product to add to my growing list of recommendations.

These boots are so nice. I have larger calves, but I can get them over them and they just feel great, not to mention they look amazing. They are one of the highlights of my costume.

Ordered these boots to complete my Han Solo costume. These are nearly perfect. They are efeinetly the best you cn get anywhere I've seen. They do rise on the outside of the upper which is not screen accurate, but that is a small issue and they can be "fixed" by a shoe repair shop. I was slightly concerned about the boot being too tall (I'm 5'6" and wear a size 10., but they still didn't go above the knee before the tops for evened out. The leather is very nice nice, durable yet soft. There are boot hook straps on the inside if you need them. The sole is easy on the feet. I've worn several times in costume (or with jeans) for over five or six hours without a problem.
As far as look, they are magnificent. The boots really take a costume to another level. It don't feel like I'm playing dress up. I feel like a character from the movies. As said in other reviews, they are real riding boots, so if authenticity is important, these are the boots for you.

I have purchased several collectible replicas from Todd's Costumes and I have always received merchandise of the best quality. I am extremely particular about the quality and authenticity of my products. I have been able to purchase items that are not available anywhere else or they are not of the same caliber that I find at Todd's. I have never been disappointed with any purchases from Todd's even if it includes a backordered item. Orders are fulfilled expeditiously and packaged securely. Communication is both complete and transparent via email correspondence. I highly recommend shopping at Todd's Costumes.

These are fine, strapping boots for an imperial soldier, which is the costume I am using them for. They are very tall, I got a size 10 and am 5'7" and they are just about a half inch too tall, such that when I bend my knee the back edge pushes against the back of my knee. This is no fault of the product, in my opinion.

It's hard to find boots in my size (13 US) and lucky for me, the boots available, while a half-size smaller than what I usually wear, fit quite well. Yes, these boots will run big for some and not for others. I have wide feet and very curved toes and while these boots have low headspace at the tip, it's not painful or distracting. I look forward to trooping in them as I've only been wearing them around the house to break them in. I haven't even had to use the boot-hooks I own since they're so easy to slip on and off for me. The only drawback was how long it took to get the boots but I was in no rush and the customer service was exceptional so why would I knock down my review for something so trivial? All in all, a fantastic pair of boots for a very decent price! I plan on recommending these to anyone looking for something similar.

These aren't just costume boots. These are genuine riding boots. I owned Todd's 1st generation boots and they were wonderful, but these are even better! The quality of the leather is much better than before and they feel great to wear.
The construction is solid and they look just like the real screen used boots. The price is excellent as well. Riding boots can cost upwards of $700 or more depending on the manufacturer, but these are a much more affordable option for us Star Wars costumers who are on a budget. Thanks for offering these Todd and company!

Great quality and craftsmanship. Only downside for me is that I have big feet... As such I ordered a size 11.5. They fit nicely at the feet. However the top of the boots go all the way up to my knees. Once I take my boots to a cobbler to get them shortened, they will be perfect.
