Let me start by saying that I've been wearing these boots to death so apologies that they don't look the cleanest! They are without doubt the comfiest boots I have ever worn and I've fully tested them while hacking out on my young cob, Marley.
I've had these for a few months now, but to give a fair review I've had to wear them a lot. I bought these boots after the disappointment of never fitting into off the shelf tall boots. These are the only boots I've seen that are wide enough on the calf, but also available in three heights to suit any rider.
In the photos below I'm wearing the Fuller Fillies Field Boots in standard height with extra wide calf. The calf is amazingly comfy, no more losing circulation while riding! The foot size is very accurate but also has enough room for thick winter socks. The stretch panel and laces allow you to truly flex and bend as you ride, and the standard height is perfect for my legs.
These boots are so comfy to ride in, they are supportive without being restrictive and I've only had to clean and condition them once so far! They are so durable and have survived being taken through bushes and trees out hacking without a scratch on them. They've also endured trudging through muddy gateways and through a large puddle that Marley refused to go through on a hack.
As you can see in the photos, they flex well with my ankle without compromising on support. The photos were taken on an impromptu ride to test my new saddle, so no judgement on my muddy pony please :D
If you're considering a pair of long boots, whether you're a first time buyer of tall boots or you're looking to replace the pair you've had for years, I would fully reccomend Fuller Fillies! With fabulous customer service and hassle free returns there's no wonder that they're the first choice for so many people that can get into the narrow sized boots available in all tack shops.
I hope that both this and my first impressions blog are helpful to anyone taking the plunge into buying a pair of y'all boots. If you have any questions please leave a comment down below :)
