Tredstep Giotto Paddock Boots - Zip is rated 4.231884057971015 out of 5 by 69.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best paddock boot ever!!! I've been wearing Ariats for over 15 years. The quality has changed over the years so I switched to the Giotto's and absolutely love them. Breaking them in took maybe 2 days. They are comfortable for walking and standing for long periods of time but even better are a great support in the saddle. One of my better barn uniform purchases. :)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Size challenge My foot runs between a 7.5 and an 8. The 38 was too small and the 39 was WAY too big so I was really disappointed because the leather was really nice. The other challenge I found with them was the upper is very narrow but well padded.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better deal than Ariat's I have only tried them on and not worn them yet so I can't say too much, but they seem like a good paddock boot. I would prefer a squarer toe, maybe Tredstep with make more options. I bought to go with my half chaps that I love.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice boots, weird fit I have had Blundstones for years and had the soles disintegrate on my last pair (make that LAST pair!), so off to find replacements. I am a solid 8.5 with average to narrow feet and slender calves, so ordered the 8.5s. They were WAY too narrow- tight in length, width, and around the top, so exchanged them for 9s (thank you SmartPak!). These are much better through the footbed, but are almost baggy through the ankle/ top of my feet while still being tight around the top. Weird! I have no idea how they will hold up, but so far am pretty unimpressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and Comfy! After just a couple of weeks, these are my favorite paddock boots of all the ones I've had over many years. They look fantastic, break in almost instantly, the zips stay up, they're soft and padded, and have good grip in the stirrups. My one critique is that there isn't much shock absorption in the sole; so they are wonderful for riding, but I wouldn't want to use them for barn chores or walking around a show grounds all weekend. I think they probably run a smidge large, but I like having a little extra room for thick socks and to wiggle my toes. Can't comment on durability yet, but they are very well made and I'll be surprised if they don't hold up at least as well as a comparable Ariat model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boots My tredstep giotti paddock boots are amazing. They fit perfectly and the leather is very soft and easy to break in! Love them!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice quality and details So far, pleased with these boots. Not yet broken in but should mold to my feet just fine. The fit was not as narrow as I expected based on other reviews, I have a fairly narrow foot and these boots are quite roomy width wise for me. I have added a second footbed insert which makes them fit my feet much better, plus I have room for thicker socks in the winter. The length seems to be right on the money. I've only had them a couple of weeks so their longevity is not yet known, but they seem to be very well put together.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wish they were more narrow I have very narrow feet and have an awful time finding paddock boots (or any shoes for that matter!). I liked these, they are comfortable, but the 8 was too small and the 9 was way too wide. :o(

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice paddock boots for the price. I'm used to lace-ups, but decided to try the zip-up ones. They do fit looser than what I am used to, but still comfortable. I can't really comment on durability just yet, but it wouldn't surprise me if they meet or surpass my Grand Prix paddock boots regarding wear and tear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Paddock Boots ever I bought these boots after a different brand did not last as long as it should have. I have gotten other items from Tredstep before and have loved them. The fit of the boot is excellent and it did not take that long for them to break in. When this pair goes I plan to get another pair of this boot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE THEM! I had just about given up hope on finding a decent pair of zip-up paddock boots that would zip over my high arches until I tried these! They are exceptionally well made, and broke in in about two rides!I had become very frustrated with Ariat over the last few years and not only do these Tredsteps outshine Ariats in terms of leather quality and construction, but they are reasonably priced!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from more comfortable than my Ariat boots Felt broke in on the first ride ! Very soft leather & they are comfortable walking or riding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Paddock Boots I usually don't wear paddock boots but I broke my foot and needed something that had a center zipper to try and get my foot into. These boots are supportive but beautiful soft, padded leather that required no break-in. They are the only shoes I have that don't hurt my foot and have allowed me to start riding a little again even though the foot is not totally healed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!! I just got these, so I can't attest to their durability, but they are AMAZING! They are MUCH nicer than I imagined. I have spent almost $200 on Ariat paddocks, and have never had a pair this nice. They are so comfortable and soft....I am in awe of them...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the money These are really nice for the money, but run big. I had to exchange mine for one size smaller.
