Jodhpur/Paddock boots: laces vs zip
I am planning to buy my first paddock boots. Having done some research on this and other fora, it seems like Ariat is the most recommended brand.
I have always thought that, traditionally, paddock boots are supposed NOT to have neither laces nor zip. Thus, I am quite puzzled when facing the choice.
I would be grateful for your advice / comments on your experience regarding using zip vs laced short boots. Which ones are better, more convenient, more traditional? Which would you recommend to buy?
Thank you for your comments!
