Hi Carol,

I am a big fan of almost anything that Ariat makes. I have a pair of Ariat cowboy boots, and they are super comfy. They are NOT the pretty kind of cowboy boots designed for fashion. They are designed to be ridden in.
I have flat feet, and Plantar Faciatis, so I need good support. I normally wear custom orthotics in any regular shoe (except my Dansko clogs and my sandals, which I wear rarely). For my cowboy boots, I do not need any orthotic. I find them extremely comfy for long time of standing. Not great for long distance walking, but super for riding.

Where are you going? Which dude ranch? (something I've wanted to do for years)

Professional Heritage Stockman - Ariat

Im liking the rounder toe Justins. Ariats I have tried just don't fit me. Ariats tend to run pretty narrow also, both in womens and men. SO be sure to try them on. Ariats just don't fit me at all, Seems stores stock regular, (way to narrow) or Extra wide, ( too wide) wonder if they make a Wide,, as in not Extra, just wide. Anyway I have pretty much given up on cowboy boots for riding and just wear light hikers. Light weight, water proof, safety toe, can run in them, could also comfortably walk miles back to camp if the need arose. Plus they go better with my teal striped tights !

I have moderately wide feet, and Stockman boots are perfect! You want them to initiallly feel a bit tight over the arch/instep area of the foot, but NOT the toe.

My son has completely flat feet. He wears Justin Ropers and they work great for him.

I have no arch in my feet whatsoever and I use Blundstones, kind of an Aussie stockman boot......could walk around all day in them, they're wide right where they need to be, and with my jeans pooled down around my boots you would never tell! I've had the same pair for ten years.....only now am I looking at getting another pair

My husband has flat feet also and loves his Ariat Terrain H20 boots. They are really comfortable for him..enough that he doesn't even use his orthos with them. He will be buying another pair of Ariat boots when these die lol.

PS. LUCKY YOU going to a Montana dude ranch!!! *Green* Hubby are I have our sights set on Triple J Ranch....one day.
