Ariat is excited to debut the new Fall 14 collection with new designs! This season, we have broken away from tradition with material collaborations and combined influences from both Western and English disciplines, while staying true to its mantra of delivering premium footwear with advanced comfort technologies.
The Fall 2014 Fashion Collection is built for the modern equestrian, drawing inspiration from vintage equine cultures. Fusing together English and Western design elements, the contemporary line of craft footwear speaks to our equestrian heritage. This season, the Fashion Collection blends classic details and hardware with distressed leathers and artisan elements, resulting in three sub-collections: Santa Fe, a line that infuses the work of Southwestern artisans with modern design and handmade detail; East Meets West, an offering that mixes the classic lines and polished look of English riding boots with Western’s rugged elements; and Countryside, a handcrafted collection that pays homage to the English countryside.
An update to a classic Chelsea boot silhouette, the Versant is influenced by the traditional etchings found on Southwestern pottery. Laser cut detailing and a distressed leather construction lend to an artisan look and feel. The Versant is offered in two color ways, a traditional black, Ink, and a deep mahogany, Café.
The Getaway, introduced into Ariat’s comfortable casuals sub-collection Rugged West, features a distressed leather and suede blend upper. The ankle-high boot features a full front zipper for ease of entry. Rawhide lace accents, a platform sole and contrast stitching provide subtle touches of modern style. The boot is equipped with a layered EVA midsole and a Duratread™ outsole for increased comfort and durability.
