About Ariat Boots

In 1993, Ariat co-founders Beth Cross and Pam Parker set out to create a new company that would revolutionize footwear for riders. They understood that traditional riding boots were stiff, heavy and hard on the feet. So they assembled a group of top footwear engineers and designers to create the world’s most innovative performance riding boots for both English and Western riders. Today, Ariat is America’s number one English and Western performance footwear brand. More than 20 years after its founding, Ariat continues to push the boundaries of style and technology. Ariat is a great brand for first-time boot buyer who want an “everyday” boot known for comfort.

How Ariat Boots Fit

Ariats can run a bit larger. Suggested sizing is true to size or ordering ½ size smaller than your street shoe size.

When you slide your foot into a boot, use either boot pulls to pull it on while sitting, or stand up into the boots. A well-fitting boot should fit your heel snugly. Expect a small amount of movement (lift) in the heel as you walk, because a boot that fits properly should flex as you walk, and your heel should lift a little, but not too much. New boots will have a stiffer sole. As you break in the boot, the sole will flex to a comfortable level and most slippage should stop.

Our resident boot model says, “These boots are true to size, easy to get on and off, and comfortable beyond belief. As one of my co-workers put it, you could run a marathon in these boots they are so comfortable. I’ve never had a problem with the sizing of these boots.”
