Rated 3 out of 5 by Brittany Very stiff
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sheri What's the difference?
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?

Rated 5 out of 5 by Asha Nice boots
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Paula G. Amazingly comfortable
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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Andrea Great buy!
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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by OHeventer Great value and quality
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.
