  • Uncovered boot zipper sliders

    Got a pair of ariat winter boots for an early Christmas gift. Love them, but they do not have the little piece of leather that covers the zipper slide like the show boots do. Am concerned that it may rub/scratch saddle flap. Didn't when I rode today, but also not something I want to be distracted by worrying about or worse yet have it scratch up the saddle.

    Any suggestions?

    Do you mean the whole zip or the zip pull? Neither should be touching your saddle anyway right?

      The zipper pull & slide, not the whole zipper. Shouldn't be, but (gasp) my riding is not always perfect, & I don't want to gouge a nice saddle if something goes awry. Just would like a little extra insurance.

        You can always take it to a local cobbler and have the piece you want added- bring your show boots with you to demonstrate what you want

            I know I'm in the wrong forum to say this (forgive me, I come from eventer-land)....but could a piece of duct tape work? At least as insurance until you're 150% sure even with not perfect riding you're in the clear.

              Of course, I am of the firm opinion that you can make/do anything with enough duct tape & craft foam. That is the plan until I can do something more permanent, but don't really want to gunk up the leather using it as a long term solution.

                  I've used electrical tape for this purpose before. Less gunky than duct tape but same effect. Works really well.
