Anyway thought I would rant today about my FAVOURITE riding boots that I so DESPERATELY want!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! First let me say that I have been trying to look for a nice showing boot since I have a really icky old pair. Then my eyes crossed the Ariat Monacos and angels started singing. LOL. Let me show you these godly beautiful leather field boots that I've been drooling over:
"These boots are gorgeous, but the leather is like glove leather, and paper-thin. I went to my local tack store and found that they fit right out of the box, dead perfect, just like custom, and looked amazing. Many people have just purchased them at my facility, and I'd started saving money for them...but, sadly, they are wearing out SUPER FAST!! One lady is on her second pair; she had the first pair only 6 months before they wore out--seriously, holes so big on the inside calf they were unsalvageable. However, she loved them so much she bought a second pair. Everyone else has worn them only a few times and then become extremely alarmed at how fast they were wearing out...so they are back to schooling in their old boots, and the beautiful new Monacos sit in their box, waiting for the shows. Upside: the zippers are FANTASTIC! A HUGE improvement over the old Ariat zippers. If they can just work out getting these boots to last like customs, they will win me over in a heartbeat. Of course, it's probably great for their business that women are buying a pair every 6 months...too bad I can't afford to do that"
And then I thought "Oh No :-( but but but but but why???" Then I read this:
"These are some of the nicest field boots I've ever seen and are very popular on the A show circuit. The stretch panels on the inside allow for a truly custom fit and the ankles are not bulky. I've gotten so many compliments on these boots! There is barely any break in time... that being said...keep these boots for showing and not for daily use! The calfskin leather is so soft that they will not hold up well to everyday use. The inner calf will wear from the friction against the saddle and horse. Well worth the price tag, custom look and fit from a stock boot."
So, maybe maybe it is possible that I can get them! Since all I want to do is use them for showing purposes and wouldn't be schooling hard core in them since I have a pair of schooling boots which are Ariats and are fantastic! Ahhhhhhhh what do I do? I still really want them even if they wear fast LOL ! I'm such a girl, I'll spend the money even if they're not !00%.
