Whether you call them booties, ankle boots, or short boots, they’re one of the most versatile and hard-working footwear styles for cooler months. I’ll wear mine from late autumn until early summer, and almost always include a weatherproof pair in my travel wardrobes.
During our recent visit to Italy, Paris, and London, I was paying close attention to footwear styles and taking notes. Combat and lug-sole booties are quite popular with all ages. But I also noticed a good showing of sleek and classic styles with with a low to medium heel.
Women’s ankle boots and booties on sale…
While it’s still early in the season, I’ve found a smattering of current ankle boot styles on sale (or marked down in promotions). Here are a few that caught my eye…
Today you can still save 30% sitewide at Aquatalia! (code SINGLE30, through 11/12 ) I’m a big fan of Aquatalia boots, for both style and comfort. This weatherproof lug sole Chelsea boot is sturdy without being clunky. I really like this Cappuccino color, but it’s also available in black.
Just a really good-lookling classic zip bootie…(also weatherproof)
When I posted a selection of ankle boots last year, many of you mentioned that you were looking for Wide width options. Here’s a classic zip bootie offered in Wide, and under $100!
Here’s another bootie offered in a Narrow width in crinkled Burgundy patent.
Just a clean, classic Chelsea boot, also available in black leather and suede. (Part of me will always think of this style as “Beatle boots”…)
I love how the Bordeaux patent leather adds a refined element to balance out the ruggedness of the lug sole.
