    I was thinking you had mentioned them before!
    But why? Why are they the best?

    They are shaped to conform with how your foot and ankle naturally hang. Look at the website and they explain how they are made from layers of bent wood to make them strong.

    Google “Nettles Country“, or something like that and you'll find their website.

    I love mine! I won a pair of Nettles and another pair came on my new saddle. I despise aluminum stirrups, I've been hit in the shin too many times. Plus they look so much better on a saddle. ;)

    I kind of like the aluminum :whistle:

    I've been wondering what the draw is for the wooden ones.

    Once you ride in them, you won't go back.
