English Chaps/Boots/Helmets



Manufacturer: Cavalier
Model: Dress Boots
Category: English Chaps/Boots/Helmets

Purchase: I aquired these boots from State Line Tack for $120. I bought these boots because of there price, they actually seemed reasonable next to some of the other boots.

Likes: The only thing that I like about these boots is the price. They are a very inexpensive boot made of decent quality leather. They are also comfortable to walk around in after you break them in.

Dislikes: I dont like the fact that I've only had these boots for about a year and I've already had to replace them with another pair. The sole on the boot, along with the heel, is very thin which wears out very fast, especially where your foot hits the stirrup iron. The back of the boot folds after so many times of getting the boot on and off , so you have no support what so ever anymore. The boots are very tall in the back, and it takes along time for the boots to be broken in and conform to your calf and leg. Also, the boot will start to fade a different color and you will be stuck with navy colored boots unless you shine them every night. The cloth lining on the inside makes it hard to get the boots on and off when your calf is sweaty or wet. The sole will start to wear and get a hole, so dirt and water will get in your shoe which will eat away the inside lining and make them highly uncomfortable. The backs of the boots will rip at the stiching if you heel rubs it to many times. Finally, the heel is not well bonded to the boot and will come off if you pull on it the wrong way with a boot jack.

Quality: The construction of the boot is very poorly designed. The only positive is the spanish tops, which allow for a dressier look. The boot is not strongly made and will fall apart very easily with wear. I was very dissapointed with the quality of the boot, I didn't expect $400 show boot quality, but I did expect to have have them for more than a year.

Summary: These boots are a very low end quality boot. You shouldn't buy these boots if you expect to ride in them everyday, or walk around in them etc. They fell apart on me very easily within the year I had them, and boots shouldn't do that. I was dissapointed in Cavalier for not making a better constructed boot.
