We're sorry, but certain colors/sizes are sold out and are no longer available.

As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

As riders in New England, we know a thing or two about winter. We designed the Solstice collection to offer unique style and cozy warm comfort. These boots are what your feet want for Christmas. 

Finally, a true cross-over boot! The Solstice Tall Boot is durable enough for the barn, with sophisticated style for all your winter errands. Weathered leather and suede exterior is lined with plush faux fur. With three ways to rock the look, it's like three boots in one! Wear it with the cuff flipped up for knee-high coverage, with the cuff rolled down for aprés-ski style or with the shaft scrunched down for a mid-calf "slouch" look. Comfortable enough to wear all day, but not intended for riding.


11/15/11: These boots have an easy fit. Please consider sizing down if you are in between sizes.

    Solstice Winter Boot is rated 4.4327 out of 5 by 171.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm boots! Good quality and comfortable. True to foot size, I wanted a little room for heavier socks and it was perfect.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Impossible to get on! I was so excited to get these boots! They look so warm and comfy. I have the hardest time getting them on! Its like the lining works against my socks, I have tried everything to get them on. I have found that if I wear thin dress socks I can get them on ok. They do run about a half a size large, which is a good thing cause I don't think I would be able to get them on if they were the right size. I wish they had a zipper, that would solve everything. As far as them being warm, so far so good (of course I'm overheated by the workout struggle to get them on) I don't think they will keep my feet warm in subzero temps. For the cost, I think I would put my money into some Bogs or Mucks. These boots are not worth the hassle of trying to get into them. I am very disappointed!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Warm and cozy boots These boots fit true to size and are very warm with decent traction but still safe to ride in. My only complaint is the lack of any zipper or buckle closure. These are nearly knee high boots and it's very difficult to tuck your pants into the boot. We put a zipper up the back and now they are great!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Run big - especially for short people Got this way back in an early sale and my husband tucked them away for my Christmas present. With our early winter I dug them out only to find that on my short frame ( i have to buy kids chaps and semi custom riding boots due to my 13 " from knee to heel) these are practically thigh highs when flipped up on me - always wanted a pair but really needed new barn/ winter riding boots which is whatI got these for. My problem also is that I have a 13" calf circumference and when I pulled these on it was tiight over my jeans. I also see the nice white fleece not staying that way for long then it wont look so nice away from the barn. . Finally I did not see the video in the flash sale so did not know to size down . Im usually a size 7 or 6.5 , 37 - euro but in winter boots I usually size up to allow for socks and circulation . So I ordered a 38 and my feet slop which will lead to blisterss and a bad back . Will try an insole before returning. 3 stars due to not really the best for shortmiddle adged women! I am 130 lb which gives me a little insulation on my 5.1' frame but any more and I am sure I could not get these boots on without having to send them to be stretched.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So comfortable I love these boots. They are very comfortable, durable and I bought them at a great price!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice quality but had to return Like many others, I bought this boot knowing it may not fit over my "athletic" (har har) calf, and unfortunately, it did not. Super cute boot, good looking quality, and I was just able to squeeze them on, but it would have been a no-go over jeans or winter pants. Sad face. Smartpak handled my return promptly and courteously, and I have a pair of Dublin Pinnacle boots on the way to me as I type. Had they fit, I would have been thrilled with these boots and the price point.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So comfy and fits perfectly! I bought this a few weeks ago, and I couldn't wait for them to come in the mail! Very excited about this product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute, comfy & warm These are comfy and warm, though I did think of Santa boots as well--especially the black ones. However, these are too casual for work and aren't made for riding--as stated, and they have no extra protection inside the leg--so I just couldn't justify them. Instead, grabbed a pair of the year-round kind, which are great! And then gotta get some winter field boots....

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful boots I received these boots two days ago. They are beautiful. Unfortunately, although they fit, I will be returning them. I had planned to wear them with my breeches and they are too snug on my ample calves to be 'barn functional',

