Purchase: I bought these boots new from State Line Tack a few months ago. I needed a pair for a week long vacation at a dressage barn, and these were the quickest pair I could find. I think I paid $65 plus tax.
Likes: I like feel of the leather (I think it's leather) They look nice and seem to have held up, although I ended up passing them on to a 4-Her. The metal hooks have held up for the laces (Some on my older paddock boots always ended up breaking off) They also broke in pretty quickly. Stitching is ok, and the soles are fine.
Dislikes: The boots, although pretty nice for the price, seemed to run rather narrow. I rode in them a few times, but for walking around, they didn't work out so well. They did fit my narrower footed little cousin, so she uses them now for showing in 4-H and local stuff. (I have little feet, but they are most definitely NOT narrow!) Thankfully, she has narrower feet, and they fit her perfectly.
Quality: The boots seem to be well constructed, they held up to a ton of mud from the couple times I did wear them, and now they seem to be doing well for someone else. The leather has remained supple, and they still look pretty nice.
Summary: I am a little disappointed at how narrow the boots were, but I was in a bind and they worked for short term use. If they fit you correctly, they seem to be a decent boot. I liked them, but they just didn't fit right! I'm glad that they seem to fit someone else though.
