Overview

Why We Love This

The Ariat V Sport Zip Tall Boot is the cornerstone of classic equestrian tradition and is designed for peak performance whether you’re in the show ring or schooling at home. This full-grain leather boot has a contoured fit through the ankle and a high Spanish-cut topline that gives you a sleek, tailored look and elasticized panels for a customized fit. The Ariat V Sport Zip Tall Boot features Ariat’s ATS technology footbed that offers optimal stability and all-day comfort with a moisture-wicking lining to keep your feet dry and comfortable, a gel cushion footbed with a heel stabilizer for maximum shock absorption and support, and a specialized shank that provides three times the support of traditional boot shanks. A tough Duratread® outsole finishes off this boot that is crafted to deliver equestrian excellence through advanced performance, fit, and design.

Imported.

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.

Reviews
Ariat® V Sport Zip Tall Boot - All Over Black is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 87.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Strange fit I was so excited to receive these boots, but they had a very strange fit. Like many of the other reviews said, the ankle was too tight. The boots look really nice and are extremely comfortable on your feet. If these fit I would have loved to keep them. Sadly I had to return them. I love my Ariat paddock boots and wish these fit the same.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Take a bit to break in [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I found the measurements to be accurate but the break in period around the ankles is rough. A few bandaids got me through. Comfy foot bed. Wish there was a zipper keeper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ankle fit is great! After trying a few boots, I couldn’t find any that fit contoured around the ankle. These boots are perfect! They fit great everywhere, except the top is a little loose but not loose enough to make a difference in anything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from O so shine sauces he. Love my new boots just breaking them in my horse likes the shine he's so smart.
Date published: 2022-02-05
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Looks good but looks are deceiving. I tried this boot thinking it was the closest to my extremely comfortable Volant S that are short wide model. The fit is completely different. And the short doesn’t come in extra wide to make it work for me. The toe box area is much narrower than Volant S. Bring back the old Volant S please!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Boots! Great boots! I have larger calves and was always told I’d need customs but these were super stretchy and fit like a glove. Not to mention the grip! I’ve never felt more secure in the saddle.
Date published: 2022-01-25
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Quality Problems Pro: The foot bed is comfortable and the sole is secure in the stirrup. The boots break in very quickly - rideable the first day and 'broken in' after the first week. Buy the tightest leg circumference you can stand as the leather will stretch. As the leather stretches, the boot will wrinkle and drop significantly. Boot trees will help. Con: The quality is POOR. Within 2 months, the gusset on the top of the foot tore open. The second gusset tore at 3 months. At 6 months, the zipper got sticky and then multiple teeth popped and wont hold. At the barn, several people have these boots and all have problems.... holes worn through the leg/ankle leather, bad zippers, awkward wrinkling creates blisters, etc. These boots are pricey for breakage at 3 months, 12-18 months wear. If you purchase, keep back up boots. Assume a short life on these boots.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Appearance problem Perfect in every way except the perforated leather. I could use these for jumper shows otherwise and would have kept them! As it was, I returned them because I didn’t want to also need a separate pair of show boots.
