Flex Boots are the ideal solution for barefoot horses, ponies, donkeys and mules. They are great for all seasons and all equestrian activities including trail riding, schooling, jumping, driving and also turnout. Adding ice studs to the soles improves traction in winter conditions.

When fitted correctly, the boots do not rub, require no breaking in and can even be used 24/7 if required. Flex Boots provide instant relief for horses that are foot sore from laminitis, thin soles or have other hoof problems.

The basic boot consists of the boot shell and TPU gaiter. All metal hardware is attached to the boot, but neoprene gaiters or back straps are not included with this product. If you already have the gaiters and straps from previous boots, for example, the basic boot is a cost-effective way to keep your horse happy and booted. Note that Flex Boots should never be used without the correct neoprene gaiters and back straps.

Standard Flex Boots are suitable for horses with slightly longer than wide hooves. For horses with round hooves, the Flex Boot Wide provides a better fit.

Flex Boots are the best hoof boots on the market and the most comfortable boots your horse could wear – they require no breaking in! Flex Boots are great for transitioning from shod to barefoot, first time users and seasoned barefoot horses alike. The boots function similarly to human barefoot shoes, providing great shock absorption and allowing the hoof to function biomechanically correctly, without any restrictions or discomfort for the horse.

Let your horse feel the difference:

  • Patented, superior insole design combined with the outer sole’s anatomical break over point supports correct hoof function.
  • Streamlined and lightweight; the Flex Boot design is legally protected and the boot fits the hoof like a second skin.
  • Exceptional traction and suitable for all disciplines.
  • Smart fastening system; no hook and loop tape or cables that can easily break or get dirty.
  • Flex Boots are incredibly easy and quick to put on and take off. Even kids can do it!
  • Amazing drainage and easy to clean.
  • Designed to support a holistic approach to hoof and horse care.

Flex Boots are made of TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) that is soft, flexible and durable. Thanks to the skilled design and advanced technology used to make these boots, they are suitable for use in any weather and terrain; with great drainage and water-repellent materials, Flex Boots are the best hoof boots for snow, mud, very dry conditions and anywhere in between. The all-terrain sole gives superb grip, and for winter riding, the FlexStud base with pre-drilled holes make ice stud installation quick and easy.

Neoprene gaiters and back straps are needed for these basic boots, to make a usable boot. Or you can purchase a complete Flex Boot from our store.

Flex Pads can be used in the boots to offer additional cushioning and protection for horses that need this, for example, if they have thin soles or are recovering from laminitis. Pads can also help improve the fit if the boots are slightly too big.

Custom boots provide a good fit for a large variety of hoof shapes and sizes.

Flex Boots are designed with the horse’s welfare as the main priority. One of the most effective ways to promote healthy hoof development is by keeping the hooves in their ideal shape and size at all times. Owners can easily do this themselves, by learning to do a small weekly maintenance trim. Flex Boots like what the horse likes: they work best when hooves are maintained in their anatomically correct shape. Since the boot sole is essentially a cushioned air pad, long toes, high walls or sharp edges can damage the product.

Materials
The basic boot and TPU gaiter are made of thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU), a material that is often called a hybrid between plastic and rubber. TPU offers the flexibility of rubber, but with the strength and durability of plastic.

Care instructions
Flex Boots are easy to clean and maintain. The TPU material keeps its elasticity and lasts longer if the boots are in regular use. After using the boots, simply rinse off any dirt and hang the boots to dry in a well-ventilated place away from direct sunlight. Do not store the boots in a closed space such as a box or in your car. The boot shell, TPU gaiter, and back straps can be brushed clean and washed with water. Do not use cleaning products.

Flex Boots are designed, tested, and manufactured in Finland.
