Chances are that you have used the terms men’s riding boots and tall boots interchangeably without even thinking about it. However, did you know that the two have huge differences between them?
The biggest difference is that men’s riding boots are made for riding a horse. When shopping at Sheplers, you need to make sure you know the difference between the two in order to pick out the perfect pair of boots.
The main differences between men’s riding boots apart from tall boots are:
Soles. The soles of men’s riding boots are specially made so neither the rider or the horse are injured. Specifically, the sole is made with a very light tread, so that the rider can slip their foot out of the stirrup if they accidentally fall of their horse.
Zippers. At the end of the day, tall boots have zippers and men’s riding boots don’t. If they did have zippers, then it is placed on the back of the boot so that it does not rub against the horse.
Heels. Men’s riding boots at Sheplers have a small heel. This prevents the foot from slipping through the stirrup and causing a potential serious accident.
