HOW DO I FIND THE RIGHT LONG RIDING BOOT?
For riding, you can choose between long leather riding boots and long rubber riding boots. Rubber riding boots are particularly suitable for growing, young riders. They are less expensive than long leather riding boots and therefore the right choice for children. If you want to invest in durable footwear for riding, your choice will be long leather riding boots. They should fit tightly, but at the same time not squeeze or pinch the rider's leg. Taking the right measurements is crucial, for which you should measure the following values:
- Shoe size
- Calf width
- Calf height
WHAT DO I HAVE TO CONSIDER WHEN BUYING LONG RIDING BOOTS AND RIDING BOOTS?
When buying long riding boots and riding boots, it is best to wear your breeches and riding socks to determine the correct fit. It is best to try on your new boots in the afternoon. This is because legs and feet swell slightly during the day. To check whether there is enough air in the shaft of the long riding boot, push your flat hand into the side of the boot shaft. If this is possible, your calves have sufficient freedom of movement.
Keep in mind that after the break-in period, long leather riding boots will settle by about 0.5 to 1 cm and the shaft will become shorter. It is therefore advisable to insert a heel riser when breaking in the boots so that the shaft does not cut into the back of the knee.
