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!

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.

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 4.274881516587678 out of 5 by 211.
    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! (Please add a black version!) These are wonderful boots - comfortable for both riding and walking. I really would buy them in black, as well as any other color made available.

    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!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Didn't fit but a cool boot I liked the boot itself, it seemed sturdy and I was excited to try it. But I have a 15" calf with a smaller top near my knee and it was huuuuuge at the top. :( I returned them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Balance of Comfort and Cute I bought these about a year ago. I am, by no means, a horse rider. I bought this pair so that I would have something comfortable and water resistant for the winter. These boots a perfect! I wore them every day walking around Europe last winter and they are still kicking it! I would absolutely recommend these boots (based on style and comfort)! I'm not sure about riding, but for walking use they are wonderful and super cute. I read a review of someone saying that the calf should be tighter, but I have about medium width calves and they are tight. I wouldn't recommend if you have large calves. For me, they run true to size. There were some issues with the ankle rubbing for a bit, but it just required some adjustment (make sure you break them in well). I love these boots and will be purchasing again!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy I bought this boot After my sister wire a pair through months of rain snow and mud last winter, with no deterioration of the boot. So far, comfortable and sturdy. Wish they made half sizes.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Comfortable I bought these boots hoping to be able to both work and ride in them. Unfortunately the sole is so thick that it kept getting stuck on the stirrup. I think they might be ok for work and sometimes a ride, but not safe for more.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice all around boot! Out of the box they have a waxy coating. Kinda hazy. I cleaned and conditioned them and now the leather is rich looking and much softer. They are made of a thicker leather but it's the perfect balance between rugged enough for chores yet nice enough to ride in. I even wear them as a casual boot with leggings. Rubbed my ankle at first, fine after a few days.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful boot...but runs a bit small w/ wide calf Oh, these are SO beautiful out of the box, but they unfortunately run small. I read the reviews and ordered a size up, but they were still too short in the foot. Would have ordered the next size up, as the leg was the perfect height, and they were comfy and they are waterproof. But sadly, these are not for us stick-legged girls. SmartPak, please, please, please have your designers make this in a slim calf. These are such lovely boots!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from cute and comfy I like the streamlined look of these a lot and much prefer the smooth leather for riding. They are quite comfortable and taller than some of the competition. I found they are pretty much a year-round boot though they won't be quite warm enough for serious winter weather and will be a bit hot in the full summer. I did find my pair looked quite weathered from the start but I admit to not cleaning them too often. They wear well but did stretch a bit and ended up giving me blisters. I wouldn't be opposed to trying these again, but would try going down a size.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Classy boots, comfortable and look great! Bought these boots a few weeks ago. They are comfortable and fit true to size, if not a tad small in footbed. They are a little wide up top, but comfortable and not suppose to hug like riding boots anyways.Comfortable for all day walking at horse show, and look great cleaned up!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Weird fit-sending back I consistently wear a 6.5-7. I ordered these boots in a size 7 and the foot bed is WAY too small !!! Calf fit great but there is a weird gap below the knee area. Unfortunately, I am sending them back.
    Date published: 2015-10-14
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from run very small I ware a 6.5 us shoe but need a 15" calf to go over breeches. First I order the 7 I couldn't get my foot in them and no way they would zip. Next I got the nine yes a nine. I can zip these over socks only and are tight. The foot is good in length but a lil wide. I chose to ware them around house being the good saddle leather should stretch. They did slouch and start to settle much like dress show boots. Order a size or two up and not for big legs.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome boots! Most of the "fashion boots" at the department stores are flimsy and bad knock-offs of real riding boots, so I wanted to find something that didn't offend me (in the hunt field, only Masters and men with colors wear dress boots with brown cuffs on top!!!!) and I could wear 3 seasons a year. I couldn't justify spending more on fashion-equestrian boots than on my actual riding boots, so I decided to try these. They were exactly what I needed. Durable, attractive, and well-fitting. I didn't have a problem fitting them over skinny jeans and tall wool socks, and I have athletic calves. I got them in the 39 and I typically wear an 8.5-9 in Ariat, depending on the style. I have very long legs, and these have a nice height for me as a fashion boot, falling a few inches below my knee.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks nice, fits oddly Firstly, these boots look and feel great. The footbed is very comfortable and I love the tough tred on the bottom. My problem with them is the fit along my calf. I ordered two pairs to compare sizes. The 8's fit my foot perfect but were painfully tight along my calf. The 9's were a little roomy, but not bad, and zipped up my calf easily. But they were too tall and hit my knee. These boots also gapped oddly (in both sizes) below my knee. Maybe I have a bad combination of slim ankles and knees with large calves.Overall, they're a very nice boot but they might not fit you as well as they do the model in the photo.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice boot It was a nice looking, well-made boot but it was too small in the calf to wear over jeans so I returned it.
