Regular readers of my blog know that I generally do not wear heels higher then three inches, and most of the time I wear heels that two inches or less. I often wear sneakers as they are comfortable and luckily for me, super on trend. That said, I don’t always want to wear sneakers, but, when I am looking at a day spent walking all over the city, the thought of heels even when they are under two inches does not thrill me. The other day when I was online at Starbucks waiting for my coffee, I noticed a young women wearing a pair of gray suede booties that were totally flat—no heel. They were slightly pointed, and had a cute little zipper on the side. This was not the first time I had seen someone wearing boots like this, and I made a mental note to make sure I make an effort to track down a pair of these boots. Being almost 5’8” a pair of boots like these are just to good to be true. No heel, chic and not sneakers? Sign me up! But I know not everyone is 5’8”, and I know not everyone has modelesque proportions, and not everyone desires to shorter then they are. Do you think one has to be tall and thin to pull off a pair of boots with no heel? I generally feel “not quite polished”, if I am not wearing some kind of heel, but with the sporty chic trend, this feeling is staring to change, and I must admit, it does make life a bit easier living in a city like New York. So, would you wear a pair of booties with no heel? How often do you go sans heels? And if you would wear a pair of boots like these, Sam Edelman currently have a pair that come in taupe, camel and black. Oh boy I don’t think I am going to stick to my shopping ban.
