its not a style, it's boots that you modify. plain black (since thats what you have above) work boots would work, lots of folks use those or even the treadsafe black shoes. boot covers, combat boots (modified). lots of things. covering regular old steel toed construction boots with boot armor and shin guards seemed to work just fine with me. you're gonna look like you're bondage mando with boots like the ones above.

heh. no, thatd be my costume, not yours :P
jsut keep your eyes peeled at yard sales or flea markets or target/walmart for black boots or shoes you can put armor on and fix up to look like some face stompin mando boots. thats what costuming is, taking little bits and pieces from different places and putting them together in a way that makes it unfamiliar and science fiction looking.

I use boots similar to these but not as high , also they are hidden under the legs of my flightsuit . These boots arent cheap , i already had them just for wearing (not a goth) they cost me 160 = $259.81 at the current exchange rate ! and the ones in the pic would be more expensive than mines . You get dickies in the US , they do good and cheap  ;)

Another thing to consider with these boots (and actually this applies to a lot of other details of a suit) you have to mindful of something that seems unique and cool, and yet becomes common place.  The boots are very slick looking, but they are also relatively common place and readily available.  I've seen them before both on merc suits and goth and other costuming.  Considering that you'd have to mod them a bit to make them look a bit different, and I think they're kinda pricey (don't actually know the price) you'd probably be better off getting a more plain base 'engineer' type boot to use and/or mod with an armor plate or leather pad, etc.
