Smile Show your favorite boots!

I get looks all the time, especially when I wear these almost everyday!
To the store, shopping in high end stores... The ladies at the local nice English tack store gave them the twice over! One lady at TJ Maxx looked totally grossed out when I was shopping for nice knee high "city" boots, they wern't even muddy that day... I told her "these would cost you hundreds at a high end vintage shop!". GLARE I've had and worn them everyday for the past 8 years, and next to my family, horse, and dog, they are my FAVORITE thing!!! Lemme see yours!

Not sure if you wanna see pics of mine. Lol They're still encrusted with the pounds of mud they collected when we got snow a couple of weeks back. I only wear them to the barn (unless I go before work and don't have time to change into my cross trainers), so they don't have to be all sparkly clean. They're Ariat Terrain H2Os, though. LOVE them! Wouldn't wear anything else for every day around the barn and riding. They're great on the trail because if I end up having to hike it, they double as a hiking boot with no problem.

I wear Double H packer boots. I could never get used to the feel of cowboy boots. I just really felt like I needed my boots strapped to my feet when dealing with my horse. Is that weird? Lol. Anyway, I fell in love with these but didn't buy them until I came across a pair in a Big R in Colorado. I couldn't find them anywhere in Arizona. Mine look like they've been through the ringer right now, but they clean up nicely.

Ha ha!!!
These have a little mud on em from the trail!! I grab my mucks when its super muddy, ride up to a table on the porch and switch em out!
I like my smooth "roach killers"! Feel like they keep my feet right when riding, grippy ones stick too much in my stirups. Those are nice DRafty! I can't tie my shoes though...

O.O You said the scary word.

*Hides from packers*

My mom is OBSESSED with the packers....But she toes in because of some kinda knee problem, so she wears out the left heels and makes them lopsided....And therefor goes through packers like CRAZY!

-cough- I ride in Ariat paddock boot, fat babies, and another ariat pair that I actually have no idea what they are.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

They kiss my feet every time I put them on! I feel so comfortable. I am completely spoiled. I made the switch from army grade steel toed boots. NEVER RIDE IN THEM.. your feet WILL get stuck.

I'll post mine later today... They're a size too big for me, so I'll probably just put insoles in and ride in them next spring. My EXTREMELY nice instructor gave me these for Christmas, he only used them once, but he preferred his workboots. They're some kind of Justin's and they're kinda lighter!

Currently saving up for these, I want them soooo bad :(

All I have at the moment are a really worn and knackered pair of cheap jodhpur boots!
