I definitely wouldn't spend $500 on riding boots, but I do think they are something to splurge on because if you take care of them they last a long time! However, these AE boots look like a great steal!xx Emily @ laughliveandshop.blogspot.com
definitely a good price!!xo dVbhttp://thegermanprep.blogspot.de/
I got my riding boots from Rack Room this past year right after Christmas for about $70! They have held up well and if you are always on your feet or at school in my case, you wouldn't want something major to mess up your $500 pair of shoes.
Pretty good price for a good looking pair! I do think riding boots are worth investing in though!
