Ariat was founded with one simple objective: to provide the most technologically advanced riding boots for the world's top equestrian athletes. Today, Ariat is the leading performance footwear and apparel brand for equestrian athletes around the world. From show jumping to team penning, Ariat boots provide the foundation upon which world-class athletes work, ride, and compete.
Before purchasing these, I read reviews about size and fit on other styles. I've been wearing boots since I could walk, and some brands fit larger or smaller than others. I just want to say to everyone to ignore all the comments and reviews from city dwellers who seem to give a bad review on a boot because they don't know how it's supposed to look and feel. Under no circumstances is a boot supposed to feel comfortable. I'm originally from the mid west so I know. Boots are for work, not city girl fashion, but if you must wear it, keep in mind that it is a feeling one must get used to.
These Ariat’s are gorgeous boots, some of the prettiest I’ve seen. They run about a half size large, in my opinion so that my heel slides up and down when I walk. I’d try a smaller size, but the square toe adds about 2 inches of boot past where my toes end, make g my feet look VERY long. Perhaps that’s what a square-toe boot does.....I’ll try a different style Ariat.
As soon as I stepped into these boots, I was in love with them! Without any breaking in, they are perfectly comfortable. It will take me a little while to get used to the heel but other than that, they couldn't be better. Just one word of warning about the color - I got the Washed Brown/Red and the Red color is not at all as pictured. It is darker and much more muted than shown, so if you want really RED, don't get these!
When I first ordered these boots I got them in a 8 1/2 size. But after receiving them I realized that they were too small due to the high arch I have in my feet. It was incredibly easy to return them for the correct size! Within 2 or 3 days I had the correct size delivered. I am amazed at how comfortable they are! All in all these red boots where a great buy, I would highly recommend them to anyone =).
Even the Wide width was WAY too small for her foot.
Love then and perfect fit
I wanted to get my fiance her first pair of cowboy boots (she's a city girl). These were stylish, made extremely well, and according to her, one of the most comfortable pairs of shoes she owns, right out of the box. Goes well with jeans or with dresses. The leather is nice.
Super cute boots and I love the color! So happy I read the reviews and ordered a half size down from my normal size. They are a bit snug on the tops of my feet, but think they will be perfect when I break them in.
