The Miami-Boot Conundrum

It’s fall here in Miami. So what does that mean? In terms of weather, nothing… absolutely nothing. That said, despite Miami’s warm temps, its sexy sun-dwellers still love to dress to the fashions of fall.

Starting with fall’s main shoe – the boot – here are four alternatives that South Florida fashionistas can dress to the season while staying true to their Miami roots. 

Menswear Flat
Give your everyday loafer an upgrade by adding fun details and vibrant, metallic shades. Trendy enough to spice up any outfit, but comfortable enough to walk to lunch, Gucci’s “Princetown” Floral Print Mule Loafers should do just the trick.

Caged Heel
Taking gladiator sandals to the next level with a caged heel that fuses functional and sexy. This much-loved heel makes a serious statement, like the gold Christian Louboutin “City Jolly” Cage sandals that summon the acient Roman in all of us.

Block Heel
We might not be able to wear boots, but here in Miami, we definitely love our pumps. For a “heavier” twist on the fun heels you usually find strutting through the Magic City, opt for the block-heel pump. Perfect for fall, as the name implies, it comes with a thick, hefty heel, extra comfort, a sleek design and vibrant patterns. If you haven’t already, try one from Prada: this season’s deep blue suede moccasin with a chunky heel, metal clasps and fringe are sure to impress.

Peep-Toe Booties
Alright, so we wear boots… sometimes. But only if they’re booties, and only if they’re completely sexy. For a simple stunner that makes a big statement, go for the Givenchy “Ryka” Shark Tooth Open Toe Bootie: it’s black, it’s leather and it’s guaranteed to turn heads the moment you walk in the room.
