I've been coveting my trainer's Dubarry boots ever since we chipped in to buy them for her a few Christmases ago.
So I finally caved in and ordered the Carlows on Smartpak, justifying my purchase with the clearance pricing and as a congratulations present for being accepted to Cornell Veterinary School (It's COLD in Ithaca!)...
Now I'm just hoping that they fit my monster calves (the size online is just barely my calf measurement- does anyone know if these boots will stretch/give at all?).
Thank god for Smartpak's no-hassle returns on sized items!
They won't stretch, but the calf fit is generous to start. I have a "full" calf by tall boot standards, and I find my Galways a little too roomy, as in, I can also fit my lower arm in there when I'm wearing them.
"Why would anybody come here if they had a pony? Who leaves a country packed with ponies to come to a non-pony country? It doesn't make sense!"
