The Ultimate Guide to the Ariat V Sport Boot

Ariat is a brand synonymous with quality, comfort, and durability. For this reason, Ariat has been trusted by equestrians for many years–the staff at The FarmHouse included! The Ariat V Sport Tall Boot is one of our favorite Ariat English riding boots and riding boots in general. In this post, we’ll share what makes the V Sport boot so incredible. 

What is the Ariat V Sport Boot?

The Ariat V Sport Tall Boot is a staff favorite and one of our best-selling English riding boots. The V-Sport was crafted for hardworking equestrian athletes. Handcrafted with high-quality leather and sturdy ATS® technology, these boots are comfortable and durable enough to wear every day. Due to its breathable upper, these boots can be worn comfortably in all seasons for any task or discipline.

Why we love the Ariat V Sport boot

Here are some of the best features of the Ariat V Sport boot that make it an excellent English riding boot.

Leather features

The supple, full-grain leather upper panel of the V Sport boot looks and feels incredible and has impressive durability to match. Oiled leather inner-calf panels and full leather lining complete the boot, creating a comfortable fit that’s still highly breathable.

ATS® technology

Ariat’s Advanced Torque Stability (ATS®) technology provides superior stability without sacrificing comfort. This exclusive technology supports your foot, promoting good posture and reducing fatigue so you can ride or work in comfort throughout the day.

Contoured fit

The V Sport is designed to have a contoured fit through the ankle, which provides a great fit right out of the box. It gives riders extra security and helps prevent rubbing and chafing, especially while breaking in a new pair.

Spanish cut topline

The classic high Spanish cut of this boot is incredibly stylish, adding sophistication to your event wardrobe. But it’s not too flashy and still a great choice to wear around the barn.

Duratread™ outsole

Ariat is known for making high-quality riding gear, and these boots are no exception. The Duratread™ outsole provides incredible stability both on the ground and no-slip security in the stirrup. 

Easy to break in

The most common praise we wear about the Ariat V Sport boot is that they’re extremely easy to break in. These boots are comfortable right out of the box, feeling more like a well-loved pair of boots than stiff and brand new.
