Hey all, so I'm in need of large black boots. Trouble is I'm men's US size 16 extra wide. Google, Amazon, and Ebay have proven to be fairly useless in my search here, so I was wondering if the community had any suggestions. I'm trying not to go with a custom made thing since all my inquiries there have been fairly prohibitively expensive. I have tried making my own and apparently I'm not very good cobbler so I think that's out too. I've gotten these in the past ([url]https://www.amazon.com/Pleaser-Funtasma-Boots-Riding-Military/dp/B01C7U1GVM[/url]) and they kind of work, but both them and my feet ultimately fail as neither was designed for that kind of stress. Any suggestions are appreciated, thank you.

Have you looked up Magnum brand boots? Those are the recommended brand for Captain America and I highly recommend them as they are very comfortable and lightweight, but tough. (They do run on the expensive side, upwards of $160 for a new pair. I got mine used for around $30.)

The Magnum stuff looks good but sadly won't suit my needs, unless I missed something. Those are pretty modern, while I'm looking for a more medieval/fantasy/superhero style. Basically knee high, and just plain, unadorned black. I do appreciate the response though.

Wow I don't have any suggestions other than the custom route, or US Civil War boots:

I wear US 14 and I went with the rather cheap-looking Funtasma due to it being the only 14 kneehigh boot I could find.
