review: jeffrey campbell brit wrap strap booties, $230
I’ve been looking for the perfect utilitarian boot for a long time. As much as I love the lace-up look, it just hasn’t worked for me, so when I discovered these slouchy strap booties on shopbop.com (fave!), I thought I had hit the jackpot.
Unfortunately, they weren’t what I was looking for, as hard as I tried to like them. The leather was too thick — enough so that there wasn’t sufficient slouch — and talk about heavy! These boots aren’t just utilitarian in appearance. In these, I felt like I ought to have been chopping wood, not walking around in my skinny jeans.
Jeffrey Campbell, I love your shoes — they’re unique, made of high-quality materials, and super stylish. These boots? They just weren’t for me.
