    I think the gold makes it look very tacky.

    I think the gold makes them look fabulous. It's only because I have 342908346907890 pair of spurs that I am not splurging on them, since I got brown boots last week and they would look just divine with them.

    I do actually like the gold color. BUT I could not imagine paying $200 for a flipping pair of spurs! What a waste!!

    I don't really care one way or the other about the color, but they look kinda plain to me. They don't really seem uniquely "Hermes" like I think a $200 pair of spurs should, like that one hunter saddle with the little dovetail, isn't it called the Hermes Essential or something?

    Coreene, you need those spurs!
    I cannot wear spurs as I would be launched into the next county. But you would look super in them.

    And remember, a girl always looks best in an Hermes!

    They would look so chic with your Hermes helmet. And with the girth costing 1500$ or more, 199$ for spurs is cheap! I say we take up donations for you to get them since it seems like such a good cause! I'm in for 25$. Oh I just looked at the sterling silver ones........That's more in line with the price of Hermes.

    If they are gold plated I would think it would wear off.

    Too bad.

    But they could still be worn when not riding.

    You know, the spurs aren't so special, but I really do like the straps--very sensible and tidy design, won't wear on your boots--which is important when you've just bought new boots, Coreene!

    OMGIH! Gold spurs on brown boots. Seems to me like a must-have!

    I managed to save myself $190 without even trying last week already - you can get divine brown spur straps made by an Amish leather guy on eBay for $9 with free shipping, or $14.99 if you want a pimp silver buckle and tips. I went for the $9 ones and love them. LOVE them! Besides, I have to use Bow Balance irons for a previously shredded ankle, so the gold would clash with the ugly ass irons. But I will share the link with Aunt Esther!

    Not my style, but as far as splurging on things goes in the horse world... it's not such a horrible splurge!

    Those sterling spurs? Would most definitely get me launched.


    Speaking of Hermés, did everyone see this from the Chronicle of the Horse twitter?

    I have the silver tip/buckle spur straps from the Amish leather person on Ebay In brown and black....

    $190 isn't sooooooooo bad for spurs (if you have disposable income anyway)... you guys have seen the prices on the Sprenger German silver spurs... right? http://www.doversaddlery.com/product.asp?pn=X1-2514 $109 just for the spurs (before Dover's crazy shipping costs) and no fancy nice leather spur strap.

    I have a pair of spurs just like that (shape not color!)... they're antique US Army Cavalry spurs. I've been looking (not very hard, obviously) for a place to get straps that fit!

    Is the guy's store called "The Amish Leather Person on eBay" or would someone share his eBay name?

    "The Amish Leather Person on eBay" is lancamishgoods
    "Dressage" is just a fancy word for flatwork

    I would love a pair. Maybe they can make Stirrups to match? Then my brass buckle bridle and Aurigan bit would match the rest of the hardware ... I wear brown tack, too. So opulent!
