I bought these boots months ago in size 5 from Nordstrom during an early fall sale and completely forgot about them until the weather started getting cooler. I pulled these out of my closet and wore them for the first time yesterday, and with all the compliments I got on them, they ended up being a great purchase!
I was looking for the perfect short boot to wear under boot-cut jeans and dress pants for a while. Something in black, with an almond shaped toe, so it’s neither pointy nor round, but somewhere in between. I needed a thin heel (I hate clunky boot heels!) between 3-3.5 inches (my favorite height for both attractiveness and comfort), and a brand that was neither too cheap nor too expensive.
I hate cheap boots because as soon as they scratch, they look awful because of the cheap leather dye jobs. However, since I’m going to beat up these boots all fall and winter (work, shopping, rain, mud…etc) I don’t want to tear up a really expensive pair. These Via Spiga “Linden” Booties are perfect! Almond toe, 3.5 inch heel, black leather, at a reasonable price point, with an expensive look to them.
And the best part about these boots is…they come in sizes 4 and 4.5! Oh, no, wait…the best part about them is…they’re on sale at Nordstrom! And the small sizes are still available!
I can attest to the comfort of these, since I just wore them yesterday for the first time without a pinch or blister in sight. And I can also attest to the look of them, because all day my co-workers were complimenting my boots…even the guys! These Via Spiga booties are available on sale at Nordstrom here:
