Ariat Monaco Field Boot
LOVE these boots!
I was skeptical to spend this amount of money on a pair of boots knowing that Ariat has had some quality issues, but I absolutely love them!! They are incredibly comfortable in the foot, and the leg fits like a dream! I've only ridden in them once, but I'm amazed that I didn't have blisters or pain normally associate with breaking in new boots. I am worried about the quality and how long the super soft leather will last. I'm planning on using the for show use only. Great purchase!

Beautiful elegant boots
It seems that Ariat has fixed the former zipper issues in these boot. I love mine- as other reviews say - they are soft, fit like a glove and have a very elegant look. I don't expect to wear them for every day riding. It surprises me that noone has said anything about the footbed. I LOVE it- it has great stabilization and that famous Ariat arch support. I have bought Ariat paddock boots exclusively for probably 20 years specifically because of how good that footbed feels. I expect to wear these boots for shows for many years.

Elegant and comfortable
These are the most elegant, most comfortable boots I've ever worn. I have a hard time finding boots tall enough, and these are perfect. Fits like a custom boot. Hard to wear anything else once you've worn these. They give me the ankle support I can't get with my half chaps and paddock boots. Comfortable enough for every day yet would hold their own against any custom boot in the show ring.

Love, Love, Love
I just Love these boots! I really had a hard time finding the right tall boot, I am rather short and have large calves. Although I did not set out to spend this much on a pair of riding boots they were the only ones that fit right without having to have custom boots made. I do not regret my purchase for a minute, they are so beautiful and comfortable! I get compliments all the time on how nice they look. I take good care of them and have not had an issue, I have had them 1 1/2 years!

I love my Monacos! They are amazing. I only lessoned in them about twice and they were broken in. I only show in them. They are strictly show boots. They are very soft leather and need to be taken care of. Which means clean and conditioning. Put the trees in the boot and put the boots in the bag. They are like babies sensitive. Riding in them are amazing, they provide excellent grip. Fit like a glove. I love them. I've had my boots for almost a year and a half. I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE my monacos!!!!
