Isaac Mizrahi Live! Gored Leather Riding Boots with Buckle
please make 2" shorter shaft for petites!GreatBoot
I did not want to let go of this boot, but the shaft is a bit too tall for me since I'm 5'3". The boot is beautiful & the elatisicized goring in the back makes it so comfortable since it moves with you & is not restricting. I'm so sad to send it back but it sits too high on my shorter legs & hits right on my knee which feels awkward . Isaac please make this boot with the shaft just a smidge shorter. Just 1-1\2" or 2" shorter shaft would be great for us shorter gals. Love this boot! ( I bought the midshaft boot which is lovely, but it's not the same look as a riding boot)
Love These Boots!
These are great boots if you need extra calf room or are on your feet all day. I forget I'm wearing them! I have a narrow foot and high instep but one calf is larger than the other and I find them very comfortable. I'm from Texas and rode Hunters and jumpers so I'm intimately familiar with both western and English riding boots. These, I will say, are as comfortable as any of my custom made boots! I bought two pairs in my regular size.

I was so excited to get these but sent them back. I am 5 feet and the shaft of this boot is too long and hits me on my knee cap which just looks strange. The quality of the boot is great looking but there is no cushioning in the sole, and I am all about comfort, also the vamp felt very ridged and stiff.
I was very hesitant to order boots this expensive, but I'm SO happy! I bought the saddle color last year and they still look new after a harsh winter in WI. I ordered the black pair this year, because I can't imagine finding such an awesome boot. They even fit my friend with thick thighs who can't find boots... I LOVE THEM.

Just received my boots, and they are perfect! True to size, comfortable, and plenty of room for my calves. This style will be timeless and great for years to come. The hardware is not overpowering, but just enough to add a touch of elegance to make these the classic riding boots they should be. Very happy with the purchase and would recommend these to those looking for a great boot! Thanx again Isaac-wonderful design and craftsmanship.
Not bad, not great
These are pretty boots, and one that I've seen with a gored shaft that doesn't look obvious or hideous. These don't have as much give as I might have liked (my calves are about 16" around) and the lighter brown color isn't as rich as I might like, but might be able to correct this slightly with polish. I agree these run slightly narrow. Not sure if I like the shape of the toe box; just a little too rounded/fat. I think in general IM brings a great combination of design, quality and value but I would have to say with these, you might want to shop around a bit first if you are looking for a classic tall equestrian boot for a wider calf. I think this would be a better purchase for someone with an average calf that wants a comfortable fit and sleek look regardless of legwear (leggings, tights jeans...). These shape nicely to the leg if that that is the look you want.
Last winter I bought these in brown and got so many compliments. Wanted gray real leather boots for so long. I have faux ones but it's just not the same not to mention how beautiful and classic Isaac's boots are and how well made. I just got the gray and love them! I have purchased a lot of gray to update my wardrobe so this is perfect. I got my regular size. I am quickly becoming a boot fanatic. Issac 's products are always well made and not flimsy. Try them they are great you won't be disappointed!
GORGEOUS and comfortable
Bought these in black and they are gorgeous. They are also very comfortable and run true to size. Look great with leggings and jeans and everything!
I purchased an "as is" in the grey Isaac knee high boot. I knew I wanted a new pair of grey boots this season, but did not want to spend on up close to $195. I saw the "as is" in my size 10 , but only in wide. After reading the comments, I thought "what the heck". For only $95 instead of $165 ish, I would try. They fit great and the little extra room is perfect! Come on cool weather!!!
As always, Amy
I GOT THESE BOOTS LAST FALL, IN THE CHOCOLATE. I LOVED THS STYLE & WAS SO HAPPY TO FINALLY GET A PAIR!! SIMPLY, I LIVED IN THEM!! I CAME BACK THIS FALL TO GET THE BORDEAUX & BLACK. BUT NOTE, I WOULDN'T SHOVEL SNOW IN THEM, AS THEY'RE MORE FASHION BOOTS!!
I was very pleased with these boots. While I would prefer that they were all leather (they have a stretch material in the back) they do not look cheap as some have stated. I am not into cheap looking shoes and clothing. I wore them for the first time today and usually have trouble with my feet (I have a bunion) but I wore them all day and they felt fine. I will be back for more.
Very nice looking boots, but the inside of the foot part should be a little softer, or a little padded. considering the price. It was rough instead.
Also, the length is not really comfortable for a petite woman. Had to return.
I find most of Mizrahi's items to be way overpriced.
