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'!).

    Dublin River Boot is rated 4.6011 out of 5 by 178.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great and comfortable boot! I received these boots as a Christmas present. They were easy and comfortable to break in and I love that they are waterproof. These will be great for me working in the barn every day!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice boot I got these boots two years ago for Christmas and have worn them nearly every day since. I love these boots, however, the lining on the inside has come free recently and taking them off has become a two person job (they hold onto my feet for dear life)! They're great for riding, although the height is a little too short once it sags and it gets caught on the saddle flap which is annoying and can hurt. Overall I do like these boots, but I am going to try something else before deciding to get another pair.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Boots I absolutely love these boots - perfect for just working around the barn and even better to ride in :)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Boot Really like this boot. Comfortable. Stylish. But it runs a bit wide for me. I purchased an insert which helped with this. Wish it came with an extra insert. Only reason Im giving it 4 *

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good experience! These are nice boots. I ordered in my regular size of 8.5 but had to exchange them for a size 9. It was nice that shipping was free both ways! The free shipping was the reason I decided to order them in the first place! Smart Pak was very good about sending email updates on the shipment and the return. Thanks for a great experience and I look forward to using my new boots!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Color I said mustard yellow on my previous review but it's actually more of a dull walnut color. The leather and suede are exactly the same color!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Photo Not representative of Color I bought these boots after looking at them for several years. I haven't worn them yet because I may send them back. The color is not even close to what is represented in the picture. The leather and suede are actually all the same color – sort of a mustard yellow. Someone's review said you could darken the leather part, but the buyer shouldn't have to do that to get it to match the picture advertised!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful I bought these boots a month ago and have been wearing them everyday at the barn. the boots have plenty of space for my comfy insoles and are wide enough in the leg for thick socks for the winter! Fashionable and affordable! :)

