A woman’s footwear is an essential piece of any outfit – just ask Carrie Bradshaw. The right pair of shoes can make or break even the most carefully constructed ensemble, so it’s important to choose wisely when purchasing shoes. Since it’s winter, most women are wearing boots. Whether they’re ankle-high booties, or over-the-knee thigh-highs, boots are a winter staple. Most women opt for classic black or brown boots, but some women like to make a statement with their footwear. These women want their shoes to turn heads and start conversations because they are so eye-catching. For better or worse, we’ve put together a list of the ten most unique boots currently available from Nordstrom, Bloomingdales and more. Check them out:
1. Jeffrey Campbell Siren Bootie, $124
We’re starting off our list of unique boots with a relatively tame pair. Yellow and blue plaid might not be totally head-turning, but these booties are certainly interesting. What will put them over the edge is what you wear them with. Pair them with some clashing colors in your outfit and people will certainly be scratching their heads.
2. Aquazzura Dorado Detailed Boot, $2500
We love celestial patterns. Anything with the moon or the sun on it is good in our book. So these interesting thigh-high boots are a winner as far as we’re concerned. Wearing them will certainly spark conversations. The only issue we have with these is their $2,500 price tag. Yikes!
3. Gucci Ilse 2-in-1 Latex Boot, $1,450
What in the world is happening here? These thigh-high boots are actually designed to look like a bare leg, which is totally tacky…but also awesome. It’s certainly enough to land them on our list of unique boots! A huge plus is that these can actually be converted into a pair of sexy, strappy red heels if you take the flesh-colored lining out.
4. Jeffrey Campbell Cry4U Over-the-Knee Slouch Boot, $259
How amazing are these multi-colored glittery boots? They’re definitely interesting and not for those who like to keep it simple! If you want to make a statement, these flashy slouchy boots are perfect. We can imagine them looking amazing at a New Years Eve party with a little black dress.
5. Giuseppe Zanotti Bimba Over-the-Knee Boot, $1,095
The silhouette of these thigh-high boots is super sexy and flattering, but the hot pink color is what makes them stand out. If you’re a fan of neutrals, not neons, then steer clear of these. The bright color of these Giuseppe Zanotti boots is likely to blind your friends and have them asking, “Couldn’t you just get those in black?”
6. Christian Louboutin Moulin 120mm Boot, $1,995
We’re not even going to lie about these Christian Louboutin boots. They’re over-the-top. They’re bold, wild and absolutely chaotic…and we are in love with them! These are the most stylish of our unique boots, and we cannot get enough of them. Pair them with a black t-shirt, jeans and no jewelry, and you’ll have an outfit that will turn heads in a good way.
7. Miu Miu Faux Fut Boots, $355
Maybe it’s the brightly colored fur, but we feel like these boots were stolen right off the set of Sesame Street. Are they supposed to look like a beloved children’s character? Are they supposed to look like a striped yeti’s foot? We have no idea what’s going on, and neither will your friends if you decide to wear these.
8. Christian Louboutin May Wong Brocade Fur-Trim Bootie, $1,695
We don’t even know where to begin with these Louboutin booties. There’s hot pink fur trim, a wild floral pattern and a tassel in the front. There’s so much going on at once, we’re not sure where to look. Whether it’s good or bad, these shoes will definitely catch people’s attention!
9. Balenciaga Thigh High Boot, $675
Are these boots? Are they high heels? Are they leggings? What exactly is happening with these Balenciaga thigh-highs? The turquoise color is enough to land them on our unique boots list, but add the skin-tight shaft to them and they’re just too much.
10. Gucci Candy Dragon Embroidered Satin Boot, $3,790
We’ve saved the best for last: these Gucci boots have so much going on, they’re likely to make cars crash when you walk down the street. First of all, they’re made of stain, which is not cray on its own. Add in the crystal-encrusted heel, the removable crystal bow and the embroidered dragon, and you’ve got a boot that will make heads spin.
