Love these! A little big in the calf, but I knew that going in-I'm a solid 14 1/2" width. Super high shaft, really comfy and wow...what quality! True Ariat!

I was very excited when I opened these boots. The quality of the leather and style are beautiful. However...when I tried to put them on, I could not even get my foot into one of them (the other was with great difficulty). Once on my foot, the boot was the right size, so the next size up I feared would be too large. I normally wear an 8 1/2, and that is what I ordered. The footbed was very comfortable and I had room in the shaft (my calf measures 14), but the boot is quite tall for my height (5'6). Unfortunately I had to send them back. I really wish they had fit better.

These would have been absolutely perfect, except they're about a half an inch to an inch too tall in the shaft for my 5'6" height and were poking into the back of my knee when I sat. Otherwise, beautiful leather and I find Ariats to be some of the most comfortable boots. They do run a bit small in the boot. I really wish they were a bit shorter because then they would have been perfect.

Entire order process was excellent. Wife was delighted with the boots as they looked better in person, so 5 stars for style. Footbed was extremely comfortable (Ariat is known for this), so would have been 5 stars, but extremely disappointed that the boots did not fit, so must return. therefore can't award 5 stars for comfort when the boots were too small to zip up. Overall, 4 stars for the great ordering experience. Fit details: Instep - a bit tight. Wife does not have unusually high instep; with boot fully unzipped, she had difficulty getting her foot fully seated. Once in the boot, she commented that the footbed was the most comfortable she had ever felt in a boot. Circumference is NOT 16 as listed on website! Wife s calf is 15-1/4 at widest point and she could not zip the boot up, whether over skinny jeans, or over just tights. Actual circumference measurements based on size 7B (fully unzipped, shaft laid flat on a table, zipper to zipper with tape measure: 6 down from top, 13 3 down from top, 14 Top of boot, 15 Top of boot, with elastic gore fully stretched out, 16 (is this where the 16" measurement came from? Height of boot, inside measurement from top of heel, 16 (would have been perfect) Wish Ariat made these in a D-wide size; maybe that would ease the instep issue but the shaft needs to grow by at least 2" so that 6" down from the top would be 15" instead of 13" but maybe that would affect the look of the boots that Ariat wants to portray.

Usually wear a size 6.5, so I ordered a size 7. They fit perfectly, and are comfortable right out of the box. I ordered these at the same time as a less expensive Nine West Tiptop (which fit in 6.5 but loose and slipped in the heel) and at the same time as a more expensive Frye Dorado Buckle Riding boot in 7, which was also the right size but was far too tight in the calf. Of the three, the Ariat has the best overall fit. Nice and roomy in the toe, no slip in the heel, just right in the ankle and calf. However, the leather looks and feels like vinyl. It is hard and stiff to the touch rather than smoother and softer. I still haven't decided whether I will return them or not. The other two are going back because although the leather looks and feels more expensive on the other two boots, the Ariat is the only one that actually fits properly (and it is very comfortable for a boot). To echo another reviewer, my main complaint is that the boot is pretty boring. It is a nice simple riding boot if you're an equestrian, and I am guessing the stiffness of the leather helps with waterproofing. But as a fashion statement, I agree it is pretty darn blah. I plan to keep looking, but may keep these anyhow.

Very tall shaft for shorties like me (5'4"), but my main complaint, it's pretty boring. A nice simple riding boot if you're an equestrian. But as a fashion statement. Pretty blah.

I cannot answer the questions about fit and comfort because I could not get them on my feet! Never ever have I had this happen. I have narrow feet and narrow ankles. I could not get my feet in the boots! What in the world?! They are beautiful boots, but I have to send them back. Did I get a lemon pair? I own several pairs of Ariat shoes and they are the most comfortable shoes I have. I sense a design defect in these boots. Bummer.
