    Ariat® Heritage III Lace Paddock is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 82.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for me! This is my second pair of Ariats. I used the previous pair for riding for about 14 years! These feel comfortable and fit great! Love em!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 3rd pair I bought my third pair of Ariat paddock boots and wore them 6+ hours a day for five days in the saddle on a trip to Turkey. There was NO breaking in time and my feet were comfortable with no blisters or rubs. I feel confident in the superior fit and quality of Ariat.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice boots I purchased these boots when my previous Ariat boots finally bit the dust. Those wore like iron. These boots have not held up as well; I had my previous boots for 5-6 years, and they only really started wearing out in the final year. I have had these boots for about a year, and the leather on the toe is wearing out quickly, as is the elastic on the back. The leather quality is clearly not as high as it used to be. These are nice boots, and I would recommend them, but do not expect them to wear as well as the old Ariats.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice boot Bought this boot as it was less expensive than the Ariats I usually buy. I like the more expensive ones better but they have gotten ridiculously high priced. These will do.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great boot I have been wearing this style boot for 20 years. I absolutely love them and would not wear anything else. They pair nicely with the Ariat half chaps. A pair usually lasts me about 3-4 years. I bought these on sale as my next backup!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feel great and look great! Really love these boots!  I usually wear a size 9 but took 8.5 in these.  Don't plan to wear thick socks with them.  I prefer the laces since I can fine tune the snugness.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice paddocks Love these boots! I've been riding and working in mine around 4 days a week for over a year and they're still in great condition! They're super comfortable and have held up wonderfully, even though I admittedly don't always take the best care of them. They're great!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed! These boots were given to me as a gift, and I couldn't be happier! They fit me perfectly, offer great support, and are SO durable! I have had mine for 3 years and they are still going strong! Not to mention my feet always stay dry on rainy days! I only had to replace the laces, but that is no big deal considering the fact that I will probably have these for many years to come. Ariat makes the best boots ever!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from lovely fit and beautiful boots sadly not durable i purchased these boots from smart packs. I have a wide foot and they were tight initially. they broke in in about 3-4 times of wearing them and then fit beautifully. I was really disappointed when they started breaking through on both feet on the inside of the foot between the big toe and the insole. like cheap thin leather. Ive probably worn them 30 times maybe..... I've conditioned and cleaned them probably half a dozen times. what a let down because i LOVE these boots but for me they did not hold up well. I'm wondering if their more expensive paddock boots have thicker leather? I love the styling and they are very comfortable just the pair i ordered were not long lasting.i keep seeing other riders are switching to other brands so I'm wondering why these ariats have such a high rating if it seems that many of ariats long time customers are searching for other options and complaining about the quality of ariats being not what they used to be?? I'm giving overall 2 stars only because they are lovely boots and if you don't mind replacing every 3 to 5 months you will love them.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from These boots are pretty nice. I normally wear a size 10 1/2 to 11 but unfortunately this boot doesn't come in a half size 10 1/2 so I had to go with the bigger size. It slips up and down a little on my heel because it's a little too big, but I think if you can order in your true size, these boots would fit perfect. They are very soft and don't need breaking in. They have also stayed shiny after days of wearing outside in the dirt. The leather is not as thick as I was expecting them to be but they still look and feel good. I would probably suggest these boots to someone.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Runs Large If ordering, I would recommend a 1/2 size smaller. Especially, if you are an in-between size. Aside from running a little bit large; I was disappointed in the quality. These seem a little cheap in quality, compared to most of Ariat's products that I've previously owned. I'm returning them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boots! After wearing Saxon Equileather boots for 2.5 years, I was ready to move up. I asked for and received these for Christmas. I usually wear an 8.5 or 9 in shoes and went with the 9 because I have thick legs and wanted to make sure they wouldn't be too tight at the top. I probably would have been ok with the 8.5 as they are a bit too big. I put an insole in and lace them tight and I do just fine, no blisters even after walking in the pasture for 45 minutes looking for my horse, then 3 hours of grooming, tacking, and riding. I love how easy they are to clean and how comfortable they are. The leather seems really nice as well! I've only had them for a month, so I can't speak to durability. I got 2.5 years out of fake leather boots, so I have high expectations for these!