Can I just say, I am a ginormous fan of boots. Booties, ankle boots, knee highs, thigh highs, I don’t care, I am a fan all the way around. So you’ve got a little over a week left to buy gifts for Christmas, right? Whether you’re looking for a gift for someone else or a little something for yourself, here are 5 boots that I think are most sincerely awesome.
UGG Australia Classic Cardy Boot
I’m not normally a huge fan of UGG boots, but even I have to admit that these are gorgeous. They look so warm and comfortable! Fully knitted, they have three buttons up the side, as you can see. The foot bed is shearling and they have a rubber sole, which is ideal for icy whether. Best part? You can cuff them or pull them up and wear them tall. ShopBop.com has them for only $140, which is a seriously killer deal.
Dolce Vita Hamilton Boot
If you watch WhoWhatWear, you may have noticed Jessica Szohr wearing these gorgeous boots. They garnered a lot of attention and sent shoe fans on a frantic internet search. These boots are really unique; that’s what first caught my eye. From the heel to the multiple straps, they are just ingenious. The heel is wooden, the leather is sumptuous, and they even have an open toe. Available at TheHipChick.com for $137.50, you can’t get any better than that!
Paris Hilton Courtney Bootie
Say what you will about Paris Hilton, but the girl knows shoes. What I love best about her shoe line is the fact that so many of the soles are pink, in imitation of Christian Louboutin’s racy red soles. Her Courtney booties are no exception, but that’s only one of the reasons I love them so. From the crisscrossing straps to the buckle detailing, these boots with their 4 inch heels are dead gorgeous. I’m a fan of the pewter version; I love the black straps against it. Heel.com has them for only $94.99!
Carlos Santana Admit Boot
Hmmm, I’m seeing a crisscross trend here, are you? Who knew Carlos Santana could create boots as hot as his guitar licks? I love the peekaboo quality here, and the sort of bondage feeling you get with the way the straps cross over them. The heel is a stiletto, but a fairly tame 4 inch one, and there is a back zipper so you can easily slip in and out of these. They go for $129.99 at Heels.com!
BCBGeneration Women’s Melo Faux Shearling Ankle Boot
Last but not least, we turn to BCBG(eneration). One of the reasons I like this boot so much is because the way the cuff turns down makes it look like your ankles are wearing little coats. What? I never said I was normal, did I? Anyhow, I love the eyes on these, not to mention the rivet detailing along the edge. Too cute! That lethal 4 and ½ inch heel is to die for as well. The price ranges between $119.16 and $148.95 at Endless.com.
So there you have it, five stylish boots that would be great for Christmas, but are most definitely fashionable and functional during the winter season!
