Model: Zip-Front Paddock Shoe
Category: English Chaps/Boots/Helmets
Purchase: I bought these paddock shoes at State Line Tack for $45. I wanted an easy-care pair of paddock shoes that I could wear for my long hours in the saddle and at the barn and not worry about getting them wet or dirty or anything.
Likes: I like the easy-care synthetic leather of these paddock shoes. All you have to do to clean them is wipe them down with a damp cloth or sponge, and they look good as new again. The punched toe cap and spur rest add to the good looks of the paddock shoes, and the elastic panel on the side helps me flex my ankles to the correct angle when I'm riding. I also LOVE the zip-up style - it's so much easier than lace-up, it looks good, and I'm not always having to buy new laces, which I have found to break very easily. I've so far had two pairs of these paddock shoes and the zippers have never jammed or broken.
Dislikes: I wear my paddock shoes until they're pretty much dead, and after a while the toe starts to separate from the sole of the shoe, but of course that can only be expected.
Quality: Overall the quality of these paddock shoes is very high and I like being able to wear them anywhere and not worry that I'm going to wreck my $100 paddock shoes. The stitching is strong and holds up well, the zippers never jam or break, and the paddock shoes are extremely long-wearing. Great value for the money!
Summary: These paddock shoes are a great buy. For only $45, which is WAY less than a lot of paddock shoes on the market, you get a great pair of easy-care, high-quality, long-wearing paddock shoes that are comfortable, durable, and last forever. I recommend these paddock shoes to anyone who rides a lot and is on a budget - or just doesn't want to spend a ton on paddock shoes!
