“The Vortex boots were very easy to break in, the comfort and fit feel as good as any custom boot. Since I spend so much time riding and teaching, I found that the boots were as comfortable riding as they were walking around.”- Kelli Cruciotti 

“Whether I’m running from ring to ring or jumping from horse to horse, my Ariat Vortex Boots are by my side. With their immediate break-in, amazing fit, and superb grip, they keep me stylish and comfortable from sunrise to sunset. “- Lexi Shaw 

The Vortex Difference

Traction ZonesVortex Sneak Peek2
The sole of the Vortex boot features Traction Zones for grip where you need it most. The innovative design is the result of R&D testing where riders were fitted with pressure sensors. Results revealed that varying levels of traction are necessary for optimal grip in and out of the stirrup.

Shock Shield™
Ariat put the new Vortex riding boot to the test. Literally. In independent testing, innovative Shock Shield™ technology was shown to provide 30% more shock absorption in the heel, while the TPE midsole was 33% more shock absorbent in the forefoot. Exceptional cushioning means reduced joint stress, which helps to prevent injury.

One of Ariat’s premium technologies, NITRO™ delivers a lightweight combination of flexibility and engineered support that cushions and stabilizes the foot for flawless performance.ariat vortex
