Ariat Fit Tips!
Premium full grain leather shaft with perforations make this boot soft to the touch; Gore stretch panel allow for generous fit; Elasticized instep provides more mobility and flex through foot and ankle;  If between calf measurements, opt for smaller calf; V Sport makes a great option for a rider wanting more accommodation through the foot of the boot

Additional Tips & Tricks

  •  Ariat uses the highest quality zippers, coiled YKK #10
  •  “Tall & Tight” is the motto. The zipper should not glide up easily, but it should NOT take you 40 minutes to zip them either
  • Height is correct when you see a “V” behind the knee when you do a slight squat
  •  You can expect a ¼” to a ½” drop in height in tall boots
  •  Heel lifts (or small tack sponge) can be used as an aid during break- in
  • Calf and height measurements change every other foot size on the ½ size.   So, 7.5 and 8 have the same measurements, as do 8.5 and 9

INSIDER EXCLUSIVE : This can work to your advantage! If an 8 slim is too tight and a 8 regular is too loose, then try the 8.5 slim since that will fall between the two calf sizes.

    Ariat® V Sport Zip Tall Boot - All Over Black is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 50.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite boots EVER! I have ridden in the Ariat V Sports for over 5 years now. They are the most comfortable boots ever and clean up beautifully. The new V Sport II is a bit different, a tad bigger in the footbed, and a little snugger in the calf so you may have to go up a size in the calf. Overall they are my number 1 boots and will continue to wear them always.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from No wear-in time, cleans easily I bought these about 2 months ago, and I hit the ground running wearing them 3-4 times weekly for 3-4 hours. There was literally no-wear in time for me! They fit perfectly from the start and never gave me any blisters or pressure points. I added heel lifts until the calf sunk down a little bit (brought my knee up into the right place), but I would do this with almost any boot. They were relatively cool in late August/early September. They look sharp, and I've only had compliments. Like riding in chaps in terms of leg grip, and I wipe them down after every ride (only condition maybe once monthly).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from best riding boot ever! Sporty, very comfortable and fit like a glove. I am now on my second pair. My first pair lasted me a solid 3+ years of very regular wear of riding, mucking, washing, etc. Great all around boot! I already bought my 3rd pair as back up because I'm concerned they will be discontinued.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from super comfortable Comfortable from the moment you put them on. Highly recommend!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable tall boot I bought these a while back but even now, after months of wearing them, they are the most comfortable tall boot I have ever owned and worn regularly. To insure the zipper moves smoothly, you have to make sure the "achilles guard" (flap of leather to protect the heel area is out of the way when you zip. This is achieved by bending at the ankle while standing and pulling just a little on the leather where the zipper is going up. Then there is no problem of the zipper getting caught on the protector flap. Small effort for a great boot!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A comfortable, stylish boot I'm so glad that the horse world is starting to accept some modernization to our equipment. The sneaker-like footbed, elasticated panels around the ankle and along the zipper, and perforated leather make this a very comfortable boot that performs well in the saddle. I purchased this boot for eventing competitions. I wear them in all three phases. I do not wear them much off the horse, though. These are riding boots, designed for riding - not course walks or stall mucking or clomping through muddy pastures. I find them comfortable to walk in, but I want them to last so I switch to my paddock boots when I'm done riding. I do have a bit of an issue with the zippers not staying up. They slowly work their way down over the course of an hour or so to where they are down past the top snap leather flap. I read that some people add a key ring to the zipper pull and loop the top snap leather flap through the key ring, so I'm going to try that.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The BEST boot ever I bought this boot after my Tredstep Donatelo boots broke on the third week. The insole is super supportive and comfortable. More comfortable than my Nike's. I love the perforated leather on the calf. Keeps my legs relatively dry during the summer heat. My feet don't go to sleep in the stirrups like they have with every other pair of boots I've ridden in. Highly recommend!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such a great purchase! I just got my new Ariat V Sports and I couldn’t be happier. I bought these to replace my trusty Tredsteps, which died after years of service. I was not looking forward to shopping for tall boots because it is SO hard for me to find any that fit my calf properly. I’m a plus sized rider, but I don’t have huge calves—often regularly sized boots like these are too small and plus sized boots are too huge. I got the extra wide in these and they fit like a glove!!! Plus, they are extremely comfortable! The soles are incredibly supportive both for absorbing shock while riding and for standing/walking for extended periods. The leg of these boots is also very supple and felt broken in on first wear. I would definitely recommend trying these out! The price tag made me balk a bit (yeah, I’m cheap) but they were definitely worth the cost. I can’t speak to their durability yet but I’m hopeful.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good every day boot I needed an everyday riding boot as I typically ride 3-5 horses a day and this boot has been perfect for it. On the downside, I noticed that the calf size was a bit looser than my other tall boots from Ariat even though it's the same calf/height/shoe size. Typically when I first buy tall boots and break them, in I can barely zip them up my calf until they're broken in but with the V Sport I was able to zip them up without any issues on the first day. The problem now is that they've stretched a bit and have a few wrinkles in the leather; however it doesn't impact my riding and is purely cosmetic. I've also noticed that the leather is very soft along the inner calf (which may contribute to how much they've stretched) and I am worried that down the road this boot will tear more easily than my other Ariats. Other than this, I really have no other complaints. They're lightweight, good looking, fit well around the ankle with good amount of flexibility, decently priced, and they barely took any time to break in. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for an everyday boot or something to school in, but I wouldn't recommend showing in it at rated shows. *For reference I took these pictures after I wore the boots 2 times

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Frustrating! The foot felt wonderful and I’m sure the calf would have fit but there was NO way to zip past the ankle. I don't have fat ankles... and I wore thin socks. Thin sock over skin over bone and the ankles were just too small. Ankle measurements should be given in the product sizing info. Had to be returned.
