    Default Does anyone have these boots? Ovation aeros

    I'm a brown boot fan and I saw these and I Was wondering if anyone had them.
    I think they're fairly new so no reviews out there

    I bought a pair and returned them.

    They're lined in this bizarre padded material, not leather. The foot was comfy but I just felt the rest of the boot was a little strange.

    I ordered the brown because I said the same thing, but I also found the color to not be very even. Quality was okay I just didn't like the feel of the lining especially for the price.

    I love mine.

    They are super-insanely soft. They are made of a pull-up leather, not calf like regular tall boots, so yeah, the color isn't like a brown field boot. However, you can condition them and change the color a bit. I condition mine to cover scuffs and such.

    As for the lining - again, they aren't like field boots - kinda work meets riding boots, and the lining wicks away moisture really well. I never feel sweaty or gross in these boots. The footbed has some sort of fancy German anti bacterial/microbial/odor material and is super supportive.

    I love mine for schooling boots and have even cub hunted in them.

    Oddly, I was entertaining the idea of buying a pair this weekend (late nights are making me too impulsive...not a good thing while trying to clean out and pack up a house!). I would've made the purchase if they came in a slim calf. I love the look of them, and the idea of going barn-to-town is always a plus for me!

    Personal champ, would you mind posting a picture if you get a chance?
    I'd use them as schooling show boots. I don't do rated stuff.

    What is "pull up leather?" The item description uses the same phrase.

    Those look cool to try!

    I wonder if they drop much?

    I have a pair (bought off of ebay) and get compliments on them all the time at horse shows. They are a bit light in color but as Personal Champ mentioned, they can be darkened a bit with conditioning.

    They seem to have dropped a little but I really don't ride in them (or much at all lately) often so I'm probably not the best person to ask about that.

    The lining did take some getting used to (I found it very odd too) and I wish they were more fitted at the ankle... but for an off the rack affordable brown boot to have just for fun, I'm not complaining

    Here is a photo before I did anything to darken them.

    I don't have any photos since I've darkened them but I like it even more - they don't feel as brightly colored to me any more.

    Ditto! They would actually fit my calf. Now, black or brown though? And to I splurge with my bonus or wait for tax return? Hmm.

    How are these boots holding up? Do they drop much? Do they stretch much?

    Mine are holding up well, for my needs. They've got a nice worn in look and they're very comfortable. They haven't dropped much. Again, just my personal experience. They're really soft and good looking, and I have no regrets.
    I only ride 2x/week though. They also serve double duty as fashion boots.

    I actually tried on a pair last Friday. I loved the way the foot felt - like sneakers - but the soft leather just didn't seem like it would hold up. I'd totally have some as a spare....
    Y'all ain't right!
