It seems like every designer is headed west with fringe, denim and embroidery coming down every runway and flooding our Instagram feeds. And luckily for those who want to dip their toe in the trend, the #1 most iconic fixture of Western style also happens to be the most wearable: the boot.
Riding boots have been central to an equestrian lifestyle for centuries, and early designs dating back to the 16th century were influenced by both the Spanish vaqueros and the cavalry riders. Cowboys needed a durable boot they could wear while working, but didn’t want to sacrifice style, so details like geometric stitching and cutouts were used to add personality and flair to the hardy design.
While this trend may be blowing up right now, here at Two24 we know it never really went away. Rooted in Ariat’s rich history of exceptional craftsmanship and equestrian expertise, we’ve given the classic Western boot a few fresh twists for the upcoming season.
If it’s a sophisticated, fashion-forward boot you’re looking for, this is the perfect pick for you. With its luxe leather and stylish pointed toe, this versatile silhouette feels classic and refined. Stud detailing adds just the right amount of edge, and elevates everything from a tee and jeans to a fun, floral dress.

Understatedly cool, this boot is a perfect everyday style (especially with that easy-on side zipper for days when you’re running out the door.) Each option has its very own personality, whether you choose a gorgeous merlot-colored premium leather, a rich, cognac suede or a fierce cheetah print.
This subtle Western boot is an essential for any man – it’s simple and modern in design, yet built with a strong sense of craftsmanship. A side zip makes it an effortless everyday choice that looks refreshingly classic when paired with cuffed jeans, or professional and polished with a pair of slacks. Available in black or cognac bison leather, and olive green and teak suede.
