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 !
