When asked for opinions on the new sandal bootie about a year ago, most of the responses were not in favour of the style. It was just me and a handful of others who thought that the bootie had potential. Inspired by the stylish women of Tel Aviv, I went ahead and bought a pair and they featured in my response to the Tel Aviv forum challenge.

Sandal booties are back again this season, though still as a fringe trend. They were starting to surface in the retail stores of Milan a few weeks ago alongside the multitudes of high and flat cage heels.

If you have long Summers and are in the mood for a more edgy sandal with a difference, I still vote yay on sandal booties. Have you had a change of heart? Has the style grown on you?
