Ariat Fit Tip!

Premium full grain leather with leather lining provides comfortable, rider-friendly fit; Stretch gore panel allows for more give; If measuring between widths, may be able to size down in the calf; Elasticized laces also allow for mobility through the foot; 4LR technology is ‘flat foot friendly’; available in 154 sizes which is the broadest assortment of any Ariat boot

Additional Tips & Tricks

  •  Ariat uses the highest quality zippers, coiled YKK #10
  • Tall & Tight” is the motto. The zipper should not glide up easily, but it should NOT take you 40 minutes to zip them either
  •  Height is correct when you see a “V” behind the knee when you do a slight squat
  • You can expect a ¼” to a ½” drop in height in tall boots
  • Heel lifts (or small tack sponge) can be used as an aid during break- in
  • Calf and height measurements change every other foot size on the ½ size.   So, 7.5 and 8 have the same measurements, as do 8.5 and 9

 INSIDER EXCLUSIVE : This can work to your advantage! If an 8 slim is too tight and a 8 regular is too loose, then try the 8.5 slim since that will fall between the two calf sizes.

    Ariat® Heritage Contour Field Boot is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 131.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Baggy Ankles Loved the styling, small gap at the top and a baggy ankle led me to return them. Zippers didn't feel super durable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Real comfort I have only had these boots a month so I hope they hold up as long as my last pair. We're comfortable from the first.. Run a little big but not enough to send bac and reorder.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for Price I bought these a month ago. I am weird to fit due to my small stature, small calves, and extremely large feet (11.5), but these do the job well. I would say, if you can, spring for higher quality boots, but if you can't these are a great choice. Make a great schooling boot that can also be taken into the lower level show rings.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic true to size fit Just received my Ariat Heritage Contour Field Boots and I couldn't be happier. These boots are all they claim to be and more. Couldn't find a tall boot that fit properly due to my small foot considered by some companies to be a youth, and my normal calf ,which was an adult. Because these Ariat boots are sized by foot,leg and calf measurements, it was a PERFECT FIT. Just followed the SmatPak video on boot measuring and here I am with the perfect boot. Love them!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty! I got these as a birthday gift and I adore them! I've worn them around the house a bit but have yet to ride in them. Very nice, soft, leather! I did have to return them to go up a calf size, but as usual smartpak wasince fantastic to work with. I look forward to riding in them :)

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beautiful boots but do not last I have always been a huge fan of Ariat boots but after going through 2 pairs in less than a year I am not anymore. I had one pair less than 9 months and they cracked on the top cap all the way through the boot. Smartpak was wonderful and sent me a new pair. I have had these less than 6 months and the snap on back zipper guard broke, the rubber sole is cracked and the boot and sole have become separated. Not sure what has happened, my Ariats used to last forever.....

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great but stitching came undone on buckle I bought these boots because the reviews are great, for the most part, and my other tall boots needed to be retired. When I got these the leather felt great and it didn't take long to break them in. I ride 6 days a week and multiple horses everyday. They are comfy to ride in, but after less than a week of having them the stitching on one of the buckle straps came undone. Super disappointed! Now I'm going to have to find somewhere to fix them quickly before my show in two weeks. I couldn't have complained otherwise, but this is not acceptable.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Starting to fall apart after 2 years I've had these boots for about 2 years now and they're starting to stretch out and drop weird in the ankles -- in one the bottom of my ankle pops out entirely and doesn't touch the inside of the boot when I put my heel down anymore. I do ride 2-4x a week; maybe they just couldn't hold up to that much use, but for the price I expected more. I'm really bummed because I really did like them and they were super comfortable before this. Other than that they have held up well, zipper is still going strong and the leather still looks nice.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Thin Leather I bought these boots about 5 years ago. Shortly after a year the insides where the stirrup leather rubs - had the stirrup leathers wear holes straight through my boots! I do not use low quality stirrup leathers or tack so I was quite surprised. I still ride in them as I cannot afford another pair but they have huge holes in both insides. If you're looking for quality I would recommend spend that extra cash so you can have something that lasts. Not these.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply cannot say enough great things! These are my very first pair of tall boots. I know they are not top of the line boots but they are one of the most comfortable and well made boots. I have since purchased 5 more pairs of way more expensive tall boots (including Sergio Grasso, Ariat Monaco, Volant & custom boots) and these are always my go-to boots when I know I will be wearing my boots all day. The leather is so supple and soft, I used to religiously clean and condition my boots after each ride. It took a little bit to break them in, it was rubbing on the back of my heels but heel lift solved the problem and now they are sooooo comfortable and molded to my legs, the sole is very supportable. My feet feel great after a whole day of wearing them. I highly highly recommend these beautiful and wonderful boots.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing boots I got these because i needed new boots to show in. These boots are not obly pretty, but comfy too. At first i was worried because they were too tall, but after i broke them in they fot perfectly. Love these and can't wait to show in them soon!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing boots! These boots broke in after one ride. Ordered tall and they fit perfect! I ordered a size down because of other reviews and I'm definitely glad I did. Size down fits perfect.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable. Good value. Unfortunately I needed for an upcoming show and the extra wide calf wasn't available....had to send back because the top was too tight. Hated to send back..LOVED THE BOOT! Footbed was extremely comfortable, great price.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love them! This is my first pair of tall boots. I have heard stories about how awful tall boots can be. These are amazing! They are super comfy in the soles and are breaking in very easily. I have worn them several times now and have no blisters or sore spots from rubbing. They seem to fit true to size.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most comfortable boot ever! The first time I put these on (after exchanging 4 other pairs to finally settle on this one) they fit like a GLOVE. BEAUTIFULLY. I'm so in love. They were comfortable right away. I ended up with a half size smaller in the foot than I usually wear.. But they are amazing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I live in South Louisiana so these boots have seen their fair share of rain and puddles. I have had these boots almost two years now and I still love them. They clean up nice and hold up really well. Great price for the quality and fit of this boot

