Arrow Boots for trailriding

Looking for good riding boots to ride western trail ride, (no showing). I've heard Ariat Probabys are comfy and work well...does anyone know if they are warm during cool weather? Any other recommendations?

I have a pair of Ariat endurance shoes that I ride in. Not a boot but a slip on shoe. I noticed they have gone to mostly all tie up type shoes. They are very comfortable winter and summer. I will buy another pair when these wear out. I like the waterproof ones, H2O's I think they are calling them. Heres a page of some, again I like the H2O's Telluride.

Vidaloco, I looked up the Ariat® Women's Terrain H2O Roper boot (I prefer riding in a boot...) and it is appealing...anyone know how comfortable/durable they are? I was looking at the probabies, but I like Terrain H2O's waterproof, insulated factor...thanks

Ariats tend to run small and narrow, so keep that in mind when ordering. I normally wear a 10 or 10W in women's and I need an 11 or the men's sizes in Ariats.

I prefer Mountain Horse boots. All of these are insulated and/or waterproof.

Dublin boots are nice too:

For traditional Western Boots, I prefer Justin boots and Tony Lama.

I have a pair of the Tony Lama TLX boots too. Very comfortable. So far I have only worn them as my "good boots" rode in them for parades and wear them for going out on the town. When they get a little more worn out I'll start riding in them more LOL


Sorry I wanted to edit this in.
For trail riding, in my opinion, its good to chose a boot that is very comfortable to walk in on rough terrain. You just never know when a trail ride is going to turn into an on foot hike.
That's why I prefer an endurance shoe.

I wear womens ariat boots, they are really comfortable and really really durable, my puppy got ahold of one of them...yea...but they are still kickin and I say they have their own unique look lol my feet stay pretty warm in the winter, sometimes if im out for a while my toes get a little cold, but that's only happened once and I was riding literally all day (9.00 in the morning to 7.00 that night minus two hours for lunch) I really love my boots and sometimes I wear them to school and once I wore them to help my gma at work (shes a caterer) my feet didnt hurt at the end of the day

I wear ariat riding boots and I love em! My feet are always dry and the boot is comfy. I wear mine all the time. I have of course stepped in mud, probably horse poop from time to time, wet grass of course, dirty stalls...you name it lol. I chose the riding boot because they are a good fit in the stirrup and will easily come out in case of emergency. They seem to be very durable as well...like I said...i wear mine every day and they are in great shape.

I just recently got a pair of ariat pro babies. I really like them. I mink oiled them the same day I got them. It darkens and softens and helps to protect the leather from water. I have had no issues with them. They do run smaller so save some time and just try the next larget size. I purchased a 9 and usually wear an 8. They have been ultra durable. I'm VERY hard on my boots. I wear them throught the mud and poo, clean them up, wear them to the grocery store, pretty them up wear them out on the town. I recently wore them on a 9 hour shopping spree and although my feet were tired at the end of the day, it wasn't from the boots.

I love the way they feel in the stirups and have never had any trouble with traction, even when the grass was wet.

I would recommend them.

From a guy's standpoint, I've had a pair of Ariat Ropers for years. I keep them at the barn and just check for mice before slipping them on.

I also have a pair of Lucchese 2000's that I love for riding (got them about 8 years ago so they are still "new"), and a real old pair of Justin tie ups that just won't die.

I have others but those are reserved for riding.

Well Ariats seem like the way to go - by the sound of it
