Long known as a giant brand in the equestrian world, footwear firm Ariat has signalled its intention to break into the hunting and shooting market. Its first foray is the Catalyst Defiant boot, signalling Ariat’s big plans through its use of big-brand Gore-Tex lining, Thinsulate insulation and Vibram sole. Also built in is a counterweight to the heel for supreme stability, while the body of the boot is anatomically contoured. It won’t be cheap boot – retail prices will tip £300 – but it looks like a real contender in the stalking sector.
