Having spent some time talking to them while getting my own boots made, they agreed, exclusively through me, to help a number of other cosplayers get the Holy Grail of Matt Smith footwear!
The shoes they made were very wide ranging in sizings a fit, and all were done to precision.
The bootmakers who kitted out The Doctor, although they are one of the most famous footwear makers for film and tv, they are a small company and deal exclusively with production companies or theatres, and are used to bulk orders for chorus lines or the requirements for the cast of a complete film.
However, through negotiations I conducted with them, they are willing to make boots for Doctor Who fans, so long as the orders come exclusively through me.
This way I can answer all questions prior to making them; arrange for the foot tracings and measurements to be taken and passed on; payments to be made; and delivery globally via my personal FedEx shipping account.
As you can see, I have already arranged a number of pairs, and one of the buyers has posted about it in his blog, Very Well Dressed Hitchhiker.
UPDATEThis service has now been discontinued due to sharp increases in manufacturing costs, and declining quality of finished product. Sorry for any inconvenience
It looks like Magnoli Clothiers has a suitable alternative for season six boots, they are called Pemberly Victorian Boots,http://www.magnoliclothiers.com/pemberly-boots-p-427.html, but it seems cheaper just to order from Steve.ReplyDelete
How much are the shoesReplyDelete
He won't tell you, he only tells you if you message him. And, I've messaged him 3 times and I've had no response... so disappointingDelete
I reply to all requests, so I don't know if you're going into a spam folder or using the wrong email address.Delete
Please message again to firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll happily send the info.
I realize these aren't authentic, but they're not far off (these are women's shoes)ReplyDelete
Approximately how much do they cost?ReplyDelete
They are awesome, how much are they?ReplyDelete

A question I have having searched and found a few alternatives with and without this detail. The recreated boots above have the single lower curved stitch line down to where it ends at the heal. Most of the good views I've seen of these boots have a second stitch line slightly above that run the same. Was one original boots these were similar to or were there some kind of variation?ReplyDelete
You can see here one seems to have it and one not.
