Supreme comfort, supreme style and supreme peformance - the name says it all!Supreme is perfect for professionals, regular competitors or everyday riders who want to benefit from the close contact and fantastic feel of these boots. Elastic lacing at the instep allows the boot to flex with your ankle as you are walking or riding. Thanks to this, and the pliable soft leather, the boots need little or no breaking in and should be comfortable from the start. Don't confuse these with Mountain Horse's yard or workwear boots - these are designed for riding or teaching. Look after them and give them the love and care they deserve!Comfort and cushioning is provided by gel technology in the heel and ball, while stability for the foot is provided by Mountain Horse's MST steel shank. There are breathable, removable insoles with anti-bacterial properties, made from a soft shock-absorbing polymer to increase comfort and cushioning. The outsole is equipped with Mountain Hores's SCS3 Lite System. Boots equipped with SCS3 Grip can be used with all other conventional stirrups/treads on the market. When used with conventional treads, they will function safely and feel like any other riding boot. However, Mountain Horse recommend the use of SCS3 Grip stirrup treads with the SCS3 Grip boots to maximise performance of the system.SCS3 is permitted under BSJA, BE, BD and BRC rules. It is not accepted in the Pony Club whose rules state that footwear must have smooth soles.
