Mountain Horse Victoria Dress Boots

does anyone have any experience with these boots - Mountain Horse Victoria? Do they run true to size (according to the size chart)? How much did they drop after break-in? What are your thoughts on craftsmanship and durability/longevity?

I'm looking for a pair of tall boots because i'm tired of going through half chaps every 6 months or so and I honestly like the look of tall boots more anyway. I am interested in these boots because I have the Mountain Horse Active Winter Rider boots and love them.

What I am concerned about is what size to get. I'm 5'3" and have a larger calf size (according to most boot size charts anyway). My lower leg measured barefoot from the floor to the back of my knee (bent at a 90 degree angle) is 15.5"-16" (hey it's hard to get right when you're measuring on your own! ) and 14.5" wide around the calf with breeches on. I can't decide if I would be best served getting the short height boots or not seeing as i'm so close to the upper limit of calf height on the short/regular boots. I'm thinking so because I can't imagine they will drop that much with the zippers but i'm hoping someone has these boots and can give me real world experience.

crim, I don't have these particular boots, but I have a (different) pair of dressage tall boots by Mt Horse. Really like them! I only use them at the shows. They seem to be a good fit for the wider foot (my problem: mine are wide, so hard to find something comfy).

I also have winter tall boots by Mt Horse and like them too.

see and i'm the opposite side of the spectrum - I have really narrow small feet (i wear a 6.5-7 in most brands of boots) and my heels always come up/out of them but then I have a "wide" calf. Oye.

I think i'll end up ordering these in the short height and hoping for the best. Thanks!!
