Spring Booties

I’ve never been a believer in the spring bootie. By the time warmth weather rolls around, especially up north, the last thing I want to do is keep my feet confined in the same type of shoes that I’ve been wearing for at least four months. Last week, though, I did a shoddy job packing for a trip to Atlanta, and everything changed. I had a minidress with no appropriate shoe companions, save for a pair of cap-toed Sigerson Morrison booties. I threw ‘em on and headed and, and much to my surprise, I got compliments on the combination everywhere. Obviously, now I’m hooked.

Because my legs were bare, I found that I didn’t really feel like I was wearing cold-weather shoes; they just felt like any other shoe. Not only that, but my boots happened to have a very low shaft, which is key for elongating the leg and avoiding that stumpy bare-legged boot look that can happen to those of us without particularly impressive gams. Cutouts, color and texture also play a big role in picking a bootie that’ll work for spring – check out our recommendations below.
