Ariat Heritage Field Boots?

Has anyone had the Ariat Heritage Field Boots before? I currently have the Ariat Crownes but they are getting really old and have holes in them (I use them every day). I found a great deal on the Heritage boots but I have never tried them before. Anyone have any experience with this particular boot?

Thanks

I think those are the ones that I have. I used to have the Crownes too. Personally, I like them. Nothing wrong with them.. But nothing will compare to the Ariat Crowne Pro boots :( Miss them.. I rode in them until my leg was numb. Literally.

I have the Heritage II Zip field boot - absolutely LOVE them. They took about a week to break in, and now the leather is so soft they fall over when I don't have boot shapers in them. Suuuuuper comfy.

I probably won't get the zip. I have very odd shaped calves and the zips are either too big around the calf or too small. And I really don't feel like getting custom zips just to have zips.

I think it's the same principal though with or without the zip... hopefully. Haha

I have heard great things about the Heritage boots. I have the Challenge, which is one step higher and I really love them.

I have the Heritages without the zip and they're nice. I think Ariat's quality has gone down significantly in the past few years (when they moved their factories to china) and I'm pretty unhappy with several of their products but I'm pretty please with my boots. I think they're the best in the price range. I would advise against the zippers. Almost all the kids at our barn have Ariat zip up tall boots (challenges, crowns, heritage, etc) and there are busted zippers left and right. A few kids had their zippers break within the first 2 months of owning the boots! My friend who works at a tack store said that's very common and they have a LOT of ariats returned because of it.

Interesting. My zippers have been ok so far and I have had my boots for almost a year ::knocking on wood::. They have gotten stuck a few times but a little WD40 rubbed on the zipper works like a charm. I had to get zippered boots because none of the pull-on ones would fit. They were either too big or too small.

My Mountain Horse Boots have zipper and I've never had issues, and my Saxon Equileather Field Boots have yet to have issues and I wear those into the ground.

If my zippers go out, I'm lucky enough to have a fellow not that far away who'll replace them for $10.00

We don't carry Ariat tall zip boots at my tack shop, but regardless I personally have never had a problem with them. I know of a couple people that have, but I have also heard of top-of-the-line zip boots doing the same.
