English Chaps/Boots/Helmets

For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: Ariat
Model: Hanover Zip Paddock Boot
Category: English Chaps/Boots/Helmets

Purchase: Stateline Tack, $140, free shipping.

Likes: As of now, Hanover is the only Ariat riding / paddock boot that offers a generous toe box and arch clearance for those of us with a wider forefoot and higher instep. For those of you who are wearing Dansko clogs with half chaps because you can't squeeze comfortably into Ariat women's boots, try this model. Contrary to logic, I found that the Zip version is more roomy than the Lace version. Very little break-in time required. I recommend a half-size larger than what you normally wear to allow for sufficient toe clearance. Podiatrists say that, for riding (and hiking) boots as well as athletic shoes, you should allow a full thumb's width between your longest toe and the tip of the boot while bearing full weight. That might seem like a lot of clearance, but you'd be surprised how your feet get pushed forward in boots when riding or running. Your toes should never touch the front of your boot (or running shoe); if they do, you're in a boot / shoe that's too small for you.

Dislikes: N/A

Quality: Typical Ariat quality; rugged yet refined leather. Expect them to last - my friend has brutalized hers daily for 2 years without any leather maintenance and, although they're scuffed and faded, they've held their shape and are still supportive.

Summary: Recommended.
