Something tells us that 2998 reviewers can't be wrong. 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 ($149). Nordstrom reviewers are obsessed with the equestrian-style riding boots, citing their comfort, fit, and style as main selling points. Of course, the reasonable under-$150 price point doesn't hurt, either.
Riding boots also happen to be a Mary-Kate Olsen–approved trend. Photographed at a horse show last week, Olsen wore traditional boots made for competition, but the equestrian trend can be worn well beyond the saddle. Tory Burch, Valentino, and Calvin Klein are just some of the brands designing chic riding boots similar to Olsen's, so you definitely can't complain about a lack of options. Scroll down to see how Olsen wears riding boots, and shop the equestrian trend for yourself.
