    Boots look amazing. But the sizes are iffy. I wear a 12 and I ordered a 12. Got A LOT of room. I have to wear 2 pairs of socks with them. And the toe is a little high. I wore these on my motorcycle for our annual Kilt Run and it was hard to get my toe under the shifter. Had to slide it roughly under it. So a shorter toe box would work better IMHO. But they do look cool

  2. Mike Christie

    I was worried about buying the boots on line because they never fit right. I wear a half size normally and sizing is in whole numbers. The website recommended I go with the next whole size down. I was skeptical but they were right. The boots arrived and fit great. I am looking forward to wearing them with my Kilt.

  3. Andrew V

    High quality boot, wore with dressier than casual, but not quite full dress. Would work in either setting. Also very comfortable, and much warmer than Ghillies. Service, as always, was terrific.

  4. Paul Cash

    Love the look and received many compliments during a local Ren Faire! That said the leather could be softer but that can be worked with and they are hard to lace and keep snug around the foot. I did find that Leather laces held better and were easier on my hands as I snugged up the laces. Great boots and a great price! Friendly informative help and the fastest delivery I have seen in ages! Highly recommend!

  5. Jack Williamson

    I’ve worn these boots for about 2 weeks before writing a review. The break in time was negligible, the comfort is unrivaled, the looks and cost are unbeatable.
    The boots are roomy enough to put inserts in, and if you have high arches, I highly recommend doing so. These boots are well worth the money, and then some. Get these boots you won’t regret it.

  6. Michael P

    Saw some 8 button boots at the Ren fairs for 3 times as much, but these are 3 times better than those. Better souls, leather, comfort. I am so glad I saw these here and decided to get them.

  7. Dwight

    Amazing quality made to last and extremely comfortable. Price was a bit high but it is well worth the price for comfort and quality.

  8. mark

    I am so very pleased not only with the boots but the service… you have gained a loyal customer thank you…

  9. Alex W

    These are wonderfull, I’ve had them for a month now and wear them as often as I am able. These are great quality and well worth the wait. They go great with my utilikilt, and will go great with my renn gear for TRF this year and Scarborough next year. If you’re looking for a good boot at a good price you just found it.

  10. PCM

    Soft and comfortable first time I put them on. Perfect for what I was wanting

  11. Gary Neal

    LOVE THEM! They will be great at the Maryland Renaissance Festival this year!

  12. Marc P

    To say these boots are great would be an understatement. The day I received them I wore them out and they were not only a hit with my friends, but also with me. They are ultra-comfortable and definitely make a statement!!

  13. William T

    Fantastic boots! They are well made, fit well and get a lot of compliments. They look great with either a casual outfit or with your dress outfit- especially if you are attending a function when it has snowed!

    The button lace design takes some getting used to, but once you have the hang of if, you’re good to go!

  14. Cheri L

    After a few weeks of researching prices of these boots, I could find NONE for a lesser price anywhere (and believe me when I say scoured the net!) So, I made my purchase still rather hesitantly due to women’s reviews of this boot not fitting them well (as they are men’s boots). When
    they arrived (on time, even!) I opened the box and immediately fell in love with the boots…however, I remained skeptical of the fit. I put them on and was SO pleased!! THEY FIT PERFECTLY! (even with socks). I have a wide foot and typically wear a 7 1/2 in women’s shoes/ boots. I purchased the 5 in men’s. If you have muscular or bigger calves, the boots are a must because they lace up so are adjustable to your comfort. It is snowy in Montana right now and although these boots are not water proof they are warm with good traction. Thank you Celtic Croft for providing such a fantastic boot at such a reasonable price! I will definitely be making more purchases for family as well as for myself 😉

  15. david g

    These tend to run a bit large but after an exchange with the friendly folks at Celtic Croft I cannot be more pleased. The boots are well made and very comfortable from the moment I put them on. Thanks guys.

  16. Phillip M

    These boots are pure greatness. Have worn them around the house so far, but the fit is good(I run to a EE or sometimes EEE width depending on shoe/boot). They are comfortable and fit well. The styling is good and they don’t feel too heavy. Will definitely recommend to friends getting into Ren Faires and such.

  17. Ryan C

    The perfect blend of the period flair, and modern functionality (referring to the sole/tread). I have calve that are annoyingly at the point between thin and thick, meaning finding knee boots that fit is a serious PAIN. These button/tie boots are utterly perfect to solve that problem. And they’re comfortable.

    Couple all of that and when one realizes that similar-quality and style boots are $800+ at the local renfest just boggles the mind.

  18. Hammer M

    Been wearing those darn moccasins for 14 seasons of Norcal Faire and my feet always hurt. With these new boots, this is the first time I’v been able to do faire and my feet are happy. Added bonus the girls seem to really like them 🙂

  19. Gilbert G.

    Not too bad so far…I have “caveman” feet, so I ordered a larger size. I’ve worn them around the house to get use to the fit, and I have to admit that it isn’t too bad.
    If this first pair works out, I will probably order a second pair later on.

  20. Matt S.

    These boots are every bit as comfortable and well-built as the ones I was eyeing at the local RenFest that cost three times as much, which is surprising since they’re not custom-made, but off-the-shelf standard sizes. Awesome.

  21. John

    I’m very happy with my boots. I usually have problems with boots not being wide enough but these are great. I thought they look good and my wife agreed, but when I received them we both thought they were even better looking in person. So if you think they look good you’ll be very happy especially for two hundred bucks great deal.

