Measuring for DeNiro tall boots
Each tall boot manufacturer has different techniques for measuring, so please carefully read the instructions below when measuring for DeNiro long boots.
Measuring tips to get the best fit:
- wear your usual breeches and socks
- don't measure first thing in the morning as your legs often swell during the day
- compare your tape measure against a ruler to check accuracy as occasionally they stretch over time
STEP 1 - SHOE SIZE
DeNiro boots are made in European shoe sizes. If you are unsure of your European shoe size, view the shoe size conversion chart. Alternatively, we are more than happy to measure along outside soles if you would like to compare your current boots.
STEP 2 - WIDTH
In a standing position with your feet flat to the floor, have a friend or family member measure the widest part of your calf. Make sure to measure both calves as the measurements may differ.
STEP 3 - HEIGHT
Have your friend or family member measure from the crease at the back of the knee directly down to where your heel reaches the floor. We find it best to bend your leg at the angle that you ride with as people that ride with a short stirrup prefer a shorter boot.
As you break your new boots in, the overall height of the boot will decrease slightly. This expected drop is about 1-2cm. Modern boots have a bow on the outside of the boot so it is not noticeable if your boots drop below the crease of your knee. If your boots are too tall when they arrive, you can purchase heel lifts to help alleviate rubbing at the back of your knee until they drop.
Once you have your shoe size, width and height measurements, use the DeNiro size chart below to find your size.
Can’t find your size?
If your shoe size, width and height measurements don’t match up with the options, DeNiro boots are able to be custom made to your measurements for an additional cost.
Made to measure with additional measurements is also available if you have had surgery or an injury to your feet or lower legs that has caused a change of shape, or you prefer a fully customised fit.
At Ashbree Saddlery we understand that buying DeNiro boots is an investment and we are always happy to help :)
