Ariat boots..need reviews

What do you think of these boots. Does anyone use them? I am looking for a new pair as my dublin's didn't hold up. The heel splits down in the back.I'm guessing it's ultra soft rubber.

I'm needing boots that will last me forever as I am hard on them.

My daughter and I each have a pair of those, they're great. I don't ride in them as much as I muck stalls and run around the barn and they still look practically new despite all the abuse.

I have a pair of these but with laces, they are fabulous. The heel is a hard rubber. I also have Ariat half chaps and they are just as amazing. THey hold up great are so comfortable i could wear them all day.

The ariats will definitely hold up for you. I actually got mine used like 5 years ago and they still look like they are a month old and I wear them just about everyday.

I have the Heritage II and they are great. Don't worry they'll hold up just fine if you take care of them! :)

A ride a day keeps the worries away!

I ride in the Heritage II's and absolutely love them! I got them brand new, in a box, with shipping included from eBay for $30! You can find the Heritage II's for dirt cheap and they look almost identical to the Heritage III's. Speaking of which... any idea what the difference is between the II's and III's or is it just Ariat's way of convincing people to buy new boots? :)

I don't know about those boots in particular, but I have a pair of western Ariats and so do all but like 2 people I know. Love Ariats.

The folks who designed Ariats did a great job. A question to ask yourself, do you have a high instep? A friend of mine does and can't wear that model, but does great in the lace up's.
