The proof of this hiking boot comes from the customer who has put it to the test. We will let him explain it...
"I was really skeptical when I learned that Ariat makes a hiking boot, but I researched them anyway. I have flat feet and have endured 8 months of plantar fasciitis, so I have to have some serious stability. The ATS stability feature caught my attention and the reviews were intriguing. When a friend gave me a discount coupon, I decided to invest in the hype. My first hike was a 10 miler with about a 2500' elevation gain that had destroyed a pair of name brand hiking shoes last year. Even just out of the box I forgot I was wearing them. At 4 miles, I thought to myself, "This is like hiking in my house slippers." At the end of the hike I had no blisters and my feet felt great. I was absolutely the happiest I have ever been with a pair of hiking boots. After 2 more fairly demanding hikes on rough trails, steep up and steep down, I am sold on Ariat. If I had known Ariat boots were this comfortable I would still be harassing livestock. Fit: true to size ( I did wear socks and liners) Pro: Comfort: 10 out of 10...Amazing Stability: 10/10 ..Impressive Traction: 9.5 Great up and down on fairly steep slopes. Con: Honestly? The gortex and all-leather were a bit warm for my Utah dry summer hikes. Still no blisters. Would I buy again? Absolutely!!!"
