Rated 5 out of 5 by Fiend Still love 'em
I already wrote a review a few months ago but I have an UPDATE, because I've become impressed with these boots all over again. So much so that I feel it warrants a 2nd review. As previously stated, I bought my Saxons 5 years ago (in 2008). I'm an archaeologist and my hiking boots bit the dust so I needed to find some kind of backup until I could get new ones. Of course, I had my Saxon Equileather boots handy, so I figured I'd use those, and I figured that if they got ruined it wouldn't be a huge deal because I've already gotten MORE than enough use out of them. So let me tell you, these boots did their job for a few full days of hard work hiking, standing, squatting, and kneeling all day, as well as walking in mud, sand, marsh, you name it. These boots are still holding up. They're only now starting to show some signs of wear on the outside corner by the pinkie toe... but considering the hell I've put these puppies through, that is NOTHING for a boot that only costs about $35. Even after all this, I'm still going to be able to get quite a bit of use out of them before I need to buy a new pair of boots.

These are great boots and I love riding in them. They don't need to be broken in all that much and I like how sturdy everything is. I only wear these riding because I don't want to use them for more than they need to be used for. I have a separate pair of old slip-on Vans that I keep at the barn and then I just quickly change shoes before tacking-up. A wipe them down after every ride keeps them really nice looking, as well

I wore these after i got them the next day, and they were stiff. But i love breaking in new boots and chaps because im selfish and want it to fit to my shape only :)They arent waterproof where the laces start (personal experience...) but below that and around they are.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fiend BEST boots
These are seriously the only boots I will ever buy, ever. I bought mine in 2008, and after five years of heavy use they are still holding up SPLENDIDLY. They are only a little scuffed, which is VERY impressive considering how much use they've gotten!! The boots outlived the bootlaces and I only just recently had to replace them. They are comfortable and true to size. I will only buy these from now on, because back when I used to buy leather paddock boots, they would get destroyed after only 1-2 years of heavy use.
You will not regret buying these!!

I have these in lace and in zip and love them both! But the only thing is I feel like the lace boots pinch the top of my feet. Overall a great product.

This is my second time ordering the Saxon ladies Paddock boot. I wouldn't have had to order a second time if I hadn't lost the last pair - they've held up great!

A lot better than I was expecting, but for the price I had to try. I've been wearing these 2-4 times a week and around the pasture and they're holding up really well. I find mine to fit well and be quite comfortable. I'm not showing in them, just needed a decent every day boot and they do that. They aren't the best quality but for the price I'm happy with them!
