7 Booties Worthy of the Oscars

March 8, 2010 • By Erika

It’s the Oscars again and that means red-carpet-watching season. Boots usually take a back seat to pumps, platforms, and other strappy sandals at this time but because we love boots so much, we adamantly think boots can still be worn even for a glamorosa event like the Oscars.

So I headed on over to the online shoe store where I know I’ll find some of the swankiest boots, booties, and ankle boots around – Heels. Just a quick search already yielded some very interesting results, so I kept on truckin’ until I got this crop of 7 very promising Oscar-worthy ankle boots. My only requirement? They’ve got to be very high-heeled.

#1 Fergie Rylee Bootie

Sparkle and glitter to catch people’s attention on the red carpet? Check. On sale for $115.19.

#2 Rocawear Sigrid Boot

They may not be brand name, but these ankle boots have got the expensive-looking monogram style down pat.  $89.99.

#3 Guess Shoes Iola

Who says these are strappy sandals? Those are actually cutouts on these deceiving booties. $119.99.

#4 Rock and Republic Jolene JLEWAF009

This list can’t be without an ankle boot in luxurious black and grey plush suede. $309.99.

#5 N.Y.L.A. Culver Bootie

Boots can bring on the shine as well as pumps and platforms too. (That’s actually white mesh fabric covering the cutout parts on these ankle boots – makes it dressier doesn’t it?). $129.99.

#6 DV by Dolce Vita Carly Heel

If you’re going to be fighting for the best-dressed award, then better do it in some gladiator-inspired booties. These are also available in dark silver. On sale for $89.09.

#7 Kelsi Dagger Rosabella

Sweeten your look with this delicate aubergine bootie with a metallic leather rose. Now only $175.49 down from $194.99.

Although we’ll probably never see these actual shoes at the Oscars as that’s reserved for haute couture, wearing these shoes would certainly make any regular old day feel like a red carpet event.
