North Platte, NE
I've been wearing cowboy boots for over 55 years and Ariats for the last 10. I have bad arch's in my feet and it got where i almost would be crippled after wearing other brands all day. Bought my first pair at a cattle show in Iowa. My feet have never felt better. Some of the cushion insoles have not held up as well as others, but i buy cushion insole supports that my foot doctor sells, and replace the ones that come in Ariat when that happens. I'm hard on soles and love the fact i can't wear out the rubber soles on the Ariat boots. Just replaced my last pair after 5 years of constant wearing, and i mean all day evey day. The side of the boot finally give out. The sole was still like new. My only gripe is i hate square toes, and it's hard finding a stylish boot with a round toe anymore. Thankfully, Ariat still makes a few pairs to chose from.
