Question About Boots

Recommended Posts

Hello, all! I've been lurking here on the FISD for a long couple of years, soaking in all the information, dreaming of a far-off BBB day. But I had a question: in 2019, what would be the best option for boots? Where should I get them? How much could I expect to pay? Thank you in advance!

Did you end up going with Imperial Boots, and if so, how is the sizing? I’m starting my first TK build and heard that the Imperial 421s run small and should, therefore, be ordered a size up. I normally wear a US 11 or 11.5.

IB  are great boots but run a bit snug for sure, so like Rat mentioned order a size larger than you usually wear.  I also recommend keeping shoe stretchers in them while not in use. as damp leather can tend to shrink as it dries.  I use the kind with the springs as seen below.

That’s a great tip about the shoe stretchers! I definitely hadn’t thought about that. Sounds like I will definitely need to order a size up when IB opens up their next wave. Thanks!!
