Nike Riding Boots

Anyone seen these? I wouldn't be caught dead wearing these. Although the screw in spur idea is nice if they're able to provide a wide selection of spur heads.

Ha, I've never seen those. Interesting look. I wonder about the comfort level when your foot is actually in the stirrup.

The first thing that popped into my mind when I read you post was "I bet the inventors of these boots don't know what a stirrup is" .. I could be completely wrong, but when I think of tall boots, Nike just doesn't pop into my head... ever.

Agreed. Not only that but that spur looks dangerous. It should be removable.

Hmm I actually think it is removable. I have a pair of nike cleets and like the actual cleats (like the pointy things on the bottom) can be screwed off if you want to wear them as regular gym shoes. I don't know that's just what I thought it meant when it said:
"-track and field-inspired screw mount spur (3 possible positions)"
Correct me if I'm wrong though.

Anyway, does anyone know when they are going to be selling them or have a guess at what the price would be. I want them lol!

I would really be interested in finding out how much they are as well - I wonder if they're comfortable... could be nice barn boots!

Unless Nike has improved their quality by leaps and bounds, I think I'd pass. Every pair of shoes I've bought from them has fallen apart inside 2 years. If I'm going to spend hundreds of dollars on a pair of boots, they had better last:) Now if they wanted to GIVE me a pair...I wouldn't turn up my nose:P
