Horses are expensive. There are no two ways about it… And if you then have the fashion addiction I suffer from, then riding in style just adds a whole new level of expensive to doing what we love.
Recently I felt like it was time for new boots, and I set myself the challenge to find a pair that doesn’t break the bank, look great and are made of good quality material to boot (pardon the pun ;)).
Here’s my ultimate “Boots on a Budget” roundup:
1.Imperial Riding lace up SPECIAL
Super stylish leather riding boots with hook and laces at front, a long zipper at the back and closure flap at top and bottom. The elastic insert at the inside calf along the zipper should make them very comfortable. And, best of all, you can decide for a set of fancy colored laces or you keep them classic and put the tone to tone laces in it.
I will be testing these beauties soon, so watch this space!
2.BR Equestrian Venetia
Very chic riding boot made of water repellent leather with a supple lining made of soft pigskin. The boot is fitted with a strong full-length at the back, which makes it easy to take the boots on and off. Both top and bottom feature a patent leather zipper keeper with press stud on the outside. The leather flap on the inside of the boot protects both the zipper and the leg. The boots promise a close fit that is provided by the narrow insert made of Italian quality durable elastic. The boot features elastic laces and a round topline (7 cm), which has been decorated with patent leather and imitation diamonds for a glamorous effect. A very special feature of this boot is its innovative outsole, which is made of injected rubber combined with leather.
3.Horka TIffany Croco boots
Lacquer leather riding boots with Croco print and Cambrill lining. The riding boots are equipped with a zipper at the back in combination with elastic and have a rubber sole with wooden heel. Super cute, super stylish and almost out of stock everywhere, but I found them with the link above for an amazing price!
4.Petrie Sydney dressage boots
Own a pair of iconic Petre boots for an amazing price! The Sydney by Petrie is a riding boot made of soft Veneto leather, with soft leather lining and a bow of 5 cm. Furthermore it has a full-length zipper along the back, and elastic along the zipper for extra comfort and perfect fit. The material has a stretch of 1cm so will always fit, has a comfortable footbed and rubber sole.
5.QHP Norah Polo boot
Very stylish multi-color Polo Boot with a sporty look thanks to the buckle closure made of cowhide leather and white stitching. The heel, nose and buckle closure are made of patent leather contrasting with the rest of the quality leather boot. The boots are easy to put on and take off thanks to the zipper on the front. Super style for a very little price!
6.Felix Buehler Bergamo classic field boots
Stylish leather riding boot, which leaves nothing to be desired with its high-quality genuine leather, slim design and elegant body shape. While the outside of the shaft and the foot area are made of full-grain Brazilian leather and give the boot a classic sheen, the inside of the boot is made of oiled buffalo leather, which ensures optimal grip on the saddle blade due to its rough texture. The inside of the boot is lined with breathable mesh fabric. The continuous OPTI zipper at the back is equipped with a spur protection. The integrated elastic insert on the outside of the shaft perfectly reflects the individual calf shape. The exclusive design is complemented by the high dressage bow and elastic lacing. The boot was made in Europe. Due to the slim fit the boots are small: please order one size bigger!
Have a stylish ride on a budget!!
