Well, they are actually ankle boots with leather gaiters around the shins. These are World War One issue, and fit in perfectly with the Edwardian styling of The Doctor.

As ever, the best place to track down a set is eBay, where you can pick up a pair of genuine period gaiters for around £60 to £100.
The design you need have ideally six (though I have seen some with either five or seven) studs with leather loops that hook around them to fasten them together.
Here are some examples I’ve found on eBay recently.
This ones a really nice set, along with a perfect belt and a nice map bag which wouldn’t look out of place on the costume.
