Raffaello Brushed Dressage Boot
An elegant dressage boot with a classic profile. The Raffaello is hand crafted from fine Italian calfskin and are reinforced through the outer calf with four layers of leather. This allows for a stiff lower leg and the steady contact sought after by dressage riders. The exterior calf is made from beautifully shiny "brushed" calfskin leather. This creates a high shine appearance that lasts for the entire life of the boots. The top "Rondine" curve is a subtle accent to give these boots a custom feel.
The calfskin used by DeNiro (found on the inner calf and foot of these boots) is "WRAT" leather (water resistant advanced treatment), meaning that your boots will maintain their water resistance, high shine, and elasticity for years. This is not a coating that will wear off, it is integrated into every fiber of the leather and will last the lifetime of the boots.
Comes in black with a full length zipper, hand crafted leather and vibram rubber soles, and a snap top closure with zipper guard.
The ankle and foot are supple and comfortable due to the unique shape of the heel and instep. The spanish-cut top is a very tall 8 cm in height which allows a beautiful streamline look without having to be painfully tall at the back of the knee.

DeNiro Size Chart:
Numbers are in centimeters and indicate height/calf width.
When measuring, wear your standard breeches and socks and sit in a chair with your knees bent at a 90 degree angle.
For the calf, measure around the thickest part, over breeches. We recommend having a helper take your measurements if possible.
For height, stand with a slight bend in your knee. Measure from the floor to the bend in the knee along the back of the leg with the measuring tape perpendicular to the floor.
For any questions about measuring and/or sizing, please call, text, or email us at 425-454-9453 or firstname.lastname@example.org
