What is the cost for Custom Show Jumping Boots by Tucci ?

Do I need to order the custom boot forms for my Tucci boots?

The custom boot forms are recommended but not required for your custom. They will keep your boots upright and help maintain the leather. The wooden boot forms are superior in many ways over the traditional plastic or metal boot forms. Please keep in mind that these are boot forms that are custom made for your boots. Hence, they will only fit your boots.
The custom boot forms cost $575.

Help! My Custom Tucci boots do not fit

Worry Not, we are here to help. We have a reputation of taking care of our customers. We will first check whether the boots were made to the right measurement. If needed, we will re-measure your legs and order another set of boots to be made. Be rest assured, we will address the situation in a way that is most favorable to our customers.

What does “Fully Custom” mean?

The term “custom boots” is loosely thrown around many times by other bootmakers. While we can not comment on what they mean, for us, it means completely custom boots. Allow us to clarify: Each part of your boot (heel, foot, instep, toe base, toe width, height etc) is made to measure. This means that the bottom part of your tall boot is not simply a standard size short boot (referred to as a “semi-custom”).
As an example, consider that your right foot is shaped and/or sized differently than your left foot. In this case, all these differences are accounted for when producing your custom boots.
Your custom boots are custom exclusively for you.

What models of Tucci Boots are available for Dressage?

For dressage boots, there are several different options for boots. Please do keep in mind, that minor alterations to the design are possible. Also, you can combine design elements from different models. You can design your dream boot.

What is the cost of the custom Dressage Boots by Tucci?

The Custom Dressage Boots by Tucci start at $1575. This is the base price for fully custom boots. However, if you would like to add additional options (Swarovski crystals, punch toe design etc), there will be add-on charges.

How long does it take for custom dressage boots by Tucci?

Normally, it takes 8 to 10 weeks. However, wait times of upto 6 months can be expected. We will inform you at the time of ordering the expected wait time.

How do I measure myself for Tucci boots?

Tucci Boots - How To Measure

Where is the Size Chart for the Ready-To-Wear Tucci Boots?

I am unsure about the model for my custom dressage boots by Tucci. Can I decide later?

Yes, we only require a 50% deposit at the time of ordering. Please note that the boots will not begin to be manufactured until you have decided on model and all pertinent details/options.

What colors and leather grades are available?

Tucci has almost 100 different leather textures/grades and colors available. We can show you examples of boots we have done in the past. We can also guide you for selecting the appropriate leather grade and texture depending on usage.

Do I need to come to your Wellington store for a measurement?

Yes, we recommend it.

What if I am not in Wellington? Or do not have plans to visit Wellington?

If you do not live in the South Florida area, we can come to you. However, please arrange for atleast 4 pairs of boots. Either you can order multiple pairs or ask your friends. It is not difficult to find people wanting these beautiful Tucci boots.

I already know my size in Tucci boots. Can I just place an order for the custom boots?

This is easy, since the hard part is already done. We will be glad to send you the swatches of leathers so you can pick your options.

What about custom Tucci boots for show jumping?

This is what we specialize in. Most of our orders for custom boots are from the show jumping riders. If you already know what style you want to order, all we need is a measurement. It is ideal for you to be measured in our store. However, if that is not an option, we can arrange for other options. Please Contact Us so we can arrange.

Tucci Boots For Show Jumping

Tall Boots by Tucci

Primarily, there are 4 models of show jumping boots by Tucci (not considering the short-boots-mini-chaps combination boots).

  • Harley Model – This is the most popular show jumping boot.
  • Leonardo – This is the plain and classic dress boot. Another uni-sex boot. Tucci Tall Riding Dress Boots "Leonardo"
  • Galileo – The Classic Field Boot (also uni-sex) Tucci Galileo Field Boots with Laces
  • Sofia – Classic Dress Boots designed exclusively for Women Tucci Boots - Riding Dress Boots "Sofia"

Short Boots & Mini Chaps Combinations by Tucci

Introduced about 4 years ago, the Harl Boots – Mini Chaps combination boots are the most popular combination boots on the market. Designed with a classic look, these boots have become the de-facto standard in combination boots.

The Tucci Harley Boots and chaps have a snap-on system for connecting. You can hardly tell these apart from the tall boots. The best part about these combination boots is the ability to choose boots and chaps in different sizes. The boots come in about 10 sizes ranging from EU 36 (US Women’s Size 5) through EU 46 (US Men’s Size 12). The chaps are available in 12 sizes ranging from XS through XXL.

Why You Should Choose Secchiari

History

The Secchiari boot company is a family owned business, which means their reputation and pride is represented in their company’s products.  In 1950, Stivaleria Secchiari was founded by Alfredo and Emilia Secchiari in Le Marche, Italy. With almost 70 years of experience, from 3 generations, they have mastered the art of boot making. Today, they still use the traditional marksmanship with the highest quality of leather. This makes Secchiari a top pick for equestrians around the world.

No. 1 Quality

Stivaleria Secchiari prides itself on the quality and durability of the leather that they use in their Italian boots. They hand pick out the leather they use in all the boots and accessories in Tuscany, Italy to ensure it’s to the highest of standards. Secchiari’s have a softer feel than most boots allowing you to keep close contact with your horse while being extremely durable. The soles of the boots and shoes are hand sewn and glued on. This makes the soles last longer compared to other companies which just use one method. The boots are more form fitting compared to others allowing for minimal “breaking in” time. They also have an elastic hidden along the zipper which gives the boot extra stretch for a perfect fit. These two features combined reduces the amount of wrinkles in the leather giving you a sleek, professional look.

