Bought these boots 3yrs ago fantastic boot have had no problems with water leaking in the sole are finaly starting to wear down but thats every day wear for 3 yrs but 10 out 10 recommend buying these
For the most part I have loved these boots. Comfortable and stylish. I’m a general contractor and have been wearing these boots for about a month around interior residential projects. I wouldn’t consider myself a Clutz. I already have several large chunks out of the toe. Not sure if the leather is too soft, but my blundstone boots are still kicking after 7 years, not sure if these are going to last 1 year.
I bought these about a month ago. Right out of the box left boot felt good. Right boot not so much a lot tighter and the sole just didn’t feel right. But I figured they just needed to be broken in so I’ve been wearing them on the weekends to and from work and that right boot still not good to the point that my foot is aching during the day with my work boots on. So I’m giving up on them and gonna go find a different pair
This is my second pair of these. I truly hope they don’t change anything in the future about This boot. My first pair are still in good shape. I have wide feet and these fit great in the toe area also. Many surveyors are not wide enough in the toe section and end up squeezing your toes. Very uncomfortable and very painful. These boots are meant to be worn most of the year. I would not recommend them for late fall/winter/early spring. So MAYBE up to mid October and not until the snow is gone.
I work outdoors and trust these boots to keep my feet dry. If you wear heavy socks in the early spring your feet will stay warm. These are not insulated but your feet will sweat and get toasty on warm days or just being rather active. I Also use an arch support because my knees are pretty tore up from being in 1st Tank Bn. USMC and jumping down from the vehicle onto concrete for 11years.
My only complaints are that I need more cushion for my feet. Walking most of the day on uneven ground doing lawn care and pruning and dragging loads of leaves around among other debris is hard on the lower extremities. Also the secure foot system?, Is not exactly comfy at first. This will loosen up and your foot will go in/out of boot smoother over time.
I know some people have said that the color is too dark. Well, my boots get covered in dirt,sand,mud, wet grass and yes, doggy doo-doo. At the end of the day I need to hose off my boots and I throw on new coat of polish and buff. They look just like new. Dark color is good as it hides flaws from the days work.
So, a solid 4star rating. And yes, I do recommend these boots. They seem to be able to handle the work load I put on them. I will buy one more pair of these. Just in case something happens to one of my current two pair. I
My son loves his boots they came quickly and were right size really like
I bought these last month just for general wear after wearing a previous pair of Ariat boots for work over the last year. I’ve have put these through the ringer over the last several weeks, including crawling around under my truck on concrete and gravel while doing some heavy repairs, dropping stuff on them, and I even wore them all through vacation in AZ and walked who knows how many miles in them with no issues at all. These are by far the most comfortable boots I have ever had, and I have had a LOT of boots over the years. The only small fitment issues is they are a little tight across the top of my foot – not as noticeable while walking, but definitely noticeable while sitting in one spot for too long. If/when I wear these out, I’m sure I will get another pair of these or ones like them!
Very comfortable work boots good design and very light use them as my daily!! ? (Also Thanks Amazon?).

I have heard and seen these boots in action and they perform above what is expected. If you are on your feet all day walking on hard surfaces such as; wear houses, hard packed ground, or tile laid floors your feet and body will have a measure of relief at the end of your day.
Comfortable boot to wear all day. True to size. Very easy break in.

Comfort while on my feet for 10 hours. Not bulky, light, supportive. Durability through all types of terrain and great waterproof ability.

I bought these for my husband for Christmas and he loves them! They fit true to his size
Love them so far. Comfortable from the first time I wore them.
This is the 2nd pair ivr purchased fir my son. He loves them.
My husband has more of a narrow foot and these fit perfecthe loves em and that doesn’t come easy! Ha
I can’t believe how much he loves em!! Waterproof, great looking, NON steel toe, grippy-no slip tread was key. CHECK, CHECK, CHECK. Hope y’all will keep making these great boots.
This is my 2nd pair of Ariat boots. I will be a repeat customer for life! This boot has everything you’re looking for: Steel toe, fantastic leather quality, fashionable, waterproof, very comfortable all day insoles. All for a very reasonable price considering the expert craftsmanship you’re getting! Highly recommend!

Just delivered. Fast shipping. Perfect fit/true to size. If it is as rugged as my last groundbreaker boot I will keep buying Ariat. This pair is waterproof, so I will it to put to the test. I though about buying the Cottonwood workhog but for the reviews and price I stuck with the groundbreaker.

Love these boots for work and play. Light weight and comfortable. Long lasting.The water proof feature is a nice also. Easy to pull on. Super boot
I’ve had this pair of boots for more than 6 months now. I wear them daily. I’ve only wrote some Travis shoes a handful of times compared to my boots. I wear them to work and regular use. They’re comfortable, waterproof, and durable. I recommend them. I’ll be getting another pair soon so I can use the older pair for running around doing dirtier work.
I bought these a few months ago, and they are great, I work as a mechanic, on my feet 10 hours a day, and there comfortable all day long, also great with the slip resistance, walk on oil all day with no problems.
Awesome work boots and comfort from the get go.

Bought my 1st pair of Groundbreaker Wide Square Toe boots over 2 years ago. Very comfortable and durable. Liked em so much, I bought a 2nd pair when I wore them out! Definitely recommend Ariat boots to everyone.

I bought these boots 4 months ago and I’ve never been more impressed with a pair of work boots. They break in fast, clean up very nicely, and feel great even after a 12-16 hour shift.
