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'!).

    Tredstep Raphael Tall Boot is rated 4.0357 out of 5 by 28.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from I expected a lot more These boots were horrible to break in, but we're comfortable after about 8 months. After about a year of riding in them, they have completely broken down around the zipper, near the heel. The sides (not the zipper itself) around the zipper (near the heel) have come apart, and are flopping around (I hide the floppy pieces under the tabs down there that snap).I was quite surprised that these boots are in the condition that they are in, given that they weren't cheap, and I didn't put them through anything extreme. I didn't purchase them from Smartpak, but wanted to share my opinion. If I were you, I'd save up a little more and go with another brand that has better craftsmanship.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sexy boots Haven't competed in the boots yet, but they fit great and I'm wearing them around the house to get the calves to stretch a teensy bit. Not sure about durability yet.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Painful! I bought these boots to replace a pair of Ariats that I'd had for a few years. I thought these looked nicer - I foxhunt and go through tall boots about every 2 seasons, I was hoping these would last longer. I have no doubt that they will last longer, because they're still painful to wear after normal break in, competing, and foxhunting for 8 weeks, 3 days a week. The zipper also broke. They are beautiful, but I don't think they're worth the pain!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice boots I've been wearing them for about 3 weeks. Breaking in nicely. They were a bit painful behind my heels at first, just while walking. They were very tightly fit to my calves and very tall ( I bought the tall slim size) but they are giving just enough to fit really nicely.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from I hate these boots I bought these boots for a horse show because my toe was broken and my show boots were pull-ons and I didn't think I would be able to get them on, so I needed zip ups and I needed them fast. I've had these for...over 6 months now and I still don't feel like they're broken in, the leather is hard, and impossible to work with, I've oiled them a thousand times, tried every trick in the book to get them to supple and it hasn't worked. They're as stiff as a board, and I am giving up on them. Luckily I can fit back in my real show boots now, so it really doesn't matter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice boots I bought these boots and then didn't wear them for a bit. I struggled to get them on and thought that I needed to lose a bit of weight first. I was wrong. I finally just made myself wear them and squeezed into them. I needed to have a bit of help to zip them up and they were not comfortable. But by the third time, the stretch panels broken in a bit and wow...they fit like custom now. They look great and are easier and easier to get on now. I'd say the breaking in time is MUCH shorter than with most boots. But yes, if you go tight....they are tough to get on and then break in but they do break in well and quickly. The pro-ankle is really nice and it really is just getting the stretch panels to give. I'm glad I didn't go to large...as I think if they had be super easy to zip up the first time, they may have been too big once broken in. Lovely boots.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful boots, but heels are too tight I loved the over all looks, comfortable foot bed, but once I put my legs in, the curvy design of the heels were too tight and digging into my heels. So, unfortunately, I had to return this pair.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous boot As a dressage rider with a slim and tall calf it has been a struggle to find the perfect boot. I must have tried on dozens that were either too wide (especially in the ankle) or to short. After trying on these boots I feel in immediate love. They fit like a glove! They need barely any breaking in!! With a 14 inch calf and 19 inch height I am delighted to have the perfect boot. They are well worth the money if you are struggling as well. They are keeping up well and I feel they will last me a long time! I have also gotten tons of complemaints!
