Is this the boot?

The over-the-knee boot is back with a vengeance.  Although mine are from 2010, they are perfection and I have no need for a new pair. But I don’t own any booties. I had my eye on the low, chunky-heeled version so popular the last few seasons, but did not get a pair.

Probably the chicest boots for fall 13 are these wedges by Isabel Marant. Will I add them to my wardrobe? Not sure– I can only imagine the looks I’d get doing the school run. With black skinnies and a big sweater, they are kind of amazing.

  • I’m intrigued by the wedge bootie and wedge sneaker look. Seems like a comfortable way to give us women of the shorter variety a little boost in height without having to wear actual heels and losing the casual look we are after. I’m going to seriously entertain this look for fall. These look chic and subtle enough to work.

  • Pretty amazing, especially the way you are going to wear them. Definitely on my list for fall.

  • I love these. I think they would be a good purchase if you don’t mind running around in a higher heel height (3.5″). I would also wear them out on a casual evening. They are a nice change from the Dicker and Rag and Bone booties everyone is wearing right now.

  • Go for it! I fell in love with them the moment I saw them.

  • Preston, aren’t you glad you didn’t cut down your beautiful OTK boots last winter? Love these Marant boots. A tad too high for me for everyday at the office but would be a great night time boot!

  • Robbi, I am so glad I didn’t cut my boots! Thanks for remembering.

  • Those boots are hot! I absolutely love them.

  • If you get looks during the school run, those women don’t know fashion! I wear Marant, Rossi and whatever else I like because I dress for me and when I love something, I just want to wear it all the time.
