About these boots.......

Remember these? Well, I got them, couldn't wait to try them on....when I did I couldn't zip them up!!! I was soooooo disappointed, my calves are wide and I thought that these boots would have some stretch in them but no! I guess you have to have skinny legs to wear them, I used to have skinny legs....way back when. Hum, just when was that anyway??? LOL
Oh, well, I had to send them back and decided to order another pair of boots. Paddock boots this time.

Here are the ones I have now, Mountain Horse Rimfrost paddock boots. They are nice, and WARM and waterproof, good! The only thing they are very stiff but I just got them yesterday, hopefully they will get broken in before long. I have worn them twice to the barn and my feet feel really toasty and they have good grippers on the bottom.

What kind of winter boots do you have???

I'm a big fan of the Mudruckers insulated boots - I use the tall ones - they're not much use for riding but they're great for barn work.

I like those paddock boots!
I need something like that, warm and waterproof!
I am wearing my Ariat's right now, I do get water leakage, which really sucks on a cold day. I brought my Columbia waterproof boots for the days I am in the wash rack a lot, but they don't have a hard toe, so if I get stepped on, ouch!
My feet stay warm because I wear wool socks, and I can't live without the toe warmers!

Sorry to hear the first boots didn't work out, they look really cool. I typically have the opposite problem, most boots are too wide for my calves, LOL! I guess we all have our issues. Love the new paddock boots! I wear a pair of MUCK brand boots, they have great tread, come up high on the calf (I tuck my jeans in) and keep my feet toasty. I have to wear thick socks with them, though. And I don't ride in them.

Darn! Sory about that. I have a problem with tall boots fitting over my calves, too. I can't order boots online at all.
Sadly my calves make it tough to find cowboy boots, too. I like to think we do't have fat calves, but muscular calves. hehe!
I tend to wear paddock/ankle style boots for riding. But I'd like to find some without laces because they inevitably come undone while riding or mounting. bah!

Those new boots look great. I hope they work well for you and soften up. Do they feel heavy?
