are these stirrups okay?
 
I just got these showman stirrups they were so cute and my saddle has hearts on it so they matched perfectly! I couldn't pass them up. I couldn't find any reviews on them just wanted to know if this is a good brand or if my impulsive buying of cute things got the best of me lol

Showman are imported but still a good stirrup as far as I have seen, it is their saddles that are not all that great.

You're supposed to have second thought before you buy, not after. Lol

Are they aluminum? I have the ones with the card suite. They are nive stirrups but hugely wide across, for a big foot. I wear womens sz 5.5-6 boots and I think the stirrups are too wide for me. They are very flat across the bottom, as well.

I polished mine with Mother's Mag and Aluminum Polish. It takes the rough edges off the engraving and makes the stirrups look like sterling silver, almost.