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from great value boot I have not worn them yet but I kwas pleased with the quality. They do run large, I usually wear 8.5 and got on 8 in these. The fleece is nice and fluffy. They could have more arch support in them so I will put a sole liner in. I look forward to wearing them.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Boots I just bought these boots and they are very warm and comfy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I learned a lesson I so looked forward to a pair of tall boot that weren't rubber. However, there was nothing wrong with the boot. I found out that my leg length and calf size do not size up with my shoe size in any tall English style riding boot. I thought since these had the fold down top that I just might be able to wear them, nope. So not the boot, and I really liked them. I had also ordered the paddock of this brand and they aren't going anywhere, they are wonderful so I am sure this boot is to.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice boots, Small Calves I absolutely loved these boots - the look, feel and quality - but I had to return them because the calves were too small. I am physically active and have nicely muscled calves and could not get the boots up past the middle of the calf. I have the same problem with field boots as well.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfy, warm, sizing hints were spot on. I'd been looking at these for quite some time and when they were super on sale in the middle of summer I finally had to bite. Foot sizing tips are accurate - I'm an 8.5 and ordered them in size 8 and it fits great. I'm also 5'11" and am super pleased with the height of the boots and various options for wearing them. I usually order wide calf in riding boots, and while these just fit with breeches on, there is no way I'll be able to wear them with jeans (I bought them knowing this and was ok with it). Overall great buy, and excited to get some use out of them now that fall is here!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for me! I read all the reviews, and decided to give these. Here is everything I can tell you about them: I ordered Black, and in my normal size 9. (I did not size up or down) I have high arches, a wide ball of foot but not heel, medium (8.5") ankles, and a just over 15" inch calf. They fit me great, made my foot look smaller, are super comfortable and were not hard to get on or off despite the lack of zipper. The cut out area behind the top of boot makes fit and move behind the knee very nicely :) Good height, and not clunky at all when compared to tall mountain horse rimfrost or tuffrider winter boots. They are snug in the calf on me, so I would not be able to tuck regular boot cut jeans in them. They are adorable! Perfect for breeches, skinny jeans! So, do I save them for skinny jeans and casual wear like errands/movies/grocery shopping or ruin them by wearing at the barn? I may 2 pair :}

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from On the fence These arrived yesterday, but I can't decide whether to keep them or not. I wear a size 9 in almost every shoe/ boot I own. I do have a few pair of Ariat cowboy boots in 8 1/2, so I was kind of concerned that they'd be too big based on reviews by others. They are not! They actually feel small in the toe. The foot WIDTH, however, is huge. Wide feet will love them, but my feet are narrow and swim from side to side in them. There's no arch support, which makes them slightly uncomfortable. I purchased black, but may return them for brown. When I look down at my feet, they are an odd, masculine shape. They remind me of Santa's boots. All negativity aside, they are warm and tall. I'm 5'9" and unfolded they come up to just below my knee in the front. I will wear them unfolded so to avoid more Santa like feelings. They feel nice and snug around my legs, not baggy or loose. I tried them on wearing breeches. The sale price was good, which is why I may keep them. They seem to be a good, warm alternative to a rubber Wellie. The leather looks a little distressed as some water proofed leather does, but the suede is very nice. Don't know how it will hold up. Don't think I'd want to ride in them & risk ruining the suede. Hope this helps some of you.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from These boots are fab! These boots are the only reason I am looking forward to cold weather! I usually wear a 7-1/2 and after reading all the reviews I ordered a size 7 -- they fit perfectly! I love how tall they are and slim through the calf. I have no problem getting them on and off, and for the price they are absolutely amazing. I will not be wearing them to the barn, although with the leather on the foot, they will clean up much better than an all-suede pair of boots.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Boots I just received these boots and I love them! Fit true to size, comfortable and very fashionable. Can't wait to wear them on a daily basis.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice warm boot but didn't fit in the calves I ordered these & tried them on as soon as I received them. The fuzzy inside is nice & the foot of the boot isn't too wide so I am sure that you could ride in them in the winter as well. I ended up returning them because they were a bit too tight in the calves but still fit my feet so I knew sizing up wouldn't work for me. Thank goodness for SmartPak's free returns!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classy and Affordable I bought these boots when they were on sale. I needed a pair of warm winter boots that also had style. These fit the bill perfectly. I love the fact that there are three different wearing options. Like the description stated, I ordered a half size down since I was between sizes. They fit perfectly!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Boot! Love this boot. Too put them on with jeans just fold them down and gradually roll them up.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy and Cool I also couldn't wait any longer to buy these boots once they went on sale. It's July and hot and it will be months before I can really wear these but I think they will be a winner. They fit comfortably and they seem like they are going to be warm. Thanks again to SmartPak and their generous shipping/return policy. It makes taking a chance on ordering boots or apparel a no-risk opportunity!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't wait to wear them I have been looking at these boots for some time. I knew I would love them. So the sale was my excuse to buy them even though it is July. They were just as described. I love them!! Stylish and warm. WIll be perfect for Montana winters.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from I want to love these, but... Love the height, love the lining, they fit a little large in the foot, but just too small in the calf, and jeans get bunched up. I do not have large calves, 13.25 inches, and trying to get these on with jeans just causes the boots to scrunch down, and the jeans to ride up. They are great with leggings, but I need them for every day use, and jeans are it for me. Will be returning, and going back to the Dublin Tall River Boot, which is more expensive, but way better fitting.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome sale The fit is what i expected and the quality of the boots are super. I haven't had a chance to wear them as it is now summer and they are winter boots but i expect them to be a toasty addition to my winter wardrobe. Too nice to wear to the barn.
