Winter riding stirrups

I went on a trail ride today and sadly my skidoo boots did not fit in my stirrups very well. I have never been much of a winter rider but will be doing more than usual this winter so I need to get some new stirrups. I ride western, and it gets very cold here in Ontario Canada so I have been checking out some different stirrups. What do you guys ride with? Do any of you have these ones? Do they look like they would be ok?

those look like endurance stirrups, Alot of people ride in them year round. I have a set a bit nicer on my endurance saddle, I don't use them on my Aussi only because I dotn like the look on the smaller saddle, And we all know looking cool is the most important part. Measure your boot, most stirrups tell you how wide they are. But those will probably be fine.

well they don't look pretty but I don't care about that just as long as they are big enough and comfortable. There is no size listed but where they do mention winter boots I am hoping they will be big enough for me to slide my ski doo boots in. What are endurance stirrups and how are they different than regular stirrups?

They have a couple different sizes depending on your feet and your saddle leathers or fenders. What you have pictured is an endurance stirrup. You can get them leather covered also or all aluminum. Basically they are bigger with thick soft padding.

I have a spare set of extra wide Ralide stirrups meant for winter boots and I'm in Ontario.