  22. joseph b

    Great quality boot. I got several compliments the first time I wore them.

  23. Clif

    These boots are awesome! Very comfortable, and my wife thinks I look great in them.

  24. Wesley

    I received these boots for Christmas, 2011 and have worn them weekly since. I am thrilled to report that these wonderful boots! I am in love with them. No break in period needed and I wear them during SCA fencing practice every week without issue. Thanks for a great product!

  25. Danny Clegg

    I am very pleased with your service. The boots are very well made and will look great with my ancient highlander outfit. They also came very fast. I am gratefull that you called and asked about my address. Excellent!!!!!!! You will see me again in the future. Thanks again for a wonderful transaction and a great pair of boots. Danny

  26. Rebecca

    Rub a little on the anckle, but am very pleased with the look & over-all feel.

  27. Gloria M.

    The boots arrived in excellent time and look good. The leather is good quality and they fit my husband’s foot well. They need some breaking in so that they lay well on the leg with out a crease. Easy to put on. They may have some water leakage because the side comes down and may fold over but that may go away with being worn. The soles are excellent. My husband must have a birkenstock arch in his shoes and the arch fits extremely well in the boots. The boots are a good buy and we hope to have many years of service from them.

  28. Glen D.

    As a former shoe salesperson, I can appreciate quality product. These boots are far roomier than most I have encountered, and wear well with no break-in period. The individual lacing up the side allows for a more custom fit along the calf, and good support for the ankle. I love them, and I got them in less time than a comparable pair custom fitted would have taken.

  29. David G.

    Awesome, just Awesome. Well made and wide. I normally wear a 9D or 9E and they fit me great. There is room for heavy insulated socks or if your like me, insoles. It does take a bit of practice to learn to lace them up quick, but that’s what kids are for. They look great with kilts, shorts, pirate knee pants, etc. The complements never seem to stop.

  30. James N.

    I have to add an amendment to my earlier review…after wearing these all day at the Northern California Renaissance Faire with NO break-in period, I can say they were as comfortable as a pair of old-faithful boots I’ve had for years. I’ll be wearing these boots basically every time I’m kilted-up!

  31. Rylin H.

    I like the fit alright, at least so far – a little loose for a woman’s ankles – but I think the soles are not a hiking sole but a work sole, and they are VERY heavy! I am going to have to take them to a shoe repair person and get them replaced before I can wear them very much. Thank goodness the soles are replaceable!

  32. Jerry S.

    I thought these boots would be great for my reenactment garb but they turned out to be even better than I thought. I fight in these and they stand up to both my Medieval and my native American reenactment clubs! I would highly recommend these.

  33. Jamaes N.

    I waited a long time for these to come back in stock, and they were worth the wait! I did add orthotic insoles for added comfort, but that’s not enough to (pardon the pun) kick about. They will be making their public debut on me on October 15th at the Northern California Renaissance Faire in Hollister, CA. Thanks again, guys, for a great product!

  34. stacy moorr

    I ordered both the black and brown boots. I am very happy with both. They look great and are very comfortable.

  35. Stacy

    Very comfortable, excellent shipping time.

  36. Robert P

    Very pleased. Great boots; great, affordable price for this amazing quality.

  37. David

    What a wonderful surprise – I have high arches and wide feet – the boots fit just fine!!! Excellent quality leather and soles – a terrific bargain.

  38. David

    What a wonderful suprise – I have high arches and wide feet – the boots fit just fine!!! Excellent quality leather and soles – a terrific bargin.

  39. Robert K

    Very happy with the quality. The size 9 boots are the right length for my size 9 foot, no surprise there. However they are a bit roomy in the foot. No problem. I just added a footbed (like Dr Scholls) and the fit is now great.

  40. John W.

    For the price they are worth it. Sizing tends to run big and I would not try to climb a mountain in them, but they look great with my kilt.

  41. Rob R.

    Great looking and comfortable boots! All day at Faire or Fest? No problem!

  42. Ricki

    I received my Beautiful boots they were worth the wait !!! I really like them I look sexy in my new black boots ,, Thanks again so much !!

  43. Kaurina Smith-assitant manager here at The Celtic Croft

    When we got the boots in stock I had to have a pair I was very excited to be able to wear them to the next festival, but when I tried them on I was disappointed to find out that they are not very comfortable. I have small ankles and the back support pushes into them and rubs, other than that they were wonderful but not the right fit for me 🙁 I have heard from other women that they had the same problem so keep in mind if you have small ankles you might run into this problem but if you aren’t sure, order a pair and if they don’t work you can always return them.

  45. Daniel Q

    These boots are the most affordable Ren Fest style boots I have ever found. They almost fit my abnormally muscular calves @ 20-22 inches at their largest. I can get them on with some considerable lacing and have the fit perfectly but for ease I found a shoe store who could sew in an extra piece of leather to make lacing a breeze. Great boots Great Price I would recommend these for any Ren Fest dweller.

  46. Lucas R.

    I am just writing this note to let you know how pleased I am with my new boots. Did not get a chance to break them in before wearing them to a recent Scottish Fair. I expected to get a lot of blisters and to exchange the boots for different and more comfortable shoes. I wore them all day and was on my feet walking all day and never have I had a more comfortable pair of boots. They were great!!! I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for boots.
    Thank you,
