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'!).

The Raphael tall boot defines a new category of tall boots which brings a refinement of design and performance for use across all disciplines. The Raphael has a noble and graceful profile which captures the beauty of Raphael’s own masterpieces. This Tredstep innovation assimilates the dignity and calm of traditional design and surpasses it to achieve a fusion of beauty and enhanced performance. A truly graceful and harmonious boot enveloped in exquisite leather and details.

The integration of Tredstep’s Pro-Flex design allows immediate full flexion of the ankle without the need to break in the boot. A super close contoured fit is ensured by the discreetly covered rear stretch panel on the inside and top gusset. The Raphael is made from exquisite Italian aniline calfskin leather with a full grain leather lining and a specialist high performance outsole. The full length rear zip is supported by a flexible spine which helps maintain the height and protect the zip. Additional side spur rests and a zip guard are also fitted.

  • Refined design for multi disciplines
  • Tredstep Pro-Flex Design
  • Discreet covered rear stretch panel

    Tredstep Raphael Tall Boot is rated 4.2857 out of 5 by 21.
    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!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft and beautiful I bought these boots hesistantly about 2 months ago. I say hesistantly because SmartPak says they only drop about 1/2 an inch. If that were the case these boots would have been too tall for my short legs. I wrote to Tredstep and they suggested the boots would drop between an inch to an inch and a half. On that advice I bought them. I don't think the breaking in period was any more painful than other boots I've worn. They're soft, and very elegant looking. I have average sized ankles/feet and I don't find that area to be too narrow or tight. Very happy I gave these boots a try! I've only owned the boots for two months, so I don't feel that I'm really able to rate the durability (which is why I gave that 4 stars), so far they've held up great!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection These are my new show boots. If you love the comfort of half-chaps, you will love these boots. From the first ride, they were comfortable. My initial thought was that they would crush down like a pair of socks. They don't. I can wrap my legs around my mare and squeeze and they don't become ankle bracelets. I can't speak to durability because I have worn four times. When my former show boots, now everyday boots wear out, I'll be investing in another pair of Tredstep Raphael Tall Boot.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from poor hardware loved the feel and fit of these boots BUT never even rode in them before the zipper broke.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gorgeous Boot These are really beautiful boots and look more expensive than they are. These look more streamlined and appear to have slightly nicer leather than DaVinci's. Love the square toe and was surprised how nice it looked not to have the laces. Sadly am having trouble getting the right fit. With a 14.5" calf I found the med width too wide and reg width too tight. Could go from size 39 to 40 to get a smidge more width, but size 40 adds a bit too much height for me. Also the footbed feels rather hard, so one wouldn't want to walk around in these all day. Still all in all a lovely boot if they fit!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from So Mad I order these boots in the size I measured. When they arrived they were way to small, and I could barely zip them past my ankle. I ordered the next size up, and those were to small as well. This time reaching only my lower calf. Then I ordered the largest calf size they make, and still couldn't get them zipped all the way. The last pair made it to about mid calf. Then I realized that if I had zipped them all the way up, the upper calf would have been way to big. I don't know anyone with legs shaped that way. Its taken about three months to realize that I can not have these boots. Thats three months that I could have spent breaking in different boots.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Boots So far so good I have worn these boots 6 times and each time they get a little more comfortable. The workmanship and leather are top quality. I'm very tall and these are the first off the shelve boots that are actually tall enough in fact they are a little bit too tall which causes some discomfort but I'm sure they will drop appropriately. Would much prefer a boot that is too tall (hate short boots). The foot of the boot is true to size and love the tapered ankle.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great crossover boots I was worried that the height would be a little bit short even on the talls but it's right where it should be now. As long as the boots don't drop much, they fit great. I too had the dilemma of whether to go with the 14" calf or 15" calf size. Ended up sticking with the 15" even though there's extra room toward the top of the boot. Again, as long as the boots don't drop or stretch out considerably, they're streamlined enough that I'd rather have the extra room than risk going too small. In the tredstep half chaps, I wear a 14" calf but I believe those have more give than these. If you're in between sizes, you might want to consider trying both calf sizes just to be sure.
