And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome all around boot I bought this boot right before winter and I am so thankful that I did. Easy to slip on and off for quick chores. Cute enough to wear into town. Waterproof enough to wear for hours in deep mud or snow. Sleek enough to fit in a stirrup and ride. LOVE these boots.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Didn't work for me. Loved the boots, and it broke my heart to have to return them. Unfortunately I have a high instep and could not get the boot on with anything other than the thinest sock, and even then it was a struggle. Once on, the fit was good. I guess I need something with a zipper that makes putting it on easier.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from The new design does not fit me I bought a pair of these boots in 2011 and still love them. They fit beautifully, I can wear them comfortably all day, and they're still waterproof. I decided to re-order, and the new pair arrived yesterday. Unfortunately, they've changed the design. They look even nicer in many ways, but the footbed is too short and wide for my long and narrow feet. I'm very disappointed that I have to return them. I'm still giving them 4 stars because they are very nice, and I'm sure they fit most people well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from super boots I love these boots! I have 2 sets one for chores and one for every day. My chore boots are still going strong after 5 years of wear and tear!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boots, great fir! I read a BUNCH of reviews on another site (whose prices were higher) that said this boot runs big. Bought a pair for my daughter for Christmas in her normal size, and they are perfect. For a narrow foot, the length is just fine. Suggest trying your normal size first, then exchanging if necessary with SmartPak's free shipping. Happy feet!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these boots. The Dublin River Boots a wonderful. So comfortable. I have wide feet and they fit like a glove. I wore them with jeans and then a dress. Great looks.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent boot! I love these boots! They are warm, waterproof, comfortable & cute! They have kept my feet warm and dry through a long wet day at the barn, a very wet Xmas wreath fundraiser and a double header hockey game. I can't say that for many of the boots I own. I haven't tried riding in them but that wasn't the reason I bought them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Workhorse Boots Love this boots! Ordering this pair as a gift. I've worn mine for over two years and still going strong - through fall, winter, spring, and summer - they're always on my feet when I'm at the barn.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Your Feet Will Not Get Wet in These! The first time I wore these was during a monsoon and I was walking in 4 inches of water and my feet and legs stayed dry! They are awesome, warm, and fashionable. My only complaint is that the sole is not very supportive but I just put in a comfort sole and now I can stand in them for hours. Overall, awesome! And worth the price :)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from so comfortable! I just got these as an early xmas gift. I wanted something to wear around in the rain that was comfortable, warm and keep my feet dry rather than muck boots. These are so much nicer than I expected, I don't think I'll wear them in the barn! They are so soft and comfortable. Normally I wear a 9 which is what I ordered. My toe is pretty much at the end. So to me, they do not run big.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fitting boot I bought this to wear both as a barn boot and to run errands around town. It works perfectly for both. I found that the boot runs true to size.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Annual Favorite I absolutely love this boot and have had it for a few years now. I live in Florida so I mostly ever wear them in winter. I spray some protector on them yearly and they have kept up well. I wish I could wear them more often! Once they get too scuffed beyond repair, I'm going to buy another pair.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Useful! Living in the north, these boots are extremely useful during fall, winter, and spring; i use them in the summer too. Everyone has these. They are stylish and keep my feet warm and dry. They may seem a little pricey but will hold up for a long time and are definitely worth it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfy, and they look great, too! These run very true to size. I found that out the hard way. :)Apparently, they used to run large, so the very nice rep on the phone suggested that I order a size smaller than I normally wear. My toes did not thank her. I did a truly hassle-free exchange, and am very happy with the replacement pair. Wore them all day today, and they feel great. Can't wait to ride in them!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice boots. I love the casual versatility of this boot. Really liked. The solid footbed and apparent durability. However despite trying two sizes I had to return as the width was too narrow and I found the edges of my foot hitting the ridge of the footbed Overall the boot is roomy in the ankle, heel, and toe so a half size smaller would work well if the ball of foot widths were a tad flatter or wider. Nice boot and worth the cost.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Into the maelstrom!! As I write this, it's raining heavily, and the high winds are making it wicked cold. I wore these boots when I went out into the maelstrom, and I was glad to have them. They kept my feet warm, dry, and comfy. I normally wear a 71/2, but these boots in a size 7 fit just fine. At just 5'2", I usually find tall boots to be TOO tall, but these are just the right height. Nice to ride in, too, making them double-duty boots. They appear to be sturdy, and I'm sure they will last a long time-and will make it through many New England winters!! Highly recommended!!!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from dublin river boots These boots are great. The size runs a little large. I take a 11 1/2 but can wear these which are 11. One thing though is they are heavy. I wear them for 2-3 hours walking and can feel it in my legs. They are a good buy

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 3rd pair, love them I love these boots. I wear them a lot in all kinds of weather. They are very comfortable for tall boots. And they do keep your feet dry in the rain. I only wish that they lasted longer. But given how hard I am on them, I guess one season is not too bad.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific Boot!! I bought these boots about a year ago and had a hard time choosing between these and the Dubarry boots. After asking many people what they thought of the difference between the two boots I decided to save $250 and get these. I wear them almost EVERY day. They're warm during the winter (although I do wear a thick sock) and cool during the summer, overall very breathable. They're extremely comfortable and I find I wear them sometimes even when I'm not going to the barn! I usually wear them in the rain and even now a year later they're still in like new condition. I give these boots 5/5 stars because they're all around great boots for everything! Choose Dublin!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from My tall River boots have holes where the toe rest I have no response from Dublin regarding my 8 week old boots having holes where my toes rest inside the boot. Do not buy these boots if you are looking for a warranty. I sent them an email 6/26, 7/7 and commented on their response.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sadly Sadly, after 3 years of hard use, I had to retire my first pair of Dublin boots. I was worried they may have changed in that time and would never find that comfy fit I had with the original pair....they fit like an old pair of soft gloves...:( but I saw they still had them advertised and didn't see any differences. So I ordered a second pair...and although the first day of wearing them was not like the old pair, by the second day I could feel no differences. Unbelievable. I have difficult feet, always hurting me in anything other than flip flops or these boots. I just love em. Please note that in THIS style they run large. I wear typically a 9 or 91/2 to allow for socks and wide feet. I ordered another 81/2. Perfect. Btw my daughter also has a pair and won't wear anything else either to ride in. Summer or winter. Wet or dry. They're great!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these! I wish my Rive boots could talk, because they've seen it all. Horse shows, foaling out, trail rides, and day to day chores. They've held up perfectly. I will say I don't feel like they're supportive enough in the ankles for serious training, but they're fine for relaxing rides. After switching back to them from my paddock boots, it feels like putting on my favorite slippers. They go with everything, they're durable, and comfortable enough to live in. Which I basically do- 10 hours a day. They're great. They run a little wide, and slightly large. Next time I'll order a half size down

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I adore these boots This boots are just perfect. I needed something to wear when I wasn't riding so my tall boots wouldn't get ruined so quickly. These are perfect, I set fences in them, I walk horses in them, I run around the show in them. Basically, I live in them and they couldn't be better. I get tons of compliments, even when I'm not wearing them at the barn. The foot may run a tad large, I'm usually a 7 or a 7.5, I got a 7 and a 7.5 would have been way too big. The calf is fine, I have a "full" calf in Ariat tall boots and I can still shove jeans into these boots easily.

    Ever since I was the girl with 1,000 breyer horses and the raggity braid in her hair, I was always obsessed. In second grade I moved into a town with a barn right down the street, which is when I started taking lessons...
