Open Front Boots

I posted this in tack too, but thought I'd post here as well :)

I was looking at getting open front boots for my boy. What brands do other people use? I have been looking at these
Professional's Choice VenTECH Open Front Jumping Boots - Front Boots from SmartPak Equine
Opinions?
I don't want to spend a ton, but I would like something well made and functional.
Thanks! :)

I love love love Equifit Boots, they are a tad pricey for schooling boots, but totally worth it. I feel like they give some of the best protection of any boot out there. And you really could show in them if you clean them up. EquiFit T-Boot Original Open Front Boots - Velcro - Front Boots from SmartPak Equine

I have thinline open front boots. Plain, but they are super easy to clean and I like them.

Thanks for your input everyone! I think I am going to spring and just get Eskadrons, I have been told they last a long time and clean up well for the show ring. Dover also has a good deal right now where you can get a set of front boots and ankle boots for a discounted price.
Thanks everyone!!!!! :)

Eskadrons are wonderful and last forever. Make sure that you get the kind with the cutout back (flexisoft?). I know of some horses who had tendon irritation because they didn't get the flexisoft kind.