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Clean looking boots Nice boots, I had to exchange mine for a smaller size because they seem to run a size big. If you are between sizes I would suggest ordering the smaller one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Boots EVER I bought these about two weeks ago and I absolutely love them! Broke in pretty easily (after five or six rides I could feel my toes again with the ankle stretching out), look great and are extremely comfortable to walk in. I'm looking forward to the show season and will certainly buy another pair in the future, whenever that becomes necessary!
    Date published: 2016-03-17
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boots! I couldn't decide between these and Tredstep Donatellos and I ended up trying both brands. I chose these boots because they were MUCH more comfortable. The leather on these boots is amazing and they broke in the first ride. These were my first brand new pair of tall boots and I was worried about the break-in process. These boots didn't leave me with any pain, fit perfectly and are extremely soft. Excellent boots for a great price!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Tall Boots at the Greatest Price I have only ridden in these boots 3 times, but they are by far my favorite. I used to have the Tredstep Donatello Field boots and they were always uncomfortable and I rode in them for about 3-5 months. They never broke in or really fit me and were horribly uncomfortable to walk around in. These boots however, are amazingly gorgeous and comfy straight out of the box. I don't have a single blister and I walked around in these boots for hours. They are made with soft and high quality leather and it has such a classy, professional look. I am absolutely obsessed with these and will reorder these if I ever need to. By far my favorite boot that I have ever owned.
    Date published: 2016-03-07
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Boots! I absolutely LOVE these boots! They have a great price for being actual leather! I did find that the boot runs big though. I'm usually a 9.5 and I had to return them for an 8.5 but that's really the only "complaint" I have! The leather is very nice and soft! Absolutely recommend these!
    Date published: 2016-02-05
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value I found the sizing of the boots to run a true size larger. Once the foot size was correct the boots fit like a glove. Very little drop in the height of the boots. The supple leather provides very little break in period. The boots offer a full length stretch panel along the zipper making the boots adapt to any position with comfort.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfort plus Ive bought my daughter these boots several times. They are so comfortable and always look good.
    Date published: 2015-12-31
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from very good looking boot I bought these, put them on, walked and rode a lot. They rubbed a little spot on the back of my heel at first but not after a quick break in period. These are very soft, almost like glove leather. I don't think they will last as long as the old ones that took a month to break in, but they are so comfortable, I don't even care!
    Date published: 2015-12-24
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally--A boot that fits. I have been looking for nice tall boots that would fit me. I am short and have slim calves. These boots fit perfectly!
    Date published: 2015-12-03
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Didn't Drop I've had these boots for about 2 months now, and while they fit absolutely perfectly in the foot and calf, they are too tall (I was in between the short and regular so I went taller). I've been told they would drop.. they haven't. The zipper is preventing that from happening. So yes, they are comfortable to ride in and extremely comfortable in the footbed thanks to the high arches, but I'm not sure I would have gotten the regular knowing they would just stretch at the top and form to the back of my knee instead of dropping. Overall I would buy another pair once these get old and break, but I would rather order the short. One start off for the lack of drop, otherwise they would be my perfect boot for low level showing/schooling.
    Date published: 2015-12-01
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent pair of boots I never write reviews but I love this pair of boots so much that I wanted to write one. It took done ride to break these boots in. They are very comfortable and look great! Ariat did a great job and at a great price. I bought this pair about 2 months ago and I'm still very happy.
