The veteran journalist paired the monochromatic black jacket and matching pants she wore on the show with a chic pair of black platform Stella McCartney sneakers for her interview with the country music star on the amusement park grounds.

Robin completed the look with a printed top underneath. 

The Elyse shoes have an Oxford-style and come complete with a black faux leather top, a stacked platform, and black shoestrings. 

The kicks retail for $835 but we tracked down a few sizes for a fraction of the price on Luxury Closet. They’re 44% off, making the shoe a relative steal at $238. 

In case those sell out, we also found them at Farfetch for the regular price.

Robin not only thrilled fans with her throwback style, but she also delighted them when she hit Instagram to take her followers on a behind-the-scenes tour of the Good Morning America studios during a commercial break.
