I bought my first pair of Ariat paddock boots about 5 years ago and they were awful. They were the kind that zipped down the middle of the front, and on the first ride they destroyed my feet. Literally bruised the top of my foot where the zipper was in addition to huge blisters, and I swore I'd never buy Ariat again.
I am not a rider. I choose to have at least one pair of leather ankle high lace-up boots to serve my weakened ankles, moderate arch, high instep, wide forefoot, narrow heel in a casual business setting with a great deal of walking. I ordered 3 pair of lace-up Ariat Paddock boots: Heritage [email protected], Round [email protected], Heritage [email protected] The Heritage IV had a nice smooth thick leather that was quite stiff and would polish up nicely but it would take a while to break those in comfortably. Amazingly enough the wide was too roomy for me even with cushy socks and my own sole inserts. I can see where this boot would be a boon to those with truly wide feet. The RT had lots of wiggle room in the toe box while slim enough to cradle the heels but with the same leather as the Heritage IV and I might have been satisfied enough with that alone despite the odd appearance had I not then tried on the Heritage Breeze.
The quality of these boots is not as good as the quality of similar.Ariat boots I bought 10 years ago. There seems to be less arch support, they dont have the lace holders where the laces click into place and the tongue is low quality. I returned them after emailing Ariat customer service to see if there is a better model available. It took Ariat a month to reply and when I did get a reply it advised me that my inquiry was closed.
I only wear them one hour a week but WOW they are so much more comfortable than the non leather ones I have had for several years. I have MS and it is hard to get boots on with just a zipper front side or back. These super easy lace ups are so much easier. They are beyond comfortable and look great. Also my husband is thrilled because apparently he can now "spit shine"my boots. Who knew he was concerned about such things. LOL.
I bought these boots after meeting a woman at a workshop that had them. They looked really comfy, and let me tell you they are! I love these boots. They fit nicely, they were slightly roomy, but perfect for wearing a pair of warm wool socks. These boots keep my feet dry and warm. From right out of the box, I could wear them all day with no discomfort. I also got the Breeze half chaps, and love those as well. I prefer them to my field boots. My favorite thing about these boots is that they do double duty. They are so stylish that I wear them to work and then to the barn. After the barn, I wipe them off and wear them to work again, with no horsey smell. I am very happy with these boots. They serve me well. I highly recommend them.
Nice, comfortable boots right out of the box. I normally wear an 8 or an 8 1/2, depending on the brand, style. I ordered an 8 1/2, and it allows for my thick socks nicely!
I love these boots. I got them to wear to wear with my boot cut slacks. They are awesome. I have a narrow ankle and these fit!! Most of the boots I buy are too wide in the shank and provide no support but these are great.
I have been wearing this boot for years and purchased this pair as a gift for my cousin who has degenerated cartilage in her ankles. Unfortunately her feet are too swollen to allow her to get the boots on. I wear my boots every day and love them and my granddaughter wears them too!
