Sadie Robertson, known for her roles on A&E’s “Duck Dynasty” and “Dancing With the Stars,” is revealing her fashion side. Robertson, 18, has put her spin on a line of rain boots from Roma Boots, set to hit Nordstrom in November as well as online at Romaboots.com.
For Robertson, the collaboration was a natural one, according to Roma Boot founder Samuel Bistrian, since his company follows a buy-one-give-one-format, aligned with the charitable work done by Robertson and her family.
The teen is also collaborating on a line of prom dresses with designer Sherry Hill and has signed on as the first celebrity spokesmodel for the Wild Blue apparel brand. She manages to fit these extracurricular activities into her daily schedule that focuses on attending high school in Monroe, La.
When it comes to working with Roma, Robertson said, “The most fun about designing the collection is knowing these boots are going to help kids in need. It’s knowing it’s more than just about cute shoes.”
Among Robertson’s favorite looks are florals, but she also gravitates toward the color maroon and particularly likes a tall lace-up version in the solid color. She likes to pair the boots with a pair of overalls.
