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.

These are great boots! I normally wear a 6.5 shoe and ordered that size. They fit perfectly, no cramped toes in these boots! I couldn't believe how comfortable they are for a boot! I got home from work and my package had arrived. I immediately tried them on and wanted to wear them all night, really comfy boots. Highly recommend.

These are the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever had. I came here to order the Aztec but they are gone. I was able to wear them all day with no problems.

I actually planned to send these back, but I never got around to it. They are very tight and make me feel like a sausage. The contrast of the dark and the fade is more than I like. That said, I do wear them on skinny days and with tall boots and a longer top, they look fine.

I am not a cowboy boot gal but needed these for an event. I really love these!! Very comfy to wear.Also i sometimes need “large calf “ boots even though I am not overweight and these were perfect because they are not too high. Really happy with this purchase. So many compliments. The white stitching is really nice... decorative but classy and not over the top which is good for someone like me who is not too into the whole cowboy thing.

I loved this shoe, but the sole wasn't as thick as I would like and overall a flatter shoe that I normally wear. I did return and bought the same brand in a different style that had a thicker sole. I absolutely LOVE it!

cute boot, I liked the fact it was a square toe and waterproof, but they were extremely tight. I always wear a size 8 in Ariat, but these run very small and narrow.

The boot looks great and the fit is about a half size larger. Generally a 9.5 and a 9 fit perfectly. They are also fairly comfortable. The downside with these boots is that the leather is not the highest quality. They easily scuff and compared to other shoes I have do not think these will hold up very well. With that said for the cost and look the cost is reasonable.

Love these shoes. I bought a very similar style 3-4 yrs ago and they have been a favorite. Needless to say, I was excited to see these shoes offered by the same manufacturer. I am similarly happy with these and their comfort . With foot problems these shoes are a true blessing .

Nice looking boot but a bit on the stiff side especially at the upper part of the boot where it hits your legs. I'm 67 years old and my legs are thin but very sensitive and I found this boot bothered my legs when I walked. The fit was true to size, but a think it was a bit narrow so if I wanted to wear a heavy pair of sock with this boot it may have felt too tight. It's a good looking boot style wise, though. But I did return these as I felt they just didn't work well for me. However, I do think others who's legs aren't as sensitive as mine will find these boots work just fine for them. Thank you, Zappos, for letting me return them without any return shipping charges.

This is my third pair of Ariat's and this Rambler is by far the most comfortable. These are a solid quality boot. I wear a women size 9-9.5 and the size 9 fit me perfect. No need to beak these boots in, they are a soft yet durable sole. Like others have stated, I too wish the stitching on the toe box was a lighter color brown than the leather so it stands out more but they are still great looking. Thankfully the reverse seams down the sides/on the back and square toe box give it plenty of style. P.S. not sure why the video shows a totally different style boot than the photos? Luckily the boot in the photos is what I wanted and received. Thank you Zappos for the great service :-)

Great alternative to sneakers. Love the leopard print. Sizing seems off - my regular sneaker size is 6 1/2 or 7 and I had to order these in a size 6. Would like the option of neutral colored laces (tan or brown) but can't seem to find any. I just noticed the leopard print is on sale now...too bad I paid full price.

The white stripe visible at the bottom of the shoe makes it look too informal to be used as a dress shoe with dress pants.

This is my second pair of Ariat boots and I love them. Excellent quality, soles and uppers wear very well and hands down the most comfortable boots I’ve ever owned. These took about 4-5 wearings before they broke in and now it’s like not wearing anything at all.

I love the way this boot fits, the only thing I would change is for this boot to have a smaller circumference in the shaft. I like wear my boots under my jeans and the shaft is too wide for it to look good under the jeans.

Bought these for my daughter who rides horses. She is so picky with any shoe that “takes effort” to get on. She has a pretty wide foot also. But these were perfect! They slipped right on (and off) and she loves that.
