Ariat women's shoes

Comfortable, stylish footwear is just as important when you’re off the horse as on. Ariat shoes are made to take comfort and style with you wherever you find yourself walking. In this guide, we’ll explore the types and features of Ariat women’s shoes, including what you need to know about Ariat shoe sizing. Finally, we’ll highlight three of the most popular Ariat athleisure shoes here at The Farm House, all of which are perfect for wearing around town. 

Why Choose Ariat Shoes?

Ariat shoes don’t just look great — they are made with the same level of commitment the brand is known for when it comes to creating high-quality, well-designed, and durable equestrian footwear. Backed by nearly 30 years of experience, Ariat’s extensive selection of comfortable, high-quality women’s boots and shoes have made them a favorite of English riders around the world.

How Do Ariat Shoes Fit?

Ariat is known for its consistent sizing. Once you’ve found the right size in Ariat footwear, whether a tall boot, paddock boot, or casual shoe, you’ll be able to order other Ariat footwear with confidence that they’ll fit perfectly. Ariat’s commitment to quality control in manufacturing makes it simple to find the best fit every time. In addition, their top-quality construction means the shoes will maintain their original size and shape even after heavy use.

Do Ariat Shoes Run True to Size?

Similar to the brand’s riding boots, Ariat’s shoes tend to run true to size or just a bit large. For your first pair, consider ordering a half-size smaller than your typical street shoe size. Once you have the sizing nailed down, you’ll be able to confidently order other Ariat boots and shoes in that same size. 

Ariat Shoes Size Charts

Ariat women’s shoes can be purchased in sizes from 5.5 to 11.  Use the Ariat women’s shoe size chart below to find your size.

Styles of Ariat Boots and Shoes 

Ariat makes a variety of footwear types, including tall boots, paddock boots, and casual shoes. Each style is designed specifically for the activity it supports. 

Ariat tall riding boots are designed to be worn during more formal riding events like competitions. This type of riding boot typically features a polished, full-grain leather that covers the entire calf. Stylish accents like a stitched toe cap and Spanish topline conceal comfort-first features like a full-length elastic band for easy movement and anti-shock insoles.

Ariat paddock boots are designed for everyday riding and working around the ring. They have less formal styling and are designed to keep your feet comfortable during all-day wear. Paddock boots still feature soft, full-grain leather uppers and stylish details like a punched toe cap. But they’re designed with comfort in mind, and come equipped with features like a special moisture-wicking lining that keeps feet cool and dry in any weather conditions. The padded collar at the topline and special ankle flexion notches allow for easy movement during casual riding or working in the paddocks.

Ariat athleisure shoes are one of Ariat’s newest offerings. This line of casual shoes is designed for wearing at home or around town. It’s the perfect blend of casual comfort with the quality that Ariat is known for. Ariat’s athleisure line includes sneakers and slip-ons. Breathable fabric construction and EVA midsoles for optimal shock absorption and cushioning ensure your feet stay safe and comfortable during all sorts of leisure activities. Designs include both sporty, athletic trimlines and laid-back, casual sliders. Here are a few of our favorites.
