“Catalyst VX is a revolution in engineering and design. Catalyst VX is the ultimate boot for Western athletes, with innovative performance features on the outside and Ariat’s most advanced technology—Cobalt VX—on the inside. Offered in a narrow and wide square toe, every Catalyst VX boot is fully equipped for the competitive rider.”—Ariat
Ariat style 10014045 is part of their Catalyst VX collection. This boot is engineered to perform and breaks all the rules that come with the traditional styled cowboy boot. The new Catalyst VX offers a premium ride with new Cobalt VX technology and breakthrough performance upgrades that really make the boot stand out. But what makes up the Cobalt VX technology? Cobalt VX consists of several features that keep your feet cool, comfortable, and protected. The Temperature-managing X-Static layer provides superior comfort and odor protection. The Metatarsal Strike Pad, or the gel pad that runs across the ball of the foot, protects the small bones and nerves in your feet. A VX Cradle insole supports your arch and heel, which provides you with greater stability. Anatomically designed Midfoot Support Zone provides superior shock absorption and comfort. The Honeycomb shank stabilizes the foot and provides superior balance. Non-marking Duratread outsole provides maximum wear resistance, while the tread pattern offers excellent footing on the ground and in the stirrup.
The Thunder Brown foot features Protective ExGuards in key wear zones that extends the life of the boot. So this means you don’t have to worry about marking-up the toes and the leather around the ball and instep of the foot will last longer. Four Lime Green Stirrup Guard strips on the outside of each boot reduce wear from the stirrup, which makes them the ultimate riding boot. The under-slung heel increases staying power in the stirrup. Do you wear spurs when you ride? If you do, Ariat made these boots to accommodate you. An In-molded Spur Grip not only extends the life of the boot, but eliminates spur movement as well. Patented U-Turn technology provides easy boot entry and exit by moving outwards when your foot makes the turn. The padded 13” tops feature a padded shaft collar for added protection.
