I love booties for fall and even winter, and these ones with a platform and chunkier heel are much easier to walk in (thus more practical for day to day wear) then other heel options of similar height.
A group of teenagers shout across the road: "Nice boots" "Thank you." Yes, they are. Durable, waterproof and amazing colour. The brand doesn't matter as long as you're happy with your boots. Thankfully we have boots and we can walk.
