So happy with my boots! These are my first cowboy boots and I love them! Based on reviews alone, I expected at least a little break in period, but honestly there was none! I can only hope that they'll get even more comfortable. I was nervous about buying cowboy boots since I have pretty wide (but short) feet, and relatively thick calves, but I had 0 problem at all. These boots slipped right on - easiest time I have ever had with any boot. the foot felt a little big in the heel at first, but I still think ordering true to size (I'm an 8, and that's what I got) was the right call - even after two days the boots seem to have molded to my feet. I also can't say enough about Zappos' customer service! I read reviews, but i was still skeptical that it would be that great...but I was wrong! I placed my order at 11pm on a Wednesday, received notification at 11am on Thursday that they had been shipped, and they were waiting on my doorstep when I got home from work on Friday. I wasn't expecting them for days! It was a wonderful surprise. I have nothing but good things to say about Zappos and Ariat! I've been raving about both all weekend!

So bummed! I really wanted to love these boots. So easy to get on and it felt like walking on air, but the calf width seemed huge on me. They looked kind of funny with bare legs. I didn't think my calves were that slender. Maybe okay if I was only wearing them with tucked in jeans, but I had planned on using them with dresses and skirts too. Had to return them. If they offered a narrow calf width in this style, I would buy them again.

The most comfortable "right out of the box" boots I've ever had! I wear cowboy boots every day while standing eight or more hours, and these are the go to boots when I want to be comfy and fashionable!

I LOVE this boot. Fits great over jeggings, under jeans, and with skirts, etc... I have never needed a shoe in a whole size smaller and I normally wear a 7, but this fit perfectly in a 6. Of course Zappos was awesome when I returned for an exchange and I had by boots before I could blink!

Love these boots! Ordered 2 pairs of Justins and had to send them back because they were just so uncomfortable! The Ariats are like walking on air! The built in arch supports are amazing! They will be perfect for my Halloween costume and marching around Disney all day!

I absolutely love these! these. I have been looking for cowboy boots for while (vintage ones, mostly on eBay, with no luck) and these fit the bill. They are not all shiny and new-looking, but they will wear well and will keep looking better and better. I am usually a size 9½/10. After reading reviews I ordered these in a 9 and they fit perfectly. They are super comfortable, really cute, and a great brown color.

I borrowed these boots from my sister who had them in black and wore them for an entire weekend walking around Fort Worth! They were unbelievably comfortable! I knew then I had to get myself a pair and decided on the brown, they are beautiful! The contrast in the stitching is so pretty! I wear a 9 so I ordered a 9 and with some light socks they fit perfectly! I plan to wear them with dresses and to tuck my jeans into them! I think I'm going to order a pair of the black ones also! You won't regret buying these and Zappos' shipping rocks!

Love. I've gotten my money's worth out of these boots and will certainly buy myself another pair. I wore them all winter - short skirts, long skirts, jeans...didn't matter. They felt awesome, looked beautiful on, and am planning wearing them this summer, too. My new favorite pair of boots! I ordered a 1/2 size smaller than I normally wear, and probably could have done with a full size smaller, but I don't care! They are absolutely wonderful.

I love these boots. The stitching matches almost perfectly the color of the tan leather, so the stitching is not really pink. The boots are comfortable in my usual size 8, but the heel feels just a bit loose. So I'll try the half size smaller to see whether they feel more secure.

This are the coolest looking boots ever! Unfortunately, my feet are too wide for them to fit properly. I am really disappointed that they didn\'t work out for me. If you don\'t have wide feet, I would highly recommend these boots - very pretty.

I love my Ariat Heritage Western Boots SKU#7504013. These boots are very sexy and classy for a cowgirl (cowboy boot). They are also great to dance in. You can wear these with Jeans, a dress, a skirt, so the boots are very versatile. The special design on the upper part of the boot is very pretty and very feminine. The heel height is perfect and they are very comfortable. Good luck, you will be very happy you have bought these Ariat Heritage Western Boots. I'm glad I did.

Love, love, love the boots! They are so comfortable and were right out of the box! I have bunions and flat/wide feet, so my feet are very picky. They have great arch support. I wish all my shoes/boots fit like these. I normally wear a 6.5, but had tried Ariat on in a store, so I knew to order up a 1/2 size. I wore them in New Orleans for two days straight and probably walked no less than 10 miles in them with no discomfort. They look equally cute with jeans and a skirt.

I love these boots! They were recommended to me because I have chunky calves, and they are a terrific fit. My left foot is somewhat larger than the right due to a lymph fluid build up, so I had a cobbler stretch the left boot a bit... $3. They have broken in quickly. Other reviewers were right, the pink stitching on the brown is very attractive and not girly at all. I will get another pair! I ordered the Ariat: Heritage Western J Toe but I am returning them because they seem to run a little smaller, and the end of the foot is more narrow and won't work on my left foot. But they were very lovely boots and I wish I could keep them!

A beautiful and comfortable boot. The leather is very soft, so make sure they fit tight across the mid-step, because they're going to stretch.

SUPER boot. Another outstanding Ariat product, I'm no spring chicken and have foot problems. As a teacher, I spend most of the day on my feet. These were phenomenal right out of the box. I have flat feet, and the supportive arch is a dream to wear. I look forward to casual Fridays, just so I can wear these boots with my jeans. They're durable, well made and stylish. I will say that I think Ariat boots tend to run a hair large. I needed to return both my boots and my daughter's (last year) for a smaller size. Purchasing and returning from Zappos couldn't be easier, though. They've always upgraded my shipping - I had my new boots the day after I called to say I was returning the first pair. I'm not a huge mail order fan, but I'm a loyal Zappos fan. (PS - another plug for Ariat: Both of my daughters ride horses, and we've only ever purchased Ariat boots. My 23 year old daughter has had her Ariat show boots since she was in eighth grade! They still look great.)

I agree with another reviewer. I wish I had sent them back sooner; they are very stiff around the ankle and hit the ankle bone constantly making them very uncomfortable in that regard. Otherwise, they were fine. Right now, they are sitting in my closet and haven’t been worn at all this season.

These boots are perfect. They are comfortable but do need a little breaking in. I wore them for short periods the first few times and now they are fine for wearing longer. The color brown is very neutral and the stitching has some white and blue thread. They look the best with blue jeans. If you don't tuck your jeans in, then I would save your money. These boots are made to be seen! I feel like a five year old who wants to wear my cowgirl boots everyday, but I prefer mixing them once a week or so. I'm a boot lover and want to wear them all. These are actually my favorite. I do have a high instep and they were a little tight across the top of my right foot for a few wearings.
