    Ariat® Heritage III Lace Paddock is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 82.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ariat quality; SmartPak service and assistance! My first pair lasted over 5 years with use 4-7 days a week. Hoping this second pair does as well! Love the fit, quality of construction and ease of cleaning!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Boot Purchased about a month ago and these have been my "goto" boot for riding and everyday wear. So comfortable and look great too!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from I was slightly disappointed the tongue of the boot is not very padded it is very thin. I'm hoping they hold up okay. I think they are priced high for the leather quality.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable,solid, supportive boots. Good boots,good ankle support and comfortable to wear for long periods. A little warm for summer use but it's a minor problem.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Long time to break in I got these boots couple weeks ago. I ordered them because Smartpak stopped carrying my paddock boots of choice, the Treadstep Giottozip back. (Side note: Smartpak, please carry these boots again, I love them!) These boots have taken longer to break in than any other boots I've ever owned, even my tall boots. The first 5-6 rides in them were downright painful. They seem to have finally broken in somewhat, but still aren't the most comfortable. The leather seems good quality though and I'm hoping they will hold up for a couple years. The reason I had switched to Treadstep from Ariat was because all the Ariat boots I was buying would fall apart after a year.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super comfy I am a beginner rider. I have worn these for 5 lessons and all day around the barn. The are so comfy. I left enough room to wear them with medium weight wool socks, so they are also warm enough for cold days in MA. I like the lace up option, as the zippered ones hurt the top of my foot.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seem to be a quality boot I have always worn the cheaper Ariat boots but they no longer offered them in lace up so I decided to try the next step up. So far so good but I only wear them once a week so they don't get a lot of wear. Breaking them in was easy and painless but they leather is so soft they get creases I'm odd places like the inside of the boot near the heel. I like to clean my boots after every trip to the barn to keep the dirt and mud from drying out the leather. I'm hoping these boots last a really long time so that I won't have to buy a new pair next year.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfy boots Bought to practice in with new half chaps. Bought different brand that fell apart in a couple of months. Friends have these and love them

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredibly comfortable! I bought these boots because an experienced rider/friend said they would be good for what I do around horses: and that is, walk next to them, as I hold onto a little special needs rider. Even though I neglected to "break them in" before my hours of volunteering, I never noticed them on my feet--no pinching, no rubbing, no blisters! They seem to be made very well, and I am quite pleased with my purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely love I've used these boots a few times now and I absolutely love them!!! They are very comfortable especially the heel, I prefer the laces since it gives me a choice at how tight I want it tied. These boots are great and at a reasonable price

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Durable I have had these boots for less than a year and they have cracks where the boot bends by the ball of the foot and the sole of the boot is separating around the entire toe area of both boots. As a result, if I go anywhere near water my entire foot get soaked because the boot has no water resistant ability anymore. In the boot's defense, I wore them 5-6 days a week, hosed/bathed, and turned out in them an rarely cleaned or conditioned them, but I still expected them to wear better. Love the style, very comfortable, but they don't last.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from One month in and couldn't be happier! After a month with these I have no complaints whatsoever! No wear and tear, no break in required, and they still look like new. I waterproofed them straight out of the box and clean them everyday but I run through boots faster than horses run through blankets... These are definitely worth the extra effort!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Comfortable Lovely Boot I bought these because I could not seem to find a pair of shorter field boots for my foot and calf size (9 slim) so I thought I'd go to paddock boots and half chaps. I love Ariat boots to begin with though I had never bought paddock boots before. When these arrived I tried them on and they fit great! I am a size 9 and have a bit of a narrow foot, which is why I bought the lace up in case I had the tighten them to fit better. These run true to size and I never had to tighten them, they fit my feet great! Great arch support and very comfortable. The leather is nice and soft, I don't think there will be much of a break in stage as it's supple. Not sure how they will hold up yet, we will find out when I start riding again. I will probably post another review once I've had quite a few rides in them. I am a bit rough on my boots so it will be interesting to see how durable they are. Overall, wonderful looking boot, very comfortable, and great price!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice and comfortable paddock boots Have used those boots for 10 years now. These are new, but still same quality and comfort. My son with very skinny calf used them in black for showing in pair with the Ariat Monaco Half Chaps, and nobody will see the difference!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always love my Ariats! I have been hooked on Ariat paddock boots for as long as I have been hooked on horses! They are always durable as well as comfortable. I would recommend any of the Ariat boots again and again to fellow riders. I was very excited when I received these boots (as I have not had to buy a pair in years, literally) and found that they are just as high of quality as all of my boots in the past have been. I have worn a size 9 for years, so I again ordered a size 9, and they fit perfectly.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not durable I've worn these paddock boots since I've started riding, and they've always lasted several years. After wearing out pair I had for about 3 years, I bought the pair I've had now. They seemed just as nice, broke in quickly, and were very comfortable. However after only a couple months the bottom started separating from the rest of the boot in the toe area, and they're now starting to crack near the ball of the foot. I do ride in them almost every day, but I would expect them to last much longer than this. I've had them for about 6-8 months now and I don't expect them to last more than a year (they've already lost their water resistance due to cracks/separation). This has always been a great boots, but this time i was disappointed with the quality and dirability.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very happy! Just got them and I'm very happy with the quality of boot. It's been a while since I've owned a pair of paddock boots, and I'm very happy with these. Fair price, good quality. I have several pairs of ariat boots, mostly western and they are 8.5, these I got in an 8 and feel like they might still be a 1/2 size too large. This is my first pair of L4R sole and I'm not sure it's as comfortable as my ATS soles in my other boots. I'll have to get back to you on that after some miles in them! I would recommend ordering 1/2 to a whole size smaller than your tennis shoe size. I like my English boots snugg and my western boots loose.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ariat Heritage -- classic Paddock Boot The service and delivery from SmartPak was perfect. My regret with Ariat and all the paddock boot lines I checked is that no one makes Narrow widths -- AA, S, SS. I have slim to super slim feet and having to wear two pairs of thick socks does not make the boots tight enough and does not enhance comfort.
