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 w/ FREE Backpack is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very sturdy and well made The boots are well made and look nice. I have put them on but not used to ride in yet. I ordered a full calf which is what I took in the Volant boots. I had to return and exchange for a Wide. The Wide calf fits the way the Volant full calf fit for the same foot size. So it runs small. The foot on the Volant was big on me and the same is true for the Vortex. So I think only the calf runs small. I always order a half size up on the foot because the calf is wider.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent fit and quality I ordered two pairs of Tredstep and this Ariat to see which fit my needs best. This was by far the best of the three but I ended up going with Tredstep Donatello as it was the mid-priced boot. Had I not been on a tight budget I would have purchased these. High quality and a very comfortable foot bed. If I was to come up with a negative it would be that I am not a huge fan of the zipper design as it is not traditional and you cannot get in and out of these boots quickly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't give up! They're so modern and stylish, of course you'll want them. But the first time you try them on, it's IMPOSSIBLE to get into the footbed or get the zipper shut. (Are the people at Ariat for real with that giant useless shoe horn??) But don't give up! Once you wrangle them on, wear them a little around the store or your house and realize they are sooo comfortable. If you ride in them, there's no chance you will want to return them -- it's amazing actually -- the heels just melt down. The next time you go to put them on _piece of cake_. Sold!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sizing is terrible I love buying Ariat boots because I know exactly what size I fit into. Unfortunately these are not sized at all like the rest of their boots. The tall/reg calf is much too small around the calf and they don't offer a full/tall in my shoe size. These boots need a completely different sizing chart - unfortunately when I checked it against the sizing chart used for the Volant boots I do fit into, I saw that it's the same exact chart. If you're ordering, expect at least of a 1/4 in. less around the calf than what you'd normally have from Ariat tall boots. That being said, the boots are beautiful.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous and no break in time I have really tender ankles that blister easily, so I prefer boots that don't zip down the ankle. I wore these for 3 hours the first day with no blisters at all. They weren't hard to get on, and they don't look clunky through the foot. I really like the Spanish high-cut top, and with the added swoosh of elastic, they really elongate your leg.