Date published: 2012-03-06
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really nice, good fit and padding, but.... I wanted to love these paddock boots. I have the Tredstep half chaps and wanted to have the matching paddocks. These boots are comfortable, padded, and an excellent value. But I ride in South Florida, and they are just too hot to ride in here. The padding makes for a comfortable boot, but doesn't allow the boot to breathe as much as I need. The fit is a bit less supportive than I expected, although I am used to Ariat paddocks, and Cavallo tall boots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great so far! Love the cushion around the ankle area. I'm an 8 and bought the 38. Maybe could have gone a bit smaller, but better a little big then too small. If you have larger ankles, these may not work as they are really fitted on my ankles and they are super small. Great design, as long as they hold up i am hooked!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best boots ever!!! I love these boots! They are soft, comfortable, and fit really well. They are much more comfortable than my last pair of Ariats that I returned after 6 months because they were coming apart at the toe. I love the Treadsteps way more than the Ariats. All they need to do is last more than 6 months and I will be forever sold!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable! These boots are very comfortable. The broke in very quickly and I can wear them all day more comfortably than tennis shoes. The leather is soft, the zipper sturdy, and the padded ankle is a nice touch. They are actually pretty; although I never noticed myself, I have gotten compliments on their appearance. They don't clean up looking brand-new but they aren't coming apart at the seams and for the price, you really can't beat what you're getting!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from High Hopes, Low Performance I had really high hopes that I had found the alternative to Ariat Paddocks. The leather is soft which is nice, and looks like the leather will hold up to wear. They break in quickly as well. But after about three months of light wear (an hour or two a day), the stitching has started to come loose. They don't hold a polish well, so if you like the clean and polished look, this isn't the boot for you. The footbed looks wide and large. I'm a 9.5 in Ariats, ordered a 10 in these and had to put in an insole to make them fit. There's not much support from the footbed otherwise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Boots!! These paddocks boots will not leave you dissapointed. Unlike other brands (Ariat) they don't pinch the instep and are easy to put on. They are comfortable from the minute you put them on, virtually no break-in needed!!! As with others suggestions, order a half size down... I normally wear an 8 and the 7.5 fit perfectly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A decent boot The boots are quite comfortable but they need to come in a laced style. I got them large enough to wear thicker socks in colder weather, but the ankle of the boot is a little too small to allow it.
Date published: 2011-09-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Boots I was an Ariat girl but I decided to give these a shot because Smartpak didn't carry the Ariat boots I wanted and it is far too convenient to have everything delivered together for free once a month! I usually wear the Ariat Heritage with the rounded toe because I like a roomier toe box, so I was concerned that these would be too tight. But I am glad I tried them because they are great! The quality for the price is better than Ariat. They do run a little large, I usually size up for boots to a 9 from an 8-8.5 but it was too large in the equivalent size 40, the 39 is perfect. I hope this helps you decide if you are on the fence! I also got the matching half chaps (the deluxe I think?) and they are great too, very attractive!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great boots! I'm in love with these boots! I've never had a pair of Tredsteps, but now I'm hooked! The leather is great quality, much better than ariat and so far they have held up really well.
Date published: 2011-08-16
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable! At first, I ordered a 7 1/2, but ended up sending them back for the 7. The new size was shipped right away. I ordered the same size my old Tredsteps were, but needed a half size smaller in this style. I have only worn them twice, but I'm extremely happy with how comfortable they are. I loved the old ones. I am sure these will be just as good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Great Buy Really love these. I've searched for quite some time on the best deal and best fit. These by far cover that and a lot more. They're of awesome quality n they're definitely beautiful. Worth every penny ill say. Buy them and You will LOVE them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice boots beautiful leather. Sole more rigid than ariats, which I consider a plus. They do run a little large. Really like the spur rest.
Date published: 2011-06-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than Ariat This is just my second pair of paddock boots. My first were Ariats, which I've had for about 18 months. The uppers started to split a few months ago. The Tredsteps are better constructed, with a thicker (vibram?) sole and heel, and a padded front. I like them a lot and will be getting the tall boots. One note re fit: I'm a 7.5-8/38-39; Initially I ordered the 8 which was too big. I definitely have to wear very thin socks with the 7.5-- fine in this weather but I may need to revise in the winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Paddock Boots The most comfortable paddock boots I have ever used. I didn't need to break them in at all they felt perfect from the start.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Paddock Boots I love these boots! They are comfortable, yet sleek and traditionally stylish. The fit and quality are exceptional.
