Love this boot, love Ariat period. I've worn this boot all day out and about with no problems. When I first tried it on I thought it might be too tight across the toe area of my left foot but after walking around it loosened up and have had no problems. Cool styling, looks great with jeans, pants, dresses and skirts.

I love these boots. The leather is soft and the fit is excellent. I ride in Ariat boots and these are as comfortable as my riding boots, but more beautiful. The leather soles were a little slick to begin with, but are fine with some wear.

I love these boots. The sole and heel is very slippery, so I did have rubber soles put on them for safety in the winter. It was worth it. They look and feel great and I love that the ankle harness is removable for a second look.

from New England

These boots are gorgeous and comfortable. Ariat makes riding boots (which I've worn for years), so the construction of their street boots and shoes is excellent. For those accustomed to the riding boots, these do not have the same springy sole technology; but they are well-made and very comfortable. The sole has the typical smooth surface of good dress/shoes and boots, which means they are slippery at first but all you need to do scuff them up in the driveway or street as you would any others. The boots are lighter in weight than comparable harness or biker boots, which is nice. The leather is soft and beautiful; I treated it with weather proofing, which rubbed in invisibly. I tend to wear 7.5 in Ariat paddock boots because I want a snug fit for riding, so I ordered an 8 in these boots which is perfect for pulling on over slightly thicker socks.

I was looking for a low key mid calf brown boot with not too much bling, studs or metal and these fit the bill. The bottoms are extremely slipperly so when I was walking around my living room, I had to be careful. So make sure you are going to keep these before stepping one foot outside. You need to walk on some pavement to give a bit of scuff to the bottom. The leather is just gorgeous on these boots and I consider the style versatile to go with skinny jeans, boot cut pants or even skirts. They can morph into whatever style you're going after. They are western'ish but not in the category that I would consider cowboy boots. They are an investment that I will enjoy for many years to come.

These boots are absolutely gorgeous. At the price, I think they are a real steal. Out of the box they were pretty snug, but after wearing them for 1-2 days they began to loosen up. I usually wear an 11 and since that is the largest size they had, that is what I ordered. Normally I don't wear a wide, but perhaps if it were available, I might have exchanged these for a pair of W's. Beware wearing them for long periods of time in the first week, as I got a mild blister on my heal and my bunion was bothering me a bit. Mind you, I am only 23 years old, so if they bother my feet, they may bother yours as well. I am on day 5 now, and while my feet are a bit sore, I can tell that they are loosening up quite nicely. The leather is so supple and beautifully colored. I love the sound that the heel makes when I walk. Everything about these shoes is wonderful, except for the out-of-the-box fit. Additionally, the liner on the sole of the right shoe has started to peel up a bit, but I suspect that that is because they were a bit tight on me, and not due to shoddy construction. In fact, they are very well made. Beautiful shoes!

I really like these boots. I've worn Ariat paddock boots for riding for years and love them. I was looking forward to the same support and craftmanship in these boots and they do not disappoint. My only note to the manufacturer is that I wish the soles were not leather, but rather some sort of composite. I can spend a lot of time on my feet at work sometimes, and having more cushion in the sole makes it a lot easier.

I ordered mine a half a size small and they fit great! I am usually and 8 but the 7.5 fit really well even though it was a little tough getting them on in the beginning. So stylish and durable.

These are very nice cute boots. They are comfortable, but run a little large. The lack of a zipper/pull on style means they have a bit more width around the ankle/lower calf which takes a little bit of time to get used to. They appear to be extremely well made. I wear them all the time!

I really like the style of this boot, as it's mid-calf with a low heel. Difficult to find a mid-calf boot that fits my long, narrow foot and slim legs. And this one was too wide in the heel and the top edge of the shaft hit my leg and felt uncomfortable when walking in it. Probably would be just fine for wider feet and calves. I would have tried a slightly smaller size if it wasn't for the sole. For me the real downside of the boot is that it has a leather sole! I was slipping and sliding all over my wood floors. In my climate and area (Northeast) I have to have good traction on my boots. I prefer good traction in general as I lead quite an active lifestyle.

Beautiful boots but cannot get them on. They need a zipper! Couldn't get them on so I have no idea if they are true to size. The shaft is not lined which doesn't help the situation.
