I’ve been embarrassingly picky while shopping for something so simple: black booties. I’m not a real “shoe girl” because I focus more on statement clothes, so I always gravitate towards simpler shoe styles. My requirements? First, I wanted a flat pair, possibly Chelsea-style, with an edgier vibe that would look sexy with cuffed black denim or a flowy mini dress. I need my boots to work with me: be comfortable without sacrificing sexiness or versatility. They work with every look that I can create from my wardrobe, while being comfortable because Im standing on my feet all day and need a break from heeled shoes.
Second, I want a heeled pair that is manageable to walk and stand in for 7+ hours. Short shaft height, almond toe (pointy can look hooker-ish and round can be too casual), thick heel, and minimal details. While most girls are drawn to snake print, stiletto heels, or bold buckles, I prefer to keep it simple.
