Carlos by Carlos Santana Whirl Wedge Booties

April 7, 2011 • By Erika

Our sister site Your Next Shoes already wrote about these shoes we’re featuring today way back in January but that was when they were desperate for new spring shoe styles and we were still reveling in all the gorgeous fall/winter boots.

But now that we’re officially a little over two weeks into spring — and much too late to be holding on to last season’s boots — we figured that NOW is the perfect time feature these shoes.

So even though we’re a little late in writing about them here on Boots 4 You compared to most blogs, we think your disappointment with us will disappear once you lay eyes on these wondrous Whirl wedge booties from Carlos by Carlos Santana:

Carlos by Carlos Santana Whirl wedge booties, $119.95 (Sold Out)

Here’s our peace offering, in the form of these lovely wear-with-all-your-spring-and-summer-outfits wedge booties.

The Carlos by Carlos Santana Whirl wedge booties feature a snake-embossed leather upper accented with tonal patent leather on the ankle strap, soles and along the back of the heel. You can adjust the buckled ankle strap according to how you want it to fit but it’s that sexy back zipper that’s the real entry of this shoe!

A word of warning though: the height on that covered wedge heel is a staggering 4 inches so if you’re not comfortable with that, we suggest you leave it to the pros. Not only because that’s a HIGH heel to teeter on but also because these wedge booties don’t have any platform sole whatsoever to help balance out the heel height.

Happy shoe shopping (and we hope you’ve forgiven us)!
