The Oregonian: Where the shoe ends and the bootie begins, the Shootie: Your Personal Stylist

RSS Tags | , , ,

First, there was the Jegging. Now comes the latest hybrid to gain popularity: The Shootie.

One of the hottest trends of the season, this hybrid of shoe and bootie has been around for some time. You most likely called it a bootie or ankle boot but with its discernible cut BELOW the ankle, it is, in fact, quite a different style. The shootie hits right on top of the foot and below the ankle while a bootie hits at or above the ankle.

The shootie is one of the most flattering silhouettes in the boot family. Its low stance, shows off more leg and exposes the very feminine ankle, which elongates your leg. I say, “The more leg you see the taller you look”. There are so many variances of this style, there is one for everyone’s personal style needs.
