Booties and shooties can be worn with just about any outfit these days, and year round too. The snug fit around the ankle is the aspect of these styles that I like most. 

Calvin Klein Nadina: If you’re looking for a dressy shootie with a refined elegant edge and can sport a three and a half inch heel, try this wedge. Although it’s far too high for me, I found the fit quite comfortable. It would actually make a good “sitting shootie”. It comes in six colour variations and runs true to size. Read the rave reviews. 

Calvin Klein Jenny: A simple and comfortable metallic shootie with a ladylike look is hard to find. This style fits the bill and is great for career wear. The description states that the heel height is three and half inches, yet it’s under three inches in my book. Size up half a size. 

Studio Pollini Lace-up: Essentially a heeled oxford which I have not seen in person, but it’s a fun shoe with a stable heel. Loving the zebra pint. 

Zodiac USA Italia: Our forum members are raving about this bootie because it is cushioning, affordable, fits like a glove, and is pretty versatile in black patent. More rugged and casual options are available in shades of brown. The walkable two and half inch heel is another selling point. 

I’m thrilled to see comfy bootie and shootie options with lower heels and a more refined and dressier integrity this season. We needed a wider assortment because retail has been oversupplying the market with high heels and rugged, chunky looks for years. Style diversity is best.
