Heritage Field Boot (No Zipper)
English Chaps/Boots/Helmets

For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: Ariat
Model: Heritage Field Boot (No Zipper)
Category: English Chaps/Boots/Helmets

Purchase: -Paid $100 online for boots on EBay

Likes: -Seem to be well built -Calf runs small which is good for those of us with slim calves but this could be a negative for anyone looking for a regular size in the calf -Footbed runs true to size -Contours leg and ankle nicely

Dislikes: -Leather is very stiff, VERY painful to break in -Leather seems like it will scratch easily -For some, the calf running small would be a dislike in this category

Quality: -Quality seems tough, probably why the boot is SO hard to break in -Really like that this boot is fully lined

Summary: Bought these boots for $100 online as my old Ariat Champions were wearing out. I loved my Ariat Champions and found the leather difference to the Heritage was a downgrade. Too bad they don't still make the original Champions. Though the leather is super shiny, it seems like the Heritage boots will scratch easily and have kind of wrinkled where I use a boot jack to pull them off. They are very slim in the calf (I take a slim calf and bought a regular calf ... and they fit). Footbed runs about true to size. Height also seems to be true to size however the boots are VERY stiff so I don't expect them to drop much. I planned on some blisters and bruises from breaking in a new pair of tall boots but these are really awful to break in!! I am going to work on them with leather conditioners and hope that it helps!! I like that they are fully lined like my old Ariat Champions. Really hoping that these boots break in shortly and without destroying my feet further because they seem well built, just very stiff right now.
