Leather skid boots. Velcro or buckles?

Ask 2 trainers-get 2 opinions. So-I am asking the rest of you all. I prefer the leather with the velcro closures, but one of the trainers says that the velcro gets all messed up and stops working, that the buckles are better. Opinions?

I like the leather with buckles too...the cups wear out before the buckles do.

Also with the leather ones with the buckles the dirt falls out of them, they kinda self-clean. The neoprene ones its hard to get a good fit and the dirt falls down into them and if you rough up the fetlocks bad they get reluctant to stop.

To be honest, I have never tried the leather ones with the velcro straps.

I have both and like them both. However for ease of use the velcro I like better. However they are hader to keep clean and do not last as long. Nice thing is I have a guy who can replace the velcro when it goes bad so not a big deal.

THanks-good to know. I sew and could probably do it myself with my HD machine. I am the type who finds the ease of the velcro really attractive for sure.
