When buying shoes, we want to make sure that they are not too trendy and that they will hold up for seasons to come.

We understand that basic styles come and go, for example, pointed-toe pumps (these should no longer be worn); however, the basic flat boot is here to stay.

We suggest the Steve Madden HAVILAND boot. You can wear it with your riding pants or your skinny jeans.

These are chic and utility (and a good buy).
