Crowne Pro Field Boot Zip
English Chaps/Boots/Helmets

For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: Ariat
Model: Crowne Pro Field Boot Zip
Category: English Chaps/Boots/Helmets

Purchase: I bought these boots online, new, for the retail price which I think was 379.00 plus shipping, so the total was close to 400.00.

Likes: I like the fit of the boot, it is a nice, tight, close fit, especially in the ankle area, which I think is the difference that shows between a nice boot and some of the less expensive boots. The boot is also the correct height - it shrunk down about 1/2 inch once the leather softened up a bit, so the height was perfect. the top of the boot is now just below the top of my knee cap when Im sitting down with my leg bent. the cheap boots shrink down too much and look too short on most people.

Dislikes: I really dont like the leather quality on the boots. I ride just about every day, I live in a humid climate (in the summer) and the boots did not hold up very well. I cleaned the boots off after I rode, I wiped the sweat off, and re-conditioned them, and they still wore a hole right through the leather at the inside of my calf in only 2 months of use. Unfortunately I think this boot is about what you get nowadays though, for this price! I dont know that there are other boots in this price range that would do any better.

Quality: Too bad Ariat is using Chinese leather! I wish it was better quality. The leather in the calf area is thinner (not lined) than at the rest of the boot, where it is re-enforced with a liner of thicker leather. I understand their thought of making the boot close contact, but the leather should (I think?) last longer than 2 months. The leather does not shine up very well, if that is a consideration for purchase. The zipper held up very well- but Im careful about just pulling it up fast- FYI if you blow out the zipper, Ariat has a repair service to fix it, but they charge 80 dollars plus shipping. I phoned them about the holes and they do not consider the holes to be a defect, so thats just the way it is.

Summary: Bottom line is that Im going to wear these boots with the holes for the rest of this season! (what the heck, the judges wont see my calves..unless I fall off and then it wont matter.. LOL) Ive already up-graded to a different manufacturer (for 450.00) and I think the new boots will last longer- I will report back on them later if they do. (no chinese leather- theyre from Italy) I rated these boots a 3 because the fit was very good but the leather was not so good.
