We're sorry, but certain colors/sizes are sold out and are no longer available.

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'!).

The Ariat V Sport Zip Tall Boot is the cornerstone of classic tradition designed for peak performance in the show ring, on course, or schooling at home. This boot is constructed of premium full-grain leather with a full leather lining, an oiled leather inner calf panel, and Ariat's ATS Technology footbed.  

  • Full length elasticized panel on lateral side facilitates premium fit
  • Elasticized instep piece helps you get your foot into the boot with ease
  • Contoured fit through ankle gives a sleek, tailored look
  • Full length back zip system makes it easy to get the boots on and off
  • High Spanish cut topline provides an elegant look that makes your leg appear longer
  • Duratread outsole is built for life at the barn
  • Moisture-wicking sock liner keeps your feet dry and comfortable
  • Gel-cushioned footbed with heel stabilizer absorbs shock and provides support
  • Lightweight composite forked shank enhances stability

    Ariat® V Sport Zip Tall Boot is rated 4.3125 out of 5 by 16.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ten Stars! Excellent schooling boots. I am lucky in that I fit Ariat Tall 11 Regular boots. These fit very comfortably. No breakin period needed. The blue trim is very subtle. A real winner.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy and Stylish!! I love these boots! I use them for every day riding. The leather is soft and cleans well after riding. They are holding up nicely and I have gotten a bunch of compliments.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice, quite stylish boots These are snugger in the calf than the Volant S Zips, but my usual Ariat calf size worked. Look super trendy with the blue tops. The leather dug the back of my ankle when walking, while the more supple leather on S Zips did not. (But S Zips cost significantly more.) Likely would have been fine after break-in, but I ended up sending them back.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super comfortable boots I am not a fan of rear zippers, but otherwise the design is great -- stretch panels in the right places, stylish blue top, and hopefully the perforated leather will be cool. Break-in was pretty much instant. Could use a little more foot support if you are wearing them for hours. I had to return for a narrower calf than I usually wear -- foot was true to size.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A short slim size would have been nice from Ariat I really wanted to get a tall boot for schooling, but after deciding that the volants were simply way out of my price range, I decided to go with these seeing as these were pretty similar and $200 less. I'm really glad I did because they are overall gorgeous boots. Although, I can't say much for durability yet. I put them on and immediately I could flex. The spur guards are fantastic, and actually part of the reason of why I bought them. The inside calf is nice and grippy, and the blue detail on the top is subtle but beautiful. However, I am short and slim, which meant I had to sacrifice shoe and calf size to fit my height. I would have like to have ordered a size 7(I am realistically a 6 1/2) short slim, but the short was even too tall for me in that shoe size and the slims don't have a short option. I ended up getting a size 6 Short Regular to find a boot with the closest calf size to mine. What got was exactly what I expected from the size I ordered. It was not as snug as I would have wanted but the boots will do their job. The height was perfect. The feet were a little snug, but the little stretch panel things around the ankles actually took care of that. Even though they did not fit perfectly, they were definitely worth it, If you're in my position, you'll probably be able to find a size that fits pretty well. I just wish Ariat would carry a short slim in their tall boots.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice boot. Poor fit for me. I had previously worn the Volant boot and ordered the same size. This boot does not fit as well gapes at the calf. Had to return. Will probably order the Volant again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most Comfortable Boot I've Ever Worn Holy moly. I just received these as a Christmas present and I am floored with them. My previous Ariat tall boot hugged my ankle and made ugly painful rubs, along with being bulky. These are so much more comfortable. I pulled up the zipper and literally squealed with delight. These boots are the MOST comfortable thing I have ever worn in my life. They're light weight, slimming, and comfortable! They do not even rub my ankles, I feel like I could wear ankle socks with them. Not to mention they're gorgeous. If you are reconsidering your tall boots, get these. They're simply amazing. Seriously. Click buy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing boots! Bought these boots about a month or so after I was sick of my treadstep de Vinci boots zippers breaking. These durable zippers have already put up and held up though a lot. Super comfy first ride and thin enough that I can really feel my leg on but holds up! Love love them! Only boot I'm riding in for a long time!

    Ever since I was the girl with 1,000 breyer horses and the raggity braid in her hair, I was always obsessed. In second grade I moved into a town with a barn right down the street, which is when I started taking lessons...
