Dublin Aristocrat Boots

Initially I really liked these boots, but alas I have gone through 2 pair of them in a year. The leather is a bit stiff but it breaks in pretty easily. With a little shoe stretch spray and wearing, they break in to fit just like they were custom made for you. The back zip goes all the way down so you can get them on and off in the blink of an eye.

The only bad thing, and it's a big one, is that the zipper is very cheap. It's just a flimsy plastic one (I've seen more durable on sweatshirts). If you need to stretch the calves any amount at all you have to be careful because the zipper teeth will "pop" unzipped. They have very little staying power. Also you have to be careful while zipping because the zipper pull has a habit of coming right off the top and then, you are a bit screwed because you won't get it back on.

If you want a cheap pair for every day riding, these might work for you as long as you remember to baby that zipper. As for a cheap pair of starter boots for showing, I would pass as that zipper is unreliable and you run the risk of completely ruining your show if you have a zipper malfunction early on as it will end your day with them.

These would be really awesome boots for the price if it wasn't for that pesky cheap zipper!
