Under $100: Born Birdie Bootie
Wednesday, November 30, 2011 • Permalink •
When the worst of the winter cold sets in, it's easy to fall into the habit of wearing utilitarian boots everyday. These interesting booties will let you break away from the ordinary boot, but without losing the full coverage and strong construction the winter weather demands.
The Born Birdie Bootie is made from a full leather upper with durable rubber outsole. The inside is nicely padded, which is a hallmark of the ultra comfortable Born brand. The 3.25" heel has a steel shank construction to add stability. The color -- a nice deep brown with a slight vintage look -- is more fun than a flat brown and will pair nicely with nubby wool sweaters. I'd also try out these cute boots with skirts and tights. You'll have to be a little careful because they could come off a little dowdy with the wrong skirt, but with an otherwise modern outfit they will look funky and downtown.
