The Fine Print

We love our products and we're happy to take them back - even custom items. We'll happily take back everything from engraved halters to personalized jackets - even embroidered blankets that have been worn (minus the manure, please). But there are a few things we have to restrict returns on (silly federal regulations).

Undergarments
Health regulations require that undergarments (including bras) need to be in new condition (tags and packages intact) in order to be returned. (Even if it wasn't required, do you really want to shop from a store that takes back used undergarments?!)

Saddles
As riders, we know what a big investment a saddle is. That's why we're proud to offer the best Test Ride program in the business. You can keep our Test Ride saddles risk-free for five days, to really make sure you like the fit and the feel. We know that to truly try a saddle, you have to really ride in it. So go ahead and girth it up. Forget about wrapping your stirrup leathers. Try it with or without a saddle pad. Basically, treat it like you already bought it, so you can make sure you really want to. Because when you buy a saddle from us, we want to make sure you love it. Of course, we want our other customers to love their new saddles, too.
That's why we have a Test Ride option for each saddle we carry - so that all of the other saddles can stay in pristine condition, waiting for their new owners. For this reason, if you purchase a saddle outside the Test Ride program, it's still eligible for return, but must be free from any marks or damage.

So that's it. Seriously. Those are all of our "rules." Well, except the most important one - treating our customers the way we want to be treated. So if you have any questions or if there is anything we can do, please call us at 1-800-461-8898 or email CustomerCare@SmartPak.com. We are always happy to help.

Ariat Fit Tips!
 
Premium full grain leather shaft with perforations make this boot soft to the touch; Gore stretch panel allow for generous fit; Elasticized instep provides more mobility and flex through foot and ankle;  If between calf measurements, opt for smaller calf; V Sport makes a great option for a rider wanting more accommodation through the foot of the boot

Additional Tips & Tricks

  •  Ariat uses the highest quality zippers, coiled YKK #10
  •  “Tall & Tight” is the motto. The zipper should not glide up easily, but it should NOT take you 40 minutes to zip them either
  • Height is correct when you see a “V” behind the knee when you do a slight squat
  •  You can expect a ¼” to a ½” drop in height in tall boots
  •  Heel lifts (or small tack sponge) can be used as an aid during break- in
  • Calf and height measurements change every other foot size on the ½ size.   So, 7.5 and 8 have the same measurements, as do 8.5 and 9

INSIDER EXCLUSIVE : This can work to your advantage! If an 8 slim is too tight and a 8 regular is too loose, then try the 8.5 slim since that will fall between the two calf sizes.

