Tall Boots?

I want a nice good pair of tall boots. I have Dublin something or the other and I hate them! What do you recommend? Thank you so much!

I love Ariats boots and shoes. They just seem to fit my foot very well. They are expensive but worth it! Gotta have happy feet!

Mt Horse!

But really depends on the shape of your leg. :)

Anything Ariat!! I am brand loyal. They are true to size and they are so comfy, worth the money.

I love Ariat boots! (the paddock ones anyways) I can't find any tall boots that fit my leg, even by Ariat.

I have kind of muscular calves, but they're long and thin. I don't really know how tall boots are supposed to fit around my leg. I've always just had paddock boots or half-chaps.

Mt Horse is designed more towards fuller leg/calves (from my experience). Do you have any consignment stores in your area? Those often offer tall boots too.

Another Ariat fan here. I have both paddock and field boots, they just fit my feet and legs perfectly, and I am a tall slim, so it's hard to find a good fit!

I was having issues with my calves, and Dublins didn't work for me either. I tried Devon Aire Camden with the elastic built in the calf. So I can get somewhat of a custom fit. I am loving them. A little pricey but Dover has them on sale now.

Just jump it!!
