    Our reviewer liked these boots once they were worn in, but the sizing came up one whole size smaller than intended

    These are lovely sturdy boots of good quality that you would want to wear.

    There is a full length rear zip fastening enabling them to be fitted easily and the elasticated side gussets really helped to achieve a comfortable fit. The best element was the adjustable leather strap at top of the boot for extra tightening where required ruling out any looseness.

    The boots were beautifully stitched, stylish and of good quality. The sturdy sole offered comfort and proved really durable and non-slippy while out and about on the yard and riding.

    After initial use the boots slipped down a little causing rubbing around the ankle until they were properly worn in.

    The product has endured a lot of rain and slippery/muddy going underfoot, but the boots proved to be very practical, warm and comfortable while carrying out mucking out duties, schooling on the ground in the manége, ridden work and also holding the horses for the vet.

    The sizing came up incredibly small. The boots were meant to be tested by a friend who takes a size six. She gave them to me (size five) when she couldn’t get her foot in them.

    The sizing was very good for myself. I am, if anything, more on the narrow
    side and they fitted me perfectly. The fitting was slightly narrower than other brands.

    I would recommend this product. They have put a lot of thought into a close, comfortable fit when compared to other similar brands making it possible to use both for yard duties and riding.


    Button missing from the left boot

    The Kinpurnie branded button fell off one boot within a few days (pictured). This button needs to be as sturdy as the rest of the boot as that one element let the quality down.

    Overall these boots were good value for money very much in line with and better than similar products.


    Overall these were good quality boots but look out for small sizing
