Ariat was founded with the simple objective: To create the most advanced performance footwear and apparel for the world's top equestrian athletes. We're driven by world class design, innovation and technology - all focused on delivering the highest-quality, authentic Western and English footwear and apparel. We at Clogs Unlimited have been carrying Ariat for a number of years now, not because of the western styling, which we love, but because they are also some incredibly comfortable shoes.
