I’ll admit I wasn’t quick to jump on the riding boots trend when it first sprung back onto the fashion scene. Maybe it’s because some women were pairing them with what looked like riding pants (did she just come from the stables?). Luckily all of those images went to the wayside when I spotted these boots. The buckles and lightly distressed leather still evoke an equestrian flair, but their clean lines and sleek style give them a more modern look. Maybe this urban girl has a lil’ country in her after all.
