Ariat® Volant S Zip Tall Boot is rated 4.604651162790698 out of 5 by 43.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super comfortable and looks great!! I love these boots!! I also have the Ariat Volant front zip ones and they are great! I was looking for a second pair with a different look and I loved these ones for the accented look and cut. I show in the jumpers ring, so there is no problem with the unconventional look, and they are so comfortable for those long show days!! They are a bit roomier on the foot, I might have gone have a size smaller on these ones. And the sole gives a great grip on the stirrups.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I purchased the size 11, slim calf, regular height and they are a perfect fit! So impressed with the comfortable, supportive foot bed, supple, quality leather and the beautiful styling. Zipper and snaps area easy to negotiate as well. Ariat sizing runs generous and for me that is exactly what I was after. My foot size is actually 11 1/2 and I have enough room (no squashed toes!) and the medium width is just right. I love these boots and can't imagine any others fitting as well! Thank you Ariat!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome boot, especially for the price I love this boot! I have ridden in the Volant side zip boot 4-5 times a week for 2.5 years and have walked well over a hundred miles in them with my dog and they're still going strong with only minor stitching repairs. So I was really excited when Ariat came out with the Volant S show boot, and I have not been disappointed. I have shown in mine for 2 years now and they look and feel as nice as when they were brand new. Both of my daughters and I wear them; between the 3 of us, we are on our 4th pair in 2 years. My older daughter and I show in the jumpers so no problems with the "look" of the boot. (The soles are a little unconventional-looking for the hunters.) They are beautiful, they break in easily, the leather is soft and they are SO COMFORTABLE! Plus no zipper problems ever, which is huge.A caveat about sizing: The footbed runs a little large. I usually wear a 9, and in the side-zip Volant I got an 8.5 and the foot was a little snug. But in the Volant S, the 8.5 is roomy. This allowed my younger daughter, who has very slender calves, to size down half a foot size and then the calf fit her perfectly. (She was never able to wear the side-zip boot because the calf was too large for her.)One other great thing about these boots is the customer service from Ariat. My younger daughter is a horse professional, and her first pair of these boots had some weird issues after a few months. Ariat replaced them promptly after she sent the original pair back.Seriously, I have nothing but good things to say about these boots. They're awesome. And affordable!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super comfy!! I have been riding in chaps and half chaps for many years now because my previous experiences with tall boots during my "showing days" were filled with blisters and the struggles of putting them on/taking them off. Well I decided to give these a try and with smartpaks easy return policy I felt as though I had nothing to loose!So I did have a few problems finding the right fit....took me getting three pairs (again super easy returns and free shipping so no biggie)...... First pair was size 7, reg calf, short height. Second pair was 7, slim calf, regular height. Third pair was 6.5, slim calf, regular height. Ok so they do run big -- I normally wear a 7 in heels and 7.5 in running shoes and ended up with a 6.5 in this boot. At first the 6.5 felt a little snug across the top of my foot but after two rides they were perfect! Really really comfy and no blisters at all!Now for the height.....I am 5'6 and when I measured my leg I fell in the range of needing the "short" however when I got the boot the short height did not allow for any potential drop. My calf size also measured in the range of "regular" but I could slide my hand between my leg and the boot in the first pair I received. I went with the slim and first few times I zipped them up it was a bit snug but not uncomfortable -- there is also an elastic-type material running length of zipper which allows for a bit of give to the calf area.So to sum things up.....foot bed and calf ran big in my opinion. As far as height, I've only had for a few weeks with about 10 rides in them. Cant comment on amt of drop yet.I have officially tossed my old chaps into the trash this weekend which I have ridden in for over 10 years if that says anything! Overall really happy with my purchase!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Comfortable! I've only ridden in these boots four times, and I guess the first time doesn't really count because they needed a little breaking in still, but I LOVE them. They are so stylish and comfortable. The footbed feels like an athletic shoe. At first that worried me because these boots replaced my Vogels that I have ridden in for 15 years, so the soles were paper thin and I could really feel the stirrup. On these, there is less of a stirrup feel, but your foot doesn't slip at all. So once I got the feel for it, they were great. And landing off a jump is like heaven. Now, on my fourth ride, they feel perfectly broken in and I can't wait to ride in them again.
