: I had seen that LA Sheriff monocycle police had dropped tall boots (except it seems for special events.) There was an article in the OC Register reading they're going the same way and I noticed Beverly Hills PD seems to have joined the party. Are tall boots on mounted police going away?
Last time I looked, the California Highway Patrol motor officers still wore the tall boots and those tight beige breeches, looking very sharp. I suspect the high price of tall boots may cause them to be replaced. Happily, there some excellent ones that cost less than Dehners.
