Best Boot I’ve Owned
I bought these about a year ago, the soles are strong and have stayed together. The leather that covers the steel toe has worn away because I’m a plumber pipefitter. I have gotten oil, paint, clean and dirty water, mud, and also hazardous material on my boots yet the color still looks great! And with any arias boot the insoles are amazing and I can wear these for 12+ hr shifts with comfort. I have decided instead of buying a new pair I will get the tough toe epoxy and try and get more use out of them. With the toe being repaired and new insoles I’ll be counting down the time until the soles start to rip from the boot.

I work in a wire mill and received these boots in April of 2018 and the sole started separating from the shoe by December. for $140 I would expect these boots to last at least a year. Will never buy these shoe again

Good bang for the buck
Working as a mechanic at a Chevy dealer in the midwest, my work boots see a lot of action. They get drenched in everything from water to coolant to diesel oil and still keep my feet dry. I've had my Groundbreaker steel toes for roughly a year. They have their share of scuffs and nicks, but still have a lot of life in them. I haven't seen any signs of the soles separating like another user posted, either. When they do give up the ghost, I'll likely be buying another set of these.

Fit great - Feel great - Look great
These almost look too good to be yardwork books, but they are perfect to slip in and out of going to and from the yard while providing all the support and comfort needed.

Second pair of this boot. Love the style and fit. got the EE width. Toes have room to move. Very stylish low profile boot. I still use the first pair for around the house stuff. Durable boot for sure

for the price works for me
I work for a aggregate company that runs 6 days a week 10-12 hour days. I usually would go through a pair of $60-$70 work shoes every 3 months. I bought these to give them a try and they work great, very comfortable, and sturdily. I have had them for 10 months now and they do show signs of wear however; I am sure they will last me a year. Like others have stated the seams around the bottom do start to separate but I just put a little gorilla glue and its good as new (twice so far. As for the soles I really like these they are sturdy yet comfortable and don't become smashed and uneven over time. Overall will be buying these again as they have saved me money by replacing 3-4 pairs of generic shoes I would have bought in a years time.

No good!!
The last two pair of ariat steeltoed boots I bought lasted well over a year. This pair not even a year and the soules are falling off. Definitely not what I expected from this company.

Short life
I bought this pair 6 months ago switching from Carhartt boots that lasted me about a year. Being tough on boots I typically go through a pair every year working on the farm. I had heard good things about Ariat and wanted to give them a shot, hoping they may last longer than a year. These started coming apart at the semes and the rubber bottom started falling off. The only positive thing I can is that they were comfortable when I first got them.
