Do you have a favorite pair of boots? Boots that you could wear anywhere and everywhere, that always look good and are oh so comfortable? If you don't, there's a perfect pair out there with your name written all over them. If you do, what makes them so special? So perfect? Answer that question and you'll find the perfect pair no matter what the seasonal trend may be. You've got questions. I've got answers. Learn what to look for in a boot meant for walking vs. cat walking and everything in between.
These boots are made for walking
WEDGE SNEAKER BOOTIE
A sneaker bottom with snakeskin top is the ultimate mix of comfort and beauty. The 2" heel is perfect to give everything about you a lift while still being comfortable enough to walk in all day. The sneaker bottom suggests you wear this with sporty looks and generally limits this shoe to more relaxed occasions. Pull the clothing colors from the pattern, off-white, white, black, and warm taupes or plum will be wonderful with this shoe.
WAFFLE BOTTOM BOOT
This rugged looking shoe is great for cold weather comfort. The waffle bottom suggests plenty of traction for slick surfaces. A less refined suede texture is your cue to wear this shoe with equally textured fabrics such as denim, flannel, tweed, herringbone. Obviously a great shoe for daytime, active comfort, not so much for evening events.
Oh the moto boot! Cool, chic, heavy and great for walking comfort. Pull out the leather or denim jacket with this boot and you're good to go all day long. This boot packs a rebel without a cause vibe and is best worn in a more casual or creative setting, generally limited to daytime events.
These boots are made for cat walking
There is no doubt that this is a beautiful shoe. The snakeskin and slouchy heeled style is very much on trend. The heel and shaft height are great with midi length dresses, they actually slim the leg where the hem hits the calve instead of causing it to look wider. And yes, this is a common problem for midi lengths on bare legs. If you can wear a high narrow heel all day, feel free! For the rest of us, this beauty will be the statement piece for the next evening event.
LIGHT COLORED SUEDE BOOT
Another gorgeous boot. However, the light colored suede can show wear quickly and denim may dye it slightly blue. Spraying with a scotch guard protectant, the second you get home, will help clean the dirt off more quickly. The color and the heel height dictate that you wear this beauty selectively for clean, mostly seated events.
These boots are made for anything and everything
BLOCK HEEL BOOTIE
Simplicity is the key to versatility. The 2" block heel in this bootie provides all day comfort without sacrificing the lift that we all love. The smooth leather allows you to dress this boot up or down with understated elegance. A boot that works for so many occasions and is comfortable to wear all day long is worth the investment.
A wedge heel gives you pleasing height in addition to comfort and stability. All trademarks of a - wear for hours on end - type of shoe. The three different textures in this bootie allow you to pair it with a variety of textures from denim and suede to more refined fabrics with some sheen like satin or crepe. It's easy to dress this boot up or down and lovely for many occasions.
WEDGE OVER-THE-KNEE BOOT
Another lovely wedge style boot, this one has a 2-1/2" heel, my favorite height for all day wear. Great for a slimming leg with midi length dresses without sacrificing comfort. Wear with skirts or dresses of any length as well as fitted pants. For the most slimming ways to wear this and other styles of boots check out The How To Wear Boots for Longer Looking Legs Guide.
2-3" HEEL HEIGHT BOOT
The optimal heel and shaft height for day and evening. This boot also captures the animal skin trend without looking too trendy. And the versatile cinnamon rust color is great with most colors you pair it with. The heel height, design, shaft height and color all make this another gorgeous boot for a variety of occasions.
No matter your walk of life, there's a boot out there that's calling your name. Need help choosing the right one for you? I'm just a CLICK away!
