I need new riding boots.

So, I currently wear a size 8.5 Dublin paddock boot. They're a bit too short but their also very narrow and pinch my toes. I can't seem to find a company that makes wide riding boots.

Anyone have any suggestions that wont break the bank?

If you're looking at paddock (short) boots, try Blundstones. They are made for a wide foot.

Yeah, I'll eventually look into tall boots (I really want a pair) but I don't know my size so I don't want to buy them online. =/

I'll check out that brand though! =D

probably not with steel toes. The Blundstone company is a bit out of my price range. I really don't want to spend over $100 on a pair of shoes. =/

I'm not sure if they have wide or not, but by far I find Ariats to be the most comfortable shoe there is :) I have 3 different pairs of Ariat paddock boots hehe :)

I know what you mean, about not wanting to spend "that kind of money". I can't tell you how many pairs of boots I bought, and nothing was that great. Then I did it, I invested, and my boots are heaven. Just heaven. You can spend a little bit and be a little happy, or you can invest, and never regret it. Good boot can be resoled, resewn, and last forever. Think about how important boots are...very.

I agree, Ariat's are by far the most comfortable fitting for me. I just bought a pair of Ariat Heritage Ropers in a C width. I have a few other pairs as well in Med widths, although my boots aren't for English riding.

---- Beautiful Devon Aire L'Cord field boots. Worn less than a dozen times - just enough to break them in! Size 8 1/2. Comes with socks, boot pulls, and a boot jack. Retails for $150; asking $75/bo. All offers considered!
