I have two pairs of half chaps. One of them is by Grand PRix (made in Italy and fabulous leather) but they are of the style that comes way down over the whole ankle, front and back. They have a kind of gusset in the front that allows you the freedom to flex your ankle in the stirrup. I wear those most of the time. I cannot wear spurs with them either under or over due to the thickness of the gusset.
The other pair is by Ariat. They are cut up above the heel and above the front of the akle (where the paddock boot laces are). I wear my spurs UNDER the chaps. These chaps are heavier and they zip from button upward. I have always found that it is better if they zip from top downwards. IMHO.
