How is it that everyone else's Ariats last so much longer than mine?
I've had 3 pairs, none of them made it through a summer's worth of hard ranch work :\
My Justin's have held out quite a bit better, but I also haven't been quite as rough on them.
What about something like the boots they sell at stores like LL Bean? I'm not sure if we're allowed to link to things like that, but if you google 'LL bean boots' you'll see them. The ones with the rubber. I've never worn them, but I often see people wearing them. A couple of my friends who ride English have them and they'll wear them for trail riding and such. I've been thinking about getting some myself. I know there are other companies that sell them besides LL Bean, but I'm drawing a blank right now...
