the soles are worn and there's a few scuffs on them but other then that they look pretty new! i used my saddle cleaner and saddle oil on them and they weren't even dirty. i think im going to buy those things that you put in tall boots so they stand up straight because every time i take these off the neck of the shoe bends.

Good deal!

Don't use oil on them though, as that will weaken the leather and make them wear faster. Just clean with a damp cloth and use black boot polish. Keep them clean and polished and they will last for a long time!

Good for you..we deserve a break once in awhile, the costs of most horsey things being so high. Glad you got a bargain.

Our farm is home to 4 adopted draft horses
Please consider adopting and give a horse back it's life.
