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.

Really soft leather. You can tell these boots are very high quality. Wish they had them in a black pair and I’d buy those too

I ordered a half size up to be able to wear thin socks with these mules (after originally ordering and returning my usual size). They fit perfectly! I wore them all day yesterday and have them on now. Comfortable and stylish, great way to dress up jeans a little. Since mules usually aren't my thing, I like to have the strap over my heel most of the time. Nice colder weather shoes that have a boot-like quality. Have owned Ariats before, they are tops!

LOVE THESE BOOTS! This is my 3rd pair of Ariat boots. They are so comfortable and very well made - my other two pair are in great shape despite frequent wear since purchasing them 15 years ago!! The embroidery is very well done on these. I got the black with white embroidery - lots of compliments!

These boots are amazing! My foot is short and wide... I wish the boots weren’t as narrow, but they’re definitely more forgiving than my Frye boots. As with most shoes, I ordered a half size up to make up for the width being a bit narrow. I wear an 8 in everything (7.5 fits but I get an 8 to give me more width), and the 8 in these fits great. They look sort of long at first, but the more I wear them, the more I love them. Also, I’m an ex-soccer player so my calves are large... my calves fit just fine into these boots with room leftover. I can easily wear with skinny jeans, if I want. Love the style too; they’re super cute! Some color but not too much. Just perfect.

So disappointed that I couldn’t keep them loved the look/style but sizing is not true to other Ariats I’ve owned before. My size was too short and the next size up was too wide and roomy, the heel cup was too loose and slipped up and down enough to cause blisters. Having trouble getting app to let me return so I guess I’ll have to call.

Just a little narrow in the toe area (maybe not surprising with style) - I’m sure they will stretch out & be perfect! Love them!

I loved this shoe; very good looking and beautiful leather. However, because of fairly recent heel surgery, there did not seem to be enough padding in the heel, plus the shoe just didn't fit my old feet correctly. I think for most people, this would be an excellent choice. I would have tried a smaller size if the heel had had a little more padding, but turned out to not be for me. The search continues (sigh)!

Purchased for my husband who is 6'8" who has previously been loyal to The Buckle brand jeans only because they were the only brand he could find his 36" inseam in a variety of washes and styles however he constantly felt like they were wearing out. So I did some shopping around and found these! Hoping they hold up with normal wear and don't give out after a few month wear like the other comfortable denim brands that have a touch of spandex in them for flexible give. He is tall with long lean legs and these fit perfectly without being to baggy in the thighs or butt. Fit perfect with his cowboy boots he wears daily for work.

Beautiful boot. Exactly what I was looking for in terms of style. Ordered a 10.5 and it was definitely too big. My feet measure 11” and 10.5”. I could easily put my entire hand behind my heel inside the boot.

Even in the South, we have cold, wet days when boots and socks are needed. These are a good cross between dress and casual. I could not give them 5 stars because, like most boots, they are stiff at first.

This is my first time wearing this brand. I have had them a couple weeks and so far, I Love them. They are just starting to break in and hit the real comfort zone. The boots are pretty stiff out of the box. Its worth the wait. The padded tongue is soft and comfy.

These are not as supportive as the waterproof version. I ordered one of each so I was able to compare them right out of the box and this pair has an extremely flexible sole whereas the waterproof version feels like it has a metal shank which I need for support. I like the style of these but had to return and kept the brown waterproof ones.

I was very disappointed by these. The foot is good and narrow for me and the lenth was fine, since I ordered a half size smaller after reading other reviews. But - the aggressive "arch support" absolutely killed it for me. I've never seen anything quite like it. The heel is perhaps at least half an inch higher than the forefoot, on this inside of this boot. So, you have a flat heel insole, then a rather steep down ramp, then a flat toe area. The feel for me is that the "arch support" runs all the way across my foot, from the inside arch to the outer edge and is like standing on a stick. I have high arches and a narrow foot, and I always wear near flat sole shoes like Converse or Ecco casuals. These boots aggressively contain and shape your foot, and would be best if you want a shoe that does that. P S: I wish Zappos would stop called it "excellent arch support." I have to search for shoes that say poor or no arch support, which is hard to search for.

Love these. Very comfortable and stylish. When I first put the right shoe on it felt a bit snug (bigger foot) but after walking in them around the house they are perfect. Buckle is adjustable and it doesn't rattle for me as others have said. Really love these

I liked it but the they were too long and not wide enough. Had a gotten a smaller size for length the width would have been off even more. Nice looking boot though.

These boots are amazing! I hate a big clunky boot. Especially with how I'm constantly moving around, up and down off the truck, through rain and mud. These Ariat boots are very light and they feel like a pair of tennis shoes on my feet. I'm 6'4" 250 lbs. and I'm hard on boots. But so far these boots seem to be pretty tough. And they have the main qualities I was looking for: waterproof, good support, traction, and composite toes.

I wish these weren’t tight in the thighs as they looked a bit off. Also, I wanted some design on the back pocket but it was a bit much being on the side as well as on the front. Will send them back.

I am so excited about these boots! I'm a runner and have "athletic" calves- approx. 15.5 inches, and these are one of the first pairs of boots that fit me perfectly. I've tried wide-calf boots only to have to return them because they are way too wide and look like pirate boots. The stretch panel on the back of these boots makes them fitted and most important, comfortable. They are easy to put on and look cute. I'm also happy that they are water proof as winter in Chicago is wet.
