And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Vortex Fit Tips

Watch our fit video for further tips and tricks about this exciting new boot!

The unique contour of the Vortex zipper will take trying tall boots on to a new level.

Entry into the Vortex is like picking up your stirrups.  Instead of using a straight motion like you would with other boots, turn your toe in and allow your heel to slide into the boot with the provided shoe horn.

Place the shoe horn at the top of the leather tongue.  Use the shoe horn against your heel and step down into the boot.  As the foot enters the boot, pull the shoe horn out.

As the zipper zips around the curve of the ankle, it may feel snug a first.  Before trying the boot on, you may want to warm up the stretch gore to get it ready for your leg.  Since we want tall boots to fit very close to the leg, you may need your other hand to guide the leather together to continue to zipper.  Once the stretch gore wears in, you won’t have to do this anymore.

If zipping feels awkward, try putting a shoe string through the zipper tab to pull the zipper up.

    Ariat Vortex S Tall Boot is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Uncomfortable but nice looking I got these boots as a Christmas present but I went into the store to get fited for my size. I cannot comment on the break in time or durability yet but they are not comfortable to walk in and even less comfortable to ride in. I have every thin ankles and a size 9 and slim calf. The zipper pushes into my foot and they bunch up very painfully by the outside of my foot. When I put my heals down on anything (stairs, stirrups, etc) my heal does not touch the bottom of the shoe even with heal lifts (they might even make it worse) I need heal lifts because my leg is to short for regular but to long for short. The heal lifts do help. They side zipper makes them look very nice but it make it very uncomfortable and VERY HARD to zip. I tried on other Ariat boots and the slim calf was PERFECT for me but on these it is a tiny bit to small (hopefully breaking them in will help) To sum the boots up: 1) they are very painfully on my ankle 2) they look nice 3) the calf is more slim that other boots 4) I attached a picture of the bunching but it is not very good quality

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable boot The one criticism I have is that the zipper goes around to the side and around the ankle is pretty structured so they're dropping on the front of my shin and when my heel is down far in the stirrup it digs into my muscle a bit...hoping that as they break in that goes away. But on the upside I walked around and rode in them all day right out of the package and my feet feel great. I like the look and the textured detail..hoping they hold up over time.
