Ariat exclusive ATS technology supports and cushions as you move, promoting good posture and reducing fatigue. Comfort technology is one of the many things we love about Women’s Ariat Boots! 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 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. The Ariat Willow cowgirl boots feature a smooth leather foot under a matching and fancy stitched 9" leather shaft. Supple leather lining. Piping accents along shaft. 1.75" dress heel. Single stitched welt. Easy-on pull straps and modern snip toe profile. Imported.
