Friday’s Fashion – Half chaps that you’ll fall in love with

Break free from your tall boots and sport some paddock boots and half chaps this summer. You’ll be more comfortable in half chaps plus it will save a bit of wear and tear on your tall boots. Whether you’re looking for an affordable pair of half chaps you can order today or a pricier custom pair that’ll last you forever, check out these quality and stylish half chaps:

Perri’s Leather Professional Half Chaps: These chaps are so comfy you’ll never want to put your tall boots on again. They are crafted from soft, premium quality calfskin and feature a reinforced inner leg and elasticized leather panel, for the optimal fit. Plus they zip easily from the top down and have snaps at the top and bottom to keep the zipper secure while an elastic foot band keeps them securely in place during your ride. Choose between classical black leather or a more edgy brown leather.

Deniro Boots makes a wide variety of custom half chaps (gaiters) but these burgundy leather ones are hands my favourite. Treat yourself like the superstar you are and splurge a little on a pair of custom Italian half chaps.

DerDau Half Chaps: Be the talk of the stables with a custom pair of DerDau Half Chaps. All of their half chaps are handmade in the United States and custom made to the exact standards specified by each customer.

Of course you’ll need to buy the ostrich front zip jodhpur boots to match them! Check out some of their other half chap options and share which pair are your favourite.
