From the rodeo to the show ring, Ariat has what it takes to make every child a world champion. By combining high quality leathers with Ariat technology, their boots provide the cushioning, support and fit essential for a child's growing feet.

In 1990, Ariat International co-founders Beth Cross and Pam Parker set out to create a new company and a new way of thinking about footwear for riders. They realized that traditional English and Western riding boots were stiff, heavy, and hard on children's feet and not very well suited for riding. Both riders with backgrounds in the athletic shoe industry, they realized the unique needs of young equestrians both in the saddle and on the ground.

They assembled a group of top footwear engineers and designers, and set them on the task of creating the world's most technically innovative performance riding boots. They started by re-designing the outsole, rethinking the arch support system and finally taking a hard look at the suitability of "traditional" last shape and fit. While they were building the technology platform for Ariat Kids boots, they were also talking to hundreds of top riders who helped in the design and development of the final product.

In 1993, Ariat shipped their first pair of boots, and today Ariat is the world leader in performance equestrian footwear, offering a full range of English and Western riding boots and casual footwear for kids. Whether your child is training to be a professional equestrian athlete or they're a novice rider, you will find an Ariat Kids boot with the performance technology that is perfect for them.

These boots/shoes are comfortable for my active 6 yo boy to wear to church or any occasion that requires him to wear something other than running/playing shoes.

A little flashy with bright accents, stitching and room for his toes, made a big-for-his-age three year old very happy in these boots. He pulled them on and began to demonstrate how he can run and jump while wearing these boots. I appreciate the leather uppers and non-slip soles. He wears them from morning until night, even during his nap.

These boots are adorable. I got them for my little girl for her 10th birthday and she loves them. They are a little big but are fine with a pair of thicker socks for now. They are made very well and I think they will hold up well.

I bought these for my 9 year old son and he loves them. He took them right out of the box put them on and said he couldnt wait to wear them to school the next day and that's what he did. The top part of the boot is soft as some reviewers have stated, but my son happened to like them that way, he thought it was easier to get his jeans over it. The color of the boots is exactly what he wanted too.

My son absolutely loves his boots! He wears a 4 in tennis shoes so we ordered a 4 in the boots, the boots are quite loose compared to them. The shaft of the boot is nice and loose so they already feel “broke in” and comfortable.

I bought these boots for my 6 year old son and he is so very proud to be able to match his pipeliner daddy. They seem to fit perfectly and they're not clunky! He asks to wear them everyday. I will be ordering another pair of these boots.

We love Ariat boots. They last through 1-2 season for each of our 3 girls and their little cousin. Superb quality is an understatement.

Really nice boots. My grandsons measured a 5 so I though with sock and the difficulty it can be to slide boots on/off, I would get a 6. Way too big. So big that I got the size 5 that he measured . He still has plenty of grow room with the thick boot socks!

I bought these for my 8 year old son. THe boots are beautifully crafted, the quality is superior, the length was perfect but my son kept complaining hey felt narrow at the ankle level. I originally got him a size 4 and exchanged for a size 5. He complained about the same issue with both. He has a wide foot so I am not sure if that played a role. If your child has a normal foot these may fit ok. If his foot had been a little longer I would’ve kept them for myself :)

These are just awesome little boots ... cute as a button and well made. I thought my three year old granddaughter was going to balk at them, but she loved them! She had no trouble putting them on, climbed a tree in them, and would not take them off until she finally ended up with a blister on her ankle. Lesson learned: wear them with socks.

I love these boots! For me though, I had to order a half size bigger because my usual size was too snug. No problem though because the customer service person nailed it when I called to return the first pair and get a size bigger.

This is the 4th pair of this exact boot that we've purchased over the years. My older son outgrows them quicker than he wears them out, so they get passed down to my younger son. Awesome quality, justifies the price.

So I ordered a 2.5 for my six year old son. He has super thick wide feet, and these fit him well. I usually order up a size from what I think he would wear right now, and after reading review, I went up only a half size and they fit pretty well...may not make the full year we have come to expect from ariats for that reason. I thought quality was good. My kids actually USE them on the farm and have been know to wear thru real leather boots, so will see how they last, but so far, so good. The one comment I have is the the rubber sole is a little less fashionable than I thought. It's all kind of a one color tan...I thought the heal would "look" more like stacked wood , or darker.I realize these are kids boots, and they are not the same as me buying a $300 pair of boots, but it looked just a little cheesy. They will scuff up soon enough, so wouldn't keep me from buying again. The turquoise stripe noted in another review was fine...bright enough to be noticeable, but not too flashy for a boy.

These boots were adorable but way too big for my daughter. She usually wears a 3.5 and these were bigger than the size 4 that we ordered in another boot. Super cute but just not the right size.

While these boots were gorgeous--high quality, beautifully crafted with all the greatness I have loved about Ariat for myself, the fit was all wrong for my daughter. They ran really big, and even after sizing down a whole size, they still weren't the fit we were hoping for, so ended up returning. Even if the foot had fit, the shaft was very wide on my daughter's leg, and they looked way too big all around.
