Shooties (shoes + booties): Ugly or uber chic?



This letter popped up in our mailbox this week.

Dear Divas,

I am in need of true sartorial advice. I think I am in love with these shoes.


But they're shooties! I vowed I would never get shooties! I know they are going to make my legs look like stumps that are getting swallowed by menacing, black blobs. But yet, I am drawn. What do you and the rest of the Divas think: Shooties, yay or nay?

Your friend,
Sigh, I know what it feels like to walk in Carrie's shoes (bad pun intended). I, too, have ridiculed the shootie (i.e., shoe + bootie). And yet, this season, I also kinda sorta like them. Is this the perfect Florida alternative to the knee-high, closed-toe boot? Should we wear them with jeans and skirts and dresses and say to heck with the potential leg-shortening issues?
Let's help a sister out and discuss.
