    Ariat® Heritage III H2O Zip Paddock Boot is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 78.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit! Rode in them right out of the box! These boots are amazing. Fit was perfect. No break-in time! I have a wide foot, and these boots fit great ! The price point was why I made the purchase. Delivery was fast!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing!!!! I recently bought this a few months ago. I'm the kind of person how rides about 5-7 times a week these boots are perfect for my everyday use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My best paddock boots! Very nice quality, flexible leather. Being water proof is a PLUS.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from nice boot but NOT waterproof I was really excited to get these so quickly from the awesome SmartPak super fast delivery. We finally had some rain here in Northern California and on day 2, the toe area soaked completely through. And that was just from walking to and from the paddocks for a day, the riding itself happened in an indoor. I'll be sending those back pronto, since the only reason I bought them was to have something waterproof. As far as the fit goes, I wear a 7 in all my Ariat boots, these appear a bit roomier, but ok with thicker socks.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent boot I bought these boots two weeks ago and previously bought the same ones 2 years ago and wanted the same exact ones. I didn't realize how worn my old ones were but the waterproof feature worked up until they ripped. I love these paddock boots.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome paddock boots I got these for my birthday a few months ago. They're awesome and I love that their waterproof as my barn is in a swamp zone. Great for lessons and everyday use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE these boots! I am a very indecisive person. I spent close to 2 hours with over 15 tabs open trying to decide on a pair of waterproof boots similar to my Stockports but without the "construction worker" look. These are absolutely perfect. I saddled up my horse as soon as UPS delivered these; I couldn't wait to try them out! You don't have to worry about the break-in period - they are comfy right out of the box! The ankles provide enough stability to make me feel secure in the saddle, but they are flexible enough for movement without rubbing and the soles are perfectly grippy!! I am currently wearing them with Dublin easy care half chaps and they go really well together. I think my favorite thing about these boots is you can dress them up or down; they really go with anything. As for sizing, I am a 9.5 and these fit true to size. There is a little extra toe space for thicker socks, but even with a thin sock they fit my feet really well. I highly recommend these to anyone looking for a quality pair of boots, either for mucking or riding!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortsbke I don't like my feet squished. I am a trainer, on my feet in my boots all day. These allow room for my toes to be straight and were soft and comfortable from day one. Tried square toed Ariats, but the were too tight. I did get 1/2 size larger in this boot so that I could add gels or heavy socks. I am VERY happy with this purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable and durable: lasted for years These boots withstood about 4-5 years of daily wear (late spring - late fall) and finally need to be replaced. They are still perfectly functional but are now less supportive. I wear them all day around my farm for chores and riding. They are great in our spring and fall mud seasons, and in summer when we bathe the horses often. My foot is quite narrow and they fit well. The leather seems maybe a bit less sturdy/supportive than my previous Ariats and is finally beginning to split at the flex points. This is totally understandable since they are so old and have had a hard life! The zippers still work perfectly. I'm definitely buying another pair.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always used them the store near us the prices are too high,love the boots and love your price.
    Date published: 2016-03-03
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too insulated These boots are decently waterproof but I would not buy again. The waterproofing does wear off fairly quickly and the inside sole of the boots holds moisture, so if your feet sweat, the boots hold in that moisture. Definitely will not buy again.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bought as Christmas gift I bought these boots as a Christmas present for a friend, she loves them.
    Date published: 2016-01-15
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from comfy the moment i put them on .. have not had them long , so the jury is out if the zipper lasts ... i know in the past my Ariat paddock boots zippers have broke , but that was after many miles put on them , other than that , very comfortable , no breaking in period at all ...
    Date published: 2015-12-21
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have been loyal to Ariat and have enjoyed their the quality of product slightly less than in previous years - they seem to run narrow in the ball of the foot and the leather is not as good
    Date published: 2015-10-22
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boot! I usually use lace up boots but tried these for the waterproof feature. I absolutely love them! Very comfortable and love the ease of the zipper. Great that they are waterproof ....handy for quickly hosing off my hot ️️horse after a ride and I don't have to change shoes!
