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'!).

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 is rated 4.5714 out of 5 by 21.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit & quality This is my 2nd pair of these boots! I ride every day & I ordered a pair for schooling. I was going to order a fully custom pair for showing, but after riding in these, I decided to buy a black pair for show.The quality is excellent & the fit is almost like custom!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful Boot, challenging small details I have been professionally measured for dress boots and thought that this boot would fit the bill even though the measurements were not perfect. Out of the box, this is a gorgeous boot. The calf is wonderfully stiff, the soles, zippers, all are well made. True to another reviewer - the square toe does tend to make the footbed a bit more narrow. I ordered the sz 39, slimmest calf and the extra tall - the calf was still a little big for my 13" calves and just a tad short! I probably should have ordered the "extra-extra", however the two main dealbreakers were the zipper head pressed uncomfortably on the inside of my left knee to the point where I couldn't even comfortably wear them for more than a few minutes (such a bummer!!). Also, the ankles and calf just a bit too roomy (both issues, liklely my anatomy). So, I ended up sending them back. I'm probably a little more difficult to fit. For the $$ though, this is a nice off the shelf boot!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous semi-custom dressage boot! This boot is fantastic! I love the support they give me and now I know what the big deal is about having proper stovepipe dressage boots! The DeNiro dressage boot is stiff on the outside but has more supple leather on the inside calf. If you are used to wearing the easy to break in, softer leather zip backed dress boots that have been on the market the last 5 years, breaking in these boots may seem difficult at first.I made the huge mistake of walking around the farm in them before riding the first time I wore them. I ended up with open friction blisters on my heels by the time I finished riding! It was bad, but it was my fault. You must take the time to break them in properly.My advice is: before you take them to the barn, sparingly apply the conditioner provided with the boot to the ankle, heel and top of the foot of the boot (not the outside of the boot where it is made to be stiff). Put the boots on while you are watching TV or reading a book and flex/point/make circles with your feet repeatedly to break them in. I had to do it for 30 mins a day for a week before I could ride in them without pain. I have yet to dare to walk around the farm in them again. That said, I've had them for a month and I now love riding in them.I found the fit guide to be very helpful. I did call SmartPak's customer service to get advice since I was between sizes. They helped me pick out the perfect fit!Bottom line, if you have the opportunity to splurge on these boots do it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Have the look of a Custom Boot I bought these for my daughter as her previous pair were done in, and show season is here. It is almost impossible to find a short dress boot, yet alone one in a wide calf. Not only does DeNiro have these, but they wisely place the zipper on the forward INNER calf where it won't have to take the abuse of a rear zipper. The wonderful Italian leather is supple, and should finish break in easily. These are a classic style that just say DRESSAGE.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely beautiful!! I ordered mine and within a week they were here, and they are absolutely gorgeous! Nice classic and elegant boots, the measurements for the sizing was very accurate, and they fit me like they're made for me! I'm tall but have small feet (5'8" and size 6-1/2 to a 7) and I went with the sevens but the multiple sizing options with calf and height they offer were perfect. Can't wait to show in these! I will definitely be ordering the brown pair to school in as soon as possible, absolutely love these boots, and appreciate the really fast service!!! Thanks smart pak!
