Suede booties with a stacked heel
They've been in style for a while but I see them even more this year. Here is a pair of APC booties from last year, but Isabel Marant also makes them, and I saw a cheaper model at Mango the other day.

Any pictures of people wearing them would be nice!



What do you say?

Sam Edleman has a stylish, basic and relatively inexpensive pair out now that is kind of a take off on the Chelsea boot trend as well. I ordered a pair from shopbop in moss green. Very cute.

I bought these babies yesterday!
DV by Dolce Vita 'Jamison' boot

nordstrom
They're a lot cheaper at nordstrom than zappos. I think I want them in tan/beige as well but I will probably wait until they go on sale.


I really want those sam edelman posted earlier but they're out of my budget.

These Mango are such a low quality. The zipper is totally shi*ty. It can barely open and I tried in 3 stores just to make sure! haha but they look nice!

I own black suede booties myself. I absolutely love them. I might post a picture later...

Strangely enough, I dislike the Marant ones. Everyone says they're so french and chic. I actually think they look like trashy cowboy boots. I love booties... but not with the cowboy touch!

These are EVERYWHERE! I have a pair, brown and simple and they're so comfortable and go with just about anything. The only problem is the suede part, it won't put up well once the rain and snow start coming.

^Funny what you said about the Marants, because I'm the complete opposite. I usually think booties like these can look pretty trashy but the Marant ones are so lovely and versatile.

if it's real quality suede (not split leather) and if you use appropriate waterproofing they should sustain multiple falls/winters. In fact suede is the perfect bad weather material.
But you have to stick to the golden rule: if they are wet let them dry completely (not via "forced" heating, because this can damage the leather).
