I can say that my review will be slightly tainted by the fact that the Ariat boot showed up in the wrong calf size. It might actually be a contender in the right measurements, but we shall see...
I'll save my official opinions for when I actually try the things on with breeches, socks and a slightly leased manic evaluation of the overall design and quality, but I will say that my initial front runner was a mental underdog.
Boots, boots, boots.... It's like Christmas in July!
