IT Shoe of the Season: Miu Miu Open Toe Glitter Ankle Boots

August 31, 2011 • By Erika

Miuccia Prada has done it again.

Her unexpected combination of 1940s-style clothes with sparkling shoes for the Miu Miu Fall 2011 collection has generated a lot of buzz for the Italian designer.

So much so that the bow-trimmed, glitter-dripped, convex curved-heeled ankle boots that she sent down the runway are being heralded as the IT shoe of this Fall 2011.

They seem like they were made strictly for confetti party fantasies but no, these are going to be tried and worked with everything from 40s housewife frocks to granny chic cardigans and probably even Jersey Shore type sequined dresses because they’re just that in vogue.

Here we’ve gathered the places online where you can find these IT shoes for Fall 2011. We had to do this because not one retailer carries all of the available colors!

We’re kind of bummed that we couldn’t find the pink and gold combo that Hailee Steinfeld wore while laying in the grass in the Miu Miu Fall/Winter 2011 ad campaign but we’re hoping that those will be released soon. Either that or that particular color has really all sold out, which proves just how in demand these shoes are despite being launched only very recently and carrying a hefty $890.00 price tag.

First up is Nordstrom which carries these suede and glitter ankle boots with the side ruffle in both yellow and black:

We found this black flannel cloth version over at Neiman Marcus:

Miu Miu flannel side knot ankle boots in black/slate

The harness strap version in this blue and black version is also available:

Miu Miu crisscross harness ankle boots in baltico nero

It also comes in this silver and black color:

Last but not least are these silver and peach and gold and green colors:


Miu Miu glitter and suede ankle boots in silver and peach

Miu Miu glitter and suede ankle boots in gold and pistachio green

Just gorgeous colors aren’t they?

Wear these with beautiful navy coat, leg-lengthening black tights or go barelegged when it’s still early fall.

Of course we were just kidding about the Jersey Shore dresses. But hey, we’re not judging if that’s what you feel like wearing!
