The TOTD price seems good after doing some comparisons on other websites.

Does anyone have any experience with them?

Thanks!

I just ordered a pair, so I am going on the reputation, the cost, and the fact that come hell or high water I am soon to own a new horse and he or she will need new boots, right? :D

So far New Horse has a saddle, a new pad, and now new XC boots. I just need to pick out the ACTUAL HORSE next. :p

Actually I virtually never buy boots without personally examining and fondling them first. These I have seen, touched, and liked. :)

LOL, deltawave, I like your endorsement.

Good luck in your search for a horse, I hope you aren't waiting for TOTD to feature one! :lol:;)

I've had them for years and regularly run XC in them. They're not as light as some of the newer brands/boots, but for an old-school boot, they've held up pretty well. The tendon guard tends to work very well and they are easy to clean up post-show.

I have two full sets, front and back, of the older version of these (the ones that say Nunn Finer in big white letters on the top strap). I LOVE them. I've had them for a good number of years now (at least 10-12) and they have held up very well. I definitely recommend them! :)

I've had my pair for over 10 years now. Love them!

If I hadn't JUST bought new boots I would get these. I bought Style back boots in England in '93 and they finally wore out last year (the inside lining got some tiny tears). I highly reccommend them!

They wear very well - I've had mine for almost 10 years until the tendon guard broke but they are heavier and hotter than some of the new styles

I'm curious as to know how the boots fit for everyone since they only come in one size.. I use them on my guy who's 14.3 with slim-ish cannon bones. His hind boots seem to slip on him on xc which I'm not surprised about since he's a small horse but I wish they stayed put. Does anyone have any tricks to get boots to not slip as much?
