In all that time, I have not owned a pair of tall boots.
I like tall boots. I like tidy riding attire (sans coat--that's just asinine). At first, I was heavy and needed to buy special wide calf boots, so I put it off. I lost the weight and can now wear most standard sizes, but I really prefer brown to black. I can't afford custom, so I put it off.
Currently, I can't afford boots at all, but I think next year might be my time to splurge. If I can't take Tredsteps into making brown boots (I am trying!!), I might have to give it up and go black.
No sense doing that quietly. I'm considering these:
It's for a variety of reasons, not the least of which is that I like the steps towards technological relevance that the equine industry is finally taking and I'd like to support it.
That said, the enemy of progress is tradition and I do enjoy a pretty, traditional field boots.
I'd love to just skip down to the local tack store and try a pair on, but that's not so much an option for me.

I haven't consulted Cuna for an opinion yet and I'm sure he doesn't care as long as the holiday snowflake polos don't make a reappearance on his legs.
Thoughts? Anyone else have a favorite boot? Have you tried the Volants on? Share!
