F.lli Fabbri Field Boots

I have a pair of wonderful zip back field boots that I got in a trade a couple years ago. The brand on the inside is 'F.lli Fabbri', which I have never heard of. I looked them up on the internet but the only thing I found was a custom boot site in Italy, and none of the boots looked remotely like mine.

I got them from a woman whose family bought out a tack store that was going out of business. They were brand new, never worn, and exactly my size. I traded an already broken in pair of waterproof synthetic field boots for them. I rode in them for a year while I had no paddock boots and they broke in nicely. They've worn really well and I don't take particularly careful care of my boots. One of the snaps at the top of the zipper is broken, but it's nothing I can't ride with.

What I'm curious about is if anyone else has a pair of these boots, and if so, how do you like them? A price would also be interesting, as I may end up selling them if I decide to stop showing for good.

Hi Nevreme

I have a pair of F.lli Fabbri field boots and they are excellent as well.
Here in Europe they are quite famous, many riders wear them, even the great Eric Lamaze.

Actually F.lli Fabbri boots are custom made boots, you were lucky to find them exactly your size!

Wow, really? That's awesome :) It never even occurred to me that they might be custom. I may end up keeping them after all.
