Those are fashion boots, as are Gucci. They are NOT riding boots. I cannot imagine actually trying to ride in those RLs you posted. The heel is too high, and you would scratch your saddle up horribly with that big cuff seam around the top and the strapping around the ankles.
If you are desperate to ride in brown boots, please, for the love of god, buy actual riding boots, not "equestrian inspired" fashion boots.
I know they are fashion boots. I'm going to buy equestrian boots but I have ridden in these, the heel isn't that high on mine but I agree equestrian boots are the way to go. That said, the leather is very supple and I have never had any scuffing. ... But yes equestrian boots are the way to go. Yikes lol Posted via Mobile Device
While the leather is of only moderate quality, they are not too bad, especially considering the low price. They have a strange idea of the shape of the leg. The stock boots I ordered were the "regular" calf, but had REALLY pronounced calf shape. If you have wide shapely calves, these are great boots for you.
I decided to spend the extra hundred dollars to get the calf customized, as they were to short for my leg, too.
The "customized" boots were a disappointment, and I think VERY little different than the stock boots. Maybe a little higher, but still had the pronounced calf.
That said, they broke in without a hitch and seem to be wearing well. I am worried that, eventually, the leather, which may be coated, will begin to peel at the stress points. We'll see.....
