    I suspect it is.. certainly back in my show days, my hunter trainer would have had a heart attack and died had I shown up wearing sneakers expecting to ride!!

    Also, since endurance stirrups are so wide, there isn't much of a danger in getting a foot all the way through and stuck. But yeah. It's mostly an endurance thing. My hunter/jump coach almost lynched me the first time she saw me riding that way. That's when she knew I was too far long to save.

    Never done an endurance ride, would like too. And like phantom my riding instructor drilled it into my head that sneakers were not safe.

    So maybe a trail rider thing.

    I hate sneakers, even when I'm not riding. I have to wear boots, my left ankle is messed up and it needs the support.

    For those of you with Ariat Terrains, is there much of a fit difference between the zip-ups and lace-ups? The black zip-ups would match my tack, but I wonder if they won't fit as comfortably as lace-ups.

    Ive heard complaints that the zip ups don't stay zipped up.

    I was going to say...! xD I've never heard of or seen that. XD

    Joe-That's a common complaint for lots of zip up boots. To the OP, if you keep the zipper clean, it should stay zipped.

    Tractor supply is having a $20 off footwear sale. I broke down and bought the terrains. I was hesitant to buy them because they seem to be hard to find in a wider width and I didn't know if the B width would fit.
    Stopped in after work when my feet were likely to be a little swollen from being on my feet for 8 hours and they fit fine.

    While it stays hot I'll still probably use sneakers.

    Im done with Ariats for ever. They can't grasp making boots with some clearance over the instep. Just bought some light hikers I thought would be good to ride in but were terrible uncomfortable. Will be returning them tomorrow. Going to go to Dicks and try on some Merril gortex hikers.
