The Botticelli model
The Botticelli model has a very elegant and unique overall look. This model distinguishes itself by the front-center leather lace that goes all the way up to the top of the boot. This front lace is fully functional and adjustable, so it can be used to alter the calf size of the boots a little bit. The zipper in this model is placed diagonally on the front-inside of the leg. Standard features for the Botticelli model are the WRAT leather, the stitched Vibram sole, the titan zipper, the reinforced outer shaft, and endless customization options. This model offers a high level of durability and comfort, due to the high-quality Italian calf leather. Like any other De Niro tall boot, this model is handcrafted by skilled artisans and Italian bootmaking experts at the De Niro Boot Co. factory in Casarano, near Lecce, in the South of Italy. There, the boots are also subject to a rigorous quality control process.
A variation on the standard Botticelli model, is the Tintoretto model. The Tintoretto model has a more narrow ankle, but other than that, these two models are exactly the same. We do however recommend this tapered ankle only with calf sizes of M or smaller. With a calf size of L or bigger, a Tintoretto ankle would not benefit the proportions of the boots. Please mind that to ensure the best possible fit, any Botticelli order placed through My Riding Boots in a calf size of XXXS, XXS, XS, S, or M is placed with the factory with the Tintoretto ankle! Any Botticelli order placed through My Riding Boots in a calf size of L, XL, or XXL is placed with the factory with the standard Botticelli ankle! Do you have a preference for a different ankle (for example, the Tintoretto ankle on an L calf, or the Botticelli ankle on an S calf), simply leave a checkout note with your order.
