The Brand I Can Always Count On For Great Boots

Picked up the boot of the season, hiking boots, from my go to boot brand (they have other footwear too). Also styling another favorite, western boots.

Boot season is in full affect now that cooler temps have rolled around! I’ll be honest, I wear boots all year round (you probably do too) but come winter, that’s almost always what you’ll see me in. With that said, each year typically means a new pair (or two of boots). One due to the constant wear they receive (and I totally beat up my shoes) and two because, who doesn’t want a new favorite each winter?!

My first stop every time I’m in the market for a new pair of boots, Ariat! They are quality, stylish, and incredibly comfortable – even after years of wear. My very first pair of cowboy (western) boots were Ariat and since then I haven’t looked back! My second pair purchased a couple of years ago are currently in my closet, waiting for a night at Coyote Joe’s. 

Recently, I was introduced to Ariat’s newer collection, Two24. This is a collection of luxurious footwear, inspired by equestrian tradition. Fun fact: the name Ariat comes from Secretariat, the world’s most loved thoroughbred race horse. How cute is that? Back to Two24, this is more their fashion collection and is full of stylish boots, oxfords, and mules. 

I have been wearing their footwear nonstop this fall and now into the winter season. Truly, my favorite shoes and just about the only ones I’m wearing. See the Jubilee mules styled for a weekend exploring a new town, laid-back weekend, and casual date night or weekend brunch. Most recently, I’ve been styling the Wilder boot in cognac – for Thanksgiving, paired with a sweater dress, with corduroys, and dressed up with a maxi skirt.

As mentioned above, their boots are so comfy while being incredibly stylish which is the reason I keep coming back, time and time again. Case and point, these Victoria hiking boots and Josefina Western boots.

Hiking boots are all the rave this season and this olive suede pair are just about the cutest! A chic rendition of a traditional alpine hiker boot. The hiking boots come with two different styles of laces (the cord version shown here and leather) so you can style them to better fit your personal style. They also come in a variety of colors – white, black, mustard, and cordovan. 

Another pair I’m totally eyeing right now, the Austen in cognac. I mean, how stinking cute? Also, can we talk about how cool these cow hair boots are? Not 100% sure I could rock them but am 100% sure some you could, so please get them and style for me!

    Hi! New follower from Raleigh here and so so glad I came across your page. I love your style! The Jubilee mules in cognac are AMAZING! 😍 My first pair of cowboy boots were also Ariat, and I just love how comfortable and well made they are. Hope you have an amazing weekend!

    • Thank you so much for following along – love to have you and look forward to connecting with you! Agreed, the Jubilee mules are amazing and honestly they are one of my favorite pairs of shoes. They go with just about everything and are great for all seasons (if you live in the south). Oh I love that your first pair of cowboy boots were also Ariat – that is so fun! Thank you gal – I hope you have an amazing one as well!

    I’d get the Wilder pair. Do their boots provide decent foot support?

    Posted 12.7.18 Reply
    • Good pick! Yes, they do! I wore the Wilder pair for a full day of exploring Raleigh as well as again in Chattanooga where we walked and walked and walked. My feet were completely fine at the end of the day and my back wasn’t feeling any pain.

    Such cute boots! I have been wearing Ariats since I was 5 and got on my first pony, but somehow I had no idea that the brand name came from Secretariat! Very cool fun fact that makes me like the brand even more.

    • With you lady! I had no idea! Love that you’ve been wearing them for such a long time.

    I like the Victoria in white best, even if it isn’t practical. P.S. I live 30 minutes from Secretariat’s resting place & have owned multiple pairs of Ariat boots, yet did not know that neat but of trivia.

    • Girl I am with you, I absolutely love the white! Learn something new every day, right? 🙂
