Great Boots, the pull loop at the back is large enough too.
Size runs true.
Leather is high quality and boot is put together very well. Leather finish is very soft to the touch but prone to rub mark discoloration. These marks disappear with mink oil with minimal to no effort. No blisters but did take a long time to break in due to stiff sole and thick leather which I’m sure will help with longevity. Solid work boot with great support, could use a little more padding in sole but overall comfortable even after long days of being on my feet. I wear a 12 in pretty much everything and these boots are no exception.
This is my first time wearing this brand. I have had them a couple weeks and so far, I Love them.
They are just starting to break in and hit the real comfort zone. The boots are pretty stiff out of the box. Its worth the wait.
The padded tongue is soft and comfy.
This is my second pair of Ariat boots and I love them. Excellent quality, soles and uppers wear very well and hands down the most comfortable boots I’ve ever owned.
These took about 4-5 wearings before they broke in and now it’s like not wearing anything at all.
The other reviews are pretty accurate; This is an all around good boot. It’s not as comfortable or supportive as it could be due to a lack of cushioning in the sole, but also due the sturdiness of construction and materials. I’m hoping that in the coming weeks they break in. If you’re on your feet all day and don’t need a lot of protection, I’d recommend a lighter weight boot. Anyway, a thing to be aware of… These boots run narrow. I ordered the EE wide was surprised at how narrow they are. If I had gone with the standard width, they’d be uncomfortable. I’m also generally a size 13 and ended up exchanging for a size 12. Style is fine. They don’t feel heavy like you’re lugging weights around. Let’s just hope they’re durable.
I’ve had a pair for a while now and wanted to get another in case they stop carrying them
They’re a great fit, very comfortable and wear in great.

Great boot! Ordered a wide and it fits great. Didn’t take long to break in. Gotten compliments on them and they are sturdy!
I had to return them because they fit a full size large. Great boots though. Style, comfort, and good quality. Just order a full size down

Perfect Fit and all day comfort! So glad I purchased a pair!
Boots have been good so far. They are comfortable all be it a little stiff, but I am sure once they are broke in they will be even more comfortable.
Solid boots with little break in time. Tough but look professional enough to wear in my sales position

As always, product is great! Comfortable and great fit!
I’ve been wearing these every day for the past two months since I’ve got them and never been happier with what I’ve been wearing in my life. These boots are downright sexy and I will never regret the purchase. Good quality, fit is good, and they are comfortable as beans. Would definitely recommend YEE YEE
Comfortable from the start and even better after breaking them in. Great quality, as always, from Ariat boots. Perfect for what I need.
Great Quallity boot, cant wait for them to get broke in like a new pair of jeans
my husband loved these boots for work and working on the ranch ! comfortable and great flexibility!
Got a freah pair of the previous version of this book for work in 2019. Put them through alot! They’re beat up but still in great shape. Got a second pair last year of this model as a back up. Great price for how long they lasted.

Size seems to run a little large but other than that I really like them

As a diabetic with sensitive feet these are about the only boot/shoe that I can wear without hurting my feet.

I use them for work at Tractor Supply. Great for pulling skids off feed and never losing traction. Surprisingly comfortable too! Had them for almost a year now and they’re still going strong! They’re holding up in quality. Definitely worth the price. I plan on keeping these as my work boots as long as the company continues to make them! I’ll just continuously replace them until I’m either in a different place of work or until they stop selling!
So far they are a good looking comfortable boot. Didn’t have much of a break in period. I definitely recommend. Shipping was quick – ordered on Saturday and received them on Wednesday. True to size.

Good boots, decent quality, no smelly Ariat lining, boots are true to size and can’t complain too much at all. Definitely recommend for an everyday long wearing boot
Fits well, the top of the boot took a little while to break in, but only a few days. Now it’s smooth sailing. I wanted something that was somewhat casual for work at the office, but hold up to some outdoor work. The dark color goes great with jeans and seem like they will hold up in the wet grass and snow. Also very quiet, almost like sneakers. No clunking down the halls at work. Would buy again.
I have purchased this same work boot for approximately 4 years and am completely satisfied with the quality of the materials used and the durability of the boot itself. I have no problem stating “I will purchase this boot” as long as Ariat continues to make it. My last purchase consisted of 2 pairs.
