A knee high winterproof boot fit for winter

The Ryder: an elegant winterproof casual, knee high boot put together with premium pull up leather, organic waxed canvas, and thermal control mesh lining.

Style code: 200024-01



Based on last year's Vienna, the Ryder is our new and improved knee high barefoot boot. We've taken all the good things from our previous boot and made some subtle improvements to ensure your walking around in cozy barefoot luxury. The new zip makes this boot easier to put on and better fitting around the lower leg - so it'll look and feel great.

Winter casual has never felt so good, the tall and thin Ryder may be new to the VIVOBAREFOOT family, but it still stays true to our roots and the principles all of our shoes are made on - Pure Barefoot Technology.

Your feet will be able to behave as if they are barefoot in style and you'll get total flexibility from the leather & waxed canvas upper. The flexible sole and upper combine to give natural motion control by allowing your Great Toe to engage rapidly with the earth as well as independent rear and fore-foot movement.

When you put your feet in the Ryder, you will notice the gentle grip on your legs- This cushioning is provided by the Thermol Control lining which will keep you you firmly secure in the boots, and warm all at the same time. The Ryder is made from a premium pull up leather which is soft and flexible. Because of this, you will find it will stretch naturally over time without loosing its winterproof benefits.

Erm, riding … of course.

Being barefoot when its too cold to take your shoes off!

The winter commute.

Smashing through the snow.

An apré ski evening of fun and games.

Ryder Ladies - I think its just me, but I couldn't get my feet into the tall boots. I found a short pair of laceups on Amazon that I will be ordering for winter.

5 stars02 March 2015

Ryder Ladies - everything was ok. quick shipment.

4 stars28 February 2015

Ryder Ladies - Good

5 stars27 February 2015

Ryder Ladies - comfortable, watertight, warm, practical and stylish

5 stars26 February 2015

Ryder Ladies - These shoes work very well. I like that, despite that I can feel the ground very well, my feet still feel warm. Granted I haven't been outside for extended periods of time, but the Nebraska winter gets pretty cold. Thanks!

1 stars26 February 2015

Ryder Ladies - I didnt get them yet and you didnt tell me why and how will you solve it... Really poor service.

4 stars25 February 2015

Ryder Ladies - Great looking boot, really is warm and waterproof. I do find the heel of the boot too large.

5 stars24 February 2015

Ryder Ladies - Generally good, and i am reeally pleased with this order. However on a separate order the wrong size was sent, which was frustrating.

5 stars22 February 2015

Ryder Ladies - I am very satisfied with the boots. I love them!
They are very comfortable, soft, warm. My feet don´t hurt as they used to in normal shoes.

4 stars21 February 2015

Ryder Ladies - Much tighter around the ankles than I expected, but otherwise good quality boots.

1 stars19 February 2015

Ryder Ladies - Technically fit my foot but the design was super floppy and dumpy around the ankle. They looked horrible and wouldn't have been comfortable for walking.

4 stars18 February 2015

Ryder Ladies - i would have like some care instructions with my Ryder Boots in order to maintain them.

4 stars18 February 2015

Ryder Ladies - I love the warmth, flexible sole, and wide toe box. I wish they were all leather, but they still look decent. They are too loose through the heel/ankle which causes them my foot to slip around quite a bit. They required some trial and error with different socks, insoles, etc to get the right fit.

4 stars17 February 2015

Ryder Ladies - Would have been great but heel loose and sloppy, plus not enough insulation in footbed. Not warm enough. Loved shape for toes, looks and true zero drop and thin sole.

4 stars16 February 2015

Ryder Ladies - The boots I ordered were well-made and looked good. I returned them, however, because they were a little too tight for my calves.

5 stars15 February 2015

Ryder Ladies - The service was good, but I did not receive the Thermal Insole Ladies

5 stars04 February 2015

Ryder Ladies - brilliant quality, exactly as described.

4 stars29 January 2015

Ryder Ladies - I was not keen on the design once I tried them on. They were a little too chunky around the legs. But extremely comfy.

5 stars22 January 2015

Ryder Ladies - I love your shoes but would hesitate to do business directly with you again

5 stars22 January 2015

Ryder Ladies - I really love those boots. Warm and stylish.

5 stars14 January 2015

Ryder Ladies - I love these boots! I've worn them almost everyday since I got them. I love boots but all my other boots were so uncomfortable. These feel great! My toes are not cramped at all! I usually forget that I am wearing them. And they are so warm, but not bulky. I've worn them in the rain and they are waterproof. I think they look very cute with jeans or leggings, but they are definitely more functional than fashionable. Not dressy at all, but I've had lots of compliments on them. They are quite pricey bit to me it is worth it for my foot to finally feel free and they are great quality!

4 stars10 January 2015

Ryder Ladies - The boots seemed to be of fine condition, just a little too big for me.

5 stars07 January 2015

Ryder Ladies - Speedy delivery at holiday time. I was shocked to see how fast these arrived.

5 stars06 January 2015

Ryder Ladies - Excellent.

4 stars05 January 2015

Ryder Ladies - Very good except that they got very wet walking through slushy snow. Is there anything we can do to waterproof them better?

5 stars03 January 2015

Ryder Ladies - Love them

4 stars01 January 2015

Ryder Ladies - I love them, they're great - the fit isn't perfect as the heel is a bit wide for my foot (I have a really narrow heel) but I'm already used to wearing them.

5 stars27 December 2014

Ryder Ladies - Very comfortable to wear and good to look at.

4 stars22 December 2014

Ryder Ladies - Seems it will still need some years to perfect winter shoes. Two kinds of material used in completely different colors is not the best choice. Sames comes with the zippers. On the other hand, best posibility to have cold weather shoes for not really crazy winter times (like Kulas or Trackers will be for).

2 stars29 November 2014

Ryder Ladies - Totally massive. Have previously sent back size 6 which were too small. Have 6.5 in 2 styles and 6 in 2 styles. The Ryder 6.5 size felt and looked huge.

5 stars26 November 2014

Ryder Ladies - As they were for the wife, she says they are awesome.

2 stars21 October 2014

Ryder Ladies - I wanted to love the Ryders but the shaft was much too narrow for my muscular calves. I could barely get them on over bare calves and the faux fur liners on the inside top of the shaft made the problem worse. The foot was perfect and roomy and just what I was looking for but because of the narrow shaft I had to return them.
