Model: Pull On Field Boots
Category: English Chaps/Boots/Helmets
Purchase: I bought these boots at an Equine Trade show for a discounted price. I was looking for tall boots but I was on a budget. I ride mostly western so I couldn't justify spending over $150 on a pair of boots. I found these boots for $50!
Likes: I love the extended sizes! I very petite and short so the fact that I found a 5, short, slim calf was exciting. I like the overall styling - they sure don't look inexpensive! I also like the pull on feature although TuffRider does make models similar to this with zippers but I prefer without.
Dislikes: I wish the boot had swagger tabs, but those are only a cosmetic(there are pull tabs!). I also wish the Spanish top was higher, to make my short legs look longer. Once again this is a personal and only cosmetic aspect.
Quality: The leather is Brazilian and surprisingly soft. The lining runs halfway down the boot allowing the lower half to drop nicely. There is a punched toe cap that adds protection and style to the boot. The toe of the boot is unique. It is a squared toe rather than rounded, and still fits in the stirrup fine. The sole of the boot is also very sturdy and I was even able to fit my orthodic inserts inside.
Summary: I was pleasantly surprised with the overall quality and styling of this boot. If taken care of, I know these boots will last me a long time. The leather is soft, the lining has stayed true and they broke in relatively quickly. I bought them at a discount price but these boots usually do not run over $150. They are a great buy and even come in children's sizes.
Usefulness Rating: 2.25 out of 5.
