Shiny Prospects: Fall Boots Take on a Different Sheen

September 4, 2012 • By Karla Mae

Bling may be taking a back seat this season as the boots bring on the dazzle with practically no hardware! Check out the latest sparkly releases at Shopbop, and see how the biggest names reinvent eye-catching glamour.


New Monkey Booties, $395, Marc by Marc Jacobs

These lace-up, lug-soled booties merit a cool stamp with its crackled metallic leather and lightly stitched “M” on the sides. Match with skinny denims and a dark sweater.


West Metallic Suede Engineer Boots, $375, Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent

We’ve had our eye on these slouchy suede boots for a while now. The distressed look mixed in with black/gold dusting makes these boots perfect for bohemian dresses worn at music festivals.


Ricky Glitter Booties, $233, Madison Harding

It’s time to update your clubbing look with more modernist details like sculpted heels and black glitters. Perfect with leather pants and a one-shoulder satin top.


DANNIJO Swift Haircalf Booties, $343, Matt Bernson

These slouchy and fringed suede boots give a fun Western feel, but add glitter-covered heels and you got yourself a country star. This pair would be absolutely wonderful with sanded denims and silken blouses.


Newbury Crinkle Booties, $550, Rag & Bone

We have to confess, these crinkled copper-tone booties are our favorites mainly because we can wear them with practically anything. Plus their stacked leather heels are pretty damn sturdy.
