As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Ariat's Performer Lace Zip is soft and shine-able premium full-grain leather. The elastic twin gore is for fit and comfort. ATS® technology which offers stability with all-day comfort and the Smart Sliver™ lining is moisture wicking and antibacterial. Equipped with a stabilizing lateral motion control device for additional support and full length back zipper for ease of use. Imported.

    Ariat® Performer Lace Zip Paddock is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 20.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best paddock boots I have owned these boots for 10 years. The leather is supple and has never cracked. Granted, I do not ride every day but I have never had a single problem with these boots. They are not waterproof but with a yearly coat of water repellant spray, they have kept my feet dry on rainy days or during a hose off. The snap is a bit hard to fasten but I'm lazy so I just leave them off! I love the lace up feature with the zip back. I have problems with other zip up boots because I get a "galoshes" effect since they never fit my small ankles. With these, I could tie them to fit and then just slip them on. Perfect for slipping on and off when you don't have a clean place to sit down!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Ariat Boots I have owned a few other pairs of ariat paddock boots (only a few because they last so long), however the only pair of black ones that my local shop had in stock was these. At first, I wasn't terribly thrilled about having lace up boots, but I love the feel and ease of zip up boots combined with the classic style and feel of tall boots and the custom fit that the laces provide

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally, a good fit for skinny feet! I have a 7N foot and slim (boney) ankles. I like the ease of zippers but most zip up paddock boots are too wide in the foot bed and too loose in the ankle, Ariats included. This style provides the ease of zippers with the custom fit of lace ups. They are very comfortable, but did need a couple of rides to break them in at the ankles. Am very happy with them - it was well worth paying a few dollars more to get a good fit! Also, the tread doesn't get clogged with dirt like some other brands.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are Great Boots! These boots are great! I have worn them everywhere and anywhere, and they have survived more then a year of almost daily use. In winter, they keep my feet very warm! I have had to trudge through feet of snow to get my horse in her paddock countless times in these boots, and they have held up!! In summer they are great too! They break in super fast. I love the easiness of just having to zip them up and go, but they also provide a very custom fit, because you can adjust with the laces. I also have Ariat tall boots for shows, and I absolutely love their products, so I knew this was a brand I could trust. If you are looking for an all around great boot, this is it!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Tried hard, but I hate these boots I really like the IDEA of these boots and have had a similar style in other brands. Ariat misses the boat, though, in the execution--the lace hooks at the top of the boot are way too shallow to hold the laces when you unzip, causing the boots to come unlaced, negating the whole purpose of having the zipper. I treat these as lace ups only, with the added frustration of the zipper coming undone all on it's own fairly regularly. They have been durable and are reasonably comfortable. But if you're looking for a boot where you can set up the laces for a custom fit ONCE and use the zipper for on/off otherwise, skip these.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from worth the money These are some of the more expensive and hard to find boots with the lace in the front and zip in the back. With that being said they are great. I purchased them for my wife, she has had them before and lasted a long time. She used them everyday in harsh conditions and are worn everyday they just don't fall apart. I recommend them and would say spend the extra and get them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from love them very comfortable and convenient on/off with zipper. The only thing I didnt like in the beginning was the snap was really hard to do. It has since become easier. Would at this point get them again as they are comfortable. Also wear socks that reach the top of boot for a few times or else there are blisters.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from comfortable so far they are comfortable. Wear socks just above the boot though as you will get blisters in the beginning. Love the ease of putting on.
