I also have the Ariat Heritage II field boots. Got them for a discount for like $180 something.
Once they are broken in (which just takes 3-4 rides), they are awesome!

do not buy the cheapos like ovation-bought a pair-sent them back twice -got the boots that kinda fit one day before my show=wore them once for 10 minutes-have scars on my heels really high almost on my leg= from walking 25 feet-tore them off went back to my field boots with canvas uppers-adorable and they look cool altho hard to clean. thye are toughriders from dover-love them. Next year for the show will spray them with something?? to make them shinny=no cheap boots-they kill.

I had a pair of Ariat Challenge Boots and yep, zipper busted. The tack shop I purchased them at was great--gave me a new pair free.

I chose to get a pair a half size larger and that helped a LOT--don't go for the ultra tight feeling--snug, yes, but I find the zippered boots don't break in as much as the pull on boots, thus the snug fit never really goes away and viola, your zipper busts.

ps--I LOVE my ariats! After 3 lessons and lots of bleeding, they are awesome.
