Buying Equestrian Boots

By JulieD

Equestrian footwear hasn't changed much in the last century. Made from heavy leather, equestrian boots posed a challenge just to get them on. 

Changes, however, are on the way, with the introduction of a new boot by Nike not only designed to be easier to get on and off but more comfortable as well.

The new Nike boot has a curved zipper that opens the entire boot so that riders can get there foot in and out more easily. This boot's updated high-tech features seem to be the answer to many equestrians' prayers, but it is going to cost consumers $450. If you're a serious equestrian, this boot seems to be worth it compared to the old traditional, hot, heavy leather boots that are so difficult to get on and off that it often requires the assistance of a second person.
