Western boot comfort and style for the modern cowgirl! Ariat exclusive ATS technology supports and cushions as you move, promoting good posture and reducing fatigue. At the core of ATS technology is the Ariat ATS composite shank. This patented shank design reduces skeletal and muscular fatigue and injury. Mid-foot support reduces metatarsal stress. The forked shank design allows natural forefoot flex. The ATS footbed has a low-friction surface to protect from heat build-up and blistering. Shock-absorbing gel forefoot cushion reduces skeletal impact stress on knees, hips, and lower back. Cupped footbed chassis offers torsional stability. This Ariat Legend Bramble cowboy boot features a soft full grain black leather foot under a fancy stitched and embroidered 15" matching leather shaft. White leather piped shaft seam and scalloped shaft opening. Leather lined. Handy spur ridge. Double stitched Goodyear welt. Modern square toe. 1 3/4" unit heel.
I got these boots to ride in primarily- with the longer shaft keeps stirrups and your pants from getting tangled, and spur ridge is useful (if you need it). I was looking for boots that weren't gawdy- seems like most chick boots are just absolutely hideous. I was looking for something that was relatively plain, for a fair amount of money.
You cannot beat the price- total was 150$ w/ shipping, etc. I saw the same boot elsewhere for @ the 300$ mark. (Locally, as well as at other online retailers). I DON'T like buying boots/shoes, etc online, but for the price- I had to take a chance and I'm glad I did!
I fallowed recommendation get get a half size smaller than my normal shoes, and fit great. At first I thought they didn't- but they come with a little insert telling you how they are supposed to fit initially (very handy if you aren't really a cowboy boot-wearing type of person). They weren't hard to break in at all- after a few days of wearing them they broke in nicely (getting better every time I wear them). The only issue I had in regards to braking them in, were the sides of the real seem to be stiffer and would kinda dig in a bit. Even still, had no blisters, etc.
They are easy to clean, and easy to pull on and off. They keep your feet relatively dry (not waterproof by any means)- trampling thru mud, etc- you can't sit in a puddle or hose them down and expect to be dry, tho.
If you are ANY shorter than I am (I am 5'2") then these will probably be too long. At my height, they are long enough to cover my calf, but not long enough to get in the way of my knees.
Good quality leather and stitching, and good sole. If you are worried about re-soling rubber, as it turns out- ariat will re-sole them for you when the time comes (not for free, but I was very happy about that).
They look good enough to wear out on the town (if you are into that kinda thing) and useful enough to do work in. If comes a time when I need to replace these boots, I would get another pair without question. Tho, seems to me, I'll probably have these boots for a long, long time.
