Shoe Trend Alert: Get Acquainted With Peep-Toe Booties (They're Here To Stay)

Sure, we pondered the practicality of peep-toe booties back in 2009, but it’s a new year and we’re approaching these somewhat unconventional shoes with an open mind in 2010. In part because we have seen a few pair we’d like to own, but mostly because WWD got designers to reveal sketches from their Fall ’10 collections and it looks like peep-toe booties aren’t going anywhere.

Designers like Vince Camuto and Donald J. Pliner will be offering their own versions come September, so it’s time we all get used to the idea of an open-toe boot.  Whether you wear them now with a pair of tights, or wait until that transitional weather in spring without, we’ve gathered some really amazing pairs that are sure to convert you:

joelle open toe booties

Wear these black leather L.A.M.B. booties now. The hardware will add instant edge to any outfit.

There’s still time to get some wear out of these suede Vince Camuto booties. They’ll look great with a dress or with skinny jeans.

These brown Luichiny booties will last you well into spring thanks to a well-placed cutout at the heel.
