This spring, Ariat introduces a new Bantamweight technology in a selection of new men’s western boot styles. Bantamweight is a lightweight outsole with exclusively designed wear zones. Unlike traditional Western polyurethane soles, the bantamweight outsole is long lasting, as well as oil- and slip-resistant. Flexible and lightweight, the Bantamweight outsole delivers superior cushioning. Styles that have the Bantamweight outsole include Ariat’s VentTEK Ultra, VentTEK Narrow Square Toe Ultra, and High Desert.
