I love my tall boots - with zippers :) I can just unzip, put my foot it, voila - done.
Exactly! Plus if I am in a hurry, seems like I always catch my breeches in the zipper of the half chap. I don't have that problem with the zippers on my tall boots. Or I get the paddock boots on but forget the half chaps and then 5 minutes into my ride the stirrup leathers are pinching me horribly, so I have to dismount and go put them on.
