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.

Ariat is one of my favorite brands. I have two pairs of Ariat cowboy boots, and unlike my leather boots/shoes in other brands (Dansko, Born, Earth) the leather of my Ariats just continues to get better! These are not the same style, but Ariat sold me with the other boots I have; they will last as long as I do! These seem to run a little bit narrower than my other Ariats, but it may be due to the quality leather that will eventually soften. They are pull on (no zipper) but that was not a problem over my regular (not thick) socks. I'm deciding between three different pairs of ankle boots but will update this review if I decide to keep them. They are in the lead, currently.

Beautiful boot, looked a bit large on my foot with skinny jeans. Looking for something a little sleeker, so I will return.

I love them! I normally wear a size 9EE , so that’s what I ordered. When I tried them on they felt comfortable but there was too much heel slippage. After wearing them around the house for a day they seemed to loosen up even more. So, I returned the 9s and ordered 8.5EEs. At first they felt very snug, but after wearing them around the house for awhile they really seemed to loosen up and form to my foot. That weekend we got about 8 inches of snow, so I figured that would be the perfect time to test how waterproof they are. It was a little difficult getting the boots on with winter socks, but manageable. I ended up wearing them for about six hours in the snow. My feet never got damp or cold. I know these aren’t listed as insulated, but I found that the winter socks I wore were enough to keep my feet comfortably warm the whole time (granted I never really stopped moving). After wearing them in the snow all day, my boots formed to my feet like a glove. They’re the most comfortable boots I own!

I ordered a size 6 and a size 6 1/2 in this shoe because I wasn’t sure which size to get. The 6 1/2 slipped a lot at the back & was still too big with thick socks. The size 6 fits good and doesn’t slip. These are very comfortable. The material is soft and feels good. I love that the leopard print isn’t as bold as some of the other brands. The red on this shoe gives it the perfect pop of color.

My normal size is a 7 1/2 and this shoe fits perfectly in that size. Except that I would like a bit more width. That's why I ordered the size 8, sometimes that works. Not here, though. The shoe was a true size 8 and too long for me, so I've exchanged it for my tried and true 7 1/2, which I buy every year.

I buy this same shoe every year when the weather gets cold. I hope they never change it. It's very sturdy both in the sole and in the body, giving me the support I need to hike around with feet that need all the help they can get. This shoe has never let me down or worn out appreciably. Well made product.

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.

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.