    Date published: 2014-12-09
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from good boots but sizing has changed I've worn Ariat Heritage paddock boots for years...always in a size 7.5. I've never thought twice about ordering them and they've always been great...except for this year. This year's pair arrived and I was surprised to find that the 7.5 now fits more like an 8 or 8.5. And they just don't feel as well constructed as in the past. So for this year I guess I'll wear thick socks, and next year maybe look at some other brands, despite my historic Ariat loyalty!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love these boot ! I am not a rider, but had been looking for a lace-up boot and happened upon this boot on the SmartPak website - much less expensive than a "fashion" boot, but every-bit as good looking - plus, I venture that it is way more comfortable ... great arch support and what I expect will be a long-lasting soul. I walked 3+ miles in them the first time I wore them and no complaints at all !!!
    Date published: 2014-11-28
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like them a lot These boots broke in quickly and look very nice with my Ariat half chaps. Great for the price. The laces are very long and sometimes stick out from under my chap, but that is a small issue. My only worry is that the back of the heel above the little spur notch seems to be wearing out much faster than the rest of the boot, I'm not sure if that has more to do with the chaps I have rubbing there too or the boot construction.
    Date published: 2014-10-29
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Have gone down in quality I find the quality far different than the prior Heritage Paddock boot which I have had for 4-5 years. The leather seems a cheaper quality. There are only two sets of hooks instead of 3 on the top part of the boot. The boot just doesn't feel as comfortable as the one it's replacing. I'm actually going to send them back.
    Date published: 2014-10-11
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value! Being a professional I'm in my paddock boots a lot throughout a day. I'm very hard on my boots, from riding, teaching in the sand, washing horses in the wash stall or bringing horses in from turnout I put them through the ringer! They hold up very well and the price makes it very affordableo replace when I do finally wear them out.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love these dang booties I bought these around the beginning of winter time and they still look as good as new! I purchased these because I didn't even own any paddock boots and I used to ride in my steel toed "work" boots. I figured I would treat myself to some proper riding booties and I'm so glad I picked these. I ordered online and I got a 7.5 which are a little too big for me during summer, but perfect for winter of course because there's plenty of room for socks! (I recently just bought another pair in a smaller size) Although they are too big, they are excellent. The first day I had them I actually got stepped on (of course) but no mark was left! Scuffed out with my hand and it went away. They're super sleek and are very easy to clean, I hardly even have to actually take any sort of soap or cleaner to them because they can easily be wiped off. They give me great support and are overall just so comfortable! I used to wear them to school with leggings and always got compliments on them hahah little did people know they were paddock boots! They also helped me improve my riding skills because they are flexible enough in the ankle to allow my heels to go into proper position. I would definitely recommend these boots to anyone and everyone.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not built to last I returned the pair I ordered. The soles were thin and offered no support and the general quality of the boots was poor.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Typical Ariat quality, but durability... I used these boots for about 8 months after falling in love with them at my local tack store. However, I was surprisingly disappointed with the durability of them! I've had a pair of Ariat Western boots that I've had for about 5 years with no sign of wear and at 8 months of use these boots have a case of pretty severe cracked leather just a bit behind the decorative "ribbon" near the toe of the boot that extends down either side of the boot. Being Ariat however, these are unparalleled in terms of comfort- did require a break-in period but no blisters or pain! I'll admit I perhaps didn't oil and care for them as much as I should've as I tend to be pretty hard on my boots and tack, so perhaps if well oiled near that decorative strip they would last longer. (the cracking so far is purely cosmetic-it hasn't entirely worn through the leather- so the boot is still suitable for schooling)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Comfortable! I love the lace up feature as it allows me to insert orthodics. These boots are extremely well made and fit me beautifully. I would recommend buying a half size smaller as they run larger than the zip up. YOUR CUSTOMER SERVICE DEPT. IS AWESOME!
