I've had my eye on these for quite a while, and I'm so thrilled ot have finally ordered them! They're amazingly comfortable, to the point where I'd recommend them alongside other comfort brands
or Born. I ordered brown oiled rowdy is more textured than it looks in the picture; it's not a smooth leather at all but has some pebbling. I've only worn the boots
a couple times but the color is already starting to crease and crackle most pleasingly across the instep and toe. Great for that comfortable, rustic, worn in look.I had a heckuva time pulling these on the first time, even by cowboy boot standards, they were tough, but each time they've loosened up just a bit, to the point where now they're perfect. It still takes a fair bit of effort to pull them on and off, but that's how a cowboy boot should fit. There's no struggle, just effort. My feet are on the wideish side around the toe, and I ordered my usual size, 6.5, with great success. I think someone with an especially narrow foot might find these too wide, in fact. The heel is loose, as a cowboy boot should fit. The stitching is lovely, and absolutely impeccable. My calves are relatively large, and the bootshaft is still a bit on the loose side. You should be able to fit skinny jeans
down in these without a problem! The toe on these is a bit boxier than I'd expected, but not at all stumpy. My other pair of boots
, and they have a much pointier toe, so this was something to get used to! I quite like it though.In summary, if you already know and understand how cowboy boots
should fit and feel, you'll be aware of what to expect. You'll also be pleasantly surprised by the padded, well supported footbed. If you've never worn similar boots
before, though, do your research so you know what you're getting into. I love, love, love my new Ariat boots
and can't wait to wear them several times a week. They're so comfortable, I can easily wear them for a day walking around the city or a long trek out in the country. They're the perfect everything boot!
