    Rated 3 out of 5 by from narrow footbef I returned them. The tops of the boots were crumpled and the footbed was very narrow.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow, the comfort! Just got these boots last night and I'm already in love with them. Super comfortable right out of the box! The fit matches the sizing chart. I love the wider foot someone with wide feet, normal narrow tall boot foot beds squeeze my toes. Not these! Can't wait to actually ride in them.Now for the not so good...not sure how durable these boots will be since the leather isn't super high quality, but it is nice and soft. As some other reviews mentioned, the leather color has bled slightly on my hands. I plan to use a leather dressing to seal them so that should take care of it. But for the price and comfort, I think they are still a very good buy!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Had to send back :( The legs fit perfectly, but the foot part was huge and clunky, had to send them back.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good buy Bought these a month ago to use at dressage shows. VERY pleased with the leather quality. Fit is just what I needed. I wear a 7 1/2 with a wide calf and they are perfect. Zipper works well. They have a very nice appearance. Time will tell on the durability, but I'm extremely happy with my purchase so far.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice boots for the price We ordered these and were pleased with them except they were too short for my daughter's long legs. So they had to go back. She needs custom ones made because she is thin and tall unfortunately. They would be great every day boots.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really nice boot for the money! My old stock boots passed away and I was in need of an everyday pair asap.I saw these on the Smartpak website and thought they looked good, elegant, not blocky like so many stock boots and the price was in the range of what I could afford. When they arrived, I tried them on, the zipper works well, they fit really well and the leather was soft. I rode in them, looked in the mirror of the indoor and said, "Hey, these look pretty good on!" My only criticism is that there are two ridges on the boot soles, that make it hard for the stirrup to settle down as the ridges push the stirrup away a bit. Otherwise, I love the boots.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE riding in these boots! Wow, this is the first time I've gotten boots that fit so well through the ankle, and what a difference it makes! I can't believe how well I can feel the horse's sides. I haven't had these long, so can't speak to durability, but I'm sold on their fit and comfort. The footbed has nice cushioning, so I'm actually not in much of a hurry to get these off after riding. I hardly had any "breaking in", after a couple of rides they really feel great. I'm going to take care of these boots in the hopes of them lasting a LONG time!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great deal! I haven't actually ridden in them yet, b/c they're going to my cobbler to have the top of the calf taken in a bit, but they are of very good quality for the money. I'm pleased that there is plenty of room in the footbed (I have wide feet and a high arch) and they look really nice! I've yet to have a pair of boots I didn't have to have altered in some way for a really good fit, but taking in the top of the calf is really not a big deal and once that is done they will have a custom fit! :-) Thanks, SmartPak!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good choice This was my first tall boot purchase except all weather type. I wanted them for pleasure riding and anticipated taking dressage lessons, but did not want to buy something super expensive to start with. I really like Ariat products and tried to like them best of the several pairs that I tried from Smarkpak but these were the most comfortable. I got size 8.5 regular and they fit perfectly. No break-in as they were comfortable at once. Even unmounted, I don't feel like I am in riding boots. They are not super high quality like more expensive boots, and are showing some wear after more than a year of frequent riding and lessons, but they have served me well, fit well and are comfortable. I am starting to look for a new pair now and can justify something more expensive, but hope I can find something as comfortable as these.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not the quality wanted I was hoping perhaps I was getting the steal of a deal. They are nice boots, but I decided to send them back and go ahead and spend a bit more for a more quality boot.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these boots! I bought these boots for a show and when I got them I was amazed how broke in they already felt! Im a larger girl and have 16 3/4 calves, the wide fit perfect! The only problem I've had is the overall height of the boot was to short but the Spanish top hid it as it came up just high enough:)I have extreamly long calves so aside form buying custom boots I'll just have to live with it lol

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Boots These are very nice boots for the money. Run true to foot and calf size, unfortunately for me they were way too tall so they were returned. I would still recommend them if you are looking for a nice boot on a budget.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from third time a charm First pair I received quickly but there was glue around the outside edge of the boot and one of the boots fit weird and was uncomfortable. Returned and replaced with another pair. This pair fit properly but had a big scrape in the leather on the toe of the boot. Returned and Smartpak did not have any more in my size. Needed them for a show and ordered elsewhere. Finally got a pair that was free from defect. For the price these boots are a great deal if you can get a pair with out defect. Smartpak customer service is always wonderful and I do not blame them for the issues with the boots.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful boot, calf too small Great quality but the calf runs really small. Had to change it for a larger size
    Date published: 2013-01-28
