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.

SmartPak Returns

We put our products to the test in our barns and on our horses, so we're confident that you'll be thrilled with your purchase. However, we know that life in the barn can sometimes be unpredictable. That's why we've created a stress-free return policy. If you purchase an item and it doesn't meet your expectations, we want to know about it, take care of you and give you your money back.

Free Return Shipping on all Sized Items

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'!).

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 - Black is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 131.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice fit in the ankle These boots are comfortable. However they are made in China! I am not happy to see that. I'm still debating on keeping them. The back zipper leather trim sticks out a bit which looks a bit off. The calf is a little big, but it fits everywhere else quite nicely. The height hopefully will drop a bit, as they are a wee bit too tall. The only reason I wouldn't recommend these is because they are made in China, find something else.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from SO comfy!! I bought these boots a little less than a month ago, and I can hardly fathom how amazing they are. They broke in after about the 4th/5th ride! They felt almost too comfy right out of the box( didn’t think that was possible). The leather is such good quality and stretched to the size of my foot nicely. My feet are wider, and I thought they would be too narrow, but they aren’t! I school in these and show in them! I got the blue top, and it’s not distracting at all, it’s nice and dark. The perforated leather isn’t a problem to clean either! They were nice to zip up and didn’t get stuck like other boot zippers tend to do. I’m 5’5” with slim, muscular legs, and I usually wear a 9.5 shoe, but I got the 9 regular height, medium width, and they’re perfect! The price was a bit much for me, but I figured I’d splurge for a pair of good quality boots, but then they ended up on sale when I got them!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous boots! I've been looking for a long timeto find a pair of tall boots that weren't quite as dressy as the standard and that had the versatility in sizes and these fit the bill!
    Date published: 2018-07-25
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Boot! Ive waited for over a year to purchase this boot-they fit beautifully and I love the bit of blue at the top!
    Date published: 2018-07-18
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Look, Super Comfortable I bought these boots about a month ago and they are definitely a step up from the Ariat Heritage Field Boots and not much higher of a price. Very easy to zip. I would recommend a half size down from your normal everyday shoe size as Ariat usually runs a 1/2 size big. Great spur keeper. Leather is soft. Barely any break-in time. Perfect for jumper/eventers probably a little too fashion forward for hunters.
    Date published: 2018-07-17
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly good fit! I bought these Ariats for everyday riding at home. Honestly I think they are more comfortable than my custom boots! They look good, feel good and are decent quality for the money. Hopefully they will hold up over time. Don't hesitate to try these!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable dressage everyday boot Great product fits perfect I am 6’1 and it’s didficult to find boots that fit like a glove these do
    Date published: 2018-06-11
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, so good A very comfortable boot. Zero breakin discomfort! Hopefully they hold up as well as most Ariat boots do.
    Date published: 2018-06-01
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this boot These boots are sooo comfortable. I just love them already and they aren't even broken in! As an added bonus, I had to wade through a creek on foot on a recent trail ride and about 20 min later I noticed that my feet never got wet even though I was in water up to my ankles.I would definitely recommend these. This was money well spent.
    Date published: 2018-05-29
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful boot Got these a week ago. The boot is beautifully made. Fits like custom. Super soft and comfortable the first time I rode in them. Clean right up with a damp cloth. Have gotten many compliments. Great styling. Footbed feels like a comfortable shoe,not like a boot.
