I love my GUESS riding boots because they’re simple and don’t have a ton of buckles and details. They’re a rich dark brown but I have a soft spot for cognac colored boots so I’ve been catching myself browsing for cognac boots. Frye is the main brand I associate with riding boots but right now, the price tag is out of my range. Their Melissa Harness is beautiful and fits my simplistic, minimal aesthetic. However, Bandolino’s Calliope is giving Melissa a run for the money! The color is beautiful and honestly, I am digging the Calliope’s ankle details much more than Melissa’s details. Plus, you cannot really argue with the price tags. Which would you pick?
