Ariat and Born boots, sandals, and shoes are the ONLY FOOTWEAR I will ever wear. And My Dandy's do not disappoint. Perfect fit since Day 1 and absolute comfort every time I slip them on. I'm a cowgirl stuck in the "old ways" so my boot cut jeans still cover my boots, but the gorgeous design always gets compliments. I'm sure these could stand up for real riding, but why? I have the "you-know-whats" for riding and barn chores. I am looking forward to the Dahlia's next paycheck!

I love these! I ride in the Ariat Paddock Boots, so I'm not at all surprised by how comfortable they are. I wear them more often that I should, considering I'm not a cowgirl. They look great with skirts and skinny jeans, as well as "boot cut" jeans. I received lots of compliments on them. Someone asked me if I slept in them, I've worn them so much.

Hands down best boots I've ever worn. Comfortable, formed to my feet in no time. Plus they look seriously badass. I wore the brown ones almost every day for 2 1/2 years. They went with me through rain, snow, mud, working outdoors, hiking, riding, they've been all over the world, on stage countless times, in class, in weddings. I rarely took those things off...I even slept in them once or twice. Sturdy as all get out. I accidentally left them out in a torrential downpour one time. The more worn they became, the better they looked. I wore the heels down to almost nothing after a summer of wearing them in the city (pavement=evil for cowboy boots) and got them resoled. I received compliments on them almost daily up until the day my big toe finally busted through the side while working in the garden. They are now a pair of flower planters on my front porch. RIP old boots. I will be purchasing the same pair again.

These boots are awesome! I wear a size 8, that's what I bought and the fit great. Easy to get on, no slipping. I wanted to break them in before wearing them all night at a concert but didn't get a chance. Was not an issue, no blisters and felt great all night. Color, texture, design were all what I expected when ordering and even exceeded my expectations. Well worth the money!

I love these boots! I had to break them in quite a bit when I first got them as there is no padding on the inside and the edge of the seams hits right at the ankle, but other than that, great quality! Even got to use them on my trip out west over the last couple of weeks.

Love these boots! These boots are awesome. They are extremely comfortable and authentic looking. The detail is more then you can see in the photos. I ordered my usual size and they are roomy but I would not go a size down. They are not as stiff as most new cowboy boots are. I wore them to work with no issues and I'm on my feet all day.

These boots are soft, light and gorgeous. My bad feet and bone spur in my toe are the only reason I had to return them. They are worth the price and are just the right height and the suede and stitching are really attractive. If you are looking for sexy black boots, give these a look.

I have wanted a comfortable pair of boots for a long time. I've tried and returned several pair from Durango to Lucchese and several other brands in between. These fit perfectly. I am a size 7 1/2 and they are so comfortable and look wonderful. I've received many compliments. The leather detailing and stitching is second to none that I have tried.

These boots are really cute, but unfortunately the shaft is way to big, so there is quite a lot of space from the top of my foot up. Sadly, they are going back.

Love this boot but unfortunately it was too big. The other reviewer was right - the heel is slightly higher than the toe, so your foot will slip forward but maybe this is just because the boot runs big? My foot was slipping to the front of the boot, even with thicker socks. I usually wear a 10M or 10.5M, depending on the shoemaker, ordered a 10 and I will have to return as Zappos didn't have 1/2 size smaller. So disappointed!

I am very sorry that I read the reviews before ordering these boots. I am a true size 5 and after reading the reviews that these boots ran small I ordered a 5½. These boots run true to size not small. I am sending them back because of this. They are great looking boots and the leather is soft and flexible right out of the box.

I bought these boots for my daughter (her 2nd pair!), but the size 8 she said was huge. The first pair, which are now flower pots, were size 8 and fit perfectly. We returned them and I am curious if that pair was an anomaly? Otherwise a fantastic and beautiful boot!

these are beauties but be careful. if you are used to wearing the other ariats cowboy boots, these will throw your forward. the heel is about 3/8 inch taller and made out of wood. have 5 other pairs of ariats but these put too much pressure on the ball of my foot and were not comfortable. they also felt a little more snug.

I have owned quite a few Ariat boots over the years and they have always fit well out of the box and been extreme comfortable. This was Not the case with the Dandy boot. While I loved the look of it, the boot was extremely stiff and uncomfortable. Too bad because they are really pretty.
