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!

Looking for some really nice boots for my birthday round-up...stylish and will be able to wear them again and again. Tight to get on right at first but the pop into the boot was just right.

These boots are so comfortable. From the minute I put them on I loved them. The top of the boot is a little wide. If you are wearing them under tight jeans they may not fit right.

It was a bit of an impulse to buy a pair of red boots, but I am happy I did. As with all my Ariat boots, they were extremely comfortable right out of the box. The leather is thick and sturdy (not slouchy) but still soft and supple. The red is just slightly deeper than a bright red, which blends very nicely with the variety of reds in my wardrobe. These are really nice boots. They run true to size, And I think they are an excellent value. I am very pleased with them.

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.

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.

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!

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.

I might have gotten a defective pair of these because the left one fit beautifully whereas the right one dug into my ankle so badly I felt like I injured myself just trying on the boots. Ouch! A beautiful color and the boots seemed well made. They seemed true to size, as I often have worn a 7.5 in boots and that seemed to be a good-fitting size for these. They even had a fair amount of cushioning in the insole, something important to me that doesn't seem as important to other customers, since I rarely see them mention it. How disappointing. Although maybe I have learned that I wear a 7.5 in Ariat.

So disappointed. I have been buying this same boot from Ariat for years. Now they've cut corners and made the boot more cheaply. It was the perfect leather softness, at purchase. Now it is made of stiffer leather and I doubt if it will ever soften up. It was the perfect rich darker red and tooled detailing now it has dumbed down simpler more boring red with less detailing on the shaft. It's as if the bean counters told the designers to cut corners and make a stiffer, cheaper boot. They had a rare boot -- comfortable out of the box. Now they messed with perfection and may have lost me as a return customer to this boot. I am a size 10 and hard to fit. This red boot was my signature boot. Fix this Ariat management. Your cheap cost cutting has messed with a classic.

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.
