    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! I HAD to get a new pair of boots because the hand me down paddock zip up Ariats I was given 10 years ago (I think my friend had used them 5 years before she gave them to me) had developed a hole in the side that would not have been there if my mare had not stepped on my foot while running around...The leather of those boots was so soft and comfortable and thick I didnt even get a scratch from the incident but the boots at age 15, did rip, so sadly I got a new pair.These are true to size. Broke in easily, chaffed my lower leg a bit when only wearing an ankle sock but that seems to have stopped now that they are more broken in.Very comfortable, to walk in doing chores etc.If you want to wear a thicker sock, you may need to go up a 1/2 size but but here in Arizona, I dont care much for thick socks.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from comfortable, easy to slip on! I bought the pair of boots because 2 friends I know have them and love them. A bit stiff at first but have broken in nicely. I love them now too!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Paddock Boots For Price I bought these in the place of my old synthetic boots. Within 3 months, my synthetic ones were destroyed. I am not easy on my boots! These boots have really held up through my 3-4 days at the barn a week. Right out of the box, the leather is soft and flexible. not really any break in time. I wouldn't advise going near water, water ruins leathers. These are real leather, and awesome leather! The leather quality is awesome. The duratread stuff on the bottom helps keep your feet in the stirrups. It also helps the boots to scuff less. These boots are awesome for the price, which is really affordable. I love these boots and undoubtedly, I am an Ariat Paddock Boot girl.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable These feel wonderful on my feet and had no need for "break-in" time. They were comfortable from the start. I can't speak for the durability as I've only worn them a few times.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boots! Great boots at a good price. They seem like they will hold up well. The leather looks like it might be stiff, but they were totally comfortable on my first ride in them.I ordered a 7 (I'm a 6.5 and size up in riding boots to leave room for warm socks in the winter), but the toe was WAY too long. I exchanged for a 6.5 and felt the toe was still a bit long, while the top of the boot was really tight (I have high-ish arches). Decided to risk keeping them and am glad I did because they stretched out to a more comfortable fit after the first ride.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent paddock boots I've always been an Ariat fan, and these paddock boots are no exception. I own the Heritage field boots in black and bought these paddocks in brown. The break-in time on the paddocks is a little longer than the field boots, but they're extremely comfortable, durable, and PRETTY. I love the deep brown chocolate leather. I wear a size 9 in Heritage field boots and paddock boots and an 8.5 in Ariat Legend cowboy boots.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from very comfortable These boots fit really well. This is my second pair, I have had the last ones for about 5 years and they finally came apart. I was very happy with how long they lasted.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Had These Before, Bought Them Again Had a pair of these for 6-7 years, never took care of them, were used 3 days a week and still held up for a very long time. Tried to buy a cheaper pair and they broke within a year of light use (was only riding occasionally). Re-bought these and I expect them to last me another good 6-7 years.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable I've lost count of how many pairs of these I've purchased over the years. I don't have to think twice about the brand or size. I love the zippers as they are easier to work with than shoestrings.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Me I had these boots for six years before the zipper broke. I decided to replace them with the same pair and am pleased that they seem to be of the same quality of my last pair.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice boots I Was worried these boots weren't going to be the same great quality Ariats produced years ago,as my old boots lasted me 10+ years. They are not the same of course BUT close enough to make me pleased with purchase, and so far so good!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lasted Me 8 Years! I bought a pair of the "first" model of these when I was 8 years old and they lasted me until I was 16!! I had to get rid of them when the leather got so thin from rubbing that they had holes, the stitching, heels, and zippers held up just fine. I wore these for hours a day and never took that good care of them, but they held up for riding, mucking, bathing, hot, dry, cold, or wet weather. I bought a cheaper pair, and they only lasted me 3 (havent been riding much so it probably equates to only a year on heavy use) and the heels have given out! Only buying these from now on!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always perfect paddock boots Think this is the 3rd of 4th pair of Ariats I've had in over 20 years... very durable, comfortable and fashionable. Can't ask for a better boot.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from love these boots I just bought the Ariat zip paddock boots, my last pair was the lace up kind. They had holes in the side from 3 years of wear, so I decided to try out the ones with the zipper. I love them they are easy on and easy off, they took a few rides to break in but they are great and very comfortable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT ALL-DAY BOOT I had my old Ariats for 6 years, and when I put these on, they felt like feet heaven. They took only 2 rides and wearing them everyday for a week, to become very flexible and completely broken in. I love them so much!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A long awaited savior for autumn city streets I am guilty of being a person who bought these shoes even though I don't ride horses. I've only had them for a few weeks but they are superbIt's quite difficult to find size 11 ankle boots that are stylish, waterproof and affordable, but these are it. They have endured the autumn rain so far and I receive compliments on them all the time.Again, sorry for not riding horses.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality Liked the boot, but the zip up boot was not tight enough for my slim foot. Had to return boots. Hope to get a pair of lace up boots instead.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always a favorite! I've been buying Ariat boots for over 10 years. Always reliable. I use them about twice a week and they last for years. Well worth the cost.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfort from day 1 These boots do not need to be broken in. They are comfortable from the first time you wear them. This new pair replaced another pair of Ariats that I had worn for many years and had just become too scuffed and worn from the thousands of hours of barn work and riding. Excellent quality!
