This Olsen-Approved Boot Trend Has 3000 Glowing Nordstrom Reviews

It’s boots season and with so many cool styles for the taking this season it can be hard to choose just one. But today we’re honing in on a boot style we spotted all over the F/W 2020 runways—riding boots—a trend that leans into the equestrian trend perfectly.

They also happen to be Mary-Kate Olsen–approved. (And you know when MK and Ashley wear something cool we’re quick to follow suit). Photographed at a horse show, Olsen wore traditional boots made for competition, but the equestrian trend can be worn well beyond the saddle. A whole host of brands from Coach to Tory Burch offer chic styles similar to Olsen’s—so there’s certainly no lack of options.

When sifting through Nordstrom's selection of boots, I noticed one pair that stood out from the rest with a staggering number of positive reviews: the Sam Edelman Penny Boots ($190). Nordstrom reviewers are obsessed with the equestrian-style riding boots, citing their comfort, fit, and style as main selling points, along with their under-$200 price point. So keep scrolling to see how Olsen wears riding boots, and shop the equestrian trend for yourself.
