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'!).

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 its 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 - Brown is rated 4.7692 out of 5 by 26.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! I have orderd all my boots custom in the past so was not sure if these would work, but they are wonderful! I have always wanted a pair of brown schooling boots for everyday and I would buy these again in a heartbeat. I am a dressage trainer so I wear these boots all day. They were easy to break in and comfortable all day. They clean up beautifully. Highly reccomended!They run short. I had to send the first ones back and get taller ones.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality, not the best looking These boots are good quality for the price, but I was very disappointed with the shape. It's hard to tell from the photos how accentuated the calf is on this boot (even in narrower calf sizes). It does not give the classic "dressage look" that you find in other boot brands of this price range. In fact, it looks more like a field boot. I decided to keep them anyways because it's hard to find well-made, off-the-shelf brown boots at this price. But I would not buy another pair or recommend them as show boots.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and comfortable. Beautiful and comfortable boots. At first I was worried about the placement of the zipper. But they are fabulous! The zipper position makes it so easy to zip and it does not seem to rub on my horse at all.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great style and color for a great price I bought these boots a few weeks ago and while they were a bit tall for me (I ordered up in height in hopes that when they dropped they'd fit just right) they dropped nicely after the 3rd ride. I use them as my schooling boots and have gotten tons of compliments on them. The measurements I took matches the sizes I picked and they fit perfectly. The only thing is the back of the heel is a bit hard which takes some getting used to when walking around.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice boot! Weird sizing. I decided to order these boots after I tried them on at a local tack shop. The boots I tried at the store were a size six foot, medium height and medium calf and they were a smidge too tall, so I decided to a order the same boots in a short size from Smartpak. I was very surprised when they came that the calf was HUGE, although the boots I tried in the same calf size at the store fit like a glove. I decided to keep the boots anyways because I had waited so long for them (10 weeks) and I figured I could fit my thicker winter breeches into them. The boots were very comfortable right off the bat. Pretty much no break in time. I like how they are stiff enough to give that "stove pipe" look, but the soft supple leather on the inside allows me to feel my horses sides. Overall I don't think these boots are as sturdy as my old Konigs. The supple soft leather makes them feel and look great, but they do scuff easily and I get the feeling that the zipper is a little fragile. One feature I really like is there is a little piece of leather shaped like a horse's head at the top of the zipper. Once the zipper is done up, you put the zipper pull through a slit in the horse head and this stops the zipper from sliding down while you are riding. Genius! Overall I think these are nice boots for the price, but be prepared to try a few different sizes on before you find ones that work for you.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great leather quality I bout the De Niro boots about 3 weeks or so ago.I was expecting the usual stiff fit and pressure spots on my foot.But I was very pleasantly surprised how soft and comfortable thenboots were right from the get go.They are stiff enough to support your leg and ankle but not so stiff that they are painful to wear.I also like the way the zipper is protected by the very classy looking border .Since I have not had them that long yet I can't coment on how well they will hold up, but sofar they don't look any worse than the Königs and Petries I have had after wearing them the same amount of time.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice quality, not as stiff as other dressage boots I've been riding in these boots for almost a month now, and overall I'm quite impressed with the quality. Compared to the Petries that I show in, these boots are pretty soft, particularly through the ankle. The upside of this is that there is essentially no break-in time.I wear a size 9, and the foot fit perfectly. The calf measurements did not seem totally accurate to me, though. I wound up having to send the first pair that I ordered back for one that was taller with a smaller calf measurement. Although I did measure myself, the first pair that I ordered should have fit based both on the measurements that I took and on the measurements of my Petries. If in doubt, I would recommend ordering up in height and down in calf diameter.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the beautiful brown color. I have had these boots for about two months now. They have broken in well (I got them extra tall, which worked for me) and are comfy. For them to be perfect for me they would need to have a harder outside, but aside from that I LOVE them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I always wanted a pair of brown boots for schooling. I was so happy with how beautiful they were when they came. The leather is gorgeous and very sturdy. Overall the boots have held up very well with daily use. The fit was great right away.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice boots! I received these about a week ago and have ridden in them two or three times. Besides being nice looking boots, I am very pleased with how well they fit. The craftsmanship and zippers are above average. Although I haven't had them long, I feel I made a great purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boots I bought these for schooling. I only gave 4 for durability because I have only used them for 2 months. They seem to be holding up well. The leather is nice quality and I am happy with how well these boots are made. I am sure they will last a long time.
    Date published: 2013-07-05
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from These are nice boots. They are nice attractive boots, but they do run small. I would suggest ordering up a size, I consistently wear an Ariat size 8, I ordered a 9 in the De Niro boots and I could hardly get them on at first. They did break in to be reasonably comfortable. I do have really tall arches which could be part of the problem. I also usually wear a small calf size, but the medium calf size fit me in the De Niro boots. I think they are very pretty and I have gotten many complements on them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful I have wanted brown boots for a very long time, though for just a pair of schooling boots I wasn't willing to pay Konnigs' price. These looked beautiful online and the reviews were helpful. I have only been using them for one horse a day because the break in process is tearing up the back of my right ankle, but this was to be expected. I had to choose a half size smaller for the foot so the measurements would fit my leg better. Left foot fits like a glove, right foot, because it has been broken many times, is very SNUG and the leather is very stiff there so that foot looks like frankenstein for a bit. But the boots are wonderfully made fit incredible up the calf and in the ankle. Zip's like a dream and NO rubbing on my saddle like others have mentioned. I might even look into a black pair when my old Konnigs finally kick the bucket for shows!I gave it fours on durability and value because for one, I haven't had them long enough to give it the true test of 5 horses a day 5 days a week. I gave the value a 4 because even though they don't cost Konnig prices, its still pretty darn expensive!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very attractive and comfortable My boots broke in almost immediately - leather quality is excellent. When ordering them, I was concerned about possibly being bothered by the location of the snaps on the top fronts of the boots due to knee rolls on my saddle - but the snaps are in a good spot and not an issue. The only downside was that I had to wait a few months for them as my size was backordered but it was well worth the wait & I am very satisfied with my brown boots so far!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous I am so happy with these boots. I had been thinking about replacing my semi-custom Petrie Anky Elegance boots but I didn't want to spend that much money or go through the hassle of a semi-custom order. So I decided to order a pair of these boots on a whim... and I am so glad that I did. The quality is just as good as more expensive boots, they actually fit me right off the shelf, and they have a slim ankle which many other boots do not. So excited!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super nice boots I was SOOO excited to see SmartPak carrying brown dressage boots! As a professional DQ, I have been so bored with schooling all the time in black. These boots are gorgeous, and I could wear them right out of the box for a 12-horse riding day. I just used little tack sponges in my socks to protect my ankles the first two days and now they are totally good to go. Love the spanish top and the zippers are perfect, the back and outside of the boots are nice and stiff but the inside calf has a softer feel. So much fun!! The stitching on these boots is lovely as well, they are quite gorgeous really. They are just what you would expect from a high-end italian boot maker.
