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 LOVE these boots. These are definitely rock-star cool and pretty comfortable as well! HOWEVER, the sizing runs HUGE. I wear a 9.5 in a regular shoe and up to a 10.5 in a running shoe. I wear an 8.5 in these. Other than that... no complaints. Very cool. They look awesome with jeans.

Awesome boots! I'm not sure what all the fuss is about sizing. I wear a 10.5 and the 10.5 fit perfectly (I also ordered size 10 and 9.5 based on all the previous reviews). I couldn't even begin to get my foot into the size 10. Maybe one of Ariat's factories in China put out a wrong sized lot recently? Who knows?

These boots met my expectations in every respect. I have a wide foot as a result of 45 years of running. I also have tendinitis and must have a strong, stable shoe/boot with good arch support. These boots fit the bill. The lower parts of the boot are very thick, durable leather. The uppers are very soft and supple. The soles look as if they will last. Overall, I am very pleased with these boots.

As with every pair of Ariat boots either me or my wife have owned, these are incredibly comfortable. I don't think you will find a more comfortable boot for all day on your feet.

I love these boots, they are practically the only shows I wear any more. They do run large, if I would have paid attention to the reviews I would have known that. Zappos was very helpful though and they over nighted me the correct size.

I typically wear a 10.5 or 11, depending on shoe. More often than not a 10.5, average width. Many reviews said this boot runs a full size big, but since Zappos was out of stock on the 10 and 10.5, I tried an 11. Well, I know it's strange but the boot was way too small. There was no way I could even get my foot into the boot. I love the style and the boots look awesome, so I'm returning them to try an 11.5. We'll see.

Amazing boot! Listen to the others, if you have normal width feet, order a full size smaller. You want them very snug on your metatarsal, with just a bit of slip in the heel. After they break in, your feet will feel as good as they look.

I bought these boots, based on the positive reviews on here and every other site. These boots are top notch! I went with the earth with brown bomber and absolutely love them! I liked them so much that I bought same boot in black. I usually wear a size 10, but bought a 9 wide and they fit perfect! Top quality boots!

I am very pleased with this boot. it has a nice cushioned insole and overall comfortable boot...in fact, more comfortable than I anticipated and has become one of my favorite boots to wear. I felt the boot was sharp looking but it was confirmed as I've received numerous compliments and inquires about the boot.

I bought these as a gift for my boyfriend and he loves them. He wore them to a 12 hour shoot the first day without even breaking them in and he said his feet never hurt!

I wear boots all the time, I just got the Ariat Rambles, about an hour ago, and I never have had such awesome boots. The fit style is phenomenal the leather is amazing. It is not to hard, nor too soft. It is just right. They are very comfortable. These boots are guaranteed for looks and style. I promise you will be completely satisfied.

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.
