This boot is very stiff and is narrow for me. But it felt like it'd be too big if I ordered a larger size.

They offer three boots that look very similar to me; this boot, the Reserve zip and the Assurance zip. What is the difference other than price?

I just got these today, and tried them on. They fit perfectly (after I bought them, I saw some reviews that said they come small, so I was worried that they wouldn't fit).
They were a little stiff (which I think is common for leather), but I oiled them and now they're nice and soft.
I think that because of the way the spur rest is shaped, they will be more comfortable than my older paddock boots to wear for a few hours.
I can't say anything about their durability yet, though.

I just bought my third pair of these boots - they last for years but I get a new pair now and then. Yesterday I wore the new pair for the first time but wound up having to get off my horse and walk for two miles (due to my leg cramp after a riding lesson). They were perfectly comfortable - no blisters - I might as well have been in my running shoes! Incredible!

I bought these boots about 2 years ago, and I mainly got them because they were inexpensive and looked nice. BUT I found that they are extremely durable. I worked at the barn 6 days a week, about 10-12 hours a day, and I wore these the entire time. They formed to my feet beautifully and held up to all I put them through. I absolutely recommend them to anyone looking for an inexpensive, durable, comfortable boot.

A great boot. I LOVE THE TOE STITCHING! Elegant, stylish and comfortable, too. Very nice boot, jumping and flatwork compatible, definitely. I also have a horse who steps on my boots a lot, and they've held up after i've popped them back from the hoofmark. Nice color, too. Nice rich brown.

I have had two pairs of the Dublin RCS Advance paddock boot over the last two years, and am about to buy my 3rd pair. I am extremely hard on boots, I ride 1-2 horses a day, eventing, jumping, hacking, trail riding, flatting, lunging, bathing etc and am out and about all over the farm and in the stalls, in summer and winter. I put them on at home drive to the stable and then back again, they are always comfortable, I literally wear them out, the leather stretches with time as all leather does and I feel one pair a year is more than reasonable. Mine get wet and my feet usually stay dry. Mine haven't cracked despite pretty much no care after the first couple of months. I always start out cleaning and conditioning them when I clean tack, but as they get more scuffed and scratched with abuse I usually stop. I have done two cross country trips with horses from Cali to Florida and Florida to Washington state and I wore them the whole drive, super comfy. I would pay more if I had too, but I don't.
The only things I would change is that they feel thin on the bottoms and I feel the gravel more as they wear out, I would make the sole a touch thicker, also once they get scuffed up, they don't look so hot anymore, not what I'm care about when I'm at the barn, since I have nice boots to show in, but I feel grungy running errands on the way to the barn. I could easily wear another pair of shoes, but I am often pressed for time.
Great shoe for the money
I would love to know how they compare to the Dublin Assurance

These boots work great for me! I have jumped in them and done flatwork as well. They are very comfy and don't take very long to break in.

Im always leary to buy footwear without being able to try them on. This just proved me wrong. I LOVE these boots. They are super comfy and look great. I even wear them when Im not riding. : fyi.. my feet are kinda duck shaped... so if you need room for your toes...this is the boot!

Ive had these boots for a year now. Their great for just walking aruond the barn or mucking out stalls. They are hard to clean though. I approve of these boots, especially with their sturdiness. The price is high, and their kinda worth it. : I spent all summer running around in the muddy arena, teaching camp, and these boots held up GREAT with my half chaps! Word to the wise dont plan on buying these if you dont have tall socks or zocks. I wore them sockless a few times, and they rub your feet so much. Their super uncomfortable. Also, rearely, hurts when your putting your heels down. But I still love these boots!

I am really happy with these boots. Theyre comfortable, durable, and have a great traditional look. I was a little worried about buying riding boots with zippers, but after 4 months of use I havent had any problems with mine so far. I highly recommend these boots to anyone.

These boots are AMAZING. Theyve lasted me about 3 years of hard barn work, and riding, and they look like a normal pair would after a month! I can use them comfortably in Winter or Summer... I would recomend these to anyone!
