Half Boots

Trend alert: half boots

Half Boots

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.


Naughty shoes!

One 6 inch stiletto sandal outsells all others. This is it.


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.

Michael Kors half bootsAlso 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.
