Bootie Style Update: On the Lookout for Cutouts

March 31, 2012 • By Karla Mae

Now that the weather is a little bit warmer, try showing some skin when wearing your favorite booties. A cutout design is a surefire way to heat up your style without stifling those feet that have gone through such a long winter of woolen stockings and closed boots.

At Shopbop, there are dozens of cutout booties from top brands that employ the concept of cutout designs and translate it with such panache. Here are our top five favorites from the bunch.

1. High-Heel Embossed Booties with Neon Piping, $495, ONE by Suecomma Bonnie

This snake-embossed leather bootie features a polygon-style cutout detail that perfectly goes with its neon yellow trim and jagged edges.

2. Amanda Booties, $285, L.A.M.B.

There’s a bit of a Spartan look on this leather thong bootie, which puts stitches and studs alongside its cutouts. It also features a covered stiletto heel of over 4 inches.

3. Cutout Booties, $242, Miista Ori

If you love a bit of the 70s, you can try out this dirty-white platform bootie with an interesting geometric cutout detail. It also has a stacked platform and heel with nonslip rubber heel patch. Far out.

4. Tongue Stiletto Booties, $575, Camilla Skovgaard

Bring some color into your outfit with this purple open-toed leather bootie. Alongside its cutout design, it features a nubuck trim and a buckled ankle strap. Perfect for clubbing.

5. Andrea Open-Toe Booties, $250, Miista

For a mix of the retro and some cultural aspects, try out this tan leather bootie with its multicolored woven inset. Its open toe and side cutouts make it look like a tribal footwear — on over 3 inches of stacked heel.
