Sup all
I think its time to get me a new pair of riding boots, and was wondering if anyone has a particular favorite?

Or any brand I should stay away from etc.


Thanks

I love my Bates boots. They are zippered for easy access and provide good support and have slip resistant soles. I didn't get the steel toe version but they are available. And I wear them all day at work walking around and they are quite comfortable.

I found some Wrangler harness boots at Wal Mart last summer, 30 bucks a pair. I bought a few at that price. They're great for riding too, as they have non skid oil resistant soles. Been over a year on the first pair and they're holding up great.

Corcoran zippered paratroopers for me. Been wearing the same pair for 5 years now ( and they don't get much love ). Super comfy IMHO and durable to boot (lol pun). I like them but they arent for everyone. Check your local surplus store and try some of their boots out. Most carry other boot than just combat boots. I even bought my pair of timberlands there (timberland pro endurance- also super comfy btw). Its all about what works for you.

I've only had mine about 4 months now. But they don't show much of any signs of wearing on the soles. The toes get scuffed pretty good from shifting and me just accidentally kicking stuff. So I coated the toes of mine with some Red Wing Toe Armor. It's holding up ok.

Nope. Boots are for safety. Ive seen what happens when you go down in tennis shoes...not pretty.

;) I realize this of course. But as I posted before...each person has to make their own decisions on the level of safety they want for themselves. I ALWAYS wear a FF helmet, armored pants, jacket and gloves.

I could easily argue my choice of footwear is still a better compromise than the ones made by folks that wear boots .....but only wear 1/2 helmets.