    Date published: 2015-09-08
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Features I spend a lot of my time at the barn, tried the waterproof for the days that I normally get soaked feet, they're great! I only use paddock boots since I ride saddleseat- these are the best yet!
    Date published: 2015-09-06
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Boot These boots are very comfortable, no break in necessary, they are good to go! I hose them off at end of day and no leakage has occurred. I found them true to size.
    Date published: 2015-08-28
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice looking Even for being waterproof, these boots look great! I think they are the perfect boot for barn work and riding alike. The only trouble is they seem to take a long time to break in.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features I bought these for my granddaughter and they fit perfectly
    Date published: 2015-02-13
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable These boots didn't need any breaking in and were comfortable from the start. I love walking and riding in them. I ordered 1/2 a size smaller, and although the right one was slightly snug to begin with, they are a perfect fit now.
    Date published: 2015-01-22
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from love Had these boots for 4 months. I don't take them off except to change socks. Been searching for a way to support the healing of a heel spur (calcium growth on heel bone) and these boots are the ticket. So comfortable, I am always happy to easily zip them up and go. Even converted me from always wearing tall boots when I ride. Works from barn to my teaching job. Only issue is the waterproofing on the leather doesn't allow for shining up scratches.
    Date published: 2015-01-21
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from accurate sizing Sill breaking them in as they pinch along a seam across the top of the boot, but seem to be softening. I think it could be a design error as They are otherwise roomy enough.
    Date published: 2015-01-13
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boots! The boots fit true to size. They were very comfortable and totally waterproof!
    Date published: 2015-01-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from lasting! Bought these boots last Christmas and they have lasted and still look great! Ariat is the only kind of paddock boot I have had and would never go any other way! These boots are truly waterproof and durable. Great boot.
    Date published: 2014-12-31
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tough boots! Just ordereded my 2nd pair of these boots. I wear them every day in the barn...I am rough on them but they will last 1 1/2 to 2 years, then my husband makes me trash
    Date published: 2014-12-23
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from I have been wearing Ariat Paddock boots for years. I was a USPC DC/mom and wore them all day long for hours at a time. I still ride in them now and keep them on after I leave the barn. I had to return these because there is a considerable lack of support in the foot bed and they are simply not as well made as the ones I need to replace. I sent them back and ordered the Devon Pro which I know are supposed to be even sturdier -same thing the quality was even more disappointing. I sent them back too. I think Ariat may have lost me and I am very sad because they have always been my go-to paddock boot.
    Date published: 2014-12-01
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable I wear these every day to the barn and just bought a second pair after my last pair finally fell apart. They are durable and comfortable. I wear an 8 and they are true to size. I highly recommend them.
    Date published: 2014-07-19
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dry Feet @ 70 mph I bought these boots last year for riding my motorcycle. They are wonderful. I've always had Ariat paddocks, back from my horse days, but these were the first H2O's , wasn't sure if they'd work out because of the zipper, but they did. Rode them all last year and are still in excellent shape, elastic is still strong, and they still look great. Love them, the only boots I wear for riding all the time now, not just for rain. Highway water at 60-70 mph didn't get through. I highly recommend them to everyone.
    Date published: 2014-04-06
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for everyday use I have pretty much always had ariat paddock boots, and they always seem to last me a long time. I decided to go with this Heritage III H2O zip paddocks instead of the regular heritage III's because I thought for only a little bit more money I would be getting a better value. I wear these boots almost every single day. There have been great in the summer for keeping my feet dry when I hose off horses. I think they may run a little large. They aren't super fancy boots, but they are wonderful if you're looking for something practical to wear around the farm.
    Date published: 2014-03-18
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks waterproof and feels sturdy. These boots fit well but were too warm for my feet.  I returned them and will try the Regular Heritage III zip boot instead.
