How does it work?

At DeNiro Boot Co. and My Riding Boots, it is possible to design your new riding boots from scratch. This means that you can design all aspects of the boot yourself: the placement of the zipper, the colors & leather types, the decorations, the top shape and so much more! On this page, we showcase a wide variety of options for your custom-made pair of DeNiro tall boots.

Do you have any questions? Would you like for us to help you pick your options? Have you thought out your design? Contact us, and we would happily help you create the riding boots of your dreams!

Step 1: The model

The first step in the design process is picking the right model. The model of the boot determines where the zipper is placed and how the lines and stitches of the boot are shaped. All DeNiro tall boot models are exclusive and unique, and they all come with their own distinguishing features. Some models are more suitable for certain disciplines. The available DeNiro models are shown in the gallery below. Please note that DeNiro Tricolore models are not included in this page, since these models only come with a few custom options!

Step 2: The top design

After you’ve chosen your model, it is time to pick a top shape. There is a wide variety of top shapes available. These shapes can all be ordered with a standard bow or with a high dressage bow. Every top has its own unique features which will ensure a very nice overall look.

Step 3: The toe cap

Next, you’ll be choosing your toe cap. There are some great designs available, from simplistic to more extravagant!

Step 4: The sole

After choosing the model, top and toecap, you’ll be choosing the sole. De Niro has two types of soles, the Vibram sole and the Ride & Fly sole.

Vibram sole

Most DeNiro tall boots (except for the Tricolore line) are made with a Vibram sole stitched to the bottom of the foot. This very durable and sustainable Vibram sole is available in three colors: Light brown wood-look (P1), Dark brown wood-look (P3), and black (P2). You can choose whichever color you prefer.

Ride & Fly sole

Are you looking for ultimate comfort? Through its nanotech molecular particles, this sole is non-toxic, recyclable, antibacterial, shock absorber, can be used for soundproofing, is water and fire resistant, anti-traumatic, and extremely light. The Ride&Fly sole is available in five colors: Grey/Black (P4), Black/Black (P5), Brown/Black (P6), Beige/Honey (P7), and Beige/Black (P8).


Step 5: The materials

You have now picked the complete shape & base design of the boot! Now, it’s time to pick your leather types. You could either get the complete boot in one single leather type, or you could pick the leather type for each part of the boot separately! This means that you could get the whole boot in matte black, or you could choose to get the foot in matte green, the shaft in brushed burgundy, the toe cap and heel in a floral purple, the top shape in shiny gold, and the pipings in matte grey! Anything is possible; dare to be different, dare to be original, and let us help you design your absolute dream boots!

DeNiro Boot Co. offers more than 200 leather types. We have divided these leather types up into groups of similar styles and prints. The swatches of these leather types are shown below. Do you need a better picture of one of our colors? Or an impression of how two colors would look together? Simply let us know! Our product specialists have years of experience in designing DeNiro boots. We would be happy to help you out!

Step 7: Extra options

Now you’ve completely designed your boot, you can decide whether you’d like to add some additional options to your design.


Additionally, you can get the stitching of the boot done in a color of your personal preference. The stitching can be done in the exact color of the leather that you have chosen, but you can also pick a contrasting color for the stitching of your boot. A contrast-stitching can really pull the overall look of your design together beautifully. For example, a burgundy boot can look extra gorgeous with black stitching, and a sporty blue design will look extra unique with white stitching. A wide variety of stitching colors is available, so simply take your pick!


Every DeNiro boot can be ordered in four levels of stiffness: Soft – Comfy hard – Standard hard – Extra hard. We do recommend not to get Brushed, Patent, or Texturized leather on a soft shaft because this leather will wear out more easily on a soft boot. If you choose to get a comfy hard, standard hard, or extra hard boot, your boots will be reinforced in the outer shaft. The inner shaft will be soft still. The reinforcement of the outer shaft stops just above the ankle, so the ankle and foot of your boot will still be soft and super comfortable. It is also an option to get both the outer shaft and the inner shaft reinforced, but most riders prefer the inner shaft to be soft for optimal contact with the horse.


Several additions are available for most DeNiro models. These additions include adding spur rests to the foot of the boot, adding a comfort-knee cushion to the top of the boot, adding a lambskin liner on the inside of the boot, or getting your initials embroidered in the heel or in the zip guard of the boots.

Order options & upgrades

Additionally, there are some extra options that you could choose to upgrade your order!

  • Production time for a custom-made DeNiro tall boot is around 8 weeks. However, we offer a priority order service, with which your new boots can be produced for you within just 15 business days. Placing a priority order will help you get your new boots much sooner; it’s the perfect option for riders who can’t wait for the arrival of their new boots!
  • Do you find it difficult to fit in standard-sized boots? We also offer a full made-to-measure service. If you choose this option, you will not be limited by DeNiro’s size ranges; every aspect of the boots will be completely made to fit your legs! This option is perfect for riders who are hard to fit, who have differences between their right and their left leg, or who have other problems with finding the right fit for riding boots.

All done with your design?

Once you have decided on the design, the colors, the leather types, the decorations, and all the extra options that you’d like for your boots, it is time to get a quote for your draft design!

Email your design (and/or any questions that you might have about designing your DeNiro boots) to us at [email protected], and we’ll help you finalize everything. Per email, we will go over all the options you’ve picked, we’ll figure out the right sizes for you, and we’ll get you a quote for the total price of your order. We’ll also make our recommendations for design changes, matching accessories, and leather care items.

    Hi! I’d like to look at designing my boots and get an idea of cost so I can budget appropriately. I have an idea of what I’d like!

  • Laura Williams

    Recently I designed my boots and it was so much fun! So many choices you can make for your boot that I immediately felt like designing another pair of boots. So I will definitely be doing that soon! Janneke also helped me make choices for the perfect boot, top service!

  • Fay Bush

    I designed my own tall boots through My Riding Boots recently. They came out looking absolutely amazing. It was so easy and fun to design them as well. Thank you for the service!

  • Kelly Smith

    At first, I had no idea how to design my boots at all. There’s a lot of choices, which made it even harder. I designed them and got a good feeling about how they’d look. Janneke helped me really well with making all those choices. When I got them, I was very happy with the result. I would definitely buy my second pair of boots here!

  • Sarah McDonald

    The employees at My Riding Boots have helped me design several pairs of tall boots & short boots already, and I’ve loved every pair so far! At first, I went with a pre-designed boot from their website, to make sure I had the right sizes. After that pair came in, I loved them so much that I went and designed my own DeNiro boots. I have since designed 3 pairs and every single boot I’ve received exceeded my expectations!