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Too big in the calf I have very slim legs, measure 13 inches around the calf. These boots are meant to be for a 14 inch calf, which is about as slim as the measurements get but I could easily fit my whole hand inside the top of the boot when it was on my leg. Apart from that they looked nice!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Dress Boot For the price these are a good dress boot, however nothing fancy so don't expect a "custom fit" feel or supple leather ... but for dressage you tend to want a stiffer boot anyways. The fit for me was a bit too tight as I have a wider foot, so had to return them. But if they fit you then you can't go wrong especially for the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Product I LOVE these boots. I have never had boots feel broke in from the first time I put them on, until these. Never thought I'd find comfy tall boots but these aer amazing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent boots for schooling or local shows I love these boots ! I buy about 1 pair per year and wear them every day . So much better quality than the Dublins. Zippers actually last until the soles wear out ! Fit is as described and they are comfortable right out of the box. Down side is they do not polish as well as I would like but boots twice the price appear to have the same issue ie Victoria dress boot. Overall great value and comfort . Highly recommend them especially if you want to reduce the wear on expensive show boots.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fits like a glove I was pleasantly surprised at how well these boots fit me. The footbed was good, not too narrow nor too wide. I normally wear a 8W in shoes but can sometimes fit in 8R so getting the 8W in this boot I expected excess room in the foot but not so. The calf fit nicely, I'm right on the line between regular & wide w/ the calf as well but decided to go with wide and they fit great. The narrow ankle may not be trendy but I like it better than too much boot dropped and gathered around. These boots make me feel like I am wearing a nice pair of half chaps. Maybe the quality isn't great but if I can get comfort for a few show seasons at this reasonable price I will be very happy.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too high These boots are a good first dress boot. They didn't fit me well at all though so I am returning them. They are pretty high behind the knee (19" from boot to back of knee) and since the ankle is pretty tapered I don't think they'll drop very much. I bought the wides and the widest part of my calf is 16" and the width fit. The biggest problem with these were the height for me. I couldn't bend my knee at all.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Way Too Short, Very Flimsy I realize you get what you pay for. I bought these because I needed dress boots to school. I ordered the wide, because I was on the cusp between regular and wide. The were a little on the wide side for my calf. The leather is really thin, so I don't think these will hold up for riding use. They were also incredibly short. My Ariat talls are just tall enough for me, but the very top of the Spanish top of the boot was still a good 2 inches below my knee. That was the main reason I returned them. I would say these would be cute fashion boots, but for riding, I don't think these are very good.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from OK boot for the $$ The boots were as expected for the price, the leather was not the highest quality, but seems like they will last. They are made to fit a TALL calf, though they were a bit tall for me at first, after a few weeks of wear they have dropped to a more comfortable height.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peyton Love these boots. Bought these more for fashion than riding. I am 5 ft 8 1/2 in. First boots that I've found that are both tall and fit in the calf. So comfortable right out of the box!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice surprise After trying six pairs of non-custom boots and being very disappointed, I found the Tough Rider Baroque Dressage Boots to be a very nice surprise. I loved the fit, shaped around the ankle, snug through the calf, tall Spanish top on the outside. They are very elegant looking, very soft leather, and a great fit. The regular calf fits me perfect at a 14.5". The top of the boot gaps about an inch or so just below my knee, but other than that they fit me like my custom Der-Dau's. No break-in time either, very comfortable right away. I am very happy to have a pair of boots to ride in daily that look like custom show boots. Remarkable value and great fit.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tuff Rider Brand I was surprised to see when I opened the box that these boots were Tuff Rider Brand ( never mentioned in ad ) . I would never have bought them if I had known as Tuff Rider is notorious to have bad zippers. I keep the box and receipt and will return them if the zippers are broken in 2 months as previous Tuff riders. I put them on and my hands were black , obviously not well dyed and no great leather either but what can one do for that price? I do not like the extremely narrow ankle either .... but if the zippers are holding then it will be perfect for daily schooling, that is all I am asking. I will keep you posted.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from good deal For the money they are a useful pair of schooling boots.The fit thru the ankle is narrower than usual, but overall not unhappy with the purchase.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice, but tight in the calfs. These boots are beautiful! The leather is soft, and soles are really well made. The only thing is that the calf is really slim. I measured my calf at the widest part and it was 15.5. So I order the Wide calf which is supposed to fit up to 16' calves. Well, it was super tight and I could barley zip them up. I am 5'10 and 150lbs and wear a size 10 jean. Just any FYI - These are meant for skinny women. Also the ankles are very tappered, so it you have widish ankles they really wont work for you. I am keeping mine because they are so beautiful and a great price, I am just going to have to give myself a few extra minutes to get them zipped up before lessons.
