Performance and elegance meet at the intersection of quality and tradition with Ariat’s newest, and quite possibly most anticipated, offering to the tall boot market; the Divino™. Ready yourself Horse & Style community, as your quest for the ideal RTS (ready-to-show) tall riding boot stops here and the result, we have found, is simply divine.
Constructed of sumptuous premium Italian calf leathers - the first Italian-made boot from the Ariat tall riding family - classical design and unparalleled fit was paramount in the creation of this boot. Full length elasticized panels offer exquisite fit and comfort, while an oiled leather inner calf adds durability and enhanced grip. A Spanish topline with an elegant cuff design and engraved logo hardware finish off the look of the sophisticated Divino™.
“The new Ariat Divino’s are the perfect blend of luxury style and performance,” exclaims professional Hope Glynn. “The incredibly soft leather made it so the boots had virtually no break in time and I was able to wear them all day long straight out of the box,” she continues.
But like many Ariat products, the quality and craftsmanship does not apply only to the exterior. Hidden comfort features include elastic laces to reduce instep pressure, behind-the-knee tendon curve and Ariat’s ATS® Luxe technology: a blend of performance and luxury, where the rich leathers and fine detailing are combined with comfort, stability and breathability.
“How could Ariat made a beautiful riding boot that feels as comfortable as a slipper and fit like your favorite broken in pair straight out of the box? I am at a horse show and just put them on for the first time to school a horse and they fit like they were made just for me,” says professional Jen Bauersachs.
