|Shoe Store Footwear Factory Fashion Directory Definition List Fashion Industry News Clothing Industry Glossary
Riding boots are boots made to be used for horseback riding. Modern riding boots are usually knee-high and made of leather, not unlike the fashion go-go boots of later years. The modern riding boot is however usually low-heeled, even though historically the high heel is supposed to have been invented for riding boots to prevent the boot from slipping out of the stirrup; thus e.g. the cowboy boot has a higher heel than the modern riding boot.
