Hoofwing Boot

The Hoofwing Boot (formerly HorseSneakers) were one of the first hoof boots developed for barefoot horses back in 1986 and are semi-custom made from measurements of your horse's hooves.

Their open design allows excellent air circulation which makes it possible to keep them on 24/7 making them great for rehab. Improvements to their original design mean Hoofwings can also be used for trail riding and many other horse activities.

The Hoofwing base is made with a very durable urethane with thousands of tiny air bubbles incorporated into it. These bubbles reduce concussion and make the bases very light-weight.

The 'wings' are made with a stretchable kevlar fabric laminated to an open cell neoprene-like material.

If you require extra traction the manufacturer will embed sand into the base or for even more traction, carbide chips - this is recommended if you are using them for trail riding over varied terrain.

They come in a variety of colors including: black, red, gray, blue, white, brown, yellow, orange and green. The entire Hoofwing is repairable.

I have no personal experience with these boots however if you have a horse that is difficult to fit then the option to customize the fit is a big benefit.
