BCBG Max Azria Rachel Wedge Boots

In search of the perfect wedge boot for fall, I stumbled upon the ‘Rachel’ from BCBG Max Azria:

I’ve never been big on pointy toes on boots especially on high-heeled ones, but this one looks like it’s worth a try!

The proportions are all just right; the boot shaft transitions seamlessly into a pointy toe and the toe into a 4″ wedge heel.

Speaking of the wedge heel, it’s covered and embellished with this screwed-on metal plate which I am just absolutely CRAZY about:

Love how the metal plate takes this perfectly proportioned boot right into the crazy zone!

Although there is one minor (or major?) flaw that has got me questioning the design of this boot and that’s the fact that it’s got no opening anywhere whatsoever. Well, there’s the top of the boot of course but other than that, this boot doesn’t have any zippers, buttons or anything of that sort!

 Unless this boot has a wide calf or was made specifically for women with skinny calves, I suspect this style is going to be a hard sell.

Good thing then that the online boutiques that carry this boot offer two-way shipping and returns so that way, we can try out the boot’s fit before committing to its purchase.
