    Thumbs up Der Dau Contour Field Boot

    I've read a lot of mixed reviews on these boots... But on the customs I've heard nothing but praise for DD. I figured these would be a very good option for me, considering they are about 400 cheaper than their customs I was looking at.


    I was wondering if anyone has these? They would be used for mostly showing. I also have a very tall slim calf.




    Also, my apologies as I'm sure this has been posted before...

    I have them in a tall slim, and while they were a great fit (very very snug) in the store, they fell apart almost immediately. Stretched out like crazy in the calf, rubbed the front of my ankles completely raw and bloody (have a giant dark scar there now), one sole came unglued and is falling off. I literally rode in them 4 or 5 times.
