The CadetNo Need to Buy New Boots, Just Some Hi-Style Half Chaps

Call them half chaps, boot guards, whatever you’d like, but to preserve boots from the brutal wear and tear of riding, cowboys and equestrians have been wearing them for years. They actually date back all the way to 12th century Spain when the earliest of the vaqueros worn them religiously.

Functional, of course, but must-have fashion accessory? Indeed. For men and women alike, take a pair of your favorite boots, half boots, hiking and tall, and imagine reinventing these faves with a whole new look through stylish half chaps that can be interchanged as often as you like – color, fringe, sterling conchos - a whole new look is as easy as strapping them on.

Each half-chap is custom fitted to be perfect.
