Crafted from very supple soft-touch premium cowhide with a cuff lining of genuine pigskin leather and moisture wicking lower shaft. The new Flex system pattern design affords the rider the ultimate in movement with full flexion of the ankle area immediately with first wearing. Added stretch panels on the inside of back zipper add supportive comfort and easy fitting at the calf. Twin side spur rests, classic toe cap styling, and elegant ripple sole add classic detailing at a remarkable price.
Love my Ovation boots! They fit me like custom and have held up great for the year that I have had them so far. I noticed comments about zippers, so I pay special attention to make sure that the zipper stays clean and lubed. I haven’t had an issue so I guess what I’m doing works. I ride 4x per week and with a good wipe down and polish, my boots look good enough for the show ring.
Boots are very comfortable, and do not require any break in time. I too am very disappointed with the quality of the zipper as it broke just after a few times of wearing them in the show ring.
I purchased these boots and showed three classes in them, I had the worst blisters of my life on the backs of my ankles I could barley walk let alone put these back on and continue showing the remainder of the weekend. I then attempted to break these boots in by wearing thick or multiple pairs of socks and bandaids on my heels but again recieved HORRIBLE blisters. I stored my boots for the winter in a clean boot bag only to find that the button had falen off at some point. I really enjoy the look of these boots and they fit me great but for some reason the heels and the quality are lacking. I would not recommend these boots as they are lovingly refered to the devils footwear by my peers at the barn .

These boots are very comfortable and break in very well! Durable for only the once a week rider. I ride 5-6 days a week and the Sport Flex didn’t hold up as long as I hoped. If you are limited getting out to the barn, these boots are for you!
Great for comfort
Not so great for durability
