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 Tall Boot is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 28.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from poor fitting I am not overweight at all (1m70 for 58 Kg) but impossible to find good fitting in Ariat tall boots. A shame as I am very satisfy of the Ariat short boots I have. I am really questioning if the fitting of women boots are really done for women. I need a Euro 39 or 40 depending of the shoes shape (I have square feet). The regular width is too narrow and in Full width is not available in Short height. The regular height is way too tall. It comes up to right on my knee and way too high behind it making it very very uncomfortable for riding. A really shame!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super comfy-very tight I bought these about 3wks ago, they are tight through the calf. I thought about returning them for a larger calf size but changed my mind. I warmed up the leather and elastic in the sun and eventually got them zipped! They are tight but will be great once officially broken in.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from V Sport Boot is far better I bought a second pair of these because I liked the first pair, but the second pair started to split away from the sole after about three months. Bought V Sport boot the next time which had a far superior sole and a much better vale for money. Please Bring the Sport Boots back!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite tall boots!! — Disappointed these are discontinued!! These are my absolute favorite tall boots, I just bought my second pair because I realized they were being discontinued and my first pair is about worn out after 3 years of daily riding/use. They are so easy to break in and so comfortable to wear and ride in.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful but did not work me This boots are beautiful. Wish they would have worked for me. They don't make an extra wide calf and no matter how hard I tried, my calves did not fit in a full. They are well made and beautiful though.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Love everything but the zippers When I bought these last summer, I was thrilled. They are comfortable enough to wear all day and fit me so well. They look amazing on. BUT, the zippers are horrible. The bottom of the zipper around my ankle has been "wonky" for months and then yesterday I put them on and was zipper was messed up around my calf. I was stuck in them and couldn't unzip them I was worried that I would have to be cut out! With help, I managed to get out of them . I looked at the zipper on the other boot and it seems to be doing the same thing in the same spot. These boots fit me perfectly. I have never strained the zipper to put them on. Very disappointed. :(

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from These boots are to die for I absolutely love these boots, from the rainbow sole to the zipper twist. They are hard to put on, but they're comfortable, don't pinch, and they tip my foot in towards my big toe (inside of foot against the horse) which relieves my ankle pain from rolling my ankles to the outside too many times. I've had them for a month and have not had quality issues. I did oil the zipper to help it glide.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great schooling dressage boot! I’m a professional trainer and I have to ride multiple horses a day! It’s so nice to have comfortable dressage boots that break in easy, amazing feeling sole, and is stylish to boot!! Pun intended!!!
    Date published: 2020-06-16
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The most comfortable boot I’ve ever worn. I’m a professional coach and trainer so I was looking for a boot that I could wear all day with minimal discomfort. I have had these boots for three years now and they are still comfortable! They have held up remarkably well despite the wear and tear. I absolutely recommend.
    Date published: 2020-05-22
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Comfortable Boot! First time Vortex owner but have owned two other pairs of Volants. Decided to give these a try because I even bought a pair of Parlanti’s that didn’t fit right! These actually fit me quite well and I have been riding in them for a solid 3 months now. I saw all the other reviews on the zippers, but knock on wood, I haven’t had that issue at all. They seem to fit me well! The Volants did too, maybe I just have that “perfect leg” to fit these standard sizes Ariat does. But for schooling and every day use, they are serving me well! I have always liked the more tennis shoe style and comfort! I don’t do any barn chores in them, riding only. I have ridden several horses a day in them too. So far, so good! A bit pricy for an every day work boot! But they are nice and no break in time for me!
