Tall equestrian boots can start at about $70 for the really cheapo ones and get up into the hundreds of dollars fast. Could probably try to find some used, but I don't know how comfy tall riding boots are to walk in all day. Even my ankle ones aren't something I like walking around in for more time than it takes to saddle up and go. Not that they're extremely uncomfortable, but one can find other boots that are more so.

Could always look for some leather half chaps, too. Though some of those are just as expensive as the boots themselves.

ETA - Also, if you don't mind used, ebay. Search for tall leather boots, though you'll probably have more luck finding what you're looking for in the Costume section rather than Men's Shoes.

Riding boota also tend ot not come in larger sizes. For many makers, anything over 12 has to be custom ordered. Hence, $$$. Fun Star Wars trivia, notice how many shots of Tarkin don't show his lower legs. Since they couldn't find boots big enough for his feet, most of his scenes were shot with him wearing his slippers. For the few long shots, he crammed his feet into riding boots about two sizes too small.

Exactly. The ACU digital design is supposed to disrupt the human silhouette from an aerial camera. The pixels are supposed to camouflage the wearer from drone's and other aircraft, both UAV and manned. Apparently it works, as it hasn't been upgraded too extensively since its inception.
