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.

Soft enough to be comfy... tough enough to handle elements. Nice, understated design. Impressed!

I usually wear a 9.5 wide but find that the 9.5 is sufficient. Comfortable foot bed with massaging padding as the top layer of coverage in the insole. I adored my old Ariat Fuse & I am learning to love these just as much. Incredibly comfortable but the attached tongue is taking some time to become the new norm. I used to be a devout New Balance buyer, however the Ariat Fuse may have a new convert.

I think these are a nice looking pair of boots and I wish I could have worn them. I guess wide s not very wide anymore and that is where I have my problem with them. Other people I think will find these great.

Ariat is the best brand boot I’ve owned. I’ve had Georgia’s, Bean Boots, Rocky’s, and Timberlands. This is a quality product and most comfortable I’ve ever worn.

I ordered three different pairs of hiking boots after reading a lot of reviews. I really liked these, and for the price they are very nice. Nicer than many that cost lots more. Ultimately I ended up returning this and ended up with Merrill.

Like all Ariats these are cute and well made and if I had been able to get my high arch past the bottom of the shaft into the boot, I know they would have fit perfect. I was able to get the left boot on but not the right. They are adorable and even were plenty roomy for my big calves, but no good for super high arches. Super sad but the hunt continues

Love this shoe! It seemed a little large. I wear a 6, but it fits like a 6.5 which is okay. It is very comfortable and lightweight. The width seems fine as does the arch support. I teach and stand a lot and my feet felt wonderful at the end of the day.

I was very excited to get these but they are very uncomfortable and I have to return them. I've worn lots of Ariat boots and these are the only ones that haven't fit right. They are too tight over the top of my foot. The color is beautiful.

I wear these for work shoes as a remodel carpenter. Because I am in and out of finised homes they are great to slip on/off as needed when things are wet and muddy. No buckles to scratch floors when working on knees. For years I wore Solomon shoes exclusively because they fit my feet well. Since the solomons are falling aprart reguarlly after 9 or ten months(long before the soles wear down) I thought I would try something new. These fit my feet as well as solomons. My first pair of these are still going strong after nerly a year and have moderate sole wear. I got a second pair only because I love them so much and now considering ordering a 3rd as backup to keep around.

I liked them at first but after wearing them for a day the bottom of my feet hurt. The bottom half of the footbed is leather and the top part is suede. I wish it was all just leather.

Love Ariat boots, but Im not crazy about their shoes. The are very stiff and take a lot of wearing to break in. Couldn’t resist the pink so I tried them. Better than most Ariat shoes. Fits snuggly but not too tight. Can’t wear a sock but I suspect they will stretch plenty so I eventually can.

These are the kind of boots you can wear all day. If anyone would have trouble, I would- I have lots of hardware in my feet and scoliosis. They are my second pair. I still wear my first pair for dirtier jobs. The only thing I don’t like about this particular style is the pull on tabs as opposed to the holes. They just aren’t as handy when you’re in a hurry to run out the door (literally- on the rescue squad and time is of the essence), but that’s just a personal preference. Craftsmanship and details are definitely unique.

The day I found out Ariat made some women's boots in wide width my life changed. I have another pair of paddock boots i wear at the barn; these were purchased purely for everyday wear and they do NOT disappoint. Stylish, comfortable, and true to size! I did add some gel heel pads to precent slippage and blisters while I break them in.
