Shoe Porn: Gray Criss-Cross Ankle Booties

gray boots suede

This will be the autumn that I will finally buy ankle booties. Yes, I will. Ankle-high boots are seriously hot for Fall 2010, that's for sure. You can't go five steps in the mall without seeing another pretty pair. And the gorgeous gray leather of these lovely criss-cross buckle wrapped platforms is convincing me that mine, too, will need to be gray.

And in case you hadn't noticed, these particular high-heeled boots are crazy frickin' bad-@ss.


Move over flip-flops and gladiator sandals, it's getting time for something a little warmer.

These Steven by Steve Madden Buckled Wrap Booties ($198) from Nasty Gal definitely have me mentally gearing up for the autumn runway, er, sidewalk action. Ankle booties go perfectly with skinny jeans or leggings and also can be paired with tights and a skirt or dress. You will rock ... it ... (if you can walk it) in these hot mamas.

Love the sexy cutouts on the side and the chunky wooden heels.

Go ahead. Make all the other moms jealous this fall. With 5.25-inch heels and a 1-inch platform, these booties are definitely making a statement. Don't mess with mama.

Are you getting riled up for new fall shoes? What kind?
