Yeah, Xelement makes some serious BA boots. I'm going to get a pair once I finish upgrading everything.

My wife pointed these out to me at Shoe Carnival but unfortunately they are three sizes too small for me

http://polo-boots.blogspot.com/2009/12/polo-ralph-lauren-men-conquest-hi-ii.html

There are two styles, the ones shown in the link above and an alternate style that has the strap but has laces in place of the zippers.

Do they even make xelements in my size?  I'm a women's 7 wide (US).  Right now I'm using Ariat paddock boots that are very comfortable, but I'm looking for something knee-height with no laces that comes in wide sizes.  Any suggestions on where to look are appreciated.

There are tons of womens boots at any retail stores. Usually what I've seen is they don't have laces, either. I wish they made as many choices for mens boots as womens...

But they don't come in wide sizes...so I'm just about as limited as the men.   :-[

Riya,

Since you are already using Ariats for your boots, have you thought of traditional English riding boots?  I found these at State Line Tack and they come in lots of sizes and widths.  They are also surprisingly cheap for riding boots too ;).

Have you tried looking on Ebay or Overstock.com?? I get most of my shoes from Ebay...and over seas. Due the the fact that I'm a size 5 in womens. lol

I've tried ebay, but not overstock.  I'll check that out.

WOW.  That's the cheapest I have EVER seen a riding boot!  $60 is a steal.  I'll have to see what their return policy is in case they don't quite fit right, but those are a definite possibility for a birthday gift. Thanks for the llink!

I can vouch for that brand being pretty comfy too. Two of my pairs of riding boots have been devon-aires; I actually find my Ariats to be less comfy. (Incidentally, all purchased from State Line as well.) XD
