We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer so you won't find it cheaper anywhere else. This also means we can't apply any further discounts or promotions.
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'!).

Why We Love This

A custom look and feel, without the price tag. Now with even more outstanding features.

The Der Dau Contour II Dress Boots are handmade in New York with the finest Italian leather (made exclusively for Der Dau). The leather is durable for everyday use yet soft and pliable for comfort and flexibility. 

Each boot is made with a full lining except around the ankle to allow a softer ankle and ZERO break-in time.  The contour design gives you the most tapered, flexible ankle possible. 

The elastic zipper boots are designed with a heavy duty full length elastic back for the best in comfort and reducing the pressure on your zippers.

    Der Dau Contour II Dress Boot is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great quality - size the problem Had purchased size 11 - medium. However, boots were smaller at the angle and lower calf than expected from size chart. Lenght OK. Too tight and not room for winter socks, so had to return. Would say the style is on the narrow side.Quality clearly great.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Alternative to Custom Boots I ordered these boots when the zipper broke on my very pricey custom Konig boots. I usually have to have custom because of my long legs and disproportionately large calves. I knew it would take a while to get the Konigs fixed and it might be a good idea to have a back-up pair. After much research, I discovered that the Der Dau company offers an extensive range of sizes "off the shelf". The boots are made of very soft leather and are quite comfortable right out of the box. I would say the foot runs a bit large but I plan to take up some space with an insert. The height and calf fit are just right. The zipper in the back is VERY sturdy and is set into sturdy elastic on either side. The elastic allows for some give, so if you have to order slightly smaller width than what you measure, they will still fit. I gave them 4 stars all around because they don't appear as sturdy as Konigs and Petries and the leather is not as stiff as I would like to see in a tall dress boot. The leather at the ankle is very soft, which makes for great comfort, but I fear it will "break" and "drop" more than I would like for dressage. We'll see. In general, this is a very nice, comfortable boot for the price and a very good alternative to a more expensive custom pair that will take months to arrive.
