    Default Need helping finding woman's size 12 paddock boots

    Hey everyone.

    I've worn zip Ariat Cobalts for years.
    I'm getting older now and with new aches and pains I need a different kind of boot.

    I found some western ariat lace ups that I thought were the answer to my problems.

    I was wrong. The foot bed is cheap and my feet hurt so much I can't walk after I ride.

    So I think I need to upgrade to a more work man like foot bed.
    And I really need lace ups because I have extreme dorsiflexion and I need the tightness of laces for ankle support.

    I'm too bendy. My ankels over flex, my feet over flex, everything over flexes.
    So I really need a very sturdy boot.

    Something more like this:
    With a good amount of lace holes plus a work foot bed.

    Problem is, I'm a 12 NARROW. uuuuuugh!
    I can't wear men's because they are far too wide.
    I've been able to get by wearing Ariats in 11. But only in brown. Their boots in black are a tad smaller.

    I've been searching for boots online quite a bit. I can't seem to find anything.

    anyone have words of wisdom?
    Horses are amazing athletes and make no mistake -- they are the stars of the show!

    Not cheap, but why not contact Kroop & see what it would cost to have a boot made to fit.

    Have you been to the Justin Boot Outlet in Justin? My favorite paddock boots
    were a pair of Justin Ropers (lace-up). Lasted 10 years with one re-sole job.
    Have tried Ariats and both times were disasters.

    Might be worth a trip. They are closed on Sunday, FYI.
