The cavalry boots are a great piece of clothing to craft if you have horses. They boost your running speed to 105% AND make your horses run faster! They also offer good protection and insulation, making them perfect for any weather.
They're super easy to make, made from easily obtainable materials:
All you need is two wooden planks and four pieces of leather (acquired from wolves, coyotes, and hyenas).
Here is a picture of the player on a horse wearing cavalry boots: (picture uploaded by Ivan of the SC Wiki)
I use these whenever I hunt from horseback, and they're great to have when running away from tigers (and other predators) at night!!
