When I ride, I prefer the Lace up Packers. But then I get off frequently and sometimes hike. I want the extra ankle support

I find them very comfortable.

I might have to try some one day. I like a more narrow boot for the ease in and out of the saddle.

and, I don't go skating whenever I try to walk on grass like I used to when I would buy leather soled boots.
Isn't that the truth? Lol

I ended up ordering the Ariat Heritage ropers in distressed brown. I can't wait to get them! This will be my first pair of ropers so we'll see. I do like my paddock zip up and lace up but I was in the mood for something different especially now that I'm riding western saddle.

That's what I love about them. I would totally wear them for running errands as well as the barn.

The last time I had ropers was years ago when I used to go line dancing. I've never used them for riding so I'm anxious to see how they feel.

I've been breaking in my new Justins and I have to say, I am really apreciating those rubber soles as well! Quiet and not a slip anywhere.

My other Justins have the flat leather soles, as do my paddock boots and one of my tall boots. My other tall boots have a rubber bottom, but they are not comfy unless I'm on the horse.
My lace up Ariat Terrain's are nice too.

When they make lace up packers with a side zipper, I might go back to them. I was on a pack trip in the West Elk Wilderness when, in the middle of the night, a horse broke off of its high picket and down the trail he went. It took way too long to put those packers on, as I stupidly didn't want to sleep in them. It took so long to catch him due to his head start. I now wear tall pull ons that are quick to get on in an emergency.
