from Reno, NV

Just bought my 3rd pair of Ariat Heritage Western boots and they are just as perfect as the first two. Fits beautifully, red color is gorgeous and leather is soft and gentle on the feet. I have high arches and the boots are very comfortable. Hope they come out in purple some day! When I bought my first pair of Ariats, a cowboy told me to buy a size smaller than my usual shoe size in western boots, so I bought size 9 and it fits perfectly. Do not know if this is a 'general rule' but it works for me. I received an email to write a review but twice I tried and it disappeared before I finished. I phoned your office and they suggested trying this way. In case you receive 2 other reviews, this is the reason why. Judith Crillo, Reno, NV. (I love Ariat products so am eager to share my appreciation!)

Brands I'd also recommend: In boots I do not know other brands, but in regular shoes I find Enzo Angiolini work well

These are the best! They are so comfortable and that is what matters to me along with style! I am a diabetic and it is important to wear the correct shoes. These fit the bill! So cute! I get compliments from friend and strangers alike every time that I wear them. They make me happy! No break in period-wore them all day right out of the box! Thanks Ariat! I sometimes wear a 10 due to my long 2nd toe, but with the point I got the 9.5 and it fits great! Room enough for thick socks. Runs a little large.

These boots are super comfy and super sassy! These are my second pair of Ariat boots, and I love them. I have bad feet, and these boots are always comfortable. They look great with jeans or dresses.

Revisiting an earlier review where I stated the leather was a little stiff, upon just the second wearing around the house I've noticed the leather is softening. Boot is extremely comfortable but I also noticed my foot was sliding back and forth in the boot as I walked - probably means I really need 1/2 size smaller, but then I have a somewhat narrow foot too, normal sizing may be fine for someone with a wider foot. I did go ahead and order a half size smaller which I think will fit my narrow feet better. Also I'm not happy that this particular boot was made in China. I have some Ariats boots that were made in Mexico, but not this one and normally I try to avoid buying anything made in China but these boots are too pretty and too comfy to pass up. Ariat brand boots are the most comfortable and best fitting of any of the boots I've tried which includes Lucchese, Justin, Tony Lama and Frye.

I love these boots. The red color is a very nice shade and definitely eye catching. I ordered my usual size 9 and they fit without any modification needed. They are very comfortable right out of the box. The leather is thick and a little stiff but I am guessing that it will soften with use. Overall these are a good value, fit and comfort for the money. Plus I really appreciate the rounded toe on these boots.

These are fabulous! I bought them for myself for my 62nd birthday! I get compliments each time I wear them. The bonuse is they are the most comfortable boot (or shoes for that matter) I have ever had on my feet. I am a size 7.5 and that is what I ordered. They arrived quickly. The color is true red and I love them.

Just what I wanted! This was an impulse buy for me and out of the box for me in red! I'm usually conservative but to root for my ball team at the park I just had to have these boots! I had previously ordered the Ariat Roper in the distressed brown. Had to go for an 8 wide in those as they ran narrow. These red boots didn't come in wide so I ordered 8 Med. and they literally fit perfectly out of the box. I ordered them on Tuesday night and got them Thursday. I put them on and wore them that very day all evening at the ballgame and they were so comfortable. No kidding! One lady wanted them and wanted to know where I got them and if they were comfortable. I love them! Now I have to get the nerve to wear them in an every day situation. Thanks, Zappos! You're super!

Love these red boots! I bought them in Cheyenne, WY, and was able to try them on before purchase. I took 1/2 size smaller then normal. Not only are they the cutest, but they are comfortable enough to wear every day (not that I do). Lots of compliments, too!

I bought these boots for our daughter's birthday gift. She was celebrating her Sweet 16! As her Mother, I owned a pair when I was her age. Everyone recommended "Ariat" and so when she opened the box, she wanted to wear them right that minute! She would have slept in them if she was allowed to. She wore the new boots to school the very next day...all day and when she came home, she said they were the most comfortable boots and she wears them all the time. My only wish was that Zappos had a video and gave an explanation about western boots and their toe measurements. I looked up Ariat's website and watched the "boot size and fit" videos and I read about the R toe vs. buying a J toe, etc. Trust me! I'm a New England girl and this was all "Cowboy" talk, but it helps to know. Now I'm looking at Ariat clogs.

Brands I'd also recommend: I love Ariat and the quality of their leather. We are purchasing their clogs next.

Odd. I have chubby and muscular calves, and these felt like big rubber boots around the calves. My ankles were nearly sloshing around in there - despite a snug fit. I only took an 8.5, and if I was going to keep these, I'd size up to a 9. But the calves are so ludicrously big I guess I'll move on entirely.

I absolutely love these boots. I am not a rider but I purchased these out of love for the style, as well as the bright red color! The color in person is not quite as bright as in the photo, but it is still sufficiently eye-catching. I ordered my usual 7.5, and they fit perfectly. I have slightly narrow feet and these don't feel wide on me. They also don't need any break-in time. I am extremely happy with my purchase! These boots are comfortable, and seem extremely durable. Not to mention the fantastic color and design!

First about the size...I wear a 10.5 Narrow or an 11 Slim. I purchased these boots in a 10 Medium. With the long slim toe and an added orthodic, the 10 fits perfectly. Now about comfort, they are great!! And finally, this is a Beautiful boot!! Also, thanks to Zappos for their liberal return policy because I started with a size 11. Yes, I recommend these boots!!

These boots are so comfortable. I've had a pair of the same in another color for years and wanted to rock the red Wonder Woman look...and was surprised to find that the red deertan was even softer and more comfortable out of the box than my previous beloved pair. Supportive even on long walks - only my barefoot running shoes beat these for comfort. Love them!

First boot I ordered was too large...went down a full size and now fits quite well. But, I do have very narrow feet so that might have been the reason. Also, the outside of the left boot hits my ankle so I have to wrap a bandage around the ankle. I'm hoping with wear, that it will soften. The boots are super darling and I am so glad I bought them. Also, they are sold cheaper at some retailers in Texas; however and this is a big however, Zappos gladly takes returns, no charge, up to a year. That is well worth the few extra dollars I had to pay. One other comment...I bought this same pair from Zappos in brown. Twice I received scratched leather (not Distressed leather but scratched). Anyway, Zappos was great about taking them both back and gave me a coupon because of my inconvenience. I will, of course, continue shopping at Zappos!

I am 65 and I have terrible feet. Big bunions, wide feet. So when I saw these boots, red cowboy boots, I said they'll never fit but I'm going to try. I ordered them a full size bigger than normal because they didn't have my regular size. I'm here to say these boots are incredible. They are so comfortable. I wear them without socks, all day. These boots fulfill an old gal's fantasy of wearing red cowboy boots and looking good in them. Friends ask where I got them, so I tell them Zappos, my dears.

I love these boots! You gotta be a little wild to wear 'em, but they are so cute! They make me think of when I was a little girl and had a pair of red ones. They are comfy and I love being able to pull them on and go. Great boot, comfy, and cute!

This is my first cowboy boot so I'm not sure how to purchase for correct size. I wear a size 8 shoe, ordered the size 8 1/2 boot and couldn't even get it on my foot, and I have narrow feet. I have reordered a 9 1/2. Hope that works as they are beautiful red boots!
