    Ariat® Heritage III H2O Zip Paddock Boot is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 72.
    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 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 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 ...

    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

    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.

    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 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 them..lol.

    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.

    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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable and comfortable I bought these boots to replace my Tredstep paddock boots that wore out within a month. Previously, I had the Ariat cobalt boots for 4 years and they were great and held up well to wear and tear. I bought the heritage boots which are a bit more budget friendly than the cobalts and I have been very pleased with them so far. Being an Ariat product, I know that will hold up to the abuse of working with jumpers and polo ponies all day. They are also very comfortable and sturdy which is a big necessity for me!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not waterproof. These boots are not waterproof. If you happen to step in a puddle, your feet will get wet. I bought these boots because they are advertised as being waterproof. I am very disappointed.
    Date published: 2013-10-21
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Functional Boots but not showy The boots are well-made, I think they run large. The water-repellant leather has a different texture and lacks shine. No polish needed but they are not a very dressy boot for formal classes.
    Date published: 2013-09-29
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as good as the pro I have used Ariats for years and I usually buy the pro. I live in them and they usually last a year. This time I was feeling poor so I tried the heritage. Very comfortable from the first time I put them on ....however, after 5 months they started to really hurt my sole of my foot. I could not see anything wrong. I even replaced the insert with Dr Scholls. They are ok for a couple of hours but not for my 12 hour days. Going back to the pro. But would recommend this boot for the casual rider.
