Model: Elite Paddock Boots
Category: English Casual Apparel
Purchase: I bought these paddock boots from the Dover Saddlery catalog to replace a pair of paddock boots that had worn out. I paid about $89 for them, plus tax and shipping. They are the "top of the line" in the Middleburg line of paddock boots.
Likes: They are well made, of good quality, durable leather. They clean up nicely, accept boot polish beautifully, and they have been very sturdy, holding up to fairly hard use (4-5 times a week)
Dislikes: They have turned out to be fairly painful for me to wear. Perhaps they run a bit narrow - I do have slightly wider feet - I thought perhaps they needed to simply break-in - which they did, very well, but the more I wore them, the more my feet hurt.
Quality: Quite good. The leather, stitching, construction is of high quality. No complaints there.
Summary: They just hurt for some reason. It could be my feet - it could be they were made a bit narrow, with not enough room between the sole and the upper for the ball/toes of the foot - If I lived closer to a tack shop I would have tried them on, but the closest tack shop is over two hours away so I took a gamble and tried these. They just didn't work out for me.
