I loved these boots at first - comfy, warm, I could wear them to ride and teach in all day. Turns out these are NOT good boots if you are someone who rides multiple horses and teaches 5 days a week. The bottom is ripping from the neoprene making them no longer waterproof and now they dig into my ankle. Wore spurs with them a few times but they won't stay steady even with the spur rest. Wish I had spent more on Mountain Horse boots as I have had them before and they were amazing.
