I wear these boots to work regularly and they are great! They are extremely comfortable and rugged. I walk a lot and spend a lot of time on construction sites so I need tough boots. These are the best. I could use 2 more pairs!
I borrowed a pair of Ariat hikers from a friend when I went to Iceland for 11 days. I loved them, rode for days, and hiked all over. No blisters, lots of room for warmer socks. I decided to buy a pair of my own. Have to say I do like them, but disappointed on the padding. The older pair has a nice soft fluffy top and extra padding in the boot, also the tongue of the boot is very thick, could not even feel the laces. Ariat must have decided to save a few pennies and cut down on that. I find the boot now moves around more, and I had to find something to put under the tongue to stop the laces digging in. It is to bad they decided to do that. . Went from an amazing boot you could wear all day, to one you wear to ride, put your horse away, and take them off.
