If you follow me on instagram (@TofinoDuLys), you would know that after many long months of searching for the perfect riding boots, I had ordered a pair of custom made Franco Tucci riding boots from Cavalos UAE.
The model I ordered is the Rossini in its original dark brown colour. There are however, a number of colours, variation of styles and personalizations you can choose from.
As my boots were made to measure, when they arrived I had expected them to fit like a second skin. However, it was rather loose, especially just above the ankle.
Luckily, the ladies down at Cavalos were extremely helpful in assisting me on getting my boot order corrected and sent them back to Italy for tightening. I received them in no time and in perfect shape!
It is always difficult with custom made things to perfect the size, therefore, I am really glad that things did turn out well.
My first ride in these boots were less painful than i had expected. This is the first time i ever own long riding boots. And i always hear and read that the “breaking in” process is horrible, however, my experience was not too bad. I did not get any blisters thankfully and I was still able to walk with them. I did feel tight pressure on my calf if i wore them for too long which is absolutely normal, as they do fit like a second skin!
It has been a week now and the zippers close fully with just a minor struggle. These boots are tough and very durable, which is why i chose them.
They do also come with insoles incase they get wide at the foot and with your name written on the inside of the boot so no one can say it’s anybody’s but yours!
It is too soon to set some pros and cons, nonetheless, i will say that i absolutely adore my boots and i would definitely purchase another pair in the future
(hopefully the Monica model ❤ )
Update: This is how they fit now after nearly one month’s use
