Booties have quickly become a staple in every wardrobe, especially for Fall. With their versatility and chic, tough vibe – not to mention the possibility of running around all day in them – how could they not be? So the question is not whether to get a pair, but whether to splurge or steal for the latest styles. Or better yet, splurge on one and steal another? Let the shoe shopping begin!
In the mood for a little snakeskin? Jimmy Choo presents the Brianna Python boots with lux python skin for the ultimate splurge. The natural shade easily matches with denim or colored skinnies. Steal the look with Sam Edelman’s Petty Roccia snake-embossed leather booties with stacked heel.
Who knew glittered booties could be so much fun? Miu Miu demonstrates with their glittered jewel-heel boot. The flat ankle boot has gore insets for a secure fit and pave crystals embedded in the half-inch heel. Satisfy the glitz and glam craving on a budget with Matt Bernson’s Jardin glitter boot.
