Crowne Pro Field Boot
English Chaps/Boots/Helmets

Manufacturer: Ariat
Model: Crowne Pro Field Boot
Category: English Chaps/Boots/Helmets

Purchase: The summer before my freshman year at college(St. Lawrence University) I needed new field boots. I am going to ride on the schools team, so my old USPC boots weren't going to cut it anymore. I went to Dover Saddlery in NH, where they have a bargain basement. They had a wall of boots. I tried on many pairs (some were almost impossible to get off) Finally I tryed on the ariats, a perfect fit. They were only $100!!! Normally they run around $500.

Likes: One of my favorite things about any Ariat boot, is the way they make your leg look, for some reason they always make your leg look much more slender. I am also in love with the quality of the boot. Granted these are my first field boots made out of real leather. They also broke in fairly quickly. The second time I wore them was all day at a show, and I had minimal pain.

Dislikes: I do not know if this is because I have an odd length leg, short in the thigh and long in the calf (but still manage to have short legs). I had to buy the tall style of the boot. The regulars fit perfectly before broken in, and the talls were almost painfully too tall. I went with the talls and had to spend a while working Bick 4 into the ankle part and the tops of the boot, but it was worth it, they fit perfectly now.

Quality: To quote Dover Saddlery "Crafted with French calf uppers which mold to your leg for a more personal fit and minimal break-in. A stretch leather gusset at top of calf assures a snug fit. Forward-angled shaft accommodates rider's leg position. Improved Cobalt technology, with its leather-covered orthotic arch, and unique cushioning system reduces foot fatigue. ATS composite fiber forked shank provides added support and stability. Duratread outsole gives maximum flexibility, excellent traction and has a self-cleaning tread design. High Spanish-cut topline, traditional punched toe cap and swagger tabs all add to the classic looks. Three-quarter lining allows closer feel on the inside of the leg. Extra eyelets allow easier entry. Spur rests" All of it is true and excellent

Summary: While I would not have bought these boots if they were not at Dovers Bargain Basement(I would drowl over them though) I am in love these boots. They are my babies, and one of my prized possessions. They are a wonderful boot, and I will pay full price for my next pair of boots(probaly in a decade or so) They are totally worth the prize.
