Category: English Chaps/Boots/Helmets
Purchase: I received these from a trainer who bought these (I don't know the price, Dover price is 179.90) and they didn't fit her, so she gave them to me for free, brand new.
Likes: The zipper goes down to the sole of the boot, lovely to get your feet in and out of the boots. Very nice quality leather, I just love to ride in them, they are very comfortable. No slip bottoms keep my feet in the irons even during the roughest of rides, very nice. Cushioned insoles have allow me to wear the boots all day during a show and I can walk around the grounds with no problem, no sore feet.
Dislikes: The stitching along the zippers came undone around the ankle after only a few rides, then the zipper actually broke.
Quality: Unit Grippa Sole to prevent slipping, carbon steel shank support, shock absorbing cushioned insole. High traction outsoles, reinforced pull tabs, spur rests. Hidden heavy-duty zipper and gusseted calf provide contoured fit and shaping, leather uppers. Punched toe. Very comfortable.
Summary: I love these boots, and I would definitely buy another pair when the time comes. I would suggest anyone who has or will buy a pair to get the stitching reinforced by your local shop, it's definitely worth it. I have a pair Sz 7 regular calf, cut #1656. They fit to my feet and legs with no problems, a couple of rides and a good cleaning and they were my own. I highly recommend them!
