KL Select bell boots, made in Italy, are constructed with 100% gum rubber. This pure material helps keep the boots flexible in cold weather. The boots are designed with a rolled top to prevent rubbing in the fetlock area. The contoured, deep ribbing on the outside resists against brushing or banging. The bell boots are thick on the bottom to protect your horse’s hooves but still remain flexible enough to easily slide on and off your horse’s hooves.
