no, not booty, but bootie. as in the things on your feet. i’m sure i’ll get some awesome spam comments on this one…
i’ve been getting so many questions about some boots i posted recently on instagram, so i wanted to share the brands, links and a teeny review for you.
i’m super opinionated about
everything booties, so it took me a long time to make my final decisions on these.

i bought these all from zappos. i love using zappos. they probably hate me. i bet i have ordered 40 pairs of boots from them, only keeping a few! thankfully, they have free shipping both ways so i can return easily. beyond my pickiness, i also have a really hard time finding shoes that fit me. i have big feet and narrow ankles and calves. trying to find a good fit that doesn’t look baggy is tricky. thats why ordering several pairs at a time is better than going to a shoe store. i can try them on in the comfort of my home, but also try them with different outfits to see if they will really work right for me.
so do you want to know which pair i kept? first of all, these are the 4 i narrowed down to from the original 6 pairs. i was looking for shorter boots and the first 2 were a tiny bit too high. even though they weren’t what i was looking for, i immediately decided to keep the wedge booties because LOOK AT THEM! i first saw them on emily, and thought i’d give them a try. they are the perfect brown with a hint of grey, and are actually really comfortable for wedges. but my goal was to find short ankle length booties, so i now had 3 boots to choose from. the softwalk rocklin pair were like pillows – so soft and comfy. but they were too light for me and not quite fitted enough for my narrow feet. i loved the kork-ease michelle pair, but they were the exact color as the pair of kork-ease wedges i decided to keep. seemed a little redundant. so that left the steve madden pair and i love them! they are so comfortable that i didn’t even think about them on my feet all day! the color is the same pair as my favorite tall boots and go with everything. i do wish they were a little shorter, but they are the best i could find.
now i’m thinking i’d love a super short pair of black booties. i may give the kork-ease a try in black, or do a search for more…
have you found the “perfect” pair of booties? please share!
