Ariat Boot Company exclusive ATS technology supports and cushions as you move, promoting good posture and reducing fatigue. At the core of ATS technology is the Ariat ATS composite shank. This patented shank design reduces skeletal and muscular fatigue and injury. Mid-foot support reduces metatarsal stress. The forked shank design allows natural forefoot flex. The removable ATS footbed has a low-friction surface to protect from heat build-up and blistering. Shock-absorbing gel forefoot cushion reduces skeletal impact stress on knees, hips, and lower back. Cupped footbed chassis offers torsional stability. Ariat boots are always comfortable and well made - but this Ariat Heritage boot is hands down one of the prettiest you'll find! The Ariat Heritage bucklace boot features a brown rebel full grain leather foot under a stitched, scalloped 12" matching leather shaft. Single stitch welt. Pointed toe profile and 1 3/4" cowgirl heel.
