    I'm going to be riding once a week, dressage mainly with some jump/cross training, and also occasional showing. But problem solved, I ended up spending a little more and buying some new Devon-Aire leather zip back field boots on eBay. Thanks for the feedback, ended up going leather because I want to have these for a while!

    Did you make sure it wasn't their "leather like" boots and actual leather?

    Ok, good! I always go, "Ooooh nice deal on leather boots!" then I open up the description and in there they sneak in the "leather like" part. :roll:

    You should post on here after you receive them how well you like them. I'm trying to decide which brand would be best for me to purchase. I want to go for real leather as well (my Western boots are leather and have lasted me 3 years!) but no idea which brand to go with..

    Okay, I will absolutely do that! Just for reference, they're Devon-Aire Nouvelle zip-back field boots. I went with field boots because even though I'll be doing dressage, I can use them in low level shows and if I decide to also do the hunt/jump thing, I'll need them. They should arrive somewhere between this Thursday and next Monday...will keep you posted!

    Thank you!

    That was very clever on your part. It's always best to think ahead on purchases such as boots.

    Ok, here's my update:

    They seem like nice boots, but I'll never know, because they don't fit.

    I ordered my size, regular calf, which is what I tried on in at least 2 other brands at the local tack shop. I even had my foot measured and 7.5 medium height, medium calf is for sure my size. No other size will work on me. My boots arrived today and I can't even zip up the back. It's like they were mislabeled by the company and should have been size 7.5 slim or size 7 wide. And it sucks because the eBay seller doesn't accept returns.
