I also vote for tall boots. I find them much more comfortable and less fiddly than half chaps. One thing I noticed is that my leg is much more stable in tall boots than paddock boots + half chaps - but that could just be my boots, not a general rule.

I also second not buying them too tall. I always buy them just right and never had a problem with them dropping to be too short. I think these new technologies have improved the fit right from the start (panels and stretchy inlays and such things).

I bought winter Ariat and I am amazed how warm they are. Summer boots I just bought from Horze and they are perfectly fine without braking bank.

I don’t show either but I still love them and spend a lot of time in them. I’ve been thinking of wearing them with my normal clothes - they are beautiful and not too many people ride in my part of the world so I won’t look like a crazy person.
