Ariat International - Ariat® Women?s Heritage Stockman

I also have ariats and love them. They were a bit narrow for me when I got them (I have wide feet too) but I just put them on, soaked them in hot water for a few minutes, wore them around until they dried, and neetsfoot oiled them and they are really comfy now. I don't think I will get another pair though, too much work to get them comfortable.

I think for wide feet, you need to look at something like the previous posters posted or if (like me) you want something with a thin sole, look into the square toe boots. I don't like to have a big sole on my riding boots so I think my next pair will be a pair kinda like this.
Ariat International - Ariat® Men's Latigo Tall

I think on my next pair, I will probably go with a men's boot. They come in wider sizes. Ariat only makes women's boots in a B (aparently they think all women are supposed to have little dainty thin feet ) and I can get men's boots in my size in a D. Much more comfy.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

I have a pair of Luchese that are extremely comfortable. I've been told my everyone they'd last forever, and they are holding up very well so far :) I also have a pair of men's Twisted X boots. I've had them for about 6 or more years, and sole of one is just now starting to get where I think it needs to be replaced. And I have very wide feet, by the way. And flat, too. But that's a different story. :)

And about Ariats- they are awesome boots, as well. I had a pair but lost them. :\

I used to buy nothing but Ariats... last pair of Ariats I bought the leather was stiffer and they were not as comfortable as my old pairs. So I tried Roper's HorseShoes.... Extremely comfortable!!!! I am very hard on boots, mine get worn as everyday shoes and this last pair has really held up!

Don't the Probabys have kind of a thick tread? Kind of hard to get out of sturrip?

Most people are like Slinkies; they serve no real purpose, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on for dear life.
