There are some riding boots that are subtle and there are some that are evocative of that way of life. The Freebird Women’s Coal Riding Boot is the latter. This striking Mexican-made boot has equestrian details everywhere, even on the bottom of the sole, and its made to be picked up and admired. It has a leather construction, long shaft, 2.5 inch block heel and a lot of attitude.
The design of this boot is impressive. This is seen from the shape of the different components to the treatment of the different materials and the additional accents that finish off the look. It is easy to see why this is considered to be a riding boot with that strong equestrian vibe. There are some nice accents on the shape of the leather and the stitching that really make these boots look as though they belong in a stable. Then there is the use of hand-distressed leather to fake some age to the boots and make them even more appealing. There is also wide range of color options – from traditional tan to navy – and some come in suede.
This model also ensures that women with skinny legs are not left out of the fun.
There is one key feature on this boot that we are yet to mention, and perhaps it is a case of saving the best until last. There is a rawhide leather section at the back with a corset-style lacing system. This has two functions. Firstly, it makes these boots look even more sexy when walking away. Secondly, it helps women with narrow calves to adjust the fit. This shoes are built to run true to size, although some find them to be a little small. There are warnings that this not an over-the-knees boat, as the shaft actually measure 19.5 inches. But this may suit narrow legged women a little better. There are also women wearing them over skinny jeans to complete the look.
The great thing about this Freebird Women’s Coal Riding Boot is that it is easy for women to find precisely the model they are after and achieve a fit that shows off their legs well. The design and the lacing mean that this skinny calf boot will fit a range of women and the choice of colors and materials mean that they can really find something to suit their tastes.
