Even though summer is coming to an end and the temps are starting to cool dowm (at least here in NYC), it’s probably still a little bit too early for you to think about packing away your sandals and putting boots on your feet. That’s why we went on a mission to find the best summer to fall transition shoe: the cut-out bootie. These shoes are perfect to wear in the fall since they’re close-toed, but won’t make your feet sweat on warmer days. The cut-outs on the sides allow your feet to breathe, which is exactly what you’ll want from now into the beginning of fall.
And since they’re so popular, we were able to find cut-out booties at almost every price point. With shoes by Free People, Sam Edelman, Dolce Vita, Jeffrey Campbell and even, Forever 21, there’s a bootie out there for any girl’s budget. But don’t feel bad if you want to splurge, because you’ll wear ’em again in the spring. So check out all the great options in our slideshow, you won’t be able to pass these shoes up.
