im considering buying a pair of riding boots but im not sure i can justify the expense. im currently using my 'redback' (aus made, leather, lace-up, ankle high) work boots and when compared to most low end riding boots they seem on par if not superior. that is they seem to have thicker leather, better soles, fewer seams, decent ankle support etc. anyone got any experience/thoughts? also iv been looking at those diadora touring boots on ebay. has anyone used these? thanks, brody.
