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.

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 Field 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.

    Der Dau Contour II Field Boot is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Two Month update These boots are pretty amazing. So much so I just picked up another pair at the sale price of $350. Again, I wouldn't spend $1000 on them, however, they are exceptionally nice. They took about six rides to break in and drop (yes they do drop). They are super comfortable, the tapered toe makes it really easy to pick up your stirrups, and they look great.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I wouldn't spend full price. So I've had these boots for a couple of weeks. They fit true to size. The leather is lovely and they break in quite fast. While they are line with full grain this lining is not in the ankle area. I'm certain this is to aid in break in time however it significantly cuts down on the life span of the boot. As nice as they are I would never pay full price. You're better off buying 3 pairs of Ariats which are just as comfortable and will last longer.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Meh These boots won't drop so if they're too tall when you try them on, don't let anyone convince you that they will fit later. I'm 5'5" and have the regular height but they are way too tall for me. I've had mine for 9 months and still can't button them. Also, the zippers tend to come about 1/3 unzipped while I'm riding. This might not happen if I could button them but it's really annoying. Pros: they're comfortable and look nice

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor customer service and fit I have been on the Wellington show circuit for years, and I have personally purchased Der Dau boots and have had countless friends that have purchased Der Dau boots as well. Many measured by Joseph Der himself. Long story short, they do not fit. Joseph will ignore you if push to have the problem corrected. The customer service is poor, do not waste your time.
