I am still hesitant to get a boot that could rub above the hairline though.
I was worried about the clunkiness as well. My mare is 13.1hh with tiny hooves and takes the size 00 in the gloves. I have size 0 trails for her, and honestly, I don't think they look too bulky at all (wish I had pictures to show, maybe tomorrow...) There are a few images people have uploaded to the internet if you search "easyboot trail" on google...maybe have a look there for some examples.
The sole of the boot is very similar to their other boots with the hard rubber. The nylon and velcro seems extremely sturdy. I walked, trotted, cantered, took steep hills, and rode through both grass and gravel and the boots didn't budge. I'm very impressed with them so far! And rubs were not a problem for me. The rolled leather at the top of the boot is nice and soft, and as long as you don't allow debris to build up inside, I think it should be ok.
