thx for all the pics...
the authentic ones you posted are magnificent, calexico....
did you ride as a child?
i cannot figure out how the real equestrian boots zip up...
there are some i've seen with shoe laces...
but i am assuming there is a side or back zipper that goes the full length of the boot?

ps glad you liked those... i think i will get myself a pair...

Calexico - Those you posted is what I would call riding boots, love them dearly!

Bonchic - the ones from JCrew (no 5) are gorgeous! love the strap.

I love the riding boot look. I don't think I could ever pull it off though.
I have two pairs of actual riding boots one rubber and one leather.

I love this kind of boot,I'm thinking of buying some as im going to ny in feb and i have absolutely no suitable footwear for the weather it will be.
I thought they'd be comfortable,practical and cute.

I tried on these boots and liked them..I'm not sure if the sole is too chuncky to be considered a riding boot?? They are Rocket Dogs.$128.00 on zappos.com but around $60 at DSW where I tried them on.

Do you think riding boots are worn better with skinney jeans or with the jeans rolled up above the boot?

My boots go on with a pair of hooks and silky socks over my pants and come off with a boot pull. They aren't easy to get in and out of! I have both field boots (with laces) and dress boots (no laces) and they're both custom made to fit perfectly. The field boots just provide a little more ankle support with the lacing.

yeah I think real riding boots are brilliant but like softie mentioned, they are quite expensive to get the real thing.

i see...
so it is completely a matter of pulling them on and off...
no zipper...
i will have to wear very silky soft socks to achieve this...
thank you winter blossom!

Do you think riding boots are worn better with skinney jeans or with the jeans rolled up above the boot?
(zappos.com)
jeans tucked inside the boot, i.m.o.
i had to hem a couple of my jeans to further help with getting them into my boots...
jeans rolled up above the boot = too thick

not really, no....
i went to a stuffy private girls school that insisted we take a few lessons.... wearing all that impeccable riding gear...
i'm sure we all looked adorable....
but we absolutely hated it....



they made us do some silly things really....
walking up and down stairs with porcelain teacups on our head....
aged 12....


i guess it teaches you something about discipline....


calexico....
please do post a pic when you have them!!!....

Yeah usally the zipper in real riding boots are on the back of the boot.

I have a pair of feild boots that dont have a zipper and they are a bitch to get on and off. So I think getting ones with the zipper would be a good choice.

Also, since real riding boots are meant to fit very snugly against the leg, a good friend is also useful in pulling them off.

Some dressage boots have them on the front (slightly to the inside), too, but I feel like that ruins the line of the boot, not to mention your saddle.

The problem with zippers in real riding boots is that they won't get the wrinkles in the ankle as they break it. This is especially a problem if you're a bit short of leg.
