So I am in desperate need of some new sport boots. I am currently using Weaver and they are bubbling up on the inside and is being ripped to shreds. I need something that can really take a beating and also keep dirt out. Also some new bell boots because mine are literally dead. TIA

I really like the Iconoclast. They do a good job of keeping the dirt out. Bell boots I ususally do either CE or PC.

I find my iconoclast boots to be way too bulky. I much prefer the PC boots, but they wear out quickly.

I have an old set of Bar F that I always rave about. Ugliest faded hunter green boots you've ever seen but I bought black covers for them lol 
Toughest boots you'll ever but your hands on. They haven't changed their original boots in years. I love them. Haven't tried their sport medicine boots but the link below will take you to the ones I have.  ETA they're on sale for $44.95 LOL guess who's buying more?

I usually use classic equine legacys and I have one black pair I know I have had for 10 years. Now I have lots of colors, so its not like the were the only pair I ever used. I have several pairs that I know are 5+ years and old and have had a lot of use and are still in great shape. I like their bell boots too, but they usually only last a year or 2.

I don't use them at home either.

I normally use classic equine, Iconoclast were too bulky for my mare and professional choice just don't keep dirt out very well . I did just buy a set of Kavallarie they are used by jumpers mostly but they look interesting and price was right. I paid 53 on amazon because they had a coupon right now.

 Iconoclasts - all we use now and we love them. Never any dirt inside of them. Just be prepared to spend a good 30 minutes trying to unvelcro the darn things when you first get them LOL

Currently use CE Legacy's and have been happy with them. I'm trying the new CE Crossfits- no input on those yet. I have heard great things about Ortho Eqine and those keeping the dirt out. Thinking those will be my next purchase!

Have you looked into RES sport boots? I have used them for over 6 years now and the only boots I'll use. They are made with a breathable open cell foam like they use in scuba wet suits so the legs don't get hot and lets the heat pass through. I've ridden in silica sand and the elastic on top has kept the fine sand out. Check them out resboot.com

I like Pro Choice but i’ve been starting to hear that people get dirt all on the inside. I think iconoclast might be the way to go now.

Love my Classic Equine Legacys they are very durable and last for years. Hated PC and Relentless nice boots but just dont seem to hold up. My one and only Relentless set I ever bought started ripping in only 5 rides.

NorwegienPower - 2018-09-25 11:09 AM So I am in desperate need of some new sport boots. I am currently using Weaver and they are bubbling up on the inside and is being ripped to shreds. I need something that can really take a beating and also keep dirt out. Also some new bell boots because mine are literally dead. TIA

I bought a pair of Weaver boots last year. I only wear them for races so they get very little use, and mine are bubbling too.

I have lots of pairs of Professionals Choice SMB 3 boots and not a single one of them has bubbled. One pair is nearing 10 years old. And they've all been used a lot harder than the Weaver pair.

So that turned me off on the Weaver brand. Not impressed, and they don't fit "like a glove" either.

I don't have any of the PC Ventech boots yet, but that may have to be my next purchase since the SMB 3 are getting harder to find.

As far as bell boots, I like the Classic Equine Dyno Turn (better than the Professionals Choice).
