A new long riding boot has been launched by Ariat for the autumn.

The “Volant” boot comes in two styles — front zip and back zip.

“Ariat Volant boots incorporate the exclusive Ariat cobalt quantum technology, which provides the rider with unrivalled comfort, durability and foot stability, while still offering a stylish appearance and high quality construction,” said a spokesman for the company.

They are made from European calf leather with stretch mesh for a breathable, supple and contoured fit. The oiled leather inner panel gives additional grip to enhance lower leg security and, for riders spending hours in the saddle, the anatomical design aids a flexible, stable foot position.

“For ultimate durability the Ariat Volant boots discretely hide the midsole construction leaving it less exposed to the elements, resulting in an even longer lasting outsole, which enhances appearance and comfort,” added the spokesman.

The Ariat Volant front zip boot incorporates a contrasting zipper down the front to prevent interference with saddle contact and features red detailing. The boots cost £350.

The Ariat Volant back zip boot is designed in a more subtle fashion and is suitable for competition wear. The boots cost £385.
