I give you the Matiko lace-up bootie. Its nothing really new in the half bootie, half sandal (sootie? sandootie? boondal?) category. No matter how you describe it, its all chic. If you squint and tilt your head sideways, the open lace detailing looks a teeny tiny bit similar to the Ann D's (which I am still pining over). Ummm, maybe not so much. I was thinking it would make a great addition to my already bursting-at-the-seams shoe closet. Just kidding, credit card...but they are nice, right?
