Yesterday Mary-Kate Olsen was spotted in her signature languid layers in New York City. The cofounder of The Row walked out—no, floated out—on the sidewalk wearing a long black impeccably tailored coat that artfully skimmed her ankles. A burnt orange knit cardigan, which was coolly tucked into a pair of silk black harem pants, was visible underneath the outerwear. Olsen opted for a rounded mahogany croc-embossed bag by The Row and a mammoth Keep cup filled with water. She finished the look with a black scarf and a layer of necklaces–including one crafted from wooden beads and a hulking gold medallion–all of which harkened back to her boho-chic days in the 2000s.

While the look was certainly a bohemian piece of high-priced art, Olsen balanced it out with laid-back footwear: the Adidas Sambarose. The now defunct shoe resembles the classic Adidas Sambas with the plain upper and tri-stripe on the side but has a thicker, platform sole. The shoes are under $100 dollars, but they can be found only via third-party retailers. For a similar fix, the classic Adidas Sambas go for around $70–an easy route to getting MK’s luxe look.

This isn’t Olsen’s first time pairing an affordable shoe with an outfit that probably fetches quadruple digits. The twin is a master of high-low, and typically focuses on an easy breezy shoe. In the past, Mary-Kate has worn humble slip-on Vans, plain flip-flops, and Birkenstock sandals—as has her sister Ashley. What better way to stylishly bring an outfit down to earth?
