Boots have taken on new life in the past couple of years. Maybe they have gotten less practical, but so what? We love the options and the fact that boots are getting closer to letting us be as unique as shoes do (though there is still a way to go there.)
First came booties, ankle boots that look good with skirts and dresses. You get the cool look of a boot but the low cut makes your legs look great, no more cut off at the ankles which doesn’t work so well for those of us who aren’t 6 feet tall and 110 lbs. They are slightly more practical in the cold weather, and they a good option for your skinny jeans in winter!
Then came peep toe and cut out booties. Sure, they don’t make much sense, but since when to we consider that in fashion? Booties you can wear in the summer on their own and with tights in the winter. Actually, that’s pretty practical, isn’t it?
And sometimes you want something a little more classic in shape, your standard above the ankle boot, but that doesn’t mean you want boring! So, while it took us a bit longer than we had hoped, we now have a beautiful range of boots and booties that you can design yourself to stand out (pun intended) from the crowd. You can use all of the same luxurious materials offered for pumps and make your boots special by adding a cap toe in croc, a fun patent leather spectator design, classic suede trim and more!
Don’t settle for your standard boring boots any longer, create your own. Happy designing!
