Good riding boots probably should have a leather sole, high heel, and mine have a pegged arch which is great for long days in the saddle. Recommend getting custom made ones if you can, only wear them when you ride a horse and look after them and they will last you forever.

Not to mention it's gross to wear someone's old boots that they've sweated in. The idea of it just skeeves me out.

Well I guess I'll be the oddball here.

I have two pairs of the Ariat Probaby boots. I LOVE THEM. I can wear them to work and stand all day long without any foot pain, and I've never once felt that they were hard to get into a stirrup. I have this pair, and I have a black croc/ pink uppers pair.




I've also got a pair of Ariat ant-eater boots. They aren't as comfortable as the Probaby's, but pretty good.





And I don't even remember the brand of the other boots I have. I'll have to look at home. They're brown smooth leather with pink stitching and a square toe. I have noticed they are NOT as comfortable to wear all day. They are certainly the last pair of boots I go for in my closet.

And I've got an old pair of Double H boots. They're really lasted well over the year of hard use but they were NOT comfortable at all for my feet. They're hanging out at my parent's place as a spare pair of boots when I come home to visit.

I also have a pair of the Ariat Fatbabys, from when they first came out. These are not designed with the riding heel, and I do NOT ride in them. However, they are as comfy as a pair of sneakers. Love them!

But main message to the OP ----> There isn't a certain style you must get (unless you plan on showing at the big time). Just get something that feels comfortable on your feet, has a good riding heel on it, and you feel comfortable getting in and out of your stirrup.
