Cut out boots are the best selling shoes these days! They are by far my most favorite trend of 2013-2014. These will never go out of style and looks like they can last long. Balenciaga had the original idea for Spring/Summer 2011. So far they are the edgiest comfortable shoes ever. There has been many different kinds of designs for gorgeous and edgy cut out booties. I recently just bought a pair of oxford/combat style ones at TOPSHOP while there is a sale going on until May 4. I only got them for about PHP 599. Check out the sales at TOPSHOP right now before it ends. Everything there is really worth it. Id love to own the Balenciaga inspired ones someday when Im saved up again as much as I love to collect almost all kinds of shoes once I find my size and a not so expensive one because nowadays Im not needing that many heels unlike before. Cut out boots are the most convenient booties ever. They can be used for any season as you won't feel hot in them unlike those cushioned ones. They are also more comfortable and convenient than the high cut combat boots which are more made for a colder climate.
But these cut out boots can be worn even at outdoor events like music festivals and concerts. Cut out boots can be worn with any outfit even with your booty shorts. These boots are really made for walking and will make you look super cute at Coachella.
There are many styles (heels and no heels) and are being sold at many stores such as TOPSHOP, River Island, Forever 21 and new look. I was very close to getting a pair at River Island (similar to the Balenciaga model) on sale but then it was damaged and unfortunately the last pair. But theres always a next time if I can find a color block version at new look. Even Jeffrey Campbell who is known for his edgy leather shoes has these cut out boots.
Cut out boots are even used by many fashion bloggers these days as Ive seen them multiple times on Lookbook. They are such a hit or I shall call it a trend instead of a fad. A lot of them are seriously to die for. To me I think they are easier to match than creepers because you need to have a certain right outfit if you want to wear creepers. But with these cut out boots, you will look absolutely chic, wearing them with any outfit of your choice. For example, flirty meets edgy!
With the whole design, I see some inspirations from shoes that are required to be worn at private schools which are constantly black. Preppy and punk are the two words to seriously describe them. You can also wear them with your super cute school outfits. They will look great with larger framed glasses. Preppy will always partner up with punk to complete a cute English punk outfit.
Stay tuned for my outfit in these cutout shoes!
