Ariat® Volant Tall Boot Front Zip is rated 4.38 out of 5 by 50.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from not for me -- How many of you have, or know a rider who has, achilles tendon issues? After developing mine, I figured out it was caused by the rear zipper on my riding boots. As my boots' ankle area broke in, the zipper started to curve in also, pressing and rubbing the tendon. I started a lengthy search for a front or side zipper tall boot, and was hopeful that the Ariat Volant was it. I have worn Ariats for years, and have long appreciated their fit and durability. However, the Volant is, in my opinion, downright ... ugly. The plastic sole is more suitable for a rain boot, and the stitched welts flowing around the footbed look like a Vulcan's head veins. The front zipper was comfortable enough (like my zippered Ariat paddock boots), but the extremely narrow ankle area was too tight. It seems the Ariat designers have taken a very strange path toward what they think their customers want in a riding boot, as evidenced by all their fashion rain boot styles, and very narrow ankles. Needless to add, I'm sure, but these boots were returned. I implore riding boot manufacturers to look into all the riders complaining of achilles tendon problems (just check out all the various blogs), put the facts together, and start offering classic boots with front and side zippers.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beauty is in the eye of the beholder In my opinion, the Ariat Volant Front Zip is one ugly boot. I was so very excited about the front zipper. My previous riding boots with rear zippers caused damage to my achilles tendon after the zipper started to flow in-and-out around the creased ankle area, rubbing and pressing on the tendon as I rode. Front zippers, or forward-placed side zippers, are so very hard to find. However, even with the comfortable front zipper (think zippered paddock boots), I just could not get past the spacey rainboot look of the boot itself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So comfortable right away!No need to break in!Never had a pair of leather shoes I haven't had to break in

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It feels like a gym shoe on! I bought the first run of these boots when they came out and fell in love with the feel! I instruct people on horses all day, so I needed something that wasn't going to kill my feet. The leather is very supple, unlike the feel I get from most boots. Also the inside of the boot actually has an insole!! They do sit a bit high on my leg until they drop, but that is the same with every boot. The new gray color of the inside of the boot doesn't bleed onto my breeches like the origional red ones did. They are worth every penny to me.
