I’ve been wearing my new Quebec yard boots for about a month now and I have been really pleased with them!

What I look for in a yard boot

I was recently on the hunt for some new yard boots. I always buy country boots. I want something long enough to be taller than the mud we get in winter. I also like to have lined leather boots. They are the only thing I find keeps the chillblaines away. But having wide calves, I always find it hard to find country boots what fit. I can squeeze into some wide leg ones. But I can’t wear thicker trousers in the winter and I find they really wrinkle quickly due to not fitting as well as they should. Someone suggested I looked at the Quebec boots.

Quebec: the perfect boot for wide legs!

The Quebec boot from Bareback Footwear is perfect for my wide legs! It is only a mid calf boot. For me this means it stops before the widest part of my leg but still covers above my ankle for when it’s really muddy. It also has a buckle allowing you to adjust the width of the boots around your calf. Skinnier legs can still have a snug fit and wider legs aren’t squeezed in.

Warm & Comfortable

I have loved wearing these boots. Unlike other boots, I haven’t had to wear them in at all. There has been no rubbing or stiffness. Straight away they were comfortable and easy to walk in. They are also really warm. While we haven’t had really cold weather yet, on the chilly days we have had, my feet have been plenty warm enough with just thin socks on in my boots.

Copes well with Winter

In the last month, they have been through a lot. Scottie is hand walking in the arena 30 mins every day. They have been used for mucking out daily. Walking through ankle deep mud, long wet grass and on the slippery ramp to the muck heap. They have not let me down at all. My feet stay dry and there has been plenty of grip on slippery surfaces. However, because they do come up a bit on the big size, sticky mud can be a bit challenging.

Great colour & size options

They come in 4 different colours; black, brown, mocha and navy. I went for the black this time round. And they come in sizes UK3 to UK12. They do come up on the big size. So if you are typically between sizes, they recommend sizing down. But I went for a 7 1/2, what I am in everything, and I didn’t find them too big at all compared to other country boots. I think the main area they come up a bit big is around the ankle, there is a lot of room there making it really easy to slide them on and off.

Reasonable Price

They are a bit more expensive than the average yard boot on the market at £195. But I feel that they are better than cheaper brands I have used. It’s the first time I can remember where I didn’t have a ew uncomfortable days to weeks of rubbing to wear my boots in. That in itself is worth the extra pennies!

If you don’t mind them not leaving the factory “perfect” you can also grab yourself a bargain. I didn’t need my boots to look perfect just for me to get them covered in mud. So I saved £40 on my pair by getting some that weren’t perfect. They left the factory with slightly creased/wrinkled leather around the ankles…. in the exact place you would expect them to wrinkle with wear anyway!
