I need a new pair. What are your favorites? Why? I noticed the ones in a person's vlog (whom we normally do not mention on this board) are kind of stretchy looking, so you could snug them up on the foot good. What the heck brand are these?
What do you guys like? I normally buy CE, but curious what else is out there.

I used to like CE's Protechs but they changed the tops of them and they bind up with regular SMB style boots now. Not a big fan of much else out there. Love the idea of the RES boots but those don't fit my horses hooves at all unfortunately.

I have a mix in my trailer of Iconoclast, CE, PC, and I had a set of Relentless that I used more for when I was playing around the house with my horses but it finally bit the dust.
I like the fit of the Iconoclast a lot better on my horse than the others. The PC come down further to me so they protect more, but they can get in the way of the splint boot sometimes due to being too tall on my short mare. The CE I love, just haven't purchased a pair in about 5 years of them so my last CE pair is looking SAD now and since my relentless finally bit the dust they are my "trash" pair that I use on a daily basis.
All of my boots after a competition weekend get brought in the house to be hand rinsed and then washed with free and clear detergent then air dried. My white set gets a mix of free and clear detergent and a splash of clorox. They have all held up really well.
