    Dublin Advance Zip Front Paddock Boots is rated 3.8571 out of 5 by 35.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good boots on a budget This is my second pair of Dublin paddock boots. They are attractive and affordable. My last pair lasted about a year and I wore them about four days a week. They are not very comfortable, however, if you plan on wearing them all day long. I had to purchase a shoe insert to alleviate lower back pain. But for the price, they are a decent boot.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very disappointing I bought these boots three weeks ago and the left heel has simply collapsed like a flat tire. The leather is stiff and uncomfortable and I've been unable to soften it up with leather conditioner.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from this is a nice paddock boot , but would fit some one with a very high instep and narrow toes... got it for my doughter, the price seamed nice as a 2. pair... we usualy buy ariats but wanted to try some thing else as ariats brake so quickly.....we had to return them bummers ...

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from A little disappointed... I expected a much softer and comfier boot for the price. The only reason I took a chance on these is because I have heard many things about Ariat's quality going down while retaining their relatively high prices. These boots are incredibly stiff and fold rather than bend, which resulted in a loss of circulation in my toes during a 30 min ride. I am trying to find a way to get them a bit softer and make them work, here's hoping.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent boots I finally retired these boots after four years of wear, riding 5 days a week. They broke in quickly and were very comfortable. I waterproofed them with mink oil and reapplied once a year and my feet never got wet. Great value for the price.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Only lasted a few months I got these in mid April because I wanted to save some money (Ariats did not fit into my budget). I thought these would be great boots, and I loved them right of the box. They were comfy and I loved how much leather was on the boot compared to the Ariat Heritage paddock boots. BUT then, about mid or late June, the lining inside of the boot started coming apart. Also just recently, in mid September, The stitching on the toe has come undone and it is starting to leak. Save up the extra money and buy Ariats, if you can.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice boots - run small Great price for a nice pair of basic paddock boots. No comments on durability yet as have not used them much. I have worn Ariat 8.5's for literally 10+ years and had to move up to a size 9 in this brand. The toe is rounder than most Ariat models which I think is really cute. So far the footbed seems comfortable, maybe not as cushy as the high-end Ariats, but I am using these for barn chores and not all-day wear.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great boot for the price This is my second pair and overall I am very happy with these. They are great leather that breaks in after one or 2 wears, which is really important in a day to day boot. The zippers last forever which is also really important. They do not last as long as other paddock boots I have had. The stitching tends to wear and they lose their ability to keep water out after a year or so. But if you put boot covers on, they likely will last much longer. Very happy with the product at this price point.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor Durability I usually buy Dublin paddock boots as they are relatively cheap and usually last me a long time, but I recently bought these and within a few months the rubber heel broke right down the middle. Although the price of the boot is right, the quality was not up to par.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dublin Paddock Boots Most comfortable pair of paddock boots I have ever worn. The leather is just perfect, not too stiff or soft and no rubbling at the ankles. I also wear the dressage riding boot. It too is quite comfortable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome boots I've had these boots for over 2 years and they are still going strong. The fit is comfortable even with my winter socks. Awesome boots for a great price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable and nice looking These paddock boots fit well and look professional. The first day of wear, they took a beating in the rain and mud but cleaned up nicely. Good value.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Way too narrow for me These boots were WAY too narrow for the balls of my feet. They may have stretched to fit me better with normal socks, but I was looking for boots that would also work with thicker socks in the winter. I had to send these back.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Did not fit The quality matched the price point. They were a bit too narrow.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Paddock Boot at a Great Price After my second pair of $100 Ariat paddock boots died after a little less than a year just like my first pair of Ariats and Ariat raised their prices, I was looking for alternatives. I decided to try these, and I have not been disappointed. I have used them for close to six months ~5 times a week for riding and chores, and they are still going strong! They also look really nice to boot!Width wise they were a little snug when I first got them, but they have stretched out to a comfortable width now.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Inexpensive Boots I was frustrated as my very expensive ($150+) paddock boots that I have used relattively lightly (riding 6 days a week and don't do chores in them) are dying after about a year of use and I didn't want to spend that much again if they weren't going to last. I had a pair of boots in this brand once in the past and liked them- they had lasted pretty well considering their cost and were comfortable.When these arrived I was pleasantly surprised. They have nice details like fancy stitching on the toe cap and though initially a bit stiff, after one wearing and light cleaning they were pretty soft. Though I haven't worn them for a long time yet, based on their appearance and quality I have every expectation they will last. The leather is not buttery soft like my super expensive boots, but it is nice. Considering I got these with the idea that it would be ok if they wore out in a year, I was pleasantly surprised. Especially for the price, these are excellent boots and I am suggesting them to my friends who are alse loathe to spend over $100 on boots that don't last.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent leather boots for the price These boots are pretty good for the price. The only thing I do not like about them is the shape of the toe. They are very "rounded" at the toe, whereas my other paddock boots have a more "pointed" toe and therefore a sleeker look. However, this may appeal to some people who want a bit more room (width-wise) in the toe. Decent quality and durability for the price.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from nicely made these are nicely made but not too comfortable for me. Hard to find enough cushioning in the sole and relazed ft across the top.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value I have worn these boots for four months and they still look very good. They were comfortable right out of the box. They are an amazing value for the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Boots I bought your Dublin Advance Zip Front Paddock Boots three years ago and wear them frequently and they still look pretty good. For the price, they are an incredible deal. Thank you.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boots These boots have been comfortable from the moment I put them on. The first time I rode in them they felt as if I had worn them forever. I love these paddock boots. Great quality and fit for a very reasonable price. Great for everyday riding. I have only had them for a month, but I own the Dublin zip field boots and expect that these will be as durable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nicer Than Expected! These paddocks were nicer than I expected for the price. The stitching is different on the toe than pictured and I think it makes them look nicer! Will take a bit of break in time but so far I am impressed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Boots I have small feet that are very wide and these boots fit great. I have been purchasing this brand of paddock boot since 1999 and they are great fitting as well as affordable.
