In These Shoes: Apepazza Liverpool Booties

My closet is filled with all manner of impractical footwear. There are the 120mm Dries Van Noten pumps that I can barely walk in (but make my legs look amazing), the yellow suede Prada flats that require a cleaning after every outing (NYC filth will do that), and a pair of Zara platform boots that are so inflexible, I literally have to stomp around in them. But all of these pale in comparison to the most impractical shoes I own: a pair of peep-toe wedge boots. They are hot, but there's pretty much a 3-week window at the change of each season in which I can wear them--they're too drafty for winter and too covered for summer, but these cool, what-the-heck-do-I-wear temperatures that we're having right now are just right. The pair I own is black, which I find a bit limiting; the taupe-y nude color (called "bittersweet") of these Apepazza Liverpool booties is, dare I say, a bit more practical, because it would work much better with bare legs, thereby extending your window just a bit more. I love the rugged look of these, with the sturdy stacked heel, lace-up front and buckle details, but the peep-toe keeps things fashion-forward and sexy. Wear them with skirts of all lengths for mile-long legs, or tuck your skinny jeans into them--they're simultaneously chic and casual, thanks to their workboot-inspired design. For Italian-made shoes, they're a very reasonable $199, and lucky for you, it's Goldyn's anniversary sale this week, so you can take an extra 25% off (this applies to everything else on the site too) with code ANNIVERSARY 10/4-10/10. True, with such a limited time in which to wear them, they might not pass SheFinds' cost-per-wear test with flying colors, but you can't put a price on fabulousness.
