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
Fashion, comfort, performance - the Solstice Waterproof Leather Boot has it all! These incredibly versatile crossover boots are just as perfect for barn chores as they are around town as a fashionable, functional footwear choice across the seasons. And they're affordable to boot!

Favorite Features

A note about these boots: Everyone has a favorite pair of boots that are well-worn and full of memories. Every time you wear them, you’re adding wear that tells the story of where they’ve taken you. Instead of making you wait years for that unique, well-worn look, every Solstice boot intentionally looks weathered and broken in right from the start. As soon as you take them out of the box, they’re ready for you to continue telling their story.

    Solstice Tall Waterproof Leather Boot is rated 4.2913 out of 5 by 206.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Riding Boot I took a chance on this boot because I wasn't sure the smallest size would fit. For this boot the size 37 is listed as a US size 7, but on their tall buckle riding boots (https://www.smartpakequine.com/pt/solstice-waterproof-tall-buckle-boot--12673), a 37 is listed as a size 6. So I went ahead and ordered the size 37. In most shoes and boots I'm a size 6 or 6.5 and these 37's are a perfect fit. They could use a little more sole padding on the inside if you're going to be walking a lot, but other than that I'm really happy with the purchase. Good quality leather and a good quality riding boot for the price.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Large sizing not accurate, much too small When you wear a size 12, you get excited to see a womens boot offered in my size. I really had my hopes up with these boots as I am a solid 11.5-12, so ordered the 12 after reading the reviews. Unfortunately, even the 12 was MUCH too small, my toes were not only hitting the end, but scrunched at the end of the boot. I would say it fit more like a 10.5. Unfortunately, with a size 12 there is no option to get the boot in a larger size and they had to be returned.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very comfy boots Put them on the day they arrived and have worn them daily since. Very comfortable, perfect fit, waterproof up to ankles and warm. Only disappointment is the edge of sole is beginning to become unattached where the foot bends and meets the leather. I will contact Smart pak to see how they'd like to resolve this. Happy with then other than that.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from love these boots I purchased these boots about 2 weeks ago, they are very comfortable, functional and true to size… plus everyone at the barn is asking me "where did you get these boots… love them" so there you have it:) great value for a great boot

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish and sturdy Bought these primarily for my office job/around town. Nice quality--broke in within a few days and I expect them to last. Better yet, they give a slim profile for my size 10 feet! Ordered a size up to allow for winter socks.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome features and style as stated, are TRUE! Bought these boots a few weeks ago. Wore them that next day after receiving them. We've had lots of rain so: lots of mud but these boots kept me dry and warm. Had to go into town so I hosed them off and they cleaned up very well and look great! They are comfortable and stylish. Love 'em

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful boots! Look well made! I loved these boots right out of the box. Unfortunately, I suffer from the "chicken leg" affliction, VERY skinny calves. SO these are too wide in the calf for me. Too bad, because they were really great looking boots. For those with normal, even normally slim calves, they would likely be great.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Disappointed--Way to small! I was so excited when I saw my size listed that I happily ordered a pair. When I opened the box and looked at the size that was supposed to be a 12, I laughed. It looked like a 10--I didn't even bother to try it on. Come on SmartPak--you can do better!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beautiful boot but defective sizing I fell in love with the boot online and ordered a 40(US size 10), my usual size, But when I tried them on they were a size too small. They fit well in the calf but my toes were hitting the front of the boot. I exchanged for a 41(US size 11) after reading the reviews online. I received the boots and to my amazement, they were even smaller than the 40(US size 10). My mom tried them on, she is a size 8 and said they fit her well. I spoke with customer service and they said the manufacturer must have mislabeled the boots. After speaking with them, I decided to stay with the 41(US size 11) and when they received the boots from the warehouse they had an employee who is a US size 10 try them on and give them the okay before sending to me. They also expedited the boots so I wouldn't have to wait for them to process my exchange before sending the new pair(The SmartPak CS team goes above and beyond when helping their customers).So, I received the boots. They fit it the foot, but the boot was now too high up on the knee making it uncomfortable to walk, and also causing the boot to crease around the ankle.My solution: With crushed hopes I gave up on the boot and exchanged for the Solstice short waterproof boot with Buckle. According the the reviews on this boot the sizes run big, so I ordered a US size 10. Fingers crossed!I saw and am glad the boot worked out for a lot of people, if you're thinking about purchasing the Solstice Tall Waterproof Leather Boot I hope it works out for you, too! It really is a beautiful boot!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wanted to love them I wanted to love these boots - I had my eye on them for a while, however, they didn't fit right. Too tight around the calf (I have "average" sized calfs) even though they're gusseted it wasn't enough, and the foot bed wasn't wide enough either. I wish they had more sizing options because these were just what I was looking for? I felt sad but had to return them

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Runs small I had to return them twice to get a big enough size I usually wear a woman's 9-91/2 US size. I ended up with the 41 in this boot. The foot is snug and there is a little extra room in the calf area. They are a cute style but not as comfortable as expected. A bit pricey for the quality.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Snow-Tested and They Passed With Flying Colors! I bought these boots a while ago and have been using them at the barn and around town afterwards. I ventured out in the snow in them after the "Blizzard of 2016" here in Northern VA (to minimize snow over my boot tops) and they were amazing! legs and feet warm during my hour spent outside, which included just standing knee deep in the snow and admiring the scenery! (Yes, I LOVE snow). Highly recommend...

