    I love my Mountain Horse Boots - I am 100% sold on them. I have a pair of Ariat's and I dislike them. They have been on my stair case for sometime now, covered in dust, dog hair and my Ferrets love playing in them when they get the chance.

    To the comment about Zip Up Boots offering less support and come off your feet easier.....that's PTHPTHTHP. I've never encountered that or heard of that. I have zip up's and pull on's and I find no difference between the two, and if any of the 2 boots come off when pulled, it's the pull on's....cause, that's what they do...the pull on, and pull off. My Zip Up's, I cannot get off, unless I zip them all the way down, like you're supposed to.

    I live in my Ariat Heritage lace ups. There's just no more comfy boot around and they work great even when I'm showing western pleasure (only a little of the toe peeks out), so I pretty much wear them for everything.

    Not an old wives tale. I DO personally know someone who is missing his 2 outside toes from being stepped on by a draft in steel toes. It didn't slice them off but it did mangle them badly enough they had to be removed.

    I love my ariats... I've had three pairs. I've had the heritage III and I now have the quantum pro. None of them were at all painful to break in, were comfy from the moment I bought them. I wear mine both for riding and for working long hours at the barn, and they're fantastic. I highly recommend them.

    Thanks everyone! Right now I am trying to decide between these two:

    Ariat® Heritage Sport Lace Paddock™ Boot < Laced Paddock Boots < Riding Apparel|Dover Saddlery.

    Ladies' Ariat® Heritage III Lace Paddock Boot < Laced Paddock Boots < Riding Apparel|Dover Saddlery.

    Has anyone ever worn the first one? It says they're waterproof, which would definitely be a bonus since our field has been WET lately and I work on the marsh/beach doing beach rides! Even a little bit of water resistance would be nice.

    Tho I have not worn or bought the english Ariats, I wore my first pair of Heritage(western version) day in and day out. Literally I worked in them and rode in them as well. I was a waitress/clerk/cook in a small town cafe/store at that time. After I hurt my foot I couldn't wear them all the time tho. I now wear Twisted X boots(pullon) to ride. Alas, I cannot wear those to work in due to the stupid foot. I love love loved my Ariats.. I do have a pair of winter insulated Ariats(paddock style) that I wear in the winter, to ride or feed in. Love them(they are a bit larger than my normal size). I'd say either of those would work for you.

    Okay, so update! I went ahead and got the Ariat Heritage Sport Paddock Boots and I loveee them! Today I wore them for the second time and they were practically worn in the first time I'd worn them. It's just a change from the western boots I'm used to :)

    I second that, it wasn't a horse, but I work in a print shop and a good friend had the platform in a offset press break and fall. The problem is that steel bends and stays whereas leather once the piece is removed will move away. We are no longer required to wear steel toes.

    And it would most likely have crushed the whole foot without them. Draft woulda had to catch the side of foot behind the steel toe to do the damage.
    Check out the Myth Buster episode,
    This is a myth and it's been busted. Just not going to happen. There is no way this or any other injury will be made worse by wearing safety toes.
