Shooties: Can You Get Past the Name and Buy a Pair for Fall?

AnthropologieI've been seeing a very disturbing word pop up on clothing and shoe websites lately ...


It's a combination between a boot and a shoe, and while it seems somewhat comfortable and definitely fashion forward, I'm not sure I can get past the name and buy the shoe.

Er, shootie.

Apparently, Anthropologie feels the same way. While this model in its catalog is clearly wearing shooties, Anthropologie insists on calling them booties.

They're not booties, they're shooties!

And very pretty shooties at that.

(Although at $388, YOU CAN'T AFFORD THEM.)


Check out some more shooties after the jump, then tell me in the comments whether you'll rock the look this fall -- and if so ...

Will you say the word aloud?



Macy'sThese shooties (Macy's, $109) are so pretty, they have me rethinking my shootie stance.

Macy's And these Betsey Johnson shooties (Macy's, $124.99 on sale) are sooooo sexy.


Macy'sIf you're looking for style AND comfort, on the other hand, these Aerosoles shooties (Macy's, $99) may be right up your alley.


Macy'sAnd these Michael Kors Shooties (Macy's, $165) ... well they're downright ... shootiful.

Oh no.

I've been infected.

How about you?

Do you own shooties? DO YOU WANT TO?
