English boots? *for human, not horse*

Hey, you guys. I'm going to Dover Saddlery this weekend.
My showboot's zipper broke, & they are just worn out so I am getting new ones (I've had those for about 2yrs). ;) I'm also going to get some new gloves, half-chaps, breeches, etc.

So, for the show boots, what brands do you recommend? Mine were Devon Aire, but I'd like to try something a bit better, as those didn't wear so well...
I would like them to be tall of course, but not TOO expensive? Less than $250-300 please if you have any suggestions.

Another question:
I am also going to purchase some regular boots, like for lessons. Any good brands/suggestions on what I should get? My budget for them is less than $100.

Thanks! I really appreciate it. Tonight I'm going to go onto the site & look around, but I just wanted some advice in the meantime. :)

I love my ariat paddock boots. I don't have any help for a tall boot though. I had to get special ones for my especially fat calf.

I have the ariat heritage II field boots and just love them. They really feel like a custom fit. I've almost had them for a year and they still look brand new!

But, I would suggest that you try on a few different pairs and see which ones fit you the best/which are most comfortable for you.

I orginally wanted mountain horse boots, but they didn't fit me well at all, so I tried on the ariats and they were perfect.

I have Ariat Challenge zip tall boots and Equistar paddock boots. I love them both.

Is equistar the synthetic ones? How do they fit and feel? Do they get your feet hot? Just wondering as it sounds like they'd last longer.

MOUNTAIN HORSE all the way :)

I LOVE my Mountain Horse Boots, they are well made, comfortable, hearty, durable, long lasting and you forget you are even wearing them.

I have Mountain Horse Sportive High Rider II's and Mountain Horse High Rider II's.

LOVE THEM! Both of them! I even have 2 pairs of Rim Frosts - lol.

I really, really, really, really want to get the Mountain Horse High Calibur Field Boots - oh my goodness, I drool over those.

I highly recommend Mountain Horse.

CJ82Sky, my Equistar paddock boots lasted me two years of continuous wear and tear, mud, being stepped on, etc. Yes, they are the synthetic ones and I was very impressed with them. I got a new pair for Christmas and I swear by them. They don't feel any hotter or worse than leather ones and they are a great price. I would recommend them to anyone.
