No, you don't need special riding boots.
Every pair of our magnetic safety stirrups comes with a pair of magnetic insoles, which you simply slide into your riding boots. Quick and easy.
And if you own several riding boots, you can either switch a pair of insoles between the boots or buy additional insole pairs here.
You only need to consider that the insoles are around 5mm thick. So if you have super tight riding boots, it can get a bit tricky. If you have existing insoles inside your boots, we recommend that you replace those with our magnetic insoles.
The strength of our magnetic field is dependent on the thickness of your boot-soles. Thin-soled competition boots will give you a stronger connection than thick winter-boots. That said, even with 18mm sole-thickness, you will still have an absolutely sufficient connection.
