Why would you buy something that you don't like, you ask. That is a great question. A question which my friend and my mother and everyone else, including the tack store clerk asked me right as I pulled out the VISA.
In truth, the boots I liked were pretty much the Ariat version of the Justin boots that I have, which my friend also pointed out to me. Even I could see the stupidity in buying a brand new version of the same boots I already have.
So I bought the other kind.
Do not get me wrong. They are a lovely boot. Much comfier for the foot. Better grip. Better fit than the ones I have. The colour and design is even quite nice. I bet they are a dream to ride in.
But god that toe. That square toe.
|I try. But it is hard.|
|At least the design is nice|
And I kind of want a new Western saddle before I ride in them, so that is a bit of a hiccup. Both financially and practically since, you know, I ride dressage now. Do not judge me. :P
