Category: Western Chaps/Boots/Hats

Purchase: Got them "used," as in worn once, off of eBay. Paid like $85? for them. New at the tack shop they're about $150. They're 8.5 womens, B width

Likes: SO COMFY!! I love these shoes. They're great for riding in and the soles are nice and flat so I don't feel like my foot will get stuck in them. I love the color, they're black with blue uppers. The tops are not irritating either. You can get away with short socks, ride, and not feel like you have a hole in your calf. They're not supper narrow in the toe, which is great! I have wide-ish feet and my feet have never felt smashed. They feel really balanced as shoes go. They're also not heavy. I can't say enough about these boots! I LOVE THEM!!

Dislikes: At first, they were too flat with not enough support in them and made my feet sore when I had to walk a lot in them. Bought a cheap pair ($10) of squishy inserts and now they are the most comfortable thing EVER! $10 fix is SO worth it. And now we're back to the flat soles. It's good and bad. Bad since I wiped out in these boots from not having enough traction. Don't try wearing them and walking on hidden ice. It's just a bad idea. Or really any slick surface. You'll have no grip. The only other thing is that on the inside where the black meets the blue upper, my roper stirrup rubbed away the stitching. There's a matching gappy spot on each boot. I think that may just be my stirrups though.

Quality: Considering I am the Destroyer of Boots, they've held up really well. I wouldn't have expected anything less from Ariat. I have literally worn them to death. They have holes now D: Sunshine, dirt, rain, snow, mud, whatever. Pretty much every day wear for the last 3 years. Other brands have lasted 6 months to a year. I did clean and polish them semi-regularly. I imagine the would last longer with someone who only wore them to ride in, and not every single day. Also someone who didn't tromp through all manner of footing too.

Summary: LOVE THEM! Desperate horsewoman seeking another pair of awesome boots to love her feet back. I would wear them everywhere if I could. So so so sad I've worn holes into them :( I will totally get another pair! Or two!
