    If you have a very flexible or undersized shank in a boot and ride a decent amount of time, it can contribute to your feet falling asleep, leg cramps, wondering why you thought this would be a fun vacation.

    I've even seen riders not bear weight through their legs/heels because their feet were uncomfortable, which then contributed to saddle sores on the backsides!
    Wow!!! THAT explains a lot... thank you for contributing this tidbit!

    My boots were custom made so they don’t really have a brand (Id take a photo but they are at home and I’m in the office) but they have a few standard things that make them great for riding 1) leather sole 2) Pegged arch 3) Cuban heel. If you get something with those three things they will, as long as they fit and are well made, make them the best boots for riding.

    These are the boots that I wear. They are the only ones I've ever found that were comfortable for me to walk/stand in. Also, even though the soles are rubberized, they are harder rubber designed for riding and they slip out of the stirrup almost as easily as a leather sole (and they don't slip and slide around walking on grass).

    Oh, and if you have wide feet like me, a square toe will be a lifesaver.
    OOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHwwwwwwwwweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! Those are some snazzy boots! After looking at the different colors I just have to ask which ones you have???

    I've just got the plain brown ones. I'm not much into those colorful and loud types. Though, I do want a pair of the rowdy brown/sapphire ones (dark brown with the blue tops).