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Strange sizing I had to send them back because of the strange sizing. I have a slim leg and wear a 6.5. I ordered a 6.5 and the boot foot was huge. My foot flopped around in it even with a thick sock. The leg was very tight, even with leggings. They are gorgeous boots, but not for me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Boots! I bought these boots 3 years ago and I think after this winter I'll finally have to replace them. They are waterproof, warm, and durable, and I get tons of compliments on them (even when they are filthy). Love these boots!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dublin River Boots are awesome! This is my second pair! I love these boots. They fit to size and are very comfortable. I use them to ride, muck and go out to run errands in the winter. They keep my feet warm and dry!!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mediocre I bought this product a month ago. Haven't worn them too much due to the high heat in South Carolina. Overall, they're a nice boot. Mine came marked up with random black markings, so I was slightly discouraged to see that. The instructions on how to properly clean this boot were very unclear and left me questioning myself. I compared them side by side to the du's and thought wow I wish I would have saved for a little longer, but that's okay because I now have the shoes. They sole and general foot area are uncomfortable. I find the calf slightly narrow, but the sizing ran accurate to my foot. It's a heavy shoe, and waterproof is questionable. In the end I'm glad I have a pair, but I am left hesitant to how long they will last and hold up okay, I am super unsure of how to clean them and if saddle soap is okay to use on them, and if so where?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love! I have wanted these for a while and finally purchased them. I am definitely not disappointed! Love the style and they are very comfortable. Great for walking around or standing teaching.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy, Hardworking, and Stylish I purchased these boots 3 weeks ago after looking at the listing daily for a year :) They are very comfy and breathable, and do not make my feet sweat at all like I thought they would. They are easy to slip over my foot as well, and broke in easily. Although they do get a tiny bit of a slouch above the ankle. The first week I had them, I wore them to the barn, led therapy horses, and also rode in them. I have been looking for a good pair of work/riding boots and these are the ultimate! One of my mane concerns was if they were okay to ride in because there was never a real answer, and they are great. I get compliments on them all the time! They came with prompt shipping, and Smartpak made me happy to order from their site!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly as described I've been wearing these boots for about 3 weeks in the Canadian winter cold and slush. They are warm and definitely live up to being waterproof. I found the color a little orangy for my liking but a little leather conditioner and they are beautifully darkened. The calf is wide enough that I am able to wear them as my everyday winter boots, where I tuck in my bootcut jeans. They clean up very nicely and would recommend them to anyone. Smartpak was amazing and quick with 2 exchanges before I found the right size. I'm a tough foot to fit as I have a long, but narrow foot and it seems that as you go up in size, as does the width of the foot. Size 9 was just too wide. The only slight downfall is that I had to put insoles as they were not quite comfortable enough to wear for 10hrs without them.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall great boot I bought the boots a month ago, they are stylish adn the waterproof feature is quite amazing! Although they are not meant for all day constant wear, in other words not very supportive for someone who is on their feet all day long. But overall i do enjoy these boots and recommend them for recreational use:)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful boots! I am totally in love with these boots. I originally bought the "wide calf" version of these, and they were comfortable for day to day walking around but when I rode in them, the calf was too big and I didn't feel as secure in the leg. Returned (very easy, refunded immediately) and bought the regular size calf instead. They are a little snug on me where I can't wear thick jeans or socks up the calf, and I have a bit bigger of a calf. I am using these to ride in for now since I know I will have to get custom tall boots since I have short legs and a wider calf.They are very comfortable to ride in, can walk through the snow for hours and still be warm, walked through deep puddles and melting snow and my feet are still dry. Plus, I can wear them to work (in an office), still look nice and get compliments!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from runs a size small I always wear a 9 (ariat, justin, and most other boots) so I ordered a 9, dispite all the reviews that they run Large. I have now sent 2 pare back and on my last try with a size 10. They also run wide... not so sure about thses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous, fit is weird in ankle The fit in the foot is spot on but the fit in the ankle is very narrow. I exchanged these twice before landing in my current pair -- 6.5 (my normal size, I had ordered down after reading reviews they ran large, then couldn't even get through the ankle so ordered 7s...turns out I just needed my own size all along).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these boots! I have been admiring Dublin River Boots for a long time, but couldn't justify buying them as we live in CA and don't have lots of wet weather. I finally decided to "just do it". These boots are great! Too nice for the barn, will be wearing them everywhere else and not just on wet days. They are warm and very comfy. Got my regular boot size and they fit perfect. I highly recommend this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved the first pair so much I bought a second Love these boots! After purchasing a pair about 4 years ago I need a new pair. Great for the barn and going out! Long lasting, great quality! Keeps my feet nice and warm! Sizing wise - get the size you normally wear. Runs very true to size.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My only boot I wear all Winter I bought these last spring(2014), since then i have worn only these boots from fall through winter. Everything from snow, sleet, ice, rain, muck, water you name it i have walked through it. These boots are truely waterproof! And if its really cold out i wear my boot socks. Other reviews stated the ankle giving out, i have not had an issues with that and i wear my boots hard. These boots will last years.Few things to remember. They are not cut big! They are cut like your hiking boots or sneekers, not your regular paddock or dress boots. So yes order the size you would for tennis shoes as the toe is cut round.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dublin River Boot I really love this boot! It is extremely well made and he fit is true to size. One of the reasons I chose the Dublin River Boot is because it came in half sizes. I was able to get my exact fit, and didn't have to worry about the foot feeling sloppy. It is easy to get on and off (especially with the help of a boot jack!)The only thing I was disappointed with, was the color didn't come in looking like the catalog showed ! I debated returning them for another pair that may have been truer to the catalog/web photo, but in the end didn't want to bother. SmartPak is a fabulous company to do business with, and I already have my eyes on another pair of boots I would like to get! I would definitely recommend these boots!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from great all around boot I ended up exchanging and buying 1/2 size bigger as it seemed to run a tad small/narow in toe box. The color isn't the same as pictured - mine are more rust colored and not as varied.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome all around boot I bought this boot right before winter and I am so thankful that I did. Easy to slip on and off for quick chores. Cute enough to wear into town. Waterproof enough to wear for hours in deep mud or snow. Sleek enough to fit in a stirrup and ride. LOVE these boots.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Didn't work for me. Loved the boots, and it broke my heart to have to return them. Unfortunately I have a high instep and could not get the boot on with anything other than the thinest sock, and even then it was a struggle. Once on, the fit was good. I guess I need something with a zipper that makes putting it on easier.
