I've had both types and definitely prefer the zip ups. I've never had a problem with the zippers or snugness. I have Ariats BTW and really have no complaints.

I prefer Lace ups, I know to many people who have had zippers break and come undone.

I wear laced Ariats...i like to have them tight on my instep but loose at my ankles.

Thank you all so much for your replies!

Thus, following the suggestions of the majority, I will go for the lace ups ;).

P.S. Is there anybody aware of any store with Ariats in NYC? The very few official dealers listed on website do not really store them...

A small reactivation of the thread :).

Ariats Heritage III seem to be quite tall for "short" boots... could anybody comment on that? Also, are the metal elements (which you use for laces on the top) any problem? (one person made a comment that you should not wear such boots but I somehow do not believe him)

Alternatively - do you know any other equally good brand selling nice jodhpur boots?

Thank you for help!

I have always had Ariat zip up boots. One time I had lace up ones, I absolutely hated them, I returned them and got zipper ones. I have never had a problem with the zippers. The leather usually cracks and rips by the soles on mine before something happens to the zipper. I am pretty abusive to my paddock boots.

I have both & wear & like both. Tredstep zip boots...great & Ariat tie that zip up the back & snap at the top in the back. Both are great! The zip ones are good also because you can unzip them when not riding and they are comfortable to walk around in.
