I like my Ariat zip ups better than my lace ups.

Meatos mentioned Blundtone paddock boots, I also really like the Blundstone Original Pull Ons. They are also very durable paddock boots, very comfy and easy to pull on and off with no zipper or laces to mess with!

I still prefer my Ariats to wear with my Ariat half chaps, they look great together.

I have had 2 pairs of Mountain Horse winter paddock boots and I found they both leaked and caused my feet to freeze in our colder winter weather. I guess I should have learned after the first pair but I thought it was an isolated incident and perhaps they were worn out but no, they were both the same. I was disappointed as I like the Mountain Horse brand in clothing. I have a great jacket that is very hard wearing by Mountain Horse. I now own the Ariat winter paddock boots and have had no problems with them this past winter.

But don't get the equileather ones, I heard they're cheap but don't hold up well.

Recently bought a pair of Ariat Cobalt Quantum Performers from Dover and I love them. Quick break-in and the laces allow for a custom fit. A great "heels down" boot.

They have them on clearance for $99. Well worth the price.

Agree. I bought a pair of Ariat cobalt quantum Performers from Dover on clearance for $99 and I love them. Just loosened the laces a bit and they quickly broke in.
Great price, great boot !

I also have Ariat heritage paddock boots. As far as comfort and function goes I love the boots. I've never had a problem breaking them in, and they perform as they should.

I don't know how long paddock boots are expected to last, but 4 years is about the typical lifespan for my Ariats. The first pair that I had (besides the ones the dog chewed up...) were lace ups that I wore when I was just taking weekly lessons, and I would guess they lasted about two years before the rubber sole completely separated from the upper part of the boot. The next pair that I got were lace ups, and those lasted me all through high school before they began to crack. The cracks gradually got to the point of needing replacing, but the zipper broke in one and that did them in. The pair that I have now has lasted just over 4 years, and cracks are just starting to develop them. I would be shocked if in six months I hadn't had to buy another pair. I'll probably go with another pair of Ariats.

Maybe they wouldn't develop cracks if I cleaned and conditioned them after every ride in our dusty arena. That's just not going to happen though... but $100 spent every 4-5 years on riding footwear doesn't seem too bad in the grand scheme of things. Also, just because of ease of putting them on I will never buy a pair of lace up paddock boots. Zip up for me all the way!

Love my Ariats, they are comfy and last just about forever.

My Ariats are lasting quite well. I like lace-ups so I can adjust the fit. If you want a really great pair of riding pants Sonnenreiters are fantastic! But pricey. The ones I have can be tucked into English boots or they have slight bell-bottoms & a strap to go under the boot arch & look good Western also.
