Here’s a fashion trend I didn’t see coming: suede half boots. As their name suggests, half boots are a cross between the ever popular knee-high boot and ankle boots (which have been making a comeback this season themselves). And everyone loves the look of suede (although it can be a pain to care for, particularly when traipsing around in winter conditions).
Will the suede half boot trend catch on? You be the judge.
Two of my favourite new half boots illustrate this article. The grey, slip-on suede boots above are from Loriblu. They have a moderate 3.54 inch (9 cm) covered stiletto heel. The boots are leather lined with a leather sole, and cost $714 from Forzieri.
Also new are these Michael by Michael Kors beige suede half boots, highlighted with a zip cuff feature. The heel is 10.5 cm high (4.2 inches) with a 1cm (0.4 inch) platform. These half boots are available from Profile Fashion for $377.81.
