I would like to purchase a pair of boots for Jackson. Not necessarily the ones above, but since we ride on VERY rocky terrain quite frequently and Jacks is barefoot, I think a pair would be a wise investment. Unfortunately, I know next to nothing about fitting them, pros and cons, and what brand people have had the best experiences with. Since this will probably be $150 investment, I want to make the right one! So have any of you had experience with fitting these, found a brand you swear by, etc? I'd hate to make the investment, (go out on a really long trail ride in a new park since we travel..) look down, and have a missing boot!!! Not sure the velcro up there on the boot I have pictured is all that reassuring! So, PLEASE send me your experiences and those of any folks you may know to help me in my quest!!!
