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'!).

Ariat® Volant Tall Boot Front Zip is rated 4.448979591836735 out of 5 by 49.
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 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good boot! These boots are good but take a little to break in.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super Comfortable! This is probably the most comfortable boot I've ever bought! The footbed is like wearing a pair of sneakers and I find the front zip to be much more comfortable than traditional back zippers as well as easier to zip up. These hold up pretty well considering I ride multiple horses everyday in these year round. After roughly 3 years of wearing these I started to get holes in the inner calf (although not all the way through since they have the reinforced calf) and above the spur guard. You can contact Ariat for a credit if you have a problem with the boot. However, I feel I got my money’s worth and went ahead and purchased a second pair. If you are looking for a comfy alternative to schooling in half chaps everyday, this is the boot for you!
