Ariat has launched a new dual-purpose boot that is designed to be worn as a fashion item as well as while riding.

The Women’s London Jod Boot is a classic short jodhpur boot made from premium full-grain leather, with a hardwearing duratread rubber sole.

The manufacturers claim that the boot “teams perfectly with skirts, shorts and dresses for a funky outdoor vibe, under jeans for a classic look, or with jodhpurs and breeches while riding”.

Ariat uses its patented ATS technology (advanced torque stability) to ensure comfort and support for the feet throughout the day. The boots also have a Drilex moisture-wicking lining, to prevent overheating.

The boots are styled traditionally, with twin elastic gore side panels and leather tags allowing them to be pulled on easily.

Available in Havana or black, sizes 3-8.5.

RRP: £129.99
