#1.Horze Rover Dressage Tall Boots
When it comes to the best dressage boots, we highly recommend the Horze Rover Dressage Tall Boots. These are tall dressage boots that come in at a very affordable price. While they don’t necessarily have the best quality and are made of premium leather, for most people, it is not a requirement. We like how these synthetic leather boots have plenty of stretches and are not stiff.
These boots also have the look and feel of real leather and are as close to real leather without paying absorbent prices. Of course, the durability will be worse, but at least it’ll be cheaper than real leather. Finally, we really like the fact that there’s a soft rubber sole that gives you extended comfort for long-term usage. There’s also a nice back zip that makes it easy to take the shoe on and off.
#2.Hispar Women Dressage Boots
Another pretty good option when it comes to the best dressage boots is the Hispar Women Dressage Boots. This shoe is made for those who can pay a bit more for their dressage shoes. The Hispar is made of premier genuine leather with a full leather-lined moisture-wicking sock liner. Overall, the look and feel are clearly on another level from the Horze Rover boots.
In terms of durability, we find that this boot can definitely take a beating in the dirt. It has a nice and sturdy rubber out-sole that can take abrasions like none other. It also has an anti-skid tread design. Another thing to note is that the shaft has a slight forward angle to accommodate the riding leg position, which greatly extends its durability. The only annoying thing is there’s no back zipper.
#3.Hispar Mens Dressage Boots
Hispar is clearly a great brand that we would recommend to anyone who is serious about getting a proper dressage boot. They also make a men’s version which will conform to larger and wider feet. In terms of material, it is made of the same quality materials as the Hispar Women’s Dressage Boots. The leather is 100% genuine and it feels really soft. Of course, you’ll need to break it in as well.
All in all, we think the build quality is pretty decent. And it looks like they even recently improved on the soles and heels, making them more comfortable and a lot more durable for you. While these boots are still not top-shelf leather dressage boots, we consider them entry-level pro-grade boots that are really good value for your money.
#4.Equistar – Ladies’ Field Boot All-Weather
The Equistar Ladies Field Boot All Weather makes our top 5 list because it presents a good balance of quality, durability, comfort, and price. These conform to your legs without adding to any discomfort. The standout feature is the fact that it is designed with a very narrow profile in the leg. They properly taper down your calves without squeezing on them or being uncomfortable.
Another thing that makes this boot really stand out is that the shaft of the boot is cushion lined with Dry-Tex. This gives basically really helps control moisture and sweating inside the boot. In terms of quality, the boot is alright but nothing to brag about. The leather quality is definitely passable and the feel is nice and soft, but definitely requires a proper break-in.
#5.TuffRider Ladies Belmont Dress Boots
Last on our list, we have the TuffRider Ladies Belmont Dress Boots. These boots have a snap closure, Spanish top, a back zipper as well as an electric gusset. They are also quite stylish in our opinion. We really like these boots because they are just incredibly comfortable to wear all day. It has a memory foam footbed that makes it very soft to stand in them and walk around.
These boots surprised us in terms of quality as well. It is definitely on the cheaper end of real leather boots, but they certainly feel nice to the touch. Also, the back zipper is a really cool addition. Overall, the leather is quite soft and these boots can be used for both practice and competitions. They not only feel great but look great as well in our opinion.