    Ariat® V Sport Zip Tall Boot - All Over Black is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 33.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Boots I love these boots. Wore them 2 days at work to break in. Hoped on my horse and it was so easy to keep my heel down. Even my trainer noticed the difference. She recommended these boots as she wears them too. I will buy again for sure!
    Date published: 2020-02-21
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from happily back to Ariat! I love these boots. The last boots I bought were the contour dress boots and I was sorely disappointed ( the stupid piece of leather that was supposed to protect my ankle from the sock was awful. It traveled around the sides of the boots leaving me with a very sore ankle) I swore off of Ariat, convinced that quality had gone south. I was broken hearted that the company who had made my favorite boots for at least 25 years, (my last favorite dress boot was stolen from the back of my car). So I was forced to explore other boots, and suffered ill fitting, zipper breaking disasters. Finally, while recovering from back surgery, yes from a foolish fall from my horse, I began doing serious research. I came back again and again to this particular boot, and finally ordered it. I was reassured by the newer design with the attached leather protector, and the heavier zipper. I wear a size 8, but I am only 5ft 2in tall so need a short boot, with a regular calf. Ariat does know how to accommodate me without spending a fortune. I got the boots this week end and rode in them the next day. Yes the back of the knee was a bit tall for a short boot, but it has already dropped a bit, so that is not a problem. The regular calf seems tighter than my other pairs, but I could zip it and expect it to loosen with time. The quality and comfort was great. The foot bed could have been a bit softer, say with a memory foam insert, but is was good enough. For what I paid I am delighted. The ankle fits me nicely, and the shape is as custom as I am likely to ever have. Thank you Ariat, for improving your line to meet standards of days past.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My second pair and counting... These are a super comfortable, durable, and practical training boot at an affordable price. Oh, and they break-in super easily. What more could you ask for? I am on to my second pair and really hope Ariat does not ever discontinue them!
    Date published: 2020-01-23
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally a boot that fits! I have wide calves and have trouble finding a boot that both fits in the calves and doesn’t end up being too big in the ankles. These boots are slimmer in the lower leg while still fitting my calves. They’re super comfy as well.
    Date published: 2020-01-08
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wish they were perfect. I bit the bullet and ordered a pair full price but couldn't justify keeping them. They fit nicely up to above the calf where there was a gap, not contoured back below the knee. I called customer support and they said it's just a fit issue on a per person basis. If you're thinking about these, it's probably worth a shot since you can return for free.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lovely boot that hurt my toes. I had to return these lovely boots. The slim fit my skinny legs perfectly and the footbed was super comfortable as are all Ariat boots, but the toes slopes in so much that my toes were painfully squished and it hurt to walk. I couldn’t flatten all my toes inside the boot at all. I was disappointed!
    Date published: 2019-11-15
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from I want to like these! I want to like these boots so much, but I’ve had such a hard time getting a pair that fits. I tried a 9.5 wide and it was pretty tight around my calf and then I tried a 9 x-wide and I was swimming in them. I think unfortunately I just need to find a different style and brand. These look like they’re very well made and the shoe bed is very comfortable.
    Date published: 2019-11-13
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from If only they fit me!! I honestly fell in love with these boots as soon as I took them out of the box. They are edgy and eye-catching, but not distracting or obnoxious. The leather is beautiful and the boot itself is comfortable. Unfortunately, they just didn’t fit the shape of my leg well and left a sizable gap at the top. A different Ariat style fit me better.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from love the grip Bought them about a month ago, loved them the first time I rode in them. So grippy held my leg in position. Very little break in as walking in them. Great use them 5 days a week. Also my calf is a very hard to fit calf/leg.
    Date published: 2019-10-18
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleasantly Surprised for the Price, Comfortable I'm 5 feet tall, about 105 lbs, with little skinny bird legs but wide (thought little) feet. The problem I ALWAYS have is finding a boot that is wide enough in the foot while not swimming in the calf or having them be way too tall. If I go up a size to fit my wider foot then the calf width and boot height only gets much worse. I'm a dressage rider and my every day and show boots are De Niros, which actually fit pretty dang well for off the shelf, but there's absolutely no room for anything but a very thin sock in the foot. I live in Western Montana so wearing "summer" boots in the winter is not an option, especially as riding is my profession so I can't grin and bare the cold for a one horse day as I'm in my riding boots many hours a day and it's REALLY cold here in the winter. For the last several years I've worn my very old and beloved Ariat Hunter Dress Boots (which I really wish were still made...) with a rubber gator on the foot and since they'd stretched enough in the foot over all their years of use I could get a wool sock, a toe warmer in, and with winter breeches I was good to go. I also don't really like the "snow boot" effect of most proper winter boots and the Ariat Bromonts are both too tall and way too wide in the calf as their sizing options are limited. Basically, I have never been able to find a proper winter boot that even kind of fits so imagine my horror when the zippers in the old Ariats went for the 79th time and the shoe repair guy said there was no way to get another zipper on them. So the search began for a boot that would be comfortable (read: Ariats in general), provide enough room in the foot for a thick sock, a toe warmer, and still some breathing room/air to not constrict my toes, but also would fit in the other dimensions... And these have delivered! I ordered up a half size from my normal shoe size (to a 7 from a 6.5) to allow for more warm nonsense around my foot, based on other reviewers stating that the calf ran narrow I opted for the regular calf instead of slim even though slim would technically have been the right measurements, and got the short height. They're perfect. If I didn't have a very thick winter breech on and a thick sock, the calf would actually be a bit too big, and it still is to a small degree, but the ankle is definitely quite narrow and "shapely" in this boot, despite the fact that I have very little ankles, so the narrower calf would probably be just a bit too narrow for my needs. I think if you don't have very slim ankles then the calf sizing on this boot could get tricky. I think the foot runs true to size as it's an excellent fit with the thick sock and toe warmer with still a little room, so the usual 6.5 foot would probably be perfect only if I wanted them to fit for summer riding. It seems the toe box is a bit wider than other Ariat boots I've tried, too. The height (at 17", technically too high based on measurements and my other boots) is ideal in that it's a bit too tall and given how the leather in these boots is fairly soft and on the thinner side (versus a traditional rigid/stiff/thick dress boot) I'm sure they'll drop at least 1/4" even though they're snug in the ankle, so maybe the height runs "short". This is DEFINITELY not a legit winter boot in that it's heavily vented and obviously not insulated, but it does have a nice sturdy looking sole that wraps around the foot of the boot. The other plus is that I think they'll still work just fine for the rare occasions that I jump, which is a real uncomfortable bummer when you're in rigid dress boots and you prefer a short jumping length in the stirrup. I've not worn them much yet but they feel like they'll break in very quickly, they're comfortable, and there's nothing about them that is bugging my feet despite my tendency to encounter "Princess and the Pea" issues with riding boots and footwear in general. They look nice, even though I'm used to a front/side zipper versus rear, the zipper itself is quite hardy looking, and there's a nice little extra piece of leather inside the boot that goes up quite high to protect the back of your ankle from the zipper. Totally pleased with the purchase especially given the price since finding good boots that aren't at least several hundred dollars is difficult. How they'll hold up? Dunno. I assume they wouldn't last forever because they are quite soft, and I'm sure they'll end up a bit on the slouchy side since the leather is that type, but for the price I'd be happy to buy them again in a few years' time if they really wore out.