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Exceeded my expectations in appearance The boots arrived on the first day of shotgun season for deer; thus officially ending my trail riding season, so I have not had an opportunity to actually ride in them. I purchased them now, instead of waiting till spring, to take advantage of an email special offer. They are beautiful and I can tell they will be very comfortable once I get the correct size. Ninety-eight percent of the time I take a size 8, and on rare occasions take an 8 1/2 ,but my toe was really pressing in these boots and I knew I'd be sorry if I didn't exchange them for 9's. I would say these boots very definitely runsmall.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not a good fit for wide calves These are gorgeous boots, but sadly do not come through on the sizing for wide calves.
    Date published: 2016-01-18
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I wear these EVERYWHERE I bought these less than a year ago because I had a pair of winter riding boots and prefered them to paddock boots with half chaps. I wanted something like that for the summer: that I could muck out stalls in and then get on a horse. I do just that. I also wear them out, to work, to the mall, out to dinner..... I get complements ALL the time. The only down side is the footbed leaves a little to be desired. There wasn't much padding. I have to have orthotics, though, so this worked in my favor. I'm thinking about getting a second pair that stays clean for everyday wear and if they ever make a black pair, Ill be the first in line.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from GREAT BOOTS!!!! I bought these at Equine Affaire as an early Christmas present. I LOVE them. I normally wear a 9.5M but these are sized 9 or a 10. The foot is a smidge big but I wear thicker socks in the winter anyways. The legs do fit snug but they have stretched out with use over winter breeches. The only down side was that I sprayed them with a waterproofer and the color ran on the shaft of the boot. My mistake. I still love them!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally love these I bought these boots a couple years ago, and it's taken me a while to get them just right. I'm a 7 or 7.5 med calf reg height in an Ariat, and I bought these in a 38. They are a little big in the foot and were too tall at first. I have compensated by adding heel lifters and a cushy insole. Now I absolutely love them! They could be a little tighter around the very top (they kind of stick out like wings), but I can live with that.
    Date published: 2016-01-09
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful leather. I hesitated to buy these because my feet are so hard to size. At first, they felt a little tight, but with wearing have become comfortable. Really nice boots.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great look and fit I am so glad you carry this boot in a size for tall ladies! I ordered the 42, and it fits great. My advice is if you wear a size 11, as I do, to get the 42.I wear a size 11 in Justin boots, and my size 11 Ariat paddock boots fit with thicker socks or an insert, without that they are just wee bit too loose.my experience with the sizing. 42 is a size 11.On another note I am so so glad you offer these boots for tall ladies! Too many times a cute boot is only offered up to a size 10..they are as cute as they are in the picture. I finally have a pair of cute boots, that FIT! I have honestly been looking for a size 11 in a cute go everywhere boot for a long time!I would definitely recommend these boots!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Too big for me :( I really wanted to like these boots unfortunately they're too big and roomy for my size 6 1/2 foot and also too big for my small calf circumference. They were taller then I could wear going up to the crease where my knee bend is(I am 5'2"). I really wanted to like these because they are beautiful boots and very well made, unfortunately they just weren't for me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Workmanlike but also stylish enough for my office Sturdy, excellent tread, and nice leather quality. Ordered a 10, which is already a size up from my usual, and will be exchanging for an 11 to accommodate winter socks. They come up to the back of my knee just like regular tall boots, and the calf is slim enough even for my slim calves. Planning to wear to my office job as well as around town, with the occasional trip to the barn.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfort and style! These boots seem to be true to size, and were comfortable from first minute - no break in period. They stay tall to the knee without being stiff, and no slouching down to mid calf like other"tall" boots I have. Nice grippy leather and supportive footbed for riding, good medium fit around the calf. Love them so far!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I ordered these books twice, trying to get the right size. They ran extremely small in the foot and large in the calf. In the end, I had to return both pairs and go to a different brand.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from love these boots Great fit and so comfortable after a short break in period. I have worn only for casual use and fashion but live in wet weather climate and these keep me warm and dry. Many complements from my friends.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally found my dream boots! Great fit, foot bed as comfy as sneakers with good traction. Just moved to US after a long stint in UK and this is the first pair of footwear I bought. Felt stiff when I first donned them but they broke in quickly after keeping them on for about 30 min. Very pleased with the rich dark brown colour and the quality of leather. They look very chic without compromising the comfort. Will be really glad if they turn out to be as durable as they look. I'm 5'8" tall with long, lean athletic legs and usually wear a size UK-7 (US-9 according to conversion charts). In UK, I mostly had to size it up to UK-8 in boots. So going by that and most of the reviews here, I ordered a size up (US-10) and I'm glad I did! Very comfy fit with just the right amount of room around the legs and in the foot bed for tucking in skinny jeans & medium socks respectively. My foot length is 25.4 cm, calf circumference is 13.5 inches, the back of my knee is 18.5 inches from the floor. Hope that helps along with the pictures in picking your size. I placed the order on 16th and they arrived very well packaged on 19th. Thanks for the excellent service, Smartpak!
