Ariat, founded in 1993, takes its name from the inspiring 1973 Triple Crown winner, Secretariat. Like the horse that inspired it, the brand is a world-class performer. It brings technological innovation, top-grade materials, and craftsmanship to every product it makes. The company partners with leading biomechanical research and testing groups to ensure product comfort, performance, and durability in real-world conditions, in addition to performing rigorous field tests. Many of Ariat’s boots go through 150 distinct steps and processes during manufacturing to ensure a proper fit, unrivaled durability, and peerless performance. Likewise, the brand's apparel designers imagine and reimagine every component--fabric, fit, fashion, function--to produce clothing that just feels right. The company's denim is finished by “denim artists” to give every pair a unique appearance. Ariat’s unflagging dedication to top-grade materials, ingenuity, and craftsmanship has helped make it a leading brand for Equestrian, Work, and Outdoor footwear and apparel. We at Outdoor Equipped are very pleased to offer a wide selection of Ariat products. We're very partial to this brand: the quality of their products is a testament to the inspiration of the extraordinary people who make them.