    Date published: 2015-09-02
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good boot, but inside wears quickly Great boots! The outside wears like iron and they are super light weight with excellent zippers and snaps. The only drawback is that the inside wears out quickly. I had worn holes in the footbed in just a few months and now there are major holes in the heel area, and the heel cup is breaking down. (I've had them for 18 mos) I would love to have another pair, but I'll go with something else because of this issue.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Heart Broken I am a size 4 but muscular. My calves are not HUGE but not small either. The boot is GORGEOUS. I had wanted them for ages. The foot bed was bang on the right size...MY GOD, the calf was about a half an inch too small to zip comfortably. I got the zip up but even with the stretchy part I knew that within an hour both my calves would be screaming. GUYS! PLEASE cut boots for women with bodies not stick legs. I mean even in Zebra stripes (my work out pants) it's clear I am not a huge girl with really disproportioned legs/calves. I would recommend but only to my friends who have very skinny legs. The quality of the leather and construction is beautiful.They are work every penny. It's just the cut that is lacking.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super comfy boots I really like these boots. They are comfortable enough for me to able to wear them all day while teaching yet can still hop up on a horse if need be. The style is pretty snazzy and give the professional look of tall boots without having to worry about ruining them. The only drawbacks are that there is a gap at the top of the boot around my calves and the seam along the side does not lay flush against the zipper. But it wouldn't deter me from buying them again or recommending them to others. The comfort surpasses even my favorite paddock boots.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from smartpak never let's us down These boots fit very well. The calf is average. The foot runs small, so don't be scared to order a size up. The leather quality is very nice, seems durable. Been wanting these boots for a while glad I finally bit the bullet. Eager to wear them more and see if they are just as comfortable while riding.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nicely made, comfortable I was looking for a lesser expensive boot that would also work for non-horsey activities, and these fit the bill. I would say they fit a little large, I normally wear a 6.5 in a boot and would have preferred a 6 if they offered it, but these are fine, they are nice enough I overlook being a little big. They clean up nicely and are wearing fine, the break in time was negligible.
    Date published: 2015-04-16
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really nice boots! I wore these boots all winter in the snowy northeast - casual wear only, no barn work or riding. They have held up great, are easily cleaned and tolerated snow, slush and salt very well. Easy to break in and comfortable right away. I liked that they are tall, and while I have a slim calf, the calf was not tight. The foot is sturdy for walking without being clunky and I liked that they are made of real leather!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing After anxiously awaiting the arrival of my new boots for about a week, I was very disappointed when I opened the box. The first thing I noticed on these boots is a large scratch in the leather. Upon closer inspection, I noticed the leather was frayed around the zipper and looked very worn and beat up. The boots I received looked as though someone else had worn them around the barn for several days and did who knows what to them before returning them. Based on all of the very positive reviews of this product, I was tempted to send these back and ask for a new pair. However, the seems on the inside of the boot are very rough and I am worried that it will damage the leather on my CWD saddle. Also, if this is how beat up they look upon arrival, I have serious concerns about how they will hold up being worn around the barn and ridden in.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful in the box, not on me. I really wanted to like these boots. I tried to convince myself to keep them. I just couldn't do it. The main fault was the way they gapped at the top. They were really tight and challenging to zip, but then at the top where they snapped, they stuck out from my leg and looked really awkward. But then they seemed to almost "pinch" the inside of my leg, under the knee. Maybe I have weird shaped legs? I'm 5'5", so maybe I'm too short? Oh, well...back they went.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful Boots A student of mine has these boots and they always looked so good. I have worn other boots like this but they always get drab and dirty with daily wear. I bought these and although they were very tight in calf when I got them every ride and wear they are more comfortable. I usually wear an 8 1/2, so I ordered the nine and I recommend that because they are a tad on the small side. The boot/footbed itself is the most comfortable I have worn and they are very quiet soles on the floor. Wonderful boot, good looking and great value.
