    Default Does anyone make ready to wear pull on field boots

    Ok ... So I am tired of breaking zippers. What I would like to to buy a nice pair of pull on field boots. Frankly, they fit and look better on my than anything else I've tried and I never worry about the zipper breaking.

    Does anyone still make them or will I have to go custom?

    Check eBay and Craigslist. There are plenty of used, and quite a few new ones that have been sitting around in someone's closet waiting to be re-homed.

    EQUUS Now has some Ariat Crowne Pros on close out for $195. I'm on the lookout for a pair myself.

    Quick tip: definitely take a look around for gently used ones in a size that works for you. Often they can be found looking pretty much brand new (horse folks change their minds a lot, so newer stuff gets sold often, LOL) but already through most of the breaking in/softening/dropping period. Which can be nice to not have your ankles and behind the knees rubbed raw.
    Also check the Coth Classifieds. I bought a pair of used field boots on here ages ago...they got here looking brand new but were also comfy as heck. Kinda awesome getting new boots for a LOT less and already broken in.

    Search around, consignment places have them. I was lucky enough to score a pair of Konigs for 200 bucks from one of these places that I had gussets added to, and which fit me like they were custom made for me. I have sworn I will only wear pull ons until I am too old and busted up to get them on. I have seen "wardrobe malfunction" with zips too many times to convince me they are good.

    Der Dau

    I still love the old Der pull ons. I have (knock on wood) never had issues with my zippers, but the ders are always in the trailer just incase!

    Yep, Der Dau. Usually Manhattan Saddlery has them cheap, too.

    I have two pairs of Ariats that I grabbed on eBay, and my brown boots, also from eBay, are Dehners and Marlboroughs, both pull ons. I haven't tried Smith Worhtington boots, but I have their tack and love it

    I have a pair of Elite pull on field boots, which I love. I am not sure if they still offer them without zips anymore, but if you can find a pair they are wonderful IMO. I also recommend the Ariat Crownes someone mentioned, I tried both when I bought my Elites and was torn between which ones to buy, since both were so nice.

    Thanks to everyone for the suggestions --- tough fit issues -- good to know there are some around. Unfortunately the Ariats and the Elites are a definite no go for me

    Olsons Tack in Bellevue, WA has Konig pull on field boots on clearance - marked down to $300 from $900.

    Ask me how I know...
