Ariat Volant Vented Tall Back Zip Boots

The fall/winter season is still a long ways away but the future is NOW with this cutting edge, ultra modern take on the riding boot!

Scenes from futuristic movies instantly started playing in my mind as soon as I laid eyes on these Ariat Volant Vented Tall Back Zip Boots:

I can see a kick-ass female sci-fi character like Aeon Flux rockin’ the hell out of these boots.

I’ve never been a big fan of clunky, sneaker-like soles on leather boots but Ariat has changed my mind with this style. They’ve designed the thick sole in such a way that it’s sleek, functional and cohesive with the rest of the boot that you almost forget that these boots ARE performance riding boots.

That’s right, Ariat is a brand that’s dedicated to making the best performance equestrian footwear for athletes, professionals, novices and enthusiasts alike. These Volant boots aren’t just designed to look futuristic; they’re real and actual technologically forward footwear!

The breathable mesh panels stretch for a comfortable, ergonomic fit while the durable Tec-Tuff heel counter is ready to face any riding test you subject it to. Ariat has also created what they call the “Cobalt Quantum technology” which is one of their innovations that enhance a riding boot’s support, control, and stability.

It’s also what makes their shoes the best go-to shoes even for those relaxed, take it easy days.

With all these features — and the fact that it’s designed specifically for performance riding — these boots expectedly don’t come cheap. The Ariat Volant Vented Tall Back Zip Boots retail for $500.00 and are available at Zappos.
