Established in California in 1993, Ariat was founded with the sole purpose of producing a ‘New Breed of Boot’. Named after the famous racehorse ‘Secretariat’, Ariat were the first boot maker to introduce athletic footwear technology into boots for equestrian athletes. This has expanded to cover the making of world-class, award-winning products for all types of work and country pursuits.
A premium quality product needs great design, materials and craftsmanship. Ariat’s footwear team gives thorough attention to every single detail of their shoes and boots – combining durable leather and accurate stitching on areas of wear on each of their boots.
This detail may involve up to 150 different elements of production of an Ariat product, all of which result in boots of world class fit, durability and performance. This philosophy is also followed with the manufacturing of their range of sustainable clothing.
