As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

    Ariat® Performer Lace Zip Paddock is rated 4.25 out of 5 by 24.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from as good as expected Ariat doesn't fail! This boot has all the features I wanted: laced front, elastic side gores, and a back zip. The laces are actually functioning, too, so you can adjust fit as needed. Once they're adjusted, though, slipping them on and off is a breeze with the zip. Snap at the top to keep zip in place. And just as many people say about Ariats, it took me 2 rides, max, to break them in. They look slick, and they clean up easy as pie.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Boots that fit! These are my first pair of paddock boots and I am very happy with them. I have large, wide feet and needed ankle support. The size 11 fits perfect. I love that I can lace them up and then use the zippers to get in and out quickly. Mine aren't broken in yet, the very top is a bit sharp if my sock slips down, but when I wear the right sock there is no problem at all.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Comfort I've been an Ariat Paddock Boot fan for quite some time. The Devron Pro Quantum Cobalt (Waterproof)) had been my favorite riding boot for quite some time. However, when I went looking to replace it, no luck. In the interim, I found the Performer Lace Zip the closest match. I was looking for foot comfort, stability and durability. Comfortable from the time I first wore them, with no breaking in.If only Ariat would make it waterproof, but I'm trying a solution suggested by another customer (water proof spray). The snap on the back is a bit tough to open and close and I do have to loosen the laces to take my foot out of the boot (high instep/arch). As for the laces, I switched them out for something a little softer and more pliable.In the meantime, I'm enjoying my purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best paddock boots I have owned these boots for 10 years. The leather is supple and has never cracked. Granted, I do not ride every day but I have never had a single problem with these boots. They are not waterproof but with a yearly coat of water repellant spray, they have kept my feet dry on rainy days or during a hose off. The snap is a bit hard to fasten but I'm lazy so I just leave them off! I love the lace up feature with the zip back. I have problems with other zip up boots because I get a "galoshes" effect since they never fit my small ankles. With these, I could tie them to fit and then just slip them on. Perfect for slipping on and off when you don't have a clean place to sit down!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Ariat Boots I have owned a few other pairs of ariat paddock boots (only a few because they last so long), however the only pair of black ones that my local shop had in stock was these. At first, I wasn't terribly thrilled about having lace up boots, but I love the feel and ease of zip up boots combined with the classic style and feel of tall boots and the custom fit that the laces provide

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally, a good fit for skinny feet! I have a 7N foot and slim (boney) ankles. I like the ease of zippers but most zip up paddock boots are too wide in the foot bed and too loose in the ankle, Ariats included. This style provides the ease of zippers with the custom fit of lace ups. They are very comfortable, but did need a couple of rides to break them in at the ankles. Am very happy with them - it was well worth paying a few dollars more to get a good fit! Also, the tread doesn't get clogged with dirt like some other brands.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are Great Boots! These boots are great! I have worn them everywhere and anywhere, and they have survived more then a year of almost daily use. In winter, they keep my feet very warm! I have had to trudge through feet of snow to get my horse in her paddock countless times in these boots, and they have held up!! In summer they are great too! They break in super fast. I love the easiness of just having to zip them up and go, but they also provide a very custom fit, because you can adjust with the laces. I also have Ariat tall boots for shows, and I absolutely love their products, so I knew this was a brand I could trust. If you are looking for an all around great boot, this is it!
