    Tracey,

    There are many articles on this site which should be useful for determining the best lighting setup for your specific needs. Here are two that I recomend you read:

    What is a good basic lighting kit

    You will need to decide what setting is most appropriate for your boots. If you are shooting for catalogs, you may be interested in a light tent product or a home made light box which provides even lighting for highlighting product details. Here are some links to articles and products which might give you some good ideas:
