Lace Up Bootie: An Obsessive Search

July 16, 2015


Let me tell you a shoe saga. But first a confession: sometimes when I decide I want something I get obsessive about it, like cannot stop until I have just the right thing obsessive. I saw these Miista lace up booties on an Instagram account I follow and knew they looked like the perfect shoe. A lace up bootie is wearable now, adds the perfect edge to any outfit, AND transitions perfectly to fall.  So I hunted for these shoes online and found them on sale. When they arrived in my size (I usually wear an 8.5 or 9, so I ordered a EU 39 which is equivalent to a 9) my toes literally hung off the end. I was crushed. I sent them back and decided to keep looking. Then I found this pair at Aldo. Well of course my size is sold out. Finally, I found this Jeffrey Campbell Cors pair. It was love. They were a total splurge, but I ordered them anyway. The leather color is what sold me. It goes with basically anything. In my search, I found multiple pairs I liked, so I thought I would share the fruit of my labor in case anyone was as crazy as me. I’ve linked them all below including multiple places to buy the Jeffrey Campbell pair because they all seem to have different sizes.

    I’m exactly the same way…I’ll get obsessed with something and hunt it down mercilessly until I find it! I can totally understand your obsession with these booties…they are pretty fierce.

    I want them all. They are on my wish list right now along with lace up flats. Ugh, why can’t I have unlimited money to shop?!

    Glad you found the perfect pair! It’s always sad when you find something you like but the sizing is off, so it’s good your story had a happy ending 🙂

    Okay, we’re the same- I get this way, too. I get straight up obsessive when there’s a piece I fancy that I don’t yet have in my closet; the hunt is ON. Hahahaha. These booties are so cool- I can’t wait to see how you style ’em up!

    Those are great shoes! I can’t wait to see how you style them. I have been wanting something similar like the ones from Nordstrom.

    Hahaha what a hunt for the perfect pair of shoes. The worse is when you have to send it back, especially when it comes to online shopping. You are definitely crazy as I am because I would have done the same thing to find the perfect pair of shoes;) Thanks for sharing – Great choice!
