Around the PurseBlog/TalkShoes offices, we are ENORMOUS fans of the Chloe Susan Booties. Our marketing director Hilary recently bought a pair of her very own while in Paris, and every time she wears them, I drool and wonder if I would be able to steal them without arousing suspicion. (Megs, Hilary and I all wear the same size shoe, which is convenient.) She’d know exactly where to look for her missing shoes, of course, so I have yet to act on my klepto impulses.
The design has been so popular that the introduction of more variations for this season was practically a foregone conclusion, and now they’re starting to show up at retailers. The first? This tan python version. What say you?
Personally, I’ll stick with the black leather version; the detailing of the studs is the real draw for me on this shoe, and the delicate little gold nubs show up much better against a dark, flat background. The tan python is nice, but it would work better in a version of the bootie without the studded detail, which would be a beautiful shoe in its own right. Buy through Net-a-Porter for $1750.
