English Boot Review help

Hey all,

I'm looking for a new pair of English Tall Dress boots, but can't seem to find a decent pair around here. So I'm stuck looking online. What do you wear and would you recommend it? I used to wear Treadstones and they were ok. I'm considering another brand though. Thanks!

I just bought a pair of Tuff Rider boots for $79 to my door:

So far I like them, they run a little tall, but I'm assuming they'll settle down a bit the more I break them in. I have wide calves and WIDE is pretty close to being too tight; that being said... I like that they aren't leather, yet look just like it.

I haven't ridden in them, but I think they will be sufficient for a tight budget.

ETP: Just realized you're looking for dress boots, these are field, not sure if they offer them or not :(

Love my Mt Horse. I have their leather tall boots for dressage shows and winter tall boots. Both pairs are very comfortable.

You should definitely check out Horze.com, they're known for having really good, and expensive looking, high quality tack for inexpensive products and your grandparents in Arizona would probably get free shipping. Plus they're always having sales and they have a luxary brand too. Recently I purchased theseB Vertigo Sporty Womans boots. I needed a pair of boots to ride the training horses in the morning and then to teach in later in the day. These have really fit the purpose. They are quite comfortable both in the saddle and out. I am a dressage rider, so they are not as stiff as I was accustomed to, however my stiffer boots boots are no fun to wear when I teach. They have handled the Florida heat and moisture admirably. I do like the breathable tops, they have been very cool and l also like the lining. Most less expensive boots don't last very long in my arena, but these have done a great job for me and the zips have been durable. Would prefer a more traditional look without the red details, but they are not too conspicuous. Overall a great everyday boot.

I have these ones. Absolutely no break in time and they have several calf sizes and give you instructions how to measure yours.
