Product Review: Dublin Rapture Zip Boots

Whoever stands on their feet all day can appreciate good footwear with a comfortable footbed.

Meike is an event rider from Germany who is a part of the WeatherBeeta family. Spending all day on her feet, Meike needs a pair of boots that are comfortable, high performance and hard wearing enough to deal with the day to day wear and tear of the yard. She decided to put the Dublin Rapture Zip Paddock Boots to the test... 

"Boots can be quite tricky to find the right pair! Having a footbed doesn’t always mean support, and every shape is slightly different.

As I needed new boots, quite urgently, I thought I would try the Dublin Rapture Zip Paddock Boots. Being a size 7, very often I have had problems with the boots never fitting quite right. They are often a bit too big, too small, too wide and so on. Fortunately, the Dublin Rapture fit my foot perfectly. The rounded toe is very comfortable for my slightly wider foot and even my relatively flat foot, feels very well supported by the RCS Memory Foam Footbed.

I have been wearing them every day for the last three weeks in the most awful weather and they are coping very well. No matter if it is mud, muck or sand, they are easy to clean and with a little bit of leather care they immediately look like new. Even at the end of the day, my feet feel completely happy in the boots and could continue to walk for hours.

The features of this reasonably new style speak for themselves: European full grain leather. Leather and breathable mesh lining. Pin punch designed heel and toe cap. Dublin branded spur rest. YKK Dublin branded quality zipper. Featuring a luxuriously comfortable RCS memory foam PU footbed for ultimate comfort. High arch and in-built shank designed outsole for improved lateral stability. Durable rubber outsole with flex point grooves."
