New half chaps have been launched by Italian brand Veredus.

“The Duetto half chaps for men and women are beautifully styled in soft Italian leather,” said a spokesman for the company. “They are available in various width/height combinations and complement the range of stylish, technical paddock boots Soprano and Minuetto.”

The chaps feature a durable rear zip and full-length elasticated panel for a close fit.

The zip is protected top and bottom with two press stud fastening straps. The bottom panel also has a spur support to hold the spur in a precise and stable way.

They come in twelve sizes and in black or brown leather and cost £149.
