This was my first Ariat Fatbaby. I own several pairs of traditional cowboy boots and find most of them uncomfortable to wear because I have wide feet with bunions. This boot has a round toe with ample space. These boots are so comfortable and easy to wear. Many cowboy boots have stiff leather that takes time to break in. The Ariat Fatbaby boots are supple and mold to your feet. The built in arch also gives great support, making these so comfy. I found the size accurate.

I was disappointed in this item. I have Ariat paddock boots (I am a rider) and was disappointed in the overall quality of the Fatbaby - not the same quality. Leather was poor quality. The concept of a "western fashion boot" is there but more follow-through on quality is needed. Size was a bit snug.

These boots are the cutest ever and so comfortable, with plenty of toe room. This is my second pair and probably not my last.

My first pair of cowboy boots (at age 59)! Boots need only a few hours to break in. Very comfortable. Attractive. I've received many positive comments.

Love my Ariat boots! I have a pair for every occasion. Strongly recommend them for any horse person or non-horse person! They are comfortable and stylish! Can't wait to get my next pair. Love Zappos as well! I have never had such great customer service. Keep up the good work guys! You always make shopping a pleasant experience, and that is very much appreciated!

Love these--they're my 3rd pair of Fatbaby boots. My only complaint is the uncomfortable white tag on pull-up straps. (You can see it in the picture) If I'm not wearing knee socks, these tags scratch my calves. I'm sure Ariat's trying to get a little more advertising in, but make it soft!

These boots rock! So comfy and easy to break in and so durable. I normally wear an 8.5 or 9 and went with the 8.5 this time and really happy with my choice because they do have some flexibility for breaking in.

This is the first pair of Ariat boots I have purchased. I love these boots! I had no idea a pair of boots could be so incredibly comfortable the first time one puts them on. Not only are they comfortable, the embroidery work is quite nice. The construction and fit of these boots are also excellent.

Really cute, very supportive and comfy. Ran true to size. I would've kept these, but I decided I preferred a more traditional cowboy boot style and couldn't quite justify keeping both. Kind of wish I had, though. Also, I'm 48 and wondered if this might be a "younger" style (not that I tend to care too much, but all the same...).

This is the third pair of Fatbaby boots I've bought. I got them for riding the motorcycle, but they're so comfortable, I wear them at work or even to hike. The black ones don't have as much tread on the sole as the brown ones I had. Once again, Zappos delivery miraculously speedy.

Great casual boot. Very comfortable. I wore around my house for several days before deciding to keep them. I get a lot of compliments on them. They feel like that old pair of shoes you don't want to ever throw away, but they don't look like that at all. I ended up ordering a 9.5 (I'm either a 9.5 or a 10 depending on the shoe/heel).

Wow! These boots are terrific! They have a little 'cowboy' look to them - the pink stitching is super cute, but not so much that you feel like you can't wear them if you aren't riding a horse. The height is just right - not too tall, but not so short that they are ankle boots either. But the big thing is they are so comfortable! From the minute I put them on, they are flexible, lots of arch and foot support and the uppers are supple and don't 'scrape' your legs. I had ordered Frye Engineer boots and sent them back because they were just too stiff and didn't fit well. I am so glad I ordered these instead. They ran perfectly true to size for me and are very comfortable across the instep as well. I can't wait to wear them with a skirt or leggings as well as jeans!

This was the first time I purchased cowboy boots. I am so happy with my purchase. I ordered my usual 7 1/2. They fit great with generous width, comfortable right from the get go. I like the brown with pink and the round toe. Now on the lookout for the black when 7 1/2 is back in stock.

This boot runs BIG. I usually wear a size 8 and it was swimming on me. The 7.5 was slipping off my heel as well. I think this runs big, and it is a little wide. I loved the style and quality, too bad it didn't fit.

This is my first pair of Fatbaby, and they do run a half size large. I wear a 7½ and size 7 fits great. A bit difficult to first get on, but once on, they feel great. I got another pair in the brown omber; haven't worn them outside yet, they seem a bit smaller than the black, need to decide if I am going to keep them or not. I love my Fatbaby boots!

I have had these boots for over a month and absolutely love them! They are very comfortable. If you do order these, make sure you check the sole to see if it is stirrup friendly. Some of the colors aren't!
