At least, that's what they look like, I thought! Nowhere near my size sadly, and not listed as Monacos, but I figured if they'd fit someone here, go for it!

I compared them to the Ariat promo for Monacos:

Good luck!

The great thing is that this particular seller ("Linda's Stuff") has a return policy and she makes good on it. :) I bought a suit from her recently that was too small, called to tell her I was returning it, there were no questions/no guilt tripping, and she refunded my money the day she got it back - the whole process was a breeze. Makes it easier to take a chance on size... :D

That's always nice to know! It will probably make her a more popular seller also. :)

Wow! She obviously has no idea that they are in fact real riding boots. I wonder how she came to own them...

Aren't the calf/height specs given with the size, stamped inside the boots? Maybe ask the seller...discreetly! :cool:

She has them listed as medium calf. You can go to the Ariat site or any tack shop online to find out the measurements. Unfortunately, I need a slim.....but wow, what a potentially great deal.

Does it make me a good person or a bad person that I want to tell her how much those really cost? Not gonna, but still...:lol:

I might just have to keep my eye on those!

I did find a pair of Der Dau's on tacktrader, but the seller never got back to me about shipping-

maybe someone else will have better luck?

Seeing that no matter how much we bug my trainer to do a dressage team for IHSA...no dice. Sigh, so the dressage rider(me) is going to be transformed(successfully is yet to be seen :D) into a hunter.

Good heavens! I just looked up how much those boots are new! Are any boots really worth $900??

Since I have friends bidding, the girls and I have perfectly fine boots, and I am not showing now anyway, I will abstain from bidding.... :sigh:

So i went to the ariat website to get sizing, and Medium refers to the height (short, medium, tall), and the calfs are suppose to be slim, regular, full, wide.... and no where on the listing does it say this, or how wide they are measured at. Has anyone asked the seller this yet? If not i guess thats next on my list. Because I know i am either a regular or full calf, im like in between.

Snipe guys, snipe. All this early bidding, you're just driving up the price on yourselves! :)

I have sent several e-mails to the seller and have recieved no response. Never a good thing..:sadsmile:

Sorry just got a reply, medium height, regular calf.

Absolutely cannot figure out why people are bidding... only driving up the price...

Half size too small, unfortunately. They could have been my birthday present to myself ...

So I have full calf now, in crown pros, and they are now kinda baggy, but these are regular which for 8.5-9 foot the calf is 14 inch... my full calfs previously mentioned were originally 15 (i think now stretched out)... and my calf measures 14 1/4. :eek:
