IN GENERAL
These Australian boots are real mile-eaters. You can walk for hours without getting tired or sore feet.
First time I saw them, was on my veterinarian. And after meeting her colleague in the same boots, I quickly picked up that this is to goto boot for people in the equestrian industry.

As I had a young bargy mare at the time, it seemed like the perfect fit. Now I use them every day. When I ride in them, I use black half chaps from Horze. The boots are a bit clunky as they have the steel toe, but some chaps will fit just fine. My Ariat Close Contact also fit.

I don`t sweat in them, and they they are roomy and I can easily fit an extra sock in there.

LETS GET TECHINCAL
The Urethan Air Mid Sole has millions of holes that give a very good spring in your step when walking in them. They feel like jogging shoes.
The outer sole has multidirectional pattern and gives great grip both walking up a hill and down.
They feel warm and comfy in winter even with the steel toe.
The outer of the boot is full grain leather.

HOW WE CLEAN IT
I use saddle soap and some form of wax or balm brushed in for a pretty finish and more protection.

THE FIT
These come true to size, but might feel a bit clunky as they are quite wide in the foot bed. This is off course due to fit inn the steel toe, and ensuring that it is still a warm boot. The wider foot bed will ensure that the boot will fit a huge range of feet. I have narrow feet, and use a normal – to thicker sock, and their fine.

After these shoes has been stept on regularly by a big Friesian the one boot has a slightly lower toe than the other shoe. I don’t notice it often, but when adding an extra sock, I can feel the difference.

VARIATIONS
These come in black and brown
Redback boots, have a big variation in their product line. We have only tried these and know that they are brilliant both when riding and off course in the stable!
