Question about staging boots for pictures

I have some long women's boots that I am going to be selling - some over the knee and up to the thigh. I don't think they look great lying flat for the pictures. I was hoping to stage them so they would look more attractive.

I bought these for my heels and ankle boots:

Is there a similar solution for long boots? I'm only finding free standing mannequin legs on eBay, but perhaps I'm not searching for the right terms. I have concerns that the free standing mannequin legs won't fit my smaller boots. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks,

Martin

To be honest, there are some thing you can get, but if you are looking to use them for just one pair, it probably isn't worth paying $10+ just to take pictures. There are some other things however just laying around the house you can use to make them stand up and look better. Depending on the size and opening, you can use anything from a bottle, or cans stacked, nothing too heavy or they will tip. I have had this issue before, usually you can just grab a couple things laying around and it works just fine and saves you money! There are also some tubes you can get cheap usually from a postal store or staples or something for mailing pictures and posters that could also work if they have one skinny enough. You have to learn to be creative when you are a budget seller on ebay.

Thanks for the fast response!

Actually, I probably have about 5 or 6 pairs on hand right now and expect to get a few each month. I'm not opposed to purchasing something designed for the purpose if the price is reasonable. Are there any good options out there besides the free standing mannequin legs?

Here are a couple options that I found on ebay, the first one is really inexpensive, the other one is not too bad for a set of three, these are only a couple options, the bottom one you could possibly go to a fabric store (like Joannes Fabris) and they could have some sort of thing like that or something close that would work, I searched "Boot Shaper" and came up with these:

Thanks for the help! Those were better search words. I'm going to try some of the inflatable boot shapers and see how they work since they're incredibly cheap. If I don't like those, I may try some of those styrofoam shapers.

thanks again!

For anyone curious, I bought these two: (one long, one shorter)
