I have the DiNiro Leucas, I really like them. The way the zipper is set is really cool, and its not noticeable from a distance so you still look conservative in the hunter and eq rings. They were easy to break in and very comfortable. I have custom boots that I show in but I use the Leucas around the barn. Just a heads up though, Italian boots tend to run small. I usually wear a Medium/Regular calf and I had to send them back and order the Wide/Tall calf. The Treadsteps are becoming very popular but I don't have much experience with them. The Monacos are obviously very nice, no break in time, very supple leather and look like a second skin. But they wear very easily. I have a few friends that have them and they wore holes in the calves. You should only use them to show in if you end up with the Monacos.

I ride in TredStep Da Vinci's and they are insanely nice! Almost no break in time and the leather is very supple. I've been riding in them several times a week for over a year now and they look almost brand new and have only dropped maybe 1/2 an inch but I do use boot trees. Zippers have been flawless as well! The rich kids at my barn with their Monaco's and customs all complimented on them.

Do a search on SmartPak for them, over a 100 reviews and it's almost a 5 star product which is somewhat unheard of. :)

The hardest part isn't finding what we need to be, it's being content with who we are.

I have Donatellos and they are incredible boots, but it seems just about everything from Tredstep is of tremendous quality so I recommend the brand though I've no experience with Da Vincis.
