“The origins of the modern riding boot are, like the boot itself, at once humble and noteworthy, with centuries of tradition tied up in its design and craftsmanship. Following Napoleon’s defeat at Waterloo, the Duke of Wellington’s notoriety led to his low-heel boot becoming a popular staple for cavalry and civilians alike.

Riding boots appeared in the 1500’s for men who used their horses as daily transportation to get to where they were going. Better developed shoes were made in the 1800’s during the American Gold Rush.  And riding boots ended up as ‘POLO SPORT’ outfit.
