My wife has two pair of Ariat boots and when I said I was interested in boots she highly recommended Ariats for their quality. I live in Maryland and the equestrian/tack shops inmy area all sell the Ariat English styles, not the western styles, which is what I wanted. I ordered the Ariat Sedona boots from the Ariat website. Within about a week they arrived. They look great, they fit great and they are surprisingly comfortable. Actually the other day after my shift at the fire station, I came home took off my work shoes and put on my Ariats to rest my feet because the Ariat Sedona boots are so comfortable! Great job Ariat. The only thing better would be if they were made in the USA instead of China.
Style # 10002192Sometimes basic is best. The Sedona's four-row stitch pattern lives on the boot's collar, keeping the uppers clean and simple.
- 4LR offers support and cushioning for everyday wear
- Duratread™ outsole provides maximum wear resistance and flexibility.
- Full-grain leather foot and upper
- R Toe Shape
- Four-row collar stitch pattern
I worked on a horse ranch in the cascade mountains of Washington State. If there is any place that would test a pair of leather boots it is there. Every day, more often than not while raining, I would walk the field through mud half-way up the boot to pull horses. I rode in the saddle with these every day and just lived in them. I did not even take good care of them, I mean a little mink oil here and there but I was not careful about it. Even so, these boots never failed me. Some small tears eventually formed where the boot bends to accommodate the foot/toe junction, but they were abused. I cleaned em up twice and went to two weddings. Looked fine. For the money, these boots are good quality. Highly recommend for ranch work/riding.
