Ariat

Ariat Logo
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 the feet — not very well suited for riding. Both riders with backgrounds in the athletic shoe industry, they realized the unique needs of equestrians — both in the saddle and on the ground — and the performance-enhancing benefits that could be brought to riding boots to give these athletes an edge.

So 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 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, work boots and casual footwear — plus new lines of performance apparel and accessories to fully outfit today´s equine athletes and equestrian-inspired lifestyle enthusiasts.

Whether you are a professional equestrian athlete or a novice rider, you will find an Ariat boot with the performance technology that is perfect for you. Ariat boots cushion the foot while stabilizing the heel and arch, dramatically reducing fatigue and stress to the feet, legs and lower back. This amazing technology can also be found in a variety of casual Ariat shoes — providing you with comfortable and stylish alternative for those relaxed, easy-going days.

I wear a size 7 but in these boots I wear a 7 1/2. I love them and I wear them everyday. I’ve worn them horseback riding, touring Europe and to work everyday. This is my second pair. Since they are so comfortable I wanted to have a second pair. I have a third pair of Fat Baby but I don’t like them. The Russet Rebels are the ones I love and are the most comfortable. I also love the dark color.

Fantastic quality boot! It is beautiful and sturdy, pretty stylish too! I have large calves but you can adjust the lacing to accommodate athletic calves. The boot is tall and I am 5'8 and the hit just below my knees. Worth the money, so splurge!

I normally wear an 8W but based on the reviews ordered 7 and 7.5. I am returning them and hope they have a size 8 left. With a wool or hiking sock the 7.5 is too small, might have worked with a thin sock, but that's not what I'm going to wear with this boot. Super cute though!

When I first tried them on, they felt very snug. I have a narrow foot and very skinny ankles, so I was fine with the fit. After wearing them a few times, they loosened up a bit and now I can even fit an insole inside! I love having a versatile boogie that is waterproof and warm. I like to travel to places that sometimes have rainy weather and these will definitely come in handy.

I love these for day hiking and walking my corgi. They are light weight and supportive without feeling like boats. The 10 1/2 fits perfectly on my 10 1/2 low volume feet. If they hold up and last at least a couple of years they will be the best hiking shoe I have ever had. Only one complaint, the shoe laces are too short. I had to buy a longer pair to be able to keep them tied.

Real beauties! I am in love. Removable Ariat foot bed with moderate support can be replaced with the Ariat pro pointy toe foot beds. Did I mention many compliments on the first day of wear? Beautiful details and expected fit truer to size. ??

These were a great birthday gift! i ordered 3 different pairs of Ariats & he chose these. His foot is narrow & these fit very well. The sole is grippy, the boot is well-made & they look fantastic!

I live on a farm and have worn Muck boots for a few years, but they only come in full sizes. I am an 8.5 (39 Euro) with a very narrow foot and heel. The Mucks are hopelessly wide, essentially unisex, and while nicely padded, I just slosh around in them. The Ariats come in half sizes, and are far better fitted for a woman’s foot. They are narrower than the Mucks, and thus significantly more comfortable. They are also very nice looking. They might not work so well for a gal with big calves. I’m very glad I bought them. Far better fit than Mucks.

I did return these but only because i found a pair of Sorrel's while shopping out of town that I can't return. Very cute boots and seemed like they would be comfortable. Easy to take on and off but I would think these would go best with taller socks so that they don't rub the top of your leg.

I really liked this boot and the dark brown color - the style is sassy and creative but! it seems to run really small so I am returning them and keeping the pair in Tawny that I ordered sized up a whole size.

I'm so happy I did I love it ! It is exactly what I hoped it would be - it fits and its so soft !I can wear it with lots of things - matches my grey ugg boots - I'll get a lot of wear out of this here in Santa Fe !

Sizing is off. I wear a 9 in running shoes. Ordered a 8 wide and 8.5 regular. The 8 wide was too sloppy. The 8.5 regular felt just right when I bought them, but now a week later it still slips on the heal. The 8 regular felt too small at the time, but I probably should have gotten that and let it loosen up. Love the boots, but the sizing is really frustrating.

Love the color of them. They are so comfortable. My new favorite shoe. I normally wear a 9 1/2 in the Ariat brand, but these run a half a size big. So I sized down to a 9 and they fit perfect

Great shoes for the price....stylish....a little cooler looking than your average slip on. I usually get Clarks but like the way these looked. I was pleased that they were true to size...I wear wide shoes and got these in wide. Perfect fit.

Gorgeous boots- I got the red ones. They felt snug when I put them on, but felt more and more comfortable as the day wore on. Feel like I could walk all day in them in comfort. I have a high arch, and find them so much more comfortable than many boots out there. I wear a 9.5- and that's what I ordered. Glad I didn't go up a size, or they would have felt sloppy. That being said, I'm not wearing thick socks with them. Quality, design are really top notch!

I like the color and details, and I ordered the small which fit (I am 32D, 130#) but shape was boxy, fabric was wrinkly, length was short and overall a huge disappointment.
