Join Keir from Ariat as she answers the question, "how should tall boots fit"? When buying new tall boots, it's important to make sure they fit properly. To ensure a precise fit, make sure you're wearing something that's representative of what you wear when you ride. First sit in a straight chair with your feet flat on the ground and bend your legs at a 90-degree angle. For greatest accuracy, have another person measure your calves and be sure the measure the widest part of your calf. For height, measure up from the back of your heel on the ground to the bend in the back of your knee. When you receive your Ariat tall boots, try them on. They should fit snuggly, but not uncomfortably. When you're zipping your tall boots up you should feel comfortable pressure; you don't want them to zip too easily. Tall boots will stretch a bit with wear and you won't want them to be too loose. They should zip up to the bend in the back of your knee. In some cases they might be a little tall, but keep in mind that you will get a slight amount of drop depending on the softness of the leather.
