I would like to know if someone can suggest a pair of showing boots? I broke the zipper on mine today and its a good excuse to buy a new pair. I do need them for next weekend. I would like a soft pair of boots suitable for the hunter ring, but they must have a solid tread as my feet tend to slip in the stirrup sometimes. I looked online at Ariat Monocos, are those boots any good? I think that is the type that some of the younger girls have at the farm.
Love my DeNiro Ottovianis. The leather on the "Aurora" is supposed to be super soft, the ones I bought are the heavier leather and only took 3 rides to break in. Great craftmanship, a friend is a shoe sales rep and he was impressed!
1. Bozone (n.): The substance surrounding stupid people that stops bright ideas from penetrating. The bozone layer, unfortunately, shows little sign of breaking down in the near future.
The Ariat Monacos do not last very long! If you are just going to show in them they are fine, but I wouldn't buy them for everyday use. I have Parlantis and LOVE them! No breaking in, and the softest leather around. I wear them all day, and ride 3-4 horses a day for over a year in them, and they have not worn at all.
