They're just cowboy boots with lots of metal-wear, aren't they? I'd try shops that specialise in Gothic clothes/heavy metal/glam metal types of clothing. If you're anywhere near Manchester, Affleck's Palace is a good place to try!

Oh yeah-they'll definitely have that you want. I remember being dragged around the many shops selling boots in Camden for hours by an Gothic ex-girlfriend! When she finally bought some purple thigh length PVC boots, my aching feet and extreme boredom suddenly seemed worth it :wink:

You mean the long leather trench coats? I'm sure you'll find all you want in Camden. Look at the shops along the road to the market when you get out of the underground station rather than the market itself-loads of stuff there!

Camden is definitely the place. I got a brilliant biker jacket for £25 on a little stall there.
