    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE!!! This boot. I've had these boots going on 2 years now and I am so sad that it has come time to replace them. I ride anywhere from 1-5 horses 5-6 days a week and once these boots go on I don't take them off until the end of the day. They are the most comfortable tall boot I've ever had; sure they hurt at first while I was breaking them in but once they dropped I forgot I was even wearing them. I beat the heck out of my boots; Riding, grooming, bathing, catching horses in the field, you name it, I wore them doing it and I am just now having to replace them bc they have cracks down by the toes and I have worn through the calves. The heavy duty zippers though are still going strong, never had an issue. The thing I did have to replace a few times were the laces; would love if they had a dress boot option. I would definitely recommend these boots and would absolutely buy another pair... As soon as they go on sale ;).

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Gorgeous boots! These boots were absolutely gorgeous when I got them and fit exactly how the size said they would. Unfortunately, the ankle just wasn't tapered enough for my ankle and I had to send them back. SmartPak was great about having them shipped back and refunded to me.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Be Smart When Buying These Boots I have had these boot for about 10 months now and I'm already looking for new boots. It is not that I don't like the boot but I'm having many problems with the boots. When I first got them they fit great, looked amazing and would look brand new after cleaning. But about 2 months ago at a show while I was looking at pictures of my trips I saw that my boot looked really really baggy at my ankles and it was making my leg look really funny. I went to my trunk to see if it was just me, I put my boots on and pushed down on the top. The boot creased and slid right down my leg. Of course a lady was walking by and said to me "I think they are a little big". And I don't think I'm cleaning them wrong, I do what Ariat recommends to do, plus I use the Ariat tall boot trees. Other things I'm having problems with are when I polish them they get soooooo shiny. Something to say is if you use spurs regularly I would not get these boots. I love the zipper guard but they a spur rest and button on it. That is not the problem the problem is that I need the spur over the spur rest but under the button, but there is no place in-between. So the spur slips up above the button and is in the wrong spot on my boots. So it is not that I don't like the boots, the thing is that I'm having problems with them. But to note that I clean and condition them a lot because I ride multiple horses in them 3-4 day a week. Plus I show in them at least once a month and then I wear them for about 6 hour on show days for 3 day shows. So if you don't show and don't ride more that 2 days a week these would be a great boot for you. But if you ride a lot, use spurs, or show I would highly not recommend these boot.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from 45 min in them and I think I'm bleeding I just got these in the mail today. Much like another poster, I've had a nightmare finding boots that fit with ariat. I originally set out to buy Monacos but just my luck the original ones are now discontinued and I don't like the non traditional look of the new ones. I stepped down and ordered the Quantum Pros which had a great feel to the leather but I was having trouble with fit since one of my legs is a regular calf and the other is just slightly big enough to need a full. It was recommended I drop down again to these. I wasn't happy about losing quality but these have the elastic panel that allowed me to fit into the regular calf. I am interested to see how the leather breaks in but as of right now, I'm not impressed at all. the leather around the top is stiff and sharp and I'm waiting for the backs of my knees to start bleeding and haven't even ridden in them yet!I have very skinny ankles and also agree they seem boxy and are lacking the tapered and contoured ankle of the Monaco, Quantum and even Tredstep. I like the idea of the reinforced spur rests but they also seem as they may add unnecessary bulk.If I didn't have such a killer coupon from Ariat, I probably would have gone with a different brand once I couldn't get the Monacos or Quantum. I think if you can deal with the initial pain, the added elastic is a good option for someone who is hard to fit or may be on the cusp of sizes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love love LOVE! I have had these boots FOREVER. I absolutely love love love these boots. They are so comfortable. I wear an 8 Med. Reg. and they fit like a glove. They are a little bunchy around the ankle and if I don't wear some thicker socks it pinches a little, but luckily the socks don't have to be too thick. I plan on getting a second pair soon so I can have a pair for shows and a pair just to ride in. These boots give me a great grip in the saddle and help keep my lower leg from swinging. They also offer a consistent contact along the side of the horse. The leather is so soft as well and as far as I can remember their break-in time was almost nonexistent. Completely smitten with these boots.
