We love these Ariat Women's Ascent Tall Boots for the fierce new design which features a shock absorbing midsole & a Duratread™ outsole with traction zones attuned specifically for riders. Ride fierce & bold, with the most comfortable FLX Foam™ Midsoles. When the competition gets hot, you'll be glad you got Ariat!
Expertly crafted from high-tech synthetic fabric and decked out in multiple high-performance features, this is what top of the line looks and feels like. Highlights include a breathable, compressive fit that’s comfortable even in hot weather; inner leg panel crafted from high-grip material; and exceptional flexibility and release over the instep. Ascent is made for training or show and this premium riding boot can be folded for the utmost ease of portability. Get ready for the easiest, all-day ride you’ve ever had.
These boots are perfect for hot summers. Right out of the box they are flexible with stretch air panels and a super cushy footbed. They are so attractive and the tall really is a tall size unlike so many off the rack boots. Like the other reviews I suggest these for everyone, but especially older riders with any kind of foot or knee pain. You can ride and walk in these all day, no breaking in period. Also I really like the velcro closures over the zipper rather than the snaps. These close over easily and I have two pairs of boots with snaps and they are a pain to deal with. I am trying to find a way to cut them off! I do think they run a bit small in the calf. I am usually a "slim" but in this boot took a regular.
At 67, I have all sorts of foot issues and these have saved me! I am getting a second pair since even my most comfortable dress boots (Ariat Volentes) can only get me through the dressage phase of an event before they hurt. The Ascents I can wear all day!
