I love pointy toe footwear but I’m very particular about the shape and length of the point. If it’s too pointy, the visual effect looks overly severe. If it’s too long, your foot looks disproportionally long. And if a point is too short and round, it loses its elegance. I’m also not fond of pointy toe shoes that are chunky and/or platformed. Of course, I’m merely describing my own aesthetic preference, and there is no right or wrong pointy toe shape.
The Nine West Junia bootie is a simple dressy ankle boot with a three inch heel and sleek ankle fit. Its pointy toe shape isn’t too long, stubby or severe. I found it quite comfortable, but the heel is above my comfortable height. It runs small so size up at least half or a full size. Apart from black, taupe and animal print, it’s also available in chocolate brown, which is an elusive shoe colour these days. I would not recommend this bootie for wider feet.
Wear it with bootcut trousers, tapered trousers and jeans, cropped pants, boyfriend jeans, baggy shorts, skirts and dresses. Although tall boots are making a fashionable comeback, it seems the bootie trend is unstoppable.
