Today we will take a look at another selection, this time of riding boots, where we will go through 8 beautiful designs that will test your self-restraint. Trust us, you will want to buy some of these designs, they’re that good!
For those that love learning more about why some clothes and shoe styles are called a certain way, keep on reading.
Riding boots were originally designed for horse riders, obviously. The high shaft, low heel and slightly arched foot were made for safety and practicality.
This way, if the worst was to happen and the rider would need to get off the horse in an instant, the boots would be of help by not getting caught in the stirrup.
Then riding boots became a fashion trend and even today they are still a favorite among women. This type of boot is arguably one of the most comfortable designs and they also make great winter boots, due to covering the leg from the knee down.
Of course, overtime the designs evolved much more and now you can find them in a variety of heels, toes and colors.
We always try to provide you with different designs so at least one of them might fit your style and it’s not different for today’s selection.

Dream Pairs Knee High Riding Boots

Dream Pairs‘ first boots come in a beautiful cut and style as the rounded toe and wide shaft give them a relaxed and very chic look.
They are made of synthetic leather on the outside and lined with faux fur on the inside, which will keep your legs warm and cozy.
The rubber outsole is ridged so you won’t be slipping when out and about in bad weather. It is also quite sturdy and not flexible, which provides great support and makes for a much more comfortable wear.
The heel measures about 1.25″ (~3.2 cm), while the shaft is 17.5″ (~44.5 cm). The toe is round and along with the wide shaft, these boots are perfect for those of you with wide calves.

Dream Pairs Koson Knee High Riding Boots
The third and last design by Dream Pairs also measures about the same as the previous designs in height of the shaft and heel.
