First pair but not my last. I'll admit that this is my first pair of Ariats and for that matter, western styled boots in general. I started off looking for something that had a squared toe with a style that could go from casual Friday to weekend wear easily so I thought I'd give these a try. The first thing I noticed when taking them out of the box is that these are some seriously sturdy boots, heavy leather and well made; the shaft is supple and soft but is a slightly lighter color than the base of the boot, this isn't a problem, just an observation. Since they are a tall boot without a zipper they are a bit of work to put on but once on they fit perfectly, with two caveats; the first is that all the reviews are right, count on ordering a full size smaller than you normally wear; I'm not sure what it is with boot makers but they all seem to run large. The second is that, yes, they fit like a glove, which is to say that the padded insole is nicely contoured and actually offers a degree of arch support and that the boot is not voluminous like a work boot. I have a relatively thin foot and these fit me perfectly, I can see that if you have a wider foot you may want to think about ordering the wider option. The real test of these Ariats is how they feel walking around. They're great. While I may not be on my feet twelve hours a day they were completely comfortable all day at the office whether walking or at the desk, this last part is key since they were not overly hot, a concern I had with such a high boot. They also look great with khakis or jeans, subtle enough that they don't scream boot but with a distinct style that says they're more than the plain shoes others are wearing on the elevator. At the end of the day when I slipped them off there isn't so much a feeling of relief but a sense appreciation. These are really great boots, I'm glad I took the chance with them; try them, you'll likely be impressed. I know I am.

Love the style, but the there is absolutely no ankle support, which is odd for a boot. It's so flimsy it requires every bit of your foot's muscles/tendons/skeleton to keep it on.

I got these boots for my son aged 22 for Christmas thinking he would like them as an every day kind of boot. well they are now his dress boots. He likes the look of them with jeans. so am happy he likes them and I had made a good choice.

These boots are great looking! I bought a size 12EE, which were just a little too big. So I thought A 11½EE would be perfect. They do not offer that size in this style. I went with a 11½D and they fit decently. They are a little tight so I am not sure what to do. I may have find different boots. Regardless, these are very nice boots and I highly recommend buying this style. Zappos is great, they went way beyond working with me on this order, thank you! I will recommend Zappos to everybody, they are a great company to business with. Excellent customer service! Thanks, Zappos, team.

These are very comfortable boots. They look great with jeans and because of their roughened worn look no worries about scuffing them up. The upper part is soft suede leather which is a bit hard to slip into but also easy to slip out of. Glad I got 'em!

Awesome boots! After reading other reviews, ordered 1/2 size smaller than what I normally wear (10), and they fit perfect and only took a couple of days to really form to my feet.

Great boot! I bought them for riding my motorcycle and for wearing out on the town. I live in Philly and you might think these are too "cowboyish" but they work great with a pair of jeans. I have gotten a ton of compliments. They do run a touch large. I usually wear a 14. I ordered a 13 and they are still just a little loose. Otherwise great boots! You won't regret this purchase.

They look even better in person. The one thing I hate about new shoes/boots is the 'new' look. Ariat has taken care of this for you already. Right out of the box they look worn. Looks great with jeans, but like someone else said, I found them a lot cheaper at a local Cavenders. A definite recommendation.

I bought these boots for motorcycle purposes, but I also wear them at my wife's barn. Like all Ariat they take a week or so to break in, but once you're there they fit like a dream. The rustic look definitely adds some attitude. These boots fit true to size and width and the sole is well cushioned. We have a winner.

These boots are rock solid and wonderfully comfortable. I love them to death, and they look incredible with a nice pair of dark, boot cut jeans, but boot cut is not required to rock these durable boots. They do run big, but that's fine, and I noticed that with large feet, it makes you feet look more proportional, if that makes any sense. What I mean is that, other shoes can make large feet look way too big, and look really awkward, but these do the opposite. They use the "big" as a feature and make your feet look great. Heads up though, I got these for less at my local Cavenders boot city, and someone was there to fit them and talk me through picking a pair. I guess what I am saying is, if you have a local one (I'm in the middle of Texas, and we have 3 of them in my city) check it out, otherwise, Zappos is the way to go.

I love these boots. They were recommended as being very comfortable and stylish. Now that I\'ve worn them a couple of weeks...I agree 100%. One thing to note as another reviewer mentioned, they run BIG. I usually wear a 10.5 but after a couple tries, found that I wear a 9.5 in these.

Boots are great! My husband loves them. Says they are the best "walking" boots he has ever had. He wears boots to work everyday and we usually spend a couple hundred dollars, sometimes $1000 and these boots were just as nice as the others. Would get them again without question.

These boots are definite favorite of mine. They are a great pair of boots for daily wear around town. They have a weathered look so you don’t have to worry about them getting messed up, it just adds to the character. They are definitely a casual style boot, not at all dressy looking and best with jeans. They are extremely comfortable, I can wear them all day with no problem. I ordered my usual size and they fit perfectly.

I ordered these boots for my husband. He usually wears a wide but I ordered a regular width. He LOVED them but they were a little too tight. We sent them back but found them at an actual boot store. He tried on the same size and they too were a little tight... Just when we were leaving the sales associate offered to steam the boots to stretch them and it made a huge difference! These boots are sexy with jeans! Love them on him!

These boots have been great! They are very comfortable and tough. I ordered my normal size for shoes and had to return for half size smaller with these, but love em'. Zappos got me the new pair in less than 24 hours. This was my first purchase from Zappos and they really went the extra mile for me. This is a great purchase all the way around!

My first "cowboy boot". I didn't want the "narrow toe" variety of boot, so I went with this one (I subsequently also got the Heritage Roper boot from Ariat). Ariat makes lightweight and durable boots. Following the advice of others, I sized down a 1/2 size (I wear an 8 1/2 so I ordered a size 8). Perfect fit. If you clean these boots up, you can wear them out on the town. Otherwise, they are perfect all-around boots for working in the yard, etc. The soft leather uppers are a great feature (they are called "Bomber Leather" in their marketing literature), and I wish they offered that option on their other styles of boots. Very highly recommended for first-time boot buyers, since they look great, have excellent comfort, and are extremely affordable.

The Ariat Rambler is a very good boot. The quality and looks are very exceptional. This boot's sole is of very high quality, and I plan on getting many years of use from this particular boot. One should take in to consideration that they run a little bit big, maybe a half size.

Perfect - Well made, comfortable boots, top quality materials and construction. Nice styling and details. They do run a little large. I'm a size 13.5 (which no one makes) so these were a perfect fit. The look is classic, cool and sexy.

This is the first pair of boots of this style I have ever owned. They are comfortable. I walked around Epcot at Disney World in them for about 6 hours one evening with no complaints (and they weren't even broken in yet). Just make sure you buy them a size smaller than normal. They might be a little snug at first but they are going to stretch considerably.

Good Summer Boots. These boots are awesome. They ARE sized a little funky. Not exactly big or small...Just kind of an odd shape. I think it’s the toe box. (There's a lot of room in there) I wear a size 11, so I bought an 11 and they fit just fine. They are nice and lightweight. I'm going to wear these all summer.

They want my Ariat - I love the worn-out look. Absolutely great with jeans and yes, my friends want to "steal" them! I must add this was my first order from Zappos. Do you guys live on next block? My order arrived in a flash :) keep up the good work.

Brands I'd also recommend: Shoes are shoes but get em from zappos!

I love my Timbuk2 bag. I ride my bike to work and the medium bag is perfect for all my stuff (change of clothes, my lunch, toiletries, towel and a few other items). It sits very comfortably on my back, even when it is packed to the brim.
