I know several riders who use slanted stirrups and would not trade them for anything in the world. If you are having knee problems, I would turn the leathers as well as using the slanted stirrups.

What about English stirrups that help with knee pain?
I like the look of the aluminum sturrips, plus I would feel a little weird ridding western with english sturrips hahaha!

My leathers are turned out pretty nice for the most part, now im not sure on what sturrips to get!

You could always try one, wrap the bottom in plastic wrap so it doesn't get dirty and return them if you don't feel any improvement.

Sometimes changing the stirrup length can help. The holes in the western saddle are just a basic setting. There's no law says you can't punch holes halfway between. That little difference might make a big difference. A side note: the Blevins quick adjust buckle is what contributes to having a very stiff stirrup leather. For many years, because a cowboy didn't loan his saddle, the leathers were laced which allowed the leathers to be more flexible. I cut them off one saddle and changed to lacing and haven't looked back. The Blevins were great for riding stables, dude ranches, etc.

That is also something to think about, I had to do that with my saddle. (punching the wholes) I have never owned a saddle where I have had it laced. That's kind of cool, thanks for the side note.

I looked at that crooked stirrup link,,, what a joke, might be the best stirrups in the world but the picture is laughable.
"Normal" stirrups never set like that unless they are a mile too long. If you need to resort to BS pictures like that to sell a product, I figure your product is junk.

Unless your leg hangs straight down, as in completely relaxed, that is the only time the bottom of your stirrup would be parallel to the ground. When one is riding the lower leg is angled away from the horse to not make constant contact. Thus the bottom of the stirrup should follow that angle in a straight line from knee thro the foot. In order that it remained parallel to the ground, the rider's ankle would have to roll the foot inward to maintain the contact.
