Country boots are not only real multi-taskers in the stable, they have a long history and are also iconic footwear in everyday life. Regardless of whether they have a wide or narrow, short or long shaft, high-quality country boots for men and women belong in every shoe cupboard. Whether they have a classic slip-on cut, a zip fastening or a lace-up design, country boots are cool, super-practical and add a special touch to any outfit.
High-quality country boots are among the all-rounders among footwear. They fulfil several functions at once. The perfect country boot with its high and usually tight-fitting shaft offers good all-round protection for your calves and ankles. It gives you a firm hold, but at the same time is supple and comfortable to wear. A low heel provides the necessary grip even on muddy ground, which makes the boots ideal for a ride. With the country boots you can't slip through the stirrup and get caught up. Besides the classic country boot with a western look, they are available in many different designs. Exciting details such as stitching, metal buckles and eye-catching lacing make each boot unique in its look.
Country boots are characterised by the fact that they are particularly robust and hard-wearing. They are usually made of high-quality leather. Ideally, your country boots should be waterproof. However, water-repellent country boots are also very popular because they are especially breathable. A thick rubber sole cushions your movements well. The distinctive structure of the sole makes winter country boots particularly resistant to slippery and wet conditions. The Ariat Country Boots, on the other hand, rely on crepe soles. The innovative Pro Crepe outsole from Ariat is a rubber compound that is slip-resistant, particularly light and yet very hard-wearing. In the cold season you should go for winter country boots. Thermal boots are especially insulated and lined with cosy synthetic or real sheepskin.
Country boots are therefore real all-rounders. Discover the wide variety of high quality country boots that complement your style. Whether Ariat, Harry's Horse or Mountain Horse, you'll find them all at Horze.
Despite the wide range of uses for country boots, you should still choose the appropriate field boots or dressage boots for active jumping and dressage riding. A good alternative to riding boots is the combination of Jodhpur boots and half chaps.
