Your Tireless Open-Toe Boot Quest Becomes My Good Question

From the SheFinds Forums: I am looking for a pair of black, open toed, stiletto heeled boots Cameron Diaz wears in the film In Her Shoes. They reach the mid-calf, and have a small silver buckle on the side of the foot.

Ladies, there are so many message boards devoted to finding these boots! So far, we know that the costume stylist on the set of the 2005 film used a rental company to supply that particular pair of peeptoe boots, but since we don't have a designer name and it's been three years, it might be time to start looking for something similar but just as sexy. Luckily for all you In Her Shoes-ophiles, peeptoe boots are actually a trend this summer.

Which leads me to ask my own Good Question: Are peeptoe boots really something you'd wear? For summer?

Don't get me wrong, I love me some peeptoes, especially in the summer when I've actually shelled out for a pedi. And I live in my boots in the winter. But a hybrid? I'm not so sure. The ArdenB nylon boots above ($30) look like pantyhose gone awry (that's what happens when you try to stick your already-stiletto-clad foot into a pair of delicate nylons!) and Martin Margiela's open-toe knee boots ($945) are like the product of a science experiment (and a very expensive one, at that) where two seasons' worth of shoes were stuck in a blender and put on puree.


I could actually, maybe get behind Chloé's patent leather shoe-boots ($451) since they're a little lower and are on par with the ankle-high S&M-ish gladiator sandals that are so cute with flowey dresses. But boots designed for summer, like Nine West's white mid-calf Hastings boots ($64) and Martinez Valero's giraffe-and-lime Wilder booties ($175)? I just don't get it.

And intricate suede pairs, like Steve Madden's buckled-and-laced Bombb boots ($150) and Givenchy's lace-ups ($639) just seem impractical. Suede isn't a summer-friendly material, and goodness knows stepping open-toe first into a big slushy puddle isn't my idea of a wintery good time.

So what gives, seekers of the Elusive Cameron Diaz Peeptoe Boots? Hip me to the hotness of this open-toe boots-in-the-summer trend. And for goodness sake, if anyone has found the actual boots from the movie, please let all of us know!
