    Stupidly skinny boot help

    Is there anyone else who has crazy skinny legs?

    My legs are like knots in a long piece of string (the knot is the knee). It doesn't matter what I eat, or how I age, my legs are apparently mine for life.

    I am interested in all boot suggestions. I wear cowboy boots with jeans almost daily, and just for around the barn stuff. But I ride English, paddock boots are fine, it's tall boots I have the issue with.

    I am preparing to go custom, just putting this out there to try suggestions anyone might have before I spend more on my boots than I did on my horse.

    Here's a photo of what my leg looks like in normal sized boots. (Yup I am like a rake). Ignore the scars, I have eczema that's mainly on my legs, I am not a battered wife.

    Well nevermind I went to Dover Saddlery today and tried on all the boots, and ended up with some Mountain Horse ones.
    I am updating this thread so anyone else with uber skinny legs might be informed.

    Mountain Horse were the slimmest fit by a long way out of all of Dover's stock.

    Ugh I hear ya Iseul, it's a PITA to not be the most perfect size.

    Wares, it's about impossible to get a good photo with a kid taking the pic, so I accepted that and just went with stupid instead. (I got a new show shirt as well today, so you get that in the pic too).



    I don't know why I still stuck my rear end out for this, but I did, so that's what you have got.

    For anyone else still looking for slim fit boots...I have found Italian boots seem to run slimmer than most others. I recently got a pair of De Niro Leucas from SmartPak and had to order up 2 sizes in the calf than what I normally wear. Parlantis were the same when I tried them on.
