Purchase: I live near Saskatoon Saskatchewan,Canada and ordered my Boa boots through a company from the U.S. since they were not available in Canada at the time, and paid $199.00 plus shipping. I have a flat footed gelding who suffers from sole bruising on the hind feet(so need protection on all four) and a thin hoof wall so decided boots would be better than metal shoes. I researched different companies for many months before giving Boa boots a try.
Likes: I like the fact that they are easy to put on and the directions are easy to follow. The boots provide good protection with a thick tread.
Dislikes: These boots let in a lot of dirt and debris that gets packed in, the gators are a must. The manufacturer would not help when a boot broke and was lost on a trail, because I didn't find the boot for proof. In fact the manufacturer ignored e-mails and replied "sorry we can't help you" when I called.
Quality: The leather is soft and fairly easy to clean but needs to be protected. The tread is thick and provides good protection. Obviously the lacing system doesn't hold since I lost a boot after checking tightness regularly and making sure fit was perfect.
Summary: When I first received my Boas I had to exchange for a different size to get a perfect fit. Once the fit was perfect, I was happy to see how easy they were to put on and adjust. I went for a few short rides to test the tightness and to get used to them and they were great. About 1 month after puchasing them we went on our first trail ride. I stopped frequently to check the boots and wasn't too worried since we were not on rough terrain(pasture),but was shocked when a friend looked at me and said "you lost a boot". We checked the last mile of ground, since that was the distance of the last stop where I checked them with no luck. I was stuck with three boots so decided to go to Old Macs and give them a try.
