I gotta say - I'm shocked at the lack of variety when it comes to calf sizes, specifically for girls who have a normal size/larger calf. I'm in pretty good shape. I'm definitely not a typical thin lean "equestrienne" type, but I'm in good shape. I have a 16 1/2" calf, and I've found TWO boots that are not custom that go to that calf size - the Fuller Fillies dress boot (which I can't get in Canada), and the Ovation Gold Circuit Pro dressage boot. These are both cheap boots (in my opinion), and there is NO in between these two boots. The ONLY exception to this was the guy I met at the Royal Winter Fair this year who does full custom for $580 (I should've gotten measured at the time but I didn't - stupid).
So I suppose I'm just surprised. Who here has a calf size over a 15 1/2"? Am I the only one?
And just to add, I'm ALL FOR custom boots, or semi-custom, but with losing weight and getting into even better shape I refuse to spend $800-$1000 on boots when they won't fit six months from now.
I broke down and ordered the Ovation Gold Circuit Pro boot in the XX-Wide they are now carrying. From what I understand they aren't the greatest boot whatsoever, but I was left without any other options in this case. I need a boot that will look decent to get me through this summer, and like I said, I wasn't going to drop $1k just to not be able to use them a few months later.
