Just bought these off ebay and they are really too tall for me! This is my first pair of dress boots (need them for formal day hunting), do dress boots drop less than field boots? Or does anyone have experience with this boot specifically?
My experience is that dress boots don't drop quite as much as field boots will. Also take into consideration whether the boots are fully lined, or just cuff lined, etc., as well as the softness of the leather. The leather was quite nice on my Elite field boots, and I would guess they dropped about an inch, however they are not fully lined either. If you boots are fully lined, without zippers, I would guess they would drop a maxium of one inch, but maybe as little as 1/2 or 3/4". If you have zippers they will drop less than boots without zips.
