Nice boot, very nice leather, didn't work for me but just because of my foot problem. Seemed like they would be. Great and well made.

Disappointed that it didn't fit! The length of the boot was fine but the width was so wide, my heel slipped out. I even tried it with thick socks but it didn't help. The ankle part of this boot is just too wide. I was surprised since other reviewers didn't mention this. I do have narrow feet and ankle, but it was REALLY wide, not just a little.

Got these to wear to wedding that is informal, and have worn to 2 other occasions. Whatever! These boots are made for partying and they look exactly as they do pictures. Color exactly like that in photo. Great fit. Maybe not made for walking a lot. I put an insole in mine, but usually I do that.

I'm very pleased with the Ariat Billie boot I ordered. It's very comfortable, especially for a wide foot and it's so stylish! I've worn with shorts as well as dresses and receive compliments every time I wear them. I highly recommend to those looking for a western style boot with style, comfort and a short length.

Great Boots! Comfy and padded inside, perfect height not to 'bump' your chins. True to size. Love Ariats! Debated between these and the Fatbaby's and glad I chose this style.

This is my first pair of cowgirl boots, and they are a success! The materials are nice, well made and buttery soft. They are absolutely not black, however...more of a charcoal grey.

These are cute boots, and the red is pretty much as it appears on my monitor--a soft red, but certainly not pink. The width feels true to size, but I followed the advice of other reviewers and ordered down a half size. I shouldn't have. I ordered the 7M, and the arch length is too short. I will need the 7.5M; sadly, that size is currently sold out. However, I do recommend these boots for their quality and style. I like classic, traditional styles, but I decided I would try something like this for fun. I do recommend them, but I don't think you need to size down.

These boots seem to be very well made, but the toe area is SO LONG. I had about 2-3 inches of empty space.

Really cute boot and very comfortable. Problem for me was the very, very wide opening at the top. It is excessively big. Tried a variety of jeans with the boots to see if they would work. No luck. They have to go back.

Beautiful boots. Pair I recieved were vibrant red (not pink at all). Haven't worn them yet. Hope they stretch. Sz 7 was too big - my whole foot was coming out of them. 6.5 is tight but I hope they stretch.

These just arrived, so I haven't worm much, but I was very impressed with the quality. The footbed is nicely padded--don't usually get that in a boot. The red is slightly different than the image, BUT its not a pink as some have suggested, more of a dusty, waxed red. The tips and heel are red, but there is some sort of subtle texture. They are larger and wider than I'd normally wear, but I plan to use these with socks so . . . they'll even work with heavy ones. My teen loved them too--so I'll be getting her a pair in another color.

Brands I'd also recommend: Nine west, calvin klien

I originally ordered these in a 7 and a 7½. The 7½ seemed huge and the 7 just a bit snug. I figured the 7 would stretch. I was wrong. No amount of wet socks, boot stretchers or plastic bags over wet boots made the 7 comfortable. But, I love the look of the boots. So, when they went on sale I tried the 7½ again. I swear they had a completely different fit and feel than the first pair. The padding is softer and the shoe is wider. This 7½ fits and is comfortable right out of the box. That is very strange. It is almost like first 7½ was a different production run. I own five other pairs of Ariat so I know the brand. End result is that I am keeping and loving the second pair and am stuck with the first pair. Ariat sizing is different (runs large) compared to five years ago. Also, variance between individual shoes seems to be an issue. For this reason I am giving them only four stars.

I first purchased the red Billie boot. I always wear a size 9 med. Reviews said order 1/2 size smaller so I purchased the 8 1/2 instead of 9. The fit is perfect! The boot has a nicely cushioned footbed and comfortable arch support. I have 4 pair of Frye boots, this boot is a better fit and more comfortable. My friend has a wide foot and purchased her regular size which fit perfect. I loved these boots enough to order the black which arrived today. For people having a problem with the black and red colors, I polished my boots with Frye paste boot polish. I now have real red and real black boots, they are beautiful. My advice is to use Frye boot polish only. It's colorless so it does not change color of stitching on upper boot. I used a different boot polish on a pair of Frye boots and it ruined them. I definitely recommend the Ariat Billie boot!

Another great boot from Ariat. I work with horses for a living so I'm either riding or walking all day every day and these boots not only hold up to my use but are stylish and comfortable as well!

I looked for a long time to find a comfortable, durable, lower heeled cowgirl boot. These are the ones I chose. Black ones are cute too it was hard to decide, I really only needed one pair so they went back to Zappos.

Beautiful, nicely made. Very comfortable and little break in required. For the price, it's a good little boot. Size down 1/2 size for fit with medium weight sock.

Was perfect right out of the box. If you have horses and ride a lot, buy this boot. It is SO comfortable...if your horse 'breaks down' you'll be OK to walk for miles!

These boots are really cute, and the reviews I read suggested I would love them. I did -- all but the too large heel area. My heel just kept riding up in them, and that along with the wide ankle opening made me think "very chic...but just can't do it if not perfect." I wanted to like these. But I also need to be sure the fit is exact to shell out the dough. Of course Zappos is awesome to help with returns and make them so easy. For reference, I wear a consistent size 9 in my shoes (which this boot was), have a pretty wide foot (which the boot toe-box fit perfectly), and have never thought of my heel as being wide. But heel popped up out of boot at every step. Sigh. Too bad.

These boots are men's size? What's with the white junk on the rubber? These size 9 boots in tan are 2 full inches longer than my feet. The reviews previously on this website lie. It's June 2013 and these boots are sized for clown feet! There are dark spots all over the tan parts. Someone needs to retrain the workers on how to distress leather realistically. So incredibly disappointed. Wonder if I should try an 8 or 7.5. I wear a 9 because normally an 8.5 is too tight on my right foot.

I love these boots! Yes, I admit, I actually squealed when I opened the box. I'm going to wear them to death, with skirts, jeans, shorts (!) they're that cute and versatile. I didn't realize the subtle blue stitching, which I love - just enough for some color but not enough to clash. They of course live up to the Ariat name, which in a word means comfort. Very well made, they will last for years, and only get more and more character with age. I wore them today and have already had to do several flights of stairs - no problem! They are airport worthy and great for a lot of walking. I really want them in red too!

I love Ariat, and although these are cute, they don't fit like typical Ariat boots. The "leg" of the boot is huge (and I'm no Twiggy). The heel slips big time when I walk. I will keep them but they aren't my favorites as far as comfort, so I'm afraid I won't be wearing them all that often.

These are nice looking short cowgirl boots & a good price too! I wear a size 7m in boots but these felt a half size larger so am returning them for the 6.5m They a comfortable, no rubbing of my toes with the slightly pointed toe box. Perfect for the warmer weather.
