Okay, here is a link to the different pairs I'm looking at getting, which ones do you think are the best. He has never worn boots before either...

Yeah those boots will do nothing but be a pain and fall off....Combination boots never work out right, they just were a failed invention. And the last boots you posted look cheap and not effective at all, but what can you expect at the $17 they are asking for them?

You get what you pay for...Trust me, you'd be better off just dishing out the money and getting a higher quality boot. I have had boots that I've had for years with care. $60 every three or four years for a pair of boots so far. I think that's worth it. Mom has a pair of SMBs that have been around for 13 years and still useable....Quality is key here.

Okay, cause I didn't want to spend a lot if I will just have to get more a few months later. But if they really do last I guess I will pay the extra. Thanks

Well you will get what you pay for. Cheap = Cheap

I wouldn't buy any of the boots you posted.

Go with one of the name brands we mentioned: Professionals Choice or Classic Equine or Pro Equine.

Yes, expensive, but yes, they will last! I have several pairs of sport boots that 5+ years old (one pair is nearing 10 years old). I have hand washed them, and air dried them, and treated them very gently. They are still good as new.

Here is a link to the boots I like to use best.

And the bell boots: Ballistic material is TOUGH!

Ya, you need to dish out the money for good boots or at least get some in decent shape used.

I would recommend Iconoclasts, Pegasus or Pro Choice. The classic equines are fine as long as you put them on right. Get them in an odd position and I do not want to know the damage or irritation that ridge in them would cause. Pegasus boots are super easy to put on. Mine are almost 4 years old and are in great shape. As for bell boots I like my pro choice and classic equine. I have heard res have good bells too, but have not tried them.

The others have pointed out all of the aspects to think of when buying boots including the biggest thing to consider: you get what you pay for. I'm another vote for Professional's Choice Elites, I use the VenTech Elites. I love the Justin bellboots.

When I run I put boots on all four, lessons I put boots on just the front, and everyday riding bells. I either use classic equine legacy or Professional Choice SMB 2 boots. Haven't bought any SMB 3 boots, but the elites don't fit my guy right
