Product Review: Dublin Paramount Side Zip Paddock Boots

After using my Dublin Elevation Paddock boots for farm and sheep work in the warmer, drier weather, I had been on the lookout for a smarter, more technical pair of boots so I could ride in thus saving the long boots I currently use for everyday riding and yard work for training and competitions instead. I came across the Dublin Paramount Side Zip Boots via an advert on the internet and it grabbed my attention as these looked so stylish! These boots turned up and I was not disappointed, and the quality is so much better than I could ever imagine. I love the look of laces on the front of any boot and the Side Zip style is no different with having laces as well as a double side zip for easy on and off and versatility. The Dublin Paramount Side Zip paddock boots has a sleek, slim, square toe (another feature I absolutely love and look for when buying short or long boots). The footbed is incredibly comfy, providing shock absorption of the heel and sweat control – ideal for those long days and hours spent on your feet at the stables! The sole provides good grip and is flexible to allow for foot movement and break through, great for when working on the yard or riding and keeping your feet stable in the stirrups. The boot is made up of Argentinian full grain leather which is soft and supple and requires no breaking in (I’m sure many of you wince at the thought and pain of wearing and having to break in brand new leather boots!). These boots clean up beautifully after being caked in dirt and mud and look like brand new again – perfect for somebody like me who isn’t a fan of cleaning! Admittedly, as these are brand new styles having only just hit the stores very recently, I haven’t yet been able to test out the durability of these boots but out of all my Dublin boots I own, theya re all really hard wearing and durable and I’m sure these boots are no exception. I would definitely recommend anyone to purchase a pair of these Paramount boots and if the Side Zip & laces isn’t your style, there is a front zip version too and these boots come in Black and Brown so plenty of choice there! I don’t expect these to be hanging around for very long so go and buy them while they are in stock!
