black-and-brown-riding-boots.jpgI've been after a pair of riding boots exactly like these ones for ages, having spotted them out on the street and looking amazing on various well-dressed legs - so I was more than happy to hunt them down to the easy destination of Topshop.

These boots, with their 'it shouldn't work!' combination of black and brown bring a real rustic feel to the urban environment, with the ruddy brown reminding us of a generous splash of mud.

The boots are 100% leather, with a lovely slight crinkle on the surface. I can't say whether they'd be suitable for actual riding purposes, but would certainly like to wear them over my jeans!
