If you ever need a pair of classic, no frills riding boots at a great price (and who doesn’t?), you should check out the Sam Edelman Penny riding boots.
A lot of boot designers struggle with the right ratio of leather to hardware; despite all the on-trend crazy buckled-up versions out there, the most classic, elegant riding boot is still one with great leather, color/texture, and just a touch of gold hardware. Sam Edelman’s Penny boot is just that.
From the strap and small gold button detailing at the top, the slightly darker toe, to the short wooden stacked heel, this boot is the quintessential riding boot.
If you like this boot, you’re in luck. They’re on sale in both black and whiskey for $149 at Nordstrom, down from $190. 571 4.4-star reviews on Nordstrom should tell you something about how great these boots are, so don’t hesitate to snag them on sale! Regular boot is 15″ circumference, get them here or wide calf (16″ circumference) here.
