Black Premium Leather Knee-High Boots

(55 customer reviews)


  • Fine-quality, knee-high black leather boots; approximately 18 inches high 
  • Leather is soft, sturdy, and durable — crafted for all-day wear at a festival or event 
  • Soft insole and 1.25″ heel means you can stand comfortably for hours
  • Sizes 5-13 available in whole sizes. They wear a bit larger, so if you typically wear a half-size, these should do the trick
  • Pair with an ancient-style or modern kilt, the hiking-boot insole is the only deviation from a traditional Renaissance-style black leather boot
  • 8 Button lace-up design opens the boot all the way for quick & easy removal


Black Premium Leather Knee-High Boots

These knee-high black leather boots offer all the quality of a custom-made Renaissance-festival boot without the typical markup. Enjoy the comfort and durability for all-day wear while remaining true to the Renaissance-style; the only difference is the hiking-boot insole, but we’re sure you won’t mind the added comfort! While sizes 5-13 are available, these elegant leather boots tend to wear a bit larger, so give them a try!

Additionally, for the larger-calved Celtic festival patron, these boots feature a unique lace-up split-side design providing added flexibility in the calves, as well as an easy-on, easy-off experience. We’re sure you’re going to love them – but if you don’t, we’re happy to provide a full refund, minus shipping. 

We add extra leather where the boot overlaps so that they adjust to accommodate those endowed with large calves. 

Boots adjust to fit nearly all calf sizes. 

How to lace your boots: 

These boots come in whole sizes only and fit true to size. Our boots tend to run on the roomy side as far as width goes. Generally people with wide feet still order their regular size.

If you normally wear Men’s Size 9 – order size 9.
If you normally wear Men’s size 9.5 – order size 10.

Women’s sizes: Women’s sizes tend to be 1 to 1.5 sizes smaller than men ‘s sizes by our best judgement.
If you normally wear a women’s size 8 – order size 7.
If you normally wear a women’s size 8.5 – order size 7.
If you have an event, order two pair and we’ll be happy to take back the one that doesn’t fit.

    Good and prompt service. Quality product.

  2. Dave Crago (verified owner)

    Love the boots, perfect for wearing with my great kilt and modern kilt. The service from The Celtic Croft was amazing.

  3. Blake Harrington (verified owner)

    Awesome quality! Very satisfied with these boots!

  4. Doug Strudwick

    I bought these for my wedding in 2013 and to this day they the most comfortable footwear I own. I still wear them and they have begun to get only a little bit run down. Daily use, light hiking on the local paths with the family, I love these boots, time for a new pair!

  5. Joseph K (verified owner)

    I was somewhat skeptical for a knee high kilt boot at this price point but the quality is amazing. The leather is heavy and the details on the boots are great. I’m totally satisfied and have and am buying more from them.

  6. Michael B Pridgen (verified owner)

    Extremely comfortable. I stand on concrete floors for ten hours a day, five days a week. These boots were comfortable fresh out of the box and my feet feel so much better. I have had them for two weeks now and I wear them at work and on days off. These boots are far more than a purchase; they are an investment…an investment in taking care of my feet. I am just fortunate that I can maintain my preferred style and still be comfortable. A word of advice to other shopper (that another review said and it helped me) when ordering boots, there is a difference between standard shoe sizes and boot sizes. Order by boot size. My shoe size would be a “10”, whereas my boot size would be a “9”. If in doubt, get a place that sells boots to measure your foot.
    I love these boots immensely. I will be recommending them to all my Renaissance/pirate/reenactor friends.

  7. Stanton (verified owner)

    Good boots. I wear an 8 1/2 and chose the size 8 (only available in whole sizes). The right boot is ever so slightly too small, but I can have the boot stretched out a little to accommodate. I’ll be changing the buttons out with antler buttons for a more rustic look and changing the laces to leather laces as well. Lastly add a pair of insoles for support and they should be set up nicely.

  8. Wendy H

    These are great! They have space for a decent insole but I haven’t needed any yet. I don’t mind the extra width in the ankle because I usually wear them over blue jeans. If it helps anyone with sizing, they wear the same as US Army combat boots.

  9. W. Kelley

    I am very happy with these boots. The quality is excellent and the break in is minimal. One bit of advice – when they say that the boots will fit very large calves, they mean it. If you have average calves, expect to have some lacing left over.

  10. Ceallagh Donnachaidh

    High quality boots. Easy to put on and quite comfortable. Constructed nicely and should last a long time. They look very good, just as good as the boots selling for twice as much elsewhere! I’m planning to wear them with Highland wear of all sorts as well as garb for Ren Faire and Pirate Fests…and all sorts of fun stuff! Very happy with my purchase!

  11. the1kiltedkanuck

    great boots look better than in catalog. Mad complements and ladies checking me out, wife says the kilt looks sexier with them on.

  12. jeff horrocks

    I bought these same boots at a Ren Faire for 300 bucks. THEY ARE GREAT IN EVERY WAY. You don’t have to worry about replacing the buttons because they are secured by a screw so if you managed to get a button off, all you would have to do is screw it back on. I paid a lot more for them than they charge here so this is a great buy. These boots are heavy duty top grain leather and will last at least long enough for you to hand them down to your grand children. They will probably last a lot longer than that. I have many expensive cowboy boots and I like these just as much or even more. They go with both casual and formal and are great in the snow. Buy them now, you won’t regret it.

  13. 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!

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. mark

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

  18. 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.

  19. PCM

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

  20. Gary Neal

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

  21. 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!!

  22. 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!

  23. 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 😉

  24. 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.

  25. 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.

  26. 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.

  27. 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 🙂

  28. 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.

  29. 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.

  30. 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.

  31. joseph b

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

  32. Clif

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

  33. 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!

  34. 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

  35. Rebecca

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

  36. 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.

  37. 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.

  38. 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.

  39. 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!

  40. 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!

  41. 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.

  42. 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!

  43. stacy moorr

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

  44. Stacy

    Very comfortable, excellent shipping time.

  45. Robert P

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

  46. 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.

  47. 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.

  48. 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.

  49. 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.

  50. Rob R.

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

  51. 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 !!

  52. 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.

  54. 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.

  55. 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,
