Fashion Wordsmith Oprah Introduces The World To The "Shabootie"

As if there weren’t already enough names out there for the stylish ankle boot (bootie and shootie spring to mind), Oprah has created a term all her own: the shabootie. Sounds kind of like a doo wop song lyric, but it’s got a nice nice ring to it. Oprah introduced the new fashion dictionary entry yesterday, when she and friends from Elle, O, and Harper’s Bazaar staged “shoe and handbag interventions” and replaced one woman’s very sad pig ballet flats with a pair of sleek, black shabooties, aka Stuart Weitzman’s cover up boots.

Weitzman may be the other authority in shabooties, but we think Oprah would appreciate olsenHaus’ black bootie, especially because the vegan brand produces 100 percent cruelty-free footwear. For something a little edgier, try Luxury Rebel’s Jenny shootie (which also comes in a giraffe print) or simply browse our guides to the best in booties and vegan shoes and handbags.
