I love my tall boots, and wear them every time I mount up English, personally I didn't have a break-in period, I bought Mountain Horse's tall boots (their cheapest option) and they fit me like they were made for me.
For just starting out go for the half chaps though, I rode in half chaps and paddock boots for 3 years before I put the money into a pair of tall boots,
Don't go for cheap boots either because you'll find that spending the extra money will go further and make you happier in the long run.
If you do decide to go for the tall boot option, stock up on plenty of boxes of band-aids the blister type!
