LOL yeh Carolina isn't that motivated! I thought about bell boots, but don't want the ones I have to pull on. Any reviews on the modern kind?
I have the ones made of rubber like the pull on's, but they have velcro. They do fine, and only about $15 for me, so cheaper for you. There are also neoprene ones with a 'heel bulb' to stop them rotating, etc. As long as they do the job, which ones wouldn't matter.

I dont know if you noticed or not. But I dont believe those are professional choice smb's. They are lookalikes.
Professional Choice Elites provide the most support.
Off brands and lookalikes aren't made with the very durable and easy cleanable limestone based neoprene.
In my opinion, if you are going to spend the money to get some boots look on and spend a bit more to get quality boots that are proven. =]

LOVE LOVE LOVE SMB and SMBII's. They are an awesome boot. Use them every ride - even to turn out a horse that is a little fresh. They are durable and clean easily.
If you are looking for over reach protection, maybe look into the SMB combo boot?
