Whether you're planning a Handmaid's Tale Costume for Halloween, Cosplaying, or just love the fashion, I've scoured the internet to find the closest matches for Hulu's hit show 'The Handmaid's Tale' boots. Ever since the show premiered, I've been absolutely obsessed with the costuming and everything it represents. While the vast majority of 'The Handmaid's Tale' costumes are custom made by incredible designers (this includes the boots you see Offred, Ofglen, Janine [Ofwarren] and the other women wearing), you can find some pretty close matches online. And if you're willing to put in a little work, you can replicate them almost exactly.

The Handmaid's have two sets of boots: One 'slouch' style, and one more along the lines of work/low cut combat boots, also brown. Here are links to the closest matches. If you want to get more DIY'ish to get the slouch shoes as close as possible to the real deal, you'll want to buy a pair of brown footless slouch socks (or any rather long knee high socks and cut off the foot), to put over the boot. 

To view a boot, just click the title (I've linked the product URL). I will be adding more as I find them!

The Handmaids Tale Boot Style - Brown Cuffed

I'm so psyched to find these boots. They remind me a lot of the type worn in 'The Handmaid's Tale', as they have the cuff and no laces. I read a new fascinating interview about how when designing The Handmaid's Tale boots, they removed the laces, the idea behind it being so the girls in Gilead couldn't use them to do harm to themselves, and sewed on a cuff. Just another form of oppression and everything being taken away. While the material is different, I definitely think boot would be great for THT Costume or cosplay. I'd wear it all winter!

The Testaments: The Sequel to The Handmaid's Tale Book Summary / Description via Amazon:

More than fifteen years after the events of The Handmaid's Tale, the theocratic regime of the Republic of Gilead maintains its grip on power, but there are signs it is beginning to rot from within. At this crucial moment, the lives of three radically different women converge, with potentially explosive results.
Two have grown up as part of the first generation to come of age in the new order. The testimonies of these two young women are joined by a third voice: a woman who wields power through the ruthless accumulation and deployment of secrets.
As Atwood unfolds The Testaments, she opens up the innermost workings of Gilead as each woman is forced to come to terms with who she is, and how far she will go for what she believes.
