I've always wanted a good pair of cowboy boots, but the perfect pair has always eluded me. How to incorporate such an iconic style into my normally urban style? Enter Ariat.
This classic American footwear brand has roots deep in the equestrian culture. Like the sport, Ariat boots and apparel are driven by world-class design, innovation and technology. The brand was kind enough to gift me the Saratoga boot in Old West Black, and to my surprise, these fit seamlessly in my footwear rotation.
Western boots are fun because they’ve got that distinct stitch print and Old West flair that make them a statement unto themselves. I thought about pairing them with a silk sheath dress, romper, or maybe even some cutoff shorts and tights. But hi it’s freezing, and the most natural thing to come out of my closet were layers on layers of my tried & true Pacific Northwest street style. Throw a beanie on top and a hemp milk latte in my hand, and voila! Pretty much my every day outfit before your very eyes.
The Saratoga boot is amazingly comfy and sturdy; an easy choice for all-day wear. I went a half-size up and recommend you do the same! Take a look at all the different boot styles at
