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.

Sadly, many of the previous reviews are correct. These are beautiful boots, but the shaft is very narrow. I am an equestrian, so have owned many pairs of Ariat boots over the years. I have a normal calf width and have never had a problem with fit, but I couldn't zip these, even with the elastic. Had to return them.

Great shoe, but as most have said runs big. I tend to fit into 9-9.5 and these I wear a 8.5. But wonderful shoe. A bit stiff at first, but anticipate it will loosen a big being leather.

Another review I read warned me about this sandal being very wide but it was too cute to pass up. Unfortunately I too found it way too wide. Also feel that the leather at the toe would have rubbed if I had worn them around a little longer. I had to return.

I really like the look of these boots. A little rugged, but not too much; a good style between casual and dressy, and mostly comfortable for all day wear and walking around (I bought in advance of a vacation with a LOT of walking planned). The downside, as other reviewers have also noted, is the they are very stiff around the ankle at the top of the boot. I have been wearing them partially unzipped and that has worked well. The footbed part is very comfortable and with socks that come up higher than the boot, and leggings that tuck in, they have been okay. I hope the leather losens up a little and they become more comfortable in time, but even still, I'm pretty happy with this purchase.

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 love the look of these and the bed is comfy too. One shoe is a bit snug across the bridge of my foot, but the other is perfect. Easy on and off but no slippage when walking. Cute, cute!

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.

These shoes was really uncomfortable for me. I wore them to work hoping that I would get used to the fit, but by the end of the day they were rubbing the inside of my heel raw.

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.
