Let's talk about leather boots for a moment. Please, consider leather boots a splurge item. I am not saying that anyone should irresponsibly drop money that they cannot afford on a pair of boots, but I am saying that if you can afford it, they are worth investing in. You can see a visible difference between fake leather and real leather, and a real difference in the way the boots will wear. Buy a pair of $60 (or less) boots and you will need to buy another pair in a year or two. Buy a nice pair of leather boots (typically $100+) and they will last for years to come. I highly recommend these Franco Fortini boots. I LOVE mine! They are great! :)
What do you think? Should nice riding boots be an investment?
