7. How do I care for my boots?
Rebeca suggest brushing your boots off with a stiff body brush after EVERY ride. That includes all the edges and bottom seams. Hand wash with baking soda, and line dry. We no longer recommend machine washing as it wears the velcro faster.
8. Speaking of Velcro, will I receive boots with round or square velcro tabs?
Good question. We are slowly transferring all of our boots to our Easy Grip velcro. Turns out our velcro was uncomfortably strong for most fingers, so we have added the Easy Grip tab. If you have a question about whether a specific boot will have one tab or the other, it's best to contact us before ordering.
9. Where are your products made?
We scour suppliers from all across the world and have one final manufacturer assemble all the pieces. For Example, we feel one brand makes the best stain protectant method for our boots, while our packaging and Kevlar skid patches are made by another brand. Our Velcro is proprietary to our brand and also shipped. We understand that many overnight boot companies simply email an overseas manufacturer and have a mass produced inferior boot made with their label on it, but you can rest assured that is not how we operate.
But ultimately, when it came to our search for a manufacturer, we wanted to know 1. Who is the world’s #1 manufacturer of boots and 2. Are they transparent in their practices. Are they inspected and do they show fair employment practices? We figure if our manufacturer is capable of outfitting the world’s leading manufacturers and horses, they can work for us as well. All of our products are designed in the USA and currently, 87% of our total products are made in the USA, but please understand we do not claim to be made in the USA on all of our products.
