This is my second pair of Fat Babys. I just got these 2 sizes larger to accommodate sock liners, wool socks, toes warmers and space blanket for winter horse riding. I love them. I don't know why no one makes insulated western riding boots for women.

This is the very first shoe I have ever bought online. I was afraid regarding width and size. They came in about 2 days. When I opened the box, I was amazed at how beautiful they were. All I could think was let them fit, let them fit. The right foot went on a little snug but extremely comfortable. The left one I had to put a zip lock bag at my heel. It was easy to remove if I left a strip of plastic behind my heel. OMG, I am a nurse in the OR. I put shoe covers on when I wore them to work. I was on my feet for 12 hours. These boots are more comfortable than my Crocs. I showed everybody at work. I brought them in brown. I am going after the black shoe Baby as soon as I finish typing this.

Super cute boot! I was not sure about the fit, at first, and spent a week just wearing them around the house. Once I wore them out to the barn, I was hooked. Zappos was excellent, as usual.

I really like the style of these shoes. Just one thing you do not ever carry a wide width. Not all women have slim feet. Some of us have flat feet which makes it hard to find a nice shoe that really is nice and fits. And men's shoes just are not the same.

I love these! Great comfort, wonderful practical heel and sole, and yet incredibly adorable! These and a pair of sandals I ordered at the same time, are my first experience with the Ariat brand, and I think we will be friends for life.

I bought these as a gift for my wife and at first was going to return them as she said they were too large. After roughly an hour of trying them out she changed her mind and decided to keep them as they will only be worn while dealing with livestock and not for long periods.

I love these boots! They are so comfy with lots of support for your feet; standing around is no problem. You will not only look cute, but you will be comfortable doing it! I live in these and my Rocket Dog Ranchers (check those out, too!).

I love my Fat Babies. I have wide feet with high arches, and they fit great. I ordered a size 8 and have enough room to wear thick socks. They are well made and look great especially with jeans.

These are so cute and comfortable, perfect for horseback riding or motorcycle riding, cute for wearing around town with your boot-cut jeans and they are really popular in my small, semi-rural community. Unfortunately I could not wear them. The toe box and instep were very comfortable, but the heel was extremely wide and slipped way too much for my foot. I even sized down to a girl's 3 or 4 and still had the same trouble. I've always been told that Western boots should slip a bit (1/4" to 1/2"), but on my skinny heels they were slipping about 1". Great for my thick calves, though -- the shorter shank fit really well.

I really like how it looks but a little too stiff around my leg, if I'm not wearing pants, I don't know if i will be able to wear it for long, but comfy on my feet otherwise.

These boots are the best boots I have ever owned. They have ZERO break in time. Comfy yet rugged feel. The soles are soft so you get a good cushion when you walk, jump, run, whatever. The only thing I would like more about these boots is if the soles would last a bit longer. My favorite boots thus far, I now own 2 pairs!

These are my 3rd pair of Fat Baby's. I am a farmer and wear these to work everyday. They are the only pair of boots to fit my foot and go and off with ease. My foot is wider at my toes and too many boots pinch. I love the Fat Baby!

I have worn Ariat riding riding tennis shoes for years and love them but wanted something different. Still love the comfort but I had to buy a full size larger. All of my other Ariat's are a 7 1/2 except one pair of boots that are an 8. Pain in the butt to get on but then they felt a little big. Thought the shorter boots would be easier to get on, which they are, but had to get an 8 1/2-I don't have any other shoes in that size. No matter, still love them. Checked with a friend who has Fat Babies. She too got a full size bigger.

I love these boots! I never owned a pair of cowboy boots before and bought them for a special event, but I have been wearing them everywhere since I got them. I am used to wearing sneakers most of the time, so the stiff leather took a bit of getting used to, but it softened up pretty fast. They are amazingly comfortable. I can walk around in the all day, and my feet don't hurt, which I can't say for my favorite sneakers. I have a very high instep and was worried about how easy they would be to pull on, but after the first couple of times they went on easily. Width and size felt true, as I ordered my usual size. Plus, they are really cute. I just can't praise them enough!

Shoes!

from missouri

I spent hundreds of dollars with doctor visits, mri's and visits to the podiatrist to find out I've got arthritis in both feet and ankles. I didn't want to spend $300 on orthopedic supports or $500 on the ugly orthopedic shoes...a brace type boot was also recommended. A friend suggested Ariat Fatbaby's and I'm so glad I did! I swear, all the unbearable pain I've had for months is gone! These boots are what you need if you want an all day comfortable boot. My pain was so bad I was using a cane at work, no fun since I'm only 45. Got the boots, I promise, no pain...support all day, I hate taking these boots off!

Because these boots are Ariat, they are comfortable from the first step and will stay that way through a long work day. Their looks just tickle me! They are a cross between John Wayne and Tina Turner; fabulous workmanship and great style. With these boots on your feet, you won't have a hesitant bone in your body. I wear them with skirts and love them!

Awesome boots! My sister has a pair and loves them, so I ordered a pair Saturday, received them Monday, thank you for super fast shipping Zappos! They are so cute and comfy. Way more comfy than my Frye boots. I am getting another pair in a different color. Highly recommend these.

Fat Baby takes a little work to get used to because it fits differently than ordinary shoes or boots. Ultimately, the effort is worthwhile. FB is the go-to boot for my early morning dog walk on uneven terrain. Somehow I end up wearing them all day. Okay, I don't go dancing in them but they're awesome boots.

This is my 2nd pair of Fatbaby's. I am a city girl but these boots are so cute and can be easily worn with everything from jeans to skirts. I love the distressed brown color and am excited to wear these boots this fall.

I absolutely love these boots! This is my second pair of this style and I'm sure I'll buy another pair once I wear these ones out. The first pair I bought lasted a long time, I actually still wear them but I've almost worn the soles off of them after wearing them everyday for about a year straight. I would recommend these to someone who wants a pair of boots for comfortable every day wear.

I've got high arches & really wide feet, and alas, this boot was too tight across the instep. If they offered a wide width, it'd probably fit much better. Gotta say...I tried the Justin Gypsy to compare, and found the Gypsy to have a little more wiggle room inside. Great quality though...that's apparent as soon as you get them out of the box.

These boots run huge -- especially in the heel and ankle. I put my orthotic insert on top of the original foot bed for testing. The result was a good fitting toe, too tight across the top (predictable with the extra depth of the orthotic), but my heel slipped alarmingly and I could have put two of my ankles in there. By the way, the footbed is not removable, so if you plan on using orthotics, don't buy online.
