Georgia Dixon reviews…
It may seem like Christmas isn’t really that close, but let’s be honest, it’s close enough to start thinking about what you want to ask your other half, your family and/or your friends to get you and I think this is the perfect present to get you through the long winter.
When Eventing Worldwide asked me to review these boots I was very excited as I’ve always been a fan of Ariat boots in the past and so I had high expectations. It is safe to say, the Stoneleigh H20 boots did not tarnish my expectations and certainly exceeded them!
Ariat’s Stoneleigh H20 boots aren’t only stylish, they’re waterproof, warm and practical. What more could you want? The boots feature a waterproof, full grain leather upper and a waterproof membrane construction. I decided to put this to the test and so I used the boots to walk my courses whilst I was out eventing. Not only were they comfortable and fit like a glove, they kept my feet and my legs dry when walking through water jumps, meaning I could walk every line exactly.
The Stoneleigh H20 boot also fits perfectly and there’s no struggle when putting them on like there can be with similar long boot styles. This is down to the full length medial YKK zipper and dual stretch gore panels. I personally feel that this is one of the best features of the boot as there’s nothing worse than trying to shove my heel through the leg and ankle of some similar style boots that don’t have zippers. They’re also available in half sizes which I think is so important as I’m in between a 5 and a 6 and it’s so difficult to find boots in sizes 5.5 anymore.
These boots incorporate the use of Ariat’s ATS technology which offers all of the stability and comfort you could possibly wish for. BUT, it doesn’t stop there. They also feature a moisture wicking and gel cushioned footbed with heel stabilisers for shock absorption. This means that these boots are incredibly comfortable aswell as stylish. When I wore these boots to a local event everyone was commenting on how smart they looked. I’ve even partnered them with a traditional tweed skirt and they looked extremely fashionable giving me added country wear style.
Personally, I 100 percent recommend these boots to everyone. Whether you’re an equestrian supporter, a rider or just a fan of country wear, these boots are certainly for you. You won’t find a more practical, comfortable yet stylish boot around. You genuinely have to try them to understand just how good they are! I’m very impressed.
