We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer so you won't find it cheaper anywhere else. This also means we can't apply any further discounts or promotions.

And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Ariat® Heritage III Zip Paddock is rated 4.588235294117647 out of 5 by 153.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable, useful boot. I originally bought these in brown, ended up liking them so well I also ordered them in black. They were a little stiff in the first wearing, but quickly broke in and became quite comfortable.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Don't last like they used to THese paddock boots used to last a year or more. Now, they last less than a year and I always get hold on the inside toes - huge holes that allow dirt, mud, bath water, etc in. They're comfortable and sturdy but don't last more than about 4 months with six day a week riding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality with comfort I have always used Ariat as a prime source for paddock boots as they hold up much better than most other brands. This the first time I've tried the zip up boots as I like my boots tight around the ankle. I have grown to like them and hope they last the normal 18 months with heavy ware.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable boots The accuracy of the size was perfect. These boots are incredibly comfortable. They hold up extremely well. I will be buying other things from smartpak. Super fast shipping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Far so Good! First time ordering boots online without trying them on first. Looked at the sizing chart and these fit great! They are very comfortable, and are breaking in quickly. The soles are comfy which makes it easy to wear they all day! I have a pair of western Ariat boots that have lasted me several years and are still in great condition. I hope these do the same.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good looking,but....... I ordered these to replace a pair that I had bought 15 years ago but wore only 2 or 3 times as they seem to press down on my foot where the top seam connects the toe to the rest of the boot. Unfortunately, this situation still exists but not to the same degree;nothing that can't be remedied once they are broken in. I have not had this issue with any other boots I own, so I can only conclude that it is a result of the design. Other than that, they are good looking and seem well-made.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quite comfortable! This is the fourth pair of Heritage Paddock Boots that I have owned. This pair seems to run about .5 size larger but it will work for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality Construction True to size. Ariat boots are always comfortable, well-constructed and look great. Can't go wrong!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! I HAD to get a new pair of boots because the hand me down paddock zip up Ariats I was given 10 years ago (I think my friend had used them 5 years before she gave them to me) had developed a hole in the side that would not have been there if my mare had not stepped on my foot while running around...The leather of those boots was so soft and comfortable and thick I didnt even get a scratch from the incident but the boots at age 15, did rip, so sadly I got a new pair.These are true to size. Broke in easily, chaffed my lower leg a bit when only wearing an ankle sock but that seems to have stopped now that they are more broken in.Very comfortable, to walk in doing chores etc.If you want to wear a thicker sock, you may need to go up a 1/2 size but but here in Arizona, I dont care much for thick socks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from comfortable, easy to slip on! I bought the pair of boots because 2 friends I know have them and love them. A bit stiff at first but have broken in nicely. I love them now too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Paddock Boots For Price I bought these in the place of my old synthetic boots. Within 3 months, my synthetic ones were destroyed. I am not easy on my boots! These boots have really held up through my 3-4 days at the barn a week. Right out of the box, the leather is soft and flexible. not really any break in time. I wouldn't advise going near water, water ruins leathers. These are real leather, and awesome leather! The leather quality is awesome. The duratread stuff on the bottom helps keep your feet in the stirrups. It also helps the boots to scuff less. These boots are awesome for the price, which is really affordable. I love these boots and undoubtedly, I am an Ariat Paddock Boot girl.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable These feel wonderful on my feet and had no need for "break-in" time. They were comfortable from the start. I can't speak for the durability as I've only worn them a few times.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boots! Great boots at a good price. They seem like they will hold up well. The leather looks like it might be stiff, but they were totally comfortable on my first ride in them.I ordered a 7 (I'm a 6.5 and size up in riding boots to leave room for warm socks in the winter), but the toe was WAY too long. I exchanged for a 6.5 and felt the toe was still a bit long, while the top of the boot was really tight (I have high-ish arches). Decided to risk keeping them and am glad I did because they stretched out to a more comfortable fit after the first ride.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent paddock boots I've always been an Ariat fan, and these paddock boots are no exception. I own the Heritage field boots in black and bought these paddocks in brown. The break-in time on the paddocks is a little longer than the field boots, but they're extremely comfortable, durable, and PRETTY. I love the deep brown chocolate leather. I wear a size 9 in Heritage field boots and paddock boots and an 8.5 in Ariat Legend cowboy boots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very comfortable These boots fit really well. This is my second pair, I have had the last ones for about 5 years and they finally came apart. I was very happy with how long they lasted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from trustworthy I have used this brand of paddock boot for years. They hold up well and the comfort and support continue to satisfy my needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Had These Before, Bought Them Again Had a pair of these for 6-7 years, never took care of them, were used 3 days a week and still held up for a very long time. Tried to buy a cheaper pair and they broke within a year of light use (was only riding occasionally). Re-bought these and I expect them to last me another good 6-7 years.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good all around paddock boots I have worn Ariat Heritage paddock boots for years. I have them both zippered and lace up and in black and chocolate. I find them comfortable and durable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable I've lost count of how many pairs of these I've purchased over the years. I don't have to think twice about the brand or size. I love the zippers as they are easier to work with than shoestrings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from so comfortable I have Ariat western boots and I love them so I knew the English boots would be great as well
Date published: 2015-06-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Me I had these boots for six years before the zipper broke. I decided to replace them with the same pair and am pleased that they seem to be of the same quality of my last pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable I have used these boots for a little over a week now. They are a good fit and are very comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice boots I Was worried these boots weren't going to be the same great quality Ariats produced years ago,as my old boots lasted me 10+ years. They are not the same of course BUT close enough to make me pleased with purchase, and so far so good!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them! Really comfortable, quality leather and stitching, fits true to size.
Date published: 2015-01-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lasted Me 8 Years! I bought a pair of the "first" model of these when I was 8 years old and they lasted me until I was 16!! I had to get rid of them when the leather got so thin from rubbing that they had holes, the stitching, heels, and zippers held up just fine. I wore these for hours a day and never took that good care of them, but they held up for riding, mucking, bathing, hot, dry, cold, or wet weather. I bought a cheaper pair, and they only lasted me 3 (havent been riding much so it probably equates to only a year on heavy use) and the heels have given out! Only buying these from now on!
