Selecting the Right Pioneer Dress Boot

January 19, 2018

Selecting the right Pioneer dress boot is made easy by the variety of styles and options that are offered to fit any of your specific needs.  Pioneer tall dress boots come in a variety of different styles, colors, and finishes.  If you can’t find what you are looking for, Pioneer also offers fully custom dress boots, so your imagination is the limit!  When selecting dress boots, what models to pick largely depends on the rider’s personal preferences. Below are a few different styles of Pioneer dress boots to choose from.

For instance, the Ade Pioneer Dress Boot tends to be favored by eventers because it features an Italian grained leather that is more scratch resistant, a fully-sewn rubber sole with heel shock-point that protects the boot from the elements, and a full length elastic gussets that provides superior comfort and fit.  The Ade Dress Boot is also a very popular model for dressage riders seeking an everyday schooling boot, as well as a boot that can be worn for schooling shows, as it combines durability with enough style of be ring-worthy.

Riders looking for a dress boot that can be easily worn in and out of the competition ring, the Atena Pioneer Dress Boot is an excellent choice.  First, the Atena Pioneer Dress Boot is one of the most comfortable models available.  The Atena Dress Boot is designed to provide the close contact fit of a custom boot, without the custom price.  This elegant dress boot has an extremely supple calf that is comprised of a stretch Italian calfskin leather, as well as smooth and more durable leather on the inside. The slender ribbed outsole furthers the refined look of this boot, and the patent leather accent on its high cap completes the custom look and fit of this elegant dress boot.

Riders that are seeking a classic, yet unique look, that incorporates the comfort fit of the Atena Dress Boot will love the Efesto Pioneer Dress Boot. The stunning Efesto Dress Boot is a masterful integration of quality, style, and fit.  It features a printed leather inner panel, and a stretch leather panel for optimal fit and comfort.  This well-balanced boot provides classic elegance together with a fit that feels custom.

From the dressage line, Pioneer offer several models that will satisfy some of the most exacting riders.  One boot that stands out for its incredible versatility is the Poseidone Pioneer Dress Boot.  The Poseidone Dress Boot was designed for the horse rider seeking a glamorous look while performing at a top level. The Poseidone comes in 5 patent leather colors, and features a fabric back panel that can accommodate a large number of color finishes.  This dress boot can be customized in terms of colors and finishes in so many ways, that you can end up with a truly unique looking boot.  I am partial to the Poseidone Dress Boot having won my USDF Bronze Medal wearing them, and hearing compliments as I passed the judges booth, regarding my gorgeous boots!

The Pioneer Details Line is by far the most popular and features so many favorite dress boots that it is difficult to talk about just one.  The most classic and one of the most “customizable” is the Era Pioneer Dress Boot.  The Era Dress Boot is meticulously crafted from premium, hand-selected Italian calfskin leather, and marries cutting edge design with handmade luxury.  The Era Dress Boot has just enough detailing at the cap to make a statement, while remaining classically elegant.  This is the perfect dress boot to match with your competition jacket, with 12 different color combinations, the Era can be the perfect addition to your competition look.

The Pioneer Luxury Line is the latest line launched by Pioneer, and features a number of remarkable dress boots.  One of my favorites by far, and the ultimate choice in “Personalization” is the Emera Pioneer Dress Boot.  If you have ever dreamed of a dress boot that was uniquely designed for you, something you wouldn’t see on anyone else, but without the high price tag of a custom boot, then the Emera Dress Boot is for you.  The Emera Dress Boot gives you the option of designing your own boot by adding any picture, design, or print of your choice!  Want to feature a picture of your beloved horse, flag, or any other print or picture on your dress boot? Making it uniquely yours?  Pioneer can do that with the Emera!  This stunning dress boot is not only the ultimate choice in boot personalization, it is also handcrafted from the finest Italian calfskin leather for ultimate comfort and durability.

With so many choices being offered by Pioneer, finding the perfect dress boot should be fun and easy.  Happy shopping!

MeasureGuide

To measure your leg for a Tall Riding Boot follow these 3 easy steps:

Step 1 - Foot Size

Select your Standard UK/European or U.S. foot size. All boots are Unisex sized.

In case you normally wear half a size, we recommend going up towards the nearest full size for an optimal fit.

Step 2 – Mouth Size

In a standing position with feet flat to the floor, leg straight, have a friend measure the circumference right under your knee, at the center of the knee crease. Remember to wear your normal riding legwear (pants and socks) and measure both legs.

Step 3 - Calf Size

In a standing position with feet flat to the floor, have a friend measure the widest part of your calf. Remember to wear your normal riding legwear (pants and socks) and measure both calf muscles as the measurements may differ.

Not all calf widths are available for each boot model. Please check the boot model against the Pioneer Size Chart for an accurate fit.

For boots that feature an elastic band, there is a 1-2 cm calf width variation. When measuring for those models, take 1cm off the calf measurement for an optimal fit.

Step 4 - Height Size

In a standing position, with bare feet and a slightly bent knee whilst keeping your feet flat to the floor, have a friend measure from the bottom of your heel to the center of the knee crease.

Note (Check Model Numbers):  Not all calf widths and heights are available for each boot model. Please check the boot model against Pioneer Size Chart for an accurate fit.
