Firstly, they look fabulous and can be matchy matchy with the rest of your kit which is obviously very important! Secondly, they seem to help me place my legs/feet in a much better position as I usually have rather turned out toes but not nearly as bad in these stirrups. Finally, they are SO safe! Love knowing that if I come off I won’t get dragged, I’ve come off twice already in them and although they haven’t had to ‘activate’ my feet have fallen out of them so I can highly recommend them. Also love the ability to turn them round as a mounting aid, very useful after the aforementioned dismounting incidents, couldn’t be more pleased with them really.
