Detailed Review

The Vivobarefoot Ryder Boots for women is the brand’s take on the classic riding boot but with a few modifications. The materials, as well as the choice to hold off on adding too many shoe technologies, make this boot more flexible and with better ground feedback compared to most riding boots.

Materials

The front of the Vivobarefoot Women’s Ryder Boot is made up of Wildhide leather which is collected from free-roaming cattle in Ethiopia. Although the hide still comes from animals, Vivobarefoot acquires the material in a way that’s most responsible. 

To improve the in-shoe comfort, a microfiber lining was added to the side of the leather material that touches the skin. The back panel is made of a material called Neoprene which hugs the wearer’s calf without the feeling of constriction.

Both materials are pliant enough for the boot to be rolled up into a ball. This shows how flexible the boot can really be. Despite this, there were some Vivobarefoot Ryder Reviews that mentioned the lack of lining from within the boot. Because of this, the cold could get to their feet during very low-temperature weather.

Durability & Protection

As mentioned, it is flexible yet hardy. Some Vivobarefoot Ryder Boots reviews mentioned that the hide goes better with age when taken care of properly. Both the Wildhide and the Neoprene are winterproof which means the materials have a certain degree of water, dirt, and cold resistance.

The outsole has the Pro5 technology, a patent of the brand. It is a kind of rubber that has up to five times the puncture resistance of other minimalist shoe outsoles. This gives the underfoot sufficient protection from objects that can easily cause injury.

Design & Usage

There were plenty of Vivobarefoot Ryder Boots Reviews that said that the knee-high boot was designed for a shallower instep. Even though there aren’t a lot of layers that serve as cushioning, those that have a higher instep arch might find the fit to be a bit snug.

Vivobarefoot believes that the perfect shoe shouldn’t have any features that cause biomechanical interference. It’s how the brand designed the Vivobarefoot Ryder Boots – all flat with no arch support. The shape of the toe box is also unlike most riding boots because of a little bit of extra room that allows your big toe to go straight out.

There’s a zipper on the side to allow the wearer to easily slip into the boot. It runs from the base of the boot all the way up to the tip. 

Most Vivobarefoot Ryder Women’s Black Leather boots were either dressed up or down by reviewers. Because of its classic design, the majority of females appreciated that they can pull off both casual and sophisticated looks using their pair.

Fit

The Vivobarefoot Ryder Boot is of average width. Despite this, it’s important to remember that the Ryder was designed specifically for women’s feet and, therefore, may have a narrower toe box. Although most reviewers have commented that the boot stays true to size, those with wide feet and high arches may find the fit to be a bit snugger.

Additionally, many have mentioned that although the back part of the boot’s shaft is made from a stretchy Neoprene material, the fit caters more to those with narrow calves.

Inside are removable insoles that help enhance the fit from within. The insert is thermal so not only does it help with the fit but it also provides warmth to the foot. Thin socks may be worn to add a bit more warmth.

Performance

Almost all reviews said that the boot feels that it is sturdy and is built to last. There were those who had already worn their pair for some time during winter days, and there were no signs of early wear and tear.

A lot of female reviewers were happy that a minimalist boot was available in the market. When they tried their pair out, they mentioned a lot of positive comments about the tactile feedback the boot provided.
