We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer so you won't find it cheaper anywhere else. This also means we can't apply any further discounts or promotions.
We're sorry, but certain colors/sizes are sold out and are no longer available.

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'!).

Why We Love This

This boot is constructed of premium full-grain leather with a full leather lining, an oiled leather inner calf panel, and Ariat's ATS Technology footbed.

Sizing

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 is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 81.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from super comfy Have owned these boots for about 6 months now- they were comfortable right away and are great for walking around the farm in addition to riding. The inner calf leather has a sticky quality that helps secure your leg. I have the style with the blue accent on the tops- not sure if this style is available anymore but I do like the accent. It it subtle but cool. Overall this is a slightly nontraditional but still attractive boot that I think is great for dressage, jumpers and eventing but maybe not for the hunters

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy boots but not small enough for skinny legs i ordered these as I'm a trainer and wanted a comfortable pair of boots which I could spend the day on my feet in. There were amazingly comfy, soft, supple leather, and a great sole. I wish I could have kept them but unfortunately they don't make them small enough to fit my legs. They were very loose around the lower leg and ankle. If you have super skinny legs then these may not work for you. Otherwise I really liked them. Great value for money.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Super comfy but zippers are disappointing I love the fit, style and comfort of these boots, and could happily ride and walk around in them all day. The only negative is the zippers, which slide down within a few minutes of riding. Improvement to the zip quality, or the addition of a zip keeper, would make a huge improvement to these boots.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy and Fits Being short with tiny feet and muscular calves, it's a struggle to find an economical tall boot. I've been living in SS half chaps for years and finally Ariat came out with options for girls like me. They're very comfortable, very free in the ankle, and they give a great close contact feel.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this boot! These boots are super cute, easy to get on and off, and come already broken in! I schooled all day at thermal the first day I wore them, no problem. I love them to use all day at the farm. No changing from work boots to riding boots because these just wipe off and they're good to go. My regular tall boots would kill my feet after walking around all day, but the Volants almost feel like tennis shoes to walk in. I highly recommend them.
