Model: Heritage II Paddock boot
Category: English Chaps/Boots/Helmets
Purchase: I purchased these boots from Dover Saddlery in Maryland for $100. I purchased the brown model with laces because I liked the style better than the model with the zipper. The main reason for this purchase was to spare my tall show boots from further wear.
Likes: These boots are extremely comfortable! I have a very high arch and had no trouble getting into these boots whatsoever. I did not even have to loosen up all of the laces to do so. These boots have the 4LR which provide generous arch support as well as excellent wicking capabilities. I also have a wide foot and there was plenty of room in the toe box. There are elastic bands at the top of the boot towards the back to provide enough give around your ankle. From a profile view, you can hardly see the elastic. There is ample tread on the sole and I felt secure with them on in the hay loft as well as in the wash stall. They are also stylish enough to wear in the winter with a pair of jeans.
Dislikes: I do not have anything negative to say about these boots except the laces are a little too long. You have to double tie them to take up the slack.
Quality: With a name like Ariat, how can you go wrong? These are quality boots that will last a lifetime if taken care of properly.
Summary: I am very glad that I have purchased these boots and look forward to wearing them for a long, long time. You will not be disappointed if you purchase these boots. They are almost as comfortable, in my opinion, as a tennis shoe.