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT BOOTS I recently purchased my first pair of Ariat Paddock Boots. I have worn a pair of Western Ariat Heritage Lacers for the last several years. They are very comfortable and they still look quite new. I was hoping the paddock boots would be as comfortable as the Western boots and I was not disappointed. They felt great from the first day I wore them no break in needed. Ariat quality is excellent. I am very hard on my boots constantly getting them wet when bathing the horses but yet they hold up beautifuly.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from disappointing I have owned ariat paddock boots in the past that have lasted FOREVER and I am still extremely happy with the quality even though they are about 100000 years old and starting to rip through at the toe. HOWEVER, upon receiving these boots for my birthday I found them to feel stiff and of poorer quality than my older boots. I am very disappointed

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from durable and comfortable This boots leather is amazing. It's sturdy and durable, but soft/supple enough to be so comfortable in. they broke in easily and have lasted 1 1/2 yrs now without any signs of repair or replacement needs. The size is perfect, i'm a 9 & the 9 was spot on. Also a great traditional and clean look. very much worth the spend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ariat boots are my favorite I ride several horses a day, Ariat are all I have purchased in the past several years. They fit great and wear well. These boots work very hard for me. I am never disappointed with them. I strongly recommend them without hesitation.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these boots! This is my second pair of these boots and they are wonderful! My first pair lasted over 2 years with me wearing them 4-5 days/week. They are super comfy and very durable, they look great with my Ariat Concord half chaps too. I bought the Monaco paddock boots awhile back thinking that because they were more expensive they would be better but I HATED them so I went back to these and I will never go back!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Purchase I am a new to riding and was looking for an affordable paddock boot. These boots are well priced and very comfortable - wore them right away out of the box and didn't need any break in time! They do run big - I normally take a 9 - 9 1/2 and I ordered a size 9 but had to return for an 8 1/2 and even those are a little big, so I just wear thicker socks. Would rather have room in the boot to accommodate thicker socks in the winter. Haven't used them long enough to really determine quality....but hoping they last a long time! LOVE the free shipping and free return policy - there aren't many tack shops in my area and the shipping policy made ordering and returning easy and hassle free!!! Wouldn't hesitate to order again from Smart Pak.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Yikes! I have two other Ariat Paddock Boots, so I thought I'd have no problems with these... boy was I wrong! They feel cheap, look cheap and when I walked my heel kept rising up inside the boot due to the cheap thin leather that doesn't move with you when walk. I returned them immediately!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great boots Had these same boots for a year before I left them at the gym and lost them. :( Glad to have another pair - and quick shipping ensured I had them before a schooling show!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great boots Like other reviewers noted, these boots run about one-half size too big. But returns were easy and so were credit card refunds. I've had the right size about a week and they've broken in wonderfully. Perfect for riding and when you're done they're fine for walking around town or hiking. Feel durable and very comfortable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice boot for the price. I also have the round toe style in the chocolate and love them too. Very comfortable, I could wear them all day.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Boots for the Price Overall good boots for the price, the width of the shoe feels a little wider than my previous pair of Ariat boots, but the boots are true to size and overall good fit.The leather is pretty stiff when you first get it, I have rode in the boots about 8 times and they are starting to break in nicely.Very comfortable shoe and looks nice with my half chaps. Great everyday boot.
    Date published: 2012-05-15
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Last for the long haul This is my second pair of Ariat paddock boots. I definitely prefer the lace up, as the zippers seem to break down pretty quick. Even with being in and out of the washracks getting wet and wearing the boots 5 days a week in lessons with half chaps, my last pair lasted me several years.
    Date published: 2012-04-16
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Boot for the Price Good Boot for the price point. Comfortable from the start. Sizing runs a little big so if you are a half size, order down.Used this boot for practice and barn use only, not a Western Show Boot.
