I have a pair of Ariats that I love. I use them for everything and they hold up extremely well and are super comfortable. I get a pair every year because well...I'm tough on them. I go through mud, puddles, snow up to my thighs, wear them 12 hours a day when I'm at the barn working. I wear them to school, to the store, wherever. I wear them pretty much everyday and my feet never got sore or uncomfortable. I love my Ariats!
