I purchased these for my significant other because hers just wore out and she was unable to find a new pair that fit her legs correctly. The European size 42 I purchased are a perfect fit, and the elasticized gusset makes it so easy to pull on and take off the boots even with her muscular calves. She's so happy that she has a new pair of rubber boots that actually fit. She says the bots are very comfortable in the saddle, too. The only little downside we can find is that the spur rest is too high up for dressage schooling, but it is no problem securing the spur lower on the boot. These are really nice rubber boots at a good price.
