I fell in love and ended up purchasing mine last year. Only bad thing was they did not come at a cheap price, and they were really hard to find. The brown ones were my first choice, but I could NOT find them ANYWHERE in my size (9). So, I ended up settling on the black ones and I found them at Barneys New York.
I know $1295 is a lot to spend on, well, anything. But like I said, I know these boots will be a staple in my wardrobe for many years to come (if I'm blessed to live that long!), and I take really good care of my stuff. Paired with my Wal-Mart leggings and Target jeans, these boots will be smokin, lol! Keep in mind there are cheaper alternatives out there, but as long as they are a good quality leather riding boot, it is definitely an investment you won't regret making! Thanks for stopping by and let me know your favorite brand of riding boots!