No. 2 Options

Secchiari has a variety of “off the shelf” options from short boots and chaps to dress boots. Some of the featured tall boot models that they offer include the Zues which is a men’s showjumping model featuring a fancy stitching on the front. They also have this model in womens, Athena. Another jumping boot they offer is their field boot with laces. Their most popular dressage model is Roma, which is a sleek design featuring the hidden elastic, a rigid leather on the outer part of the boot but a soft leather inside.  

The short boots and chaps that they offer are beautifully crafted to give you the look of a tall boot. The most popular short boots are similar in style to the Zues and Athena. With a fancy stitching design on the front with elastic on each side of the zippers, comfort, quality and durability are wrapped into one. They offer this short boot in both men’s and women’s. These short boots are designed with a snap on half chap made with soft and durable leather offering a reinforced inside. These half chaps and boots are made with the highest quality calfskin allowing for almost no break in time. They also offer the chaps and boots in a more simple and classic design.

No. 3 Custom Orders

The options are endless when it comes to the customization of Secchiari boots. They offer an abundant amount of colors from patent to antique finish, with tons of ways to customize from the toe to the crown. Secchiari bootmakers will create your customized dream boots. One custom model offered is the Columbian Luxury Leather Top. This boot features your choice of boot color, toe and heel color and the option for front laces. Tack N Rider also provides customized measurements to have a boot that fits like a glove and looks anyway you’d like. The best part about a custom Secchiari boot is that it only takes 6 – 8 weeks for delivery. Compared to other companies which have a wait time of up to 6 months.

New Tucci Show Jumping Boots for 2016

Tucci Harley Field Boots in Brown

We are pleased to announce that in addition to Tucci Dressage Boots, we now carry the Tucci Boots for Show Jumping as well. There are two very exciting models of tall boots and paddock boots mini-chaps combinations for the 2015-16 season.

Tucci is a very well established name in the riding boots space. Given our philosophy of offering the very best selection, Tucci fit the bill perfectly. The company has an unwavering focus on bringing the most stylish riding boots that are comfortable and reliable. All the Tucci boots (including the short/paddock boots) are handmade in Italy.

New Models for 2016

New season means new boot models. Tucci has announced 2 new models for this upcoming season:

  1. Harley Field Boots

Classic styling with a modern touch define this good looking boot. It performs as good as it looks. The pseudo-lace area gives it a clean look with superb support for the foot.

Tucci Custom Means Full Custom (not semi)

Keep in mind that Tucci Custom means fully custom boots, not semi custom or another variation thereof. Fully Custom Boots take 6 to 8 weeks from order to delivery. That is why the Tucci measurement process for custom boots is lengthy and details. When it comes to custom boots, the key is in measuring correctly the first time. This is not a quick measurement of just the calf, height and shoe size. Tucci invests significant effort in training their dealers on how to measure correctly. This attention to adhering to the process pays dividends in the long run.

If you were looking for design inspiration or ideas on your own Tucci boots, browse our gallery of Custom Tucci Dressage Boots.

Happy Customers

When measured correctly the first time, custom boots fit the first time. Our customers are delighted. Their past experiences with custom boots have not been so smooth! Tucci goes above and beyond when it comes to customer service. Should the boot not fit initially, we work with Tucci on solutions. Tucci’s approach to custom boots (and boots in general) is different than other bootmakers. They look at each boot as an art form. Just like an art form needs perfection, each custom boot must receive the full attention of all the persons involved from start to finish. Whether that be the original dealer at your tack shop that measures you or the person that constructed your boot by hand.

Introducing De Niro Paddock Boots – Stylish, Comfortable and Light weight

DeNiro Paddock Boots – Made In Italy

Ever wanted something more out of your paddock boots? You wear them everyday, all day long sometimes. Some boots are for mostly looks, other are for high performance, some provide better protection against the elements.

There are quite a few brands of paddock boots available. From the Ariats to Freejump, there is no dearth of paddock boots manufacturers. Why then would we introduce another brand of paddock boots, you ask.

About De Niro

The answer is simple. DeNiro Boot Company has been around for a while. In fact, they started manufacturing boots in 1981. When I say manufacturing, I mean in-house manufacturing, not overseas in some third party factory in China or India.  That is right, DeNiro Boots have and continue to be proudly Made In Italy. To this day, DeNiro produces handcrafted boots at its own factory, located in Lecce in the heel (no pun intended) of Italy. Who knows boots better than Italians ! They make some of the finest and sturdiest boots across the shoe industry. They claim to be “the most copied in the world”.

De Niro Paddock Boots are now available

See for yourself why this may be true. Here is a sneak peek at the new Paddock Boots by DeNiro Boot Company.

DeNiro Boots offer advanced Water Resistance, thanks to the Water Resistance Advanced Treatment (WRAT). The leather used in the WRAT treatment allows sweat in the form of water vapor to breath out. This prevents the water from outside to enter the inside of the shoe. Meaning your feet stay hygienically dry. The leather is antibacterial and absorbent. A series of micro holes are made on the leather insole to allow the ventilation.

DeNiro Paddock Boots Sole
DeNiro Paddock Boots Sole

The midsole is in totally natural leather, with a high sweat absorbent power. The rubber sole is an effective antislip and keeps maximum security and adherence, even under extreme conditions.

DeNiro Paddock Boots Close Up

Italian styling at its best.  The YKK zipper provides a firm zipper. Special gel inserts on the ankle sides provide superb ankle protection.

Best of all, our introductory price of $189 makes these a great buy just in time for the new season. Where else can you get quality, Italian riding boots for under $200!

We are introducing these new riding boots, just before the start of the new season. So do not delay….order yours for only $189.00 today at TACKNRIDER or stop by the store anytime to try them.

Stay tuned for more new products coming soon!
