Booties are an undeniably fun type of shoe: the kind that says you're up for anything. A sexy hybrid of shoes and boots, they combine the best aspects of both: sturdy comfort and head-turning appeal. Though the style is specific, the variations are many: flat suede ankle boots, open-toe stiletto styles, lace-up booties with a chunky heel, simple sky-high wedges, plus buckled, zippered and studded styles. And since they're warmer than a shoe but cooler than a boot, they work for all seasons, meaning they look just as adorable with tights and a wool dress as they do with jeans as they do with a pleated skirt and tee. Since the only things we love more than shoes are practical shoes, booties are a shoe in for best pair ever.
