I’ve ridden in a pair of Ovation Flex Sport field boots for about 2-3 years, until the leather on the insides of the calves has all but been worn through. I would have continued to ride in them longer, but the zipper on the left boot now splits apart at the bottom when zipped up.
I’m looking for a quality pair of boots that will hopefully last as long as or longer than my current ones. My poor, college student budget won’t allow me to go much beyond the $300 mark. I don’t need fancy, just durable and comfortable. Also, question - do you lower level eventers ride in dress or field boots? I’ve seen both, but wondered if there’s a more “correct” boot to wear.
I’m considering buying Tredsteps - but am concerned about the reports of zippers breaking (that’s the last thing I need right now) and sizing being crazy small.
