Lovely boots but not for me

I adore Ariat riding boots! I had one of their very first dressage boots and then several paddock boots. These unfortunately had to be returned.

First, the longest part of the toe is too close to the center and bends the big toe inward, so if you don't already have bunions you might after spending time in these (somewhat exaggerating but not much). Second, a large oval piece of leather with a hard ridge all around is sewn into the insole at the heel. I found it mildly irritating the bottom of my heel in medium weight socks.

They felt pretty nice otherwise, were easy to pull on and off a medium sized leg, and felt secure on the foot.
The leather quality and finish is OK, not a fine leather product but better than some.
They do look nice- nice styling and sturdily made.
A great buy on sale if they fit you.
