Check out our top six summer booties to consider when upgrading your wardrobe. Different in style, texture and color, the selected booties are all fan favorites by way of the amazing style team at Nordstrom’s.
6. SARTO by Franco Sarto
SARTO by Franco Sarto has created a rugged, yet super chic western-style ankle bootie that can quickly heighten any look. The ‘Garfield’ western style bootie is a casual boot, complete with block-heel, distressed leather and a sleek buckle strap to kick things up a notch or two. We knew you’d agree!
Naturalizer’s ‘Kepler’ bootie offers to its wearer an amazing blend of comfort and style! The shoes’ dual leather straps and blocked heels allow for your phenomenal take on style to effortlessly continue on, all day long. The Neutalizer brand is known for their “comfort first” tag and style is only a half of a step behind it. We believe the Kepler bootie successfully embodies both.
This boot hails from the Kork-Ease® brand. The ‘Verdelet’ bootie takes a cutting-edge swing at western style by applying a stacked wedge and gore panels. Its laid-back, carefree tone shouldn’t go unnoticed. This boot is ready for all types of action, if you are. Pretty dope, right?!
3. Vince Camuto
Our number three hails from the fashion house. The ‘Katleen’ bootie from the Vince Camuto fashion house is a suede peep toe boot with a fresh style bonus. Camuto applied a chunky heel for a southwestern flair along with a rounded slit at the ankle, so you can show a little skin without showing too much. How cool is that?
Number two on our boot list comes from BCBGeneration. The ‘Carolena’ peep toe boot is sexy, fun and sophisticated, all at the same time. It’s modern tone works perfectly for both work and play, allowing you to go from your 9-5 to the comedy club with minimal fuss or worry.
1. Jeffrey Campbell
Our number one summer bootie goes to Jeffrey Campbell for the creation of his red, suede ‘Cors’ bootie. It’s stacked heel with cinched corset-style laces really stands out above the rest. This style boot gives off nothing short of FEVER and is a popular summer style contender this year.
Now that you’ve been given a running start on what’s hot, it’s time to get out there and grab your favorite boot to slay in before the summer ends!
