Nina Kaplan has been an Ariat fan since she was a teenager. “I’m a boot girl,” says the occupational therapist who works with children. What draws her to the brand time and time again is the sturdy sole. “I can spend all day in them, and my feet don’t hurt.”
Kaplan has recently started marrying her work with her passion – horseback riding, with occupational therapy to improve coordination, balance and strength through hippotherapy. “It’s really a magical thing,” she says.
Her shoe of choice is the Parker, which she wears with jeans for both work and play.
