Hey ladies, sorry for sneaking into the tack room even though I know very little about riding, but the ladies in the Style section suggested I pop over to get your reviews of some boots I'm considering.
I'm looking for WARM but stylish boots to wear for country walks, visits to country pubs and possibly even to wear to work on snowy days. The Style ladies recommended Durbarry's or Ariat Grasmeres, but they are unfortunately out of my price range. I tried on a pair of Dublin Pinnacle Boots today and really liked them (they look like a rip off of the Grasmeres) Also on my shortlist are dalton country boots
Does anyone have a pair? Can you tell me how long they last? How warm are they? Do they withstand snow?
Any suggestions of others that might fit the bill?
I've had two pairs of Dublins (valley? river? something like that) that both fell apart quite quickly, can't justify Dubarrys because would only want to wear them on dry days so not practical, seems £too much for every day life
at moment have some indestructible toggi (think they are called hudson oak) that have survived a lot of riding and walking in all weathers, some other toggi boots that I don't think they make any more, also indestructible it seems, some Norfolk boots and some posh black ones for sj/hunting that are not allowed in mud! Just realized have three pairs of toggi boots which might explain why they last so long. I like boots though mine are probably not stylish either. They always seem to be a size too big.
