Why We Love This

Classic elegance, modern features and exceptional craftsmanship make the DeNiro Dress Boots stand out among
the crowd.

Four layers of leather on the outside of the boot provide a sturdy, "stovepipe" feel, ideally suited for the serious dressage rider. The zipper is thoughtfully positioned forward of center on the inside of the boot, allowing seemless contact between your leg and your horse, while still maintaining a streamlined silhouette. A slightly squared toe offers a subtle modern feel.

All DeNiro Boots are made with grain calfskin leather inside and out. Every boot undergoes the unique Water Resistant Advanced Treatment (WRAT) for the leather sole as well as the outside leather. The treated leather still retains it's breathability, allowing sweat to escape, while preventing outside water from seeping in. Activated Carbon Insoles have a natural antibacterial action, while the mid-sole is made of natural leather and has a high sweat absorbent power keeping your feet clean and dry. Vibram anti-slip outer soles keep your feet secure in the stirrups, even in the worst weather. Zipper is made and guaranteed by YKK.

Made in Italy.

DeNiro Dressage Boot - Black is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 50.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful boot, great fit and easy break in I’ve just had these for a week and they are fabulous. They fit like a custom boot and are beautiful

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Buyer Beware - Do not use with Leather Webbers I reviewed the DeNiro Dressage Boot a few months ago after one of my boots had developed a hole near the zipper. I am sad to report that the second boot now also has a hole in the same spot. I had originally thought it might be a defect in the leather but have finally figured out that the holes have developed where the leather sleeve on my Leather Webbers hits the boot. The leather near the zipper is extremely thin, soft and fragile and the pressure from the sleeve on the stirrup leathers has resulted in holes. I have used Leather Webbers for years with other dressage boots and have never had this issue. The use of super thin leather near the zipper is a bad design. I have had to resort to using strips of electrical tape to cover the holes! If you buy these boots DO NOT use Leather Webbers or you will get holes too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice boots I purchased two pairs of these boots - brown and black. The quality is beautiful, they fit just fine, and though I've had them only a few weeks, they are holding up well. I agree with other reviewers who say they broke in quickly but they stay nice and stiff.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Inconsistent Sizing/ Hole in Leather In a Few Mths I am a bit tough to fit. I am a size 8, have very slim calves and am just under 5’5”. Most of the slim calf dressage boots out there are too tall for me so I was thrilled when I saw the DeNiro Dressage Boot size chart with options that looked like they would fit. I went to the SmartPak store to try on the boots thinking I would be a 38 standard height extra small calf, but the calf was too tight. I couldn't even zip them up. I tried on 2 more pairs just to be sure but I could not zip them up either. SmartPak didn't have the 38 small calf in stock so I tried a 38 small calf in the extra tall. The calf fit so I ordered a 38 standard height small calf. It took 2 months to get the boots and when they finally arrived and I tried them on I was shocked that the calf was huge. I went back to the SmartPak store, they agreed the calf was way too big but they happened to have an extra small calf in stock they wanted me to try. I was sure that they would be too tight too since I had already tried on 3 pairs in that size, but they fit! Go figure - the boots fit beautifully. I was puzzled but relieved to have found a pair that fit so well. The girls chalked up the inconsistent sizing to the fact that the boots are hand made, but the sizing difference between the extra small and small was way more than the centimeter noted in the sizing chart. I assumed it was a quality control issue. Nonetheless, it made determining my size very difficult given the large variations between pairs of boots. I was very happy with the boots - they broke in quickly and were great to ride in. However, after riding in them for an hour 4 days a week for a few months I noticed what looked like a spot of dirt next to the zipper. On closer inspection I realized there was a HOLE IN THE LEATHER! I was very disappointed. I have bought other brands of dressage boots that lasted for years and never wore through, but these had developed a hole within a few months. I had to assume that there was either a defect in the leather that DeNiro used or the is just not durable enough to hold up. The DeNiro dressage boot is not an inexpensive boot. I would have expected more durable leather and more consistent sizing for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PERFECT, JUST PERFECT They came in the morning, I rode in them the same day in the afternoon. These boots are amazing, so soft but sturdy, giving you all the support you need and then some! They look awesome, feel even better and BY FAR the best boots I ever rode in. SO WORTH IT!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a great fit I had high hopes for these boots but they were tight around the knee and very big down the calf and on the ankle .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality I am here to by my second pair of these. I bought them four years ago and they re holding up so well but I now want another pair to show in. They came out of the box and onto my foot and feel like home. Great boots. Very stylish.
