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.

Foot Size - Please convert your US foot size to EU using the chart shown.
Height Measurement - When measuring the height we ask that you have a slight bend in your leg and find the outside corner crease behind your knee. For reference, try to feel for the ligament behind your knee as your starting point of measurement. Follow your leg to the ground to find the calf height in cm.
Calf Measurement - When measuring the width of your calf we suggest you be sitting with your leg at a 90 degree angle. Find the widest point of your calf and measure with a subtle tension against your leg.
When measuring please note that measurements can be adjusted to create a custom and semi-custom fitted boot with additional charges. If you are finding that you are in between sizes please contact us to help guide you to the best fit.
Boot Care information -
WRAT Calfskin Leather - Remove dirt and sand with a damp cloth or towel, allow to dry completely then gently rub or buff the DeNiro nourishing cream into the leather in a circular motion.
BRUSHED Leather - Follow the WRAT leather cleaning directions being careful to use only the DeNiro boot gel ( Non - colored product ) and a soft cloth to complete the polishing process with circular motions lightly into the leather.
Boot storage and long term care - To keep the boots in excellent condition we recommend storing the boots in dry warm locations when not in use, boot trees to ensure the boot stays in the upright position and taking a soft brush ( tooth brush works well ) to the zipper to remove excess dirt.
