Are jackboots a valid choice for footwear?

I don't see why not. So long as you don't get the obviously-rainboot-styled ones, you'll be good to go. :)

Sounds fine to me. I would get someone else's opinion too if you can.

Jackboots are acceptable, as they were used for the boots for several costumes in the original trilogy.

Acceptable but.....not exactly comfortable.  :'(

I've got a very nice authentic pair that I use with my TIE Pilot costume. They look great and they feel pretty good for about 2 hours...then...not so much. Even with several different layers of padding and insoles those things will kill you after a long day of trooping.

And while they work for pretty boy pilots and Nancy Boy officers I'd imagine a mando would wear something a bit more practical out in the field. You're call though.

Yeah I'm with Tyno Krast. I have a pair for my Rebel Pilot, Tie Pilot and Gunner... they look great... after marching in them in last year's Santa Parade... ungh!
