I love seeing what people wear riding. We need a outfit board.

I love Nokota and Durango boots. I used to wear them line dancing in the early 90s lol. Never thought I'd be looking at boots that needed an actual function.

I do like the Justin Gypsys and I like that the leather sole is thinner than the Ariat Fatbabys.

I never made the connection but that is a good point about the leather chaps helping for support. I agree with that.

Ever hear of the boot brand Frye? They are sold for fashion but made to look like a riding boot. I wonder if I can use mine. A friend of mine gave hers to me and I don't really wear them. They seem like they belong at a barn or ranch. They look like this in a dark brown. Very nice boots. I'd like to get some use out of them.

Keep the pictures coming! I love it! I love the whole out west cowboy thing. I'm such a sucker for it. I've been taping reruns of the tv show The Big Valley and watching it every day. I love cowboys.

Ariat makes a similar boot for english riding, it's basically the same thing but without the kiltie in the laces and it's called a paddock boot.

While I do have a couple pairs of paddock boots for really cold winter temps, most of my riding is done in these:



Sneakers and half chaps.

[That picture is a couple years old and I have since added cages to my stirrups and ride in black sneakers, which is why I don't have any current pictures to show.. cause my feet just look like black blobs, between the stiurrup cages and the black shoes!]

I have never *knock on wood* had trouble with the rubber soles sticking to the stirrups, but the stirrups are also over-sized and the pads on the bottom are not all that sticky.

One thing I have to be very careful about when buying boots is to make sure to go stand on a step or something that will let me drop my heel into riding position. I must have oddly-proportioned feet because I have found boots that were comfy when standing/walking but put very uncomfortable pressure across the front/top of my foot when I dropped my heels.

Never had that issue with my sneakers.

I normally just ride in my walmart dairy muck boots, but I was given a pair of slightly used Justin Roper's from my instructor for christmas (VERY generous, so we supplied a month worth of shavings and grain.)

Here's a link that's extremely similar to them, mine are just lighter. Justin Boots Ropers 3714 TAN CORONA

ETA: They have leather soles...

My hubby bought these for my birthday 2 years ago...I have not wore them often because my knee started giving me issues and the heel is a little high. I hope to be able to wear them soon - my knee is better!!

I think they are so pretty!

I have never tried lace up riding boots.. Anyone like them how are they comfortable? Vs a pull on are they more or less comfortable?

I have both and use both, but for me the lace ups are more comfortable and give me more leway to change things to increase my comfort.
Ie: extra socks, light ankle wrap, looser in one area, tighter in another.

Personally, I don't wear the lace ups, I like the ability to just slip them on or off and not have to stop and tie/untie them.

I've worn a lot of brands in my life and I wore Justins for a long time. I would usually have to buy a new pair every year or so because I would wear through the soles and the sides. But ever since I found Ariat, I am much happier. They are more comfortable for me and I've had the same pair now for about 2 years (doing nothing but working horses every day) and they still work like new, they are just pretty scuffed up. The stitching and everything is still perfect. They've been through mud and muck and brush. They do have the thinner rubberized sole and I've never had a problem with them getting sticky in the stirrups...and, I don't go skating whenever I try to walk on grass like I used to when I would buy leather soled boots.

They are a bit more expensive (mine were $140), but IMHO, they are completely worth it. They've proven to me that they last longer and they are tons more comfortable to me.

If you have a wider, blockier foot like I do, I would highly recommend the broad square toes like what mine have. They are the only boots I've ever found that I didn't have to stretch them out just to keep circulation in my foot.
