Spring Booties – Transitional Footwear Never Looked So Fab!

I’m already thinking ahead to spring and dreaming about all the cute little sandals and open toe shoes I can’t wait to wear in March….uhh, o.k…April…well, I guess I mean May. You see, I live in Toronto (same weather as NYC), and realistically it’s not until then, that you can wear spring shoes without 1) freezing your feet off or 2) getting your shoes mucked up by all the gunk left outside from winter.

So what kind of footwear do you wear between seasons when you want to look and feel springy, but be practical too? Here’s a look at some fabulous transitional booties I came across that are giving me spring fever!

1. Popular Peeps

Peep toe booties like this perforated open toe bootie with deep side notches  look casual but classy. This bootie gives good coverage except for some stylish exposure at the sides and toes. This is a great bootie for gals who live in places where there are milder winters and earlier springs, or you might wear them anyway even if there still is a bit of a chill. Gorgeous color!

A retro bootie gets a fun touch with cool studs at the pull tabs. This almond toe studded ankle boot makes a hip fashion statement with its modern shape and trendy light beige color.

Slingback booties have been having their moment. This is a nice one. It’s the Holt Slingback Bootie from Treasure and Bond. Take a close look at the wide elastic slingback strap that refreshes the look of this almond-toe bootie with a flared block heel. This bootie is unique in that the color works with your winter blacks but can also go with spring’s navy blues, creams, and just about any other color.

  1. HI Deborah. Can you show how to wear the full leg crop pant and jean. It’s a new look for me and I like it but not sure how to wear it , I’m 66 and a size 10, 5″3″”. shoes or sneakers? booteies?

  2. I like sexy, lacy booties that are open at the back which is cooler for when the weather gets warmer. I would wear them with skinny jeans, capris, a flowery flowing skirt, or a sheath dress. Laced up booties are so pretty! I don’t see any reason why not to wear them at any age. It all depends on your personal style. I would wear them with a calf length straight skirt or dress and I think they would also look nice with light blue boyfriend jeans, rolled up. I have always loved boots! Booties are especially good for ladies that don’t like their feet!

    1. Have you done an article before on what to wear with booties? I did some googling one day after trying on booties and nothing looked right; I had on the wrong pants. Booties look good with skinny jeans and leggings BUT I can’t wear either one because though I am a size 12 my legs are very thick.. Should/can you wear booties under jeans and still look in style? I’m 73 for the correct.

      1. Hi Paula, If you don’t feel good in skinny jeans or leggings tucked into booties, what about a straight leg or boyfriend cut pair that you cuff up slighlty? if that still doesn’t work then sure a bootie under pants is fine too.
