Boot is true to size but a little roomy, so I double up on my sox. I always do anyway. Great look even after worn and roughed up.
Throw on a pair of faded jeans and head out for Friday night. They look that good will buy these again !
The boots overall are great. I can wear them all day with no issues. At work, running to the store, running a fire call, doesn’t matter I will probably have these boots on. The most important part to keeping your boots in good health/ making them last, is rinsing them off and keeping them oiled. I also like to put them on the boot dryer. It’s like with anything. Take care of them and they will last you a long time!
*If you plan to ride in these boots make sure you have wide stirrup. With the standard ones on my saddle I could not get more than my toe in.
Very comfortable, yet I needed a inserts and plenty of room for them.
Previously I worked in a plant full of lead and acid. Per regulation I had to keep getting new pairs after a set time. These boots held up under a lot of different elements. Factory work, welding, mining, just about all of the extremes I've tackled in these boots. I tell everyone about them. And their comfort. About the fact that despite having a bad back and bad knees, I can work like I used to now.
It's not only a work boot. They are styling. I wear nothing else unless I'm at the gym. Every occasion I have these on. Because you never know what your going to get into around here. I'll die if ariat ever stops making these boots. I even have bought boot dryers to prolong life. I've never worn a pair out. The ones in the picture are two and a half years old. Still doing good with minor wear and tear in the heel. Nothing too bad. I keep making excuses on why I don't need to splurge and get a newer pair but honestly, those first few weeks are amazing because you just feel the quality in them.
If I could afford another pair right now I would do it. Because when I go to a different pair I usually gift the old one so out to friends. One guy has had boots I worked in for about a year, and they still look amazing. This was my first actual purchase of anything ariat. Now I'm a fanatic. I want everything. Trust me, buy the boot.
