From the side, these wedges by Mini Market might look like just yet another ankle boot wedge to you, but if you look at the back of these darlings they suddenly become serious business. The zipper on the heel is so crazy, sexy, cool. Once these wedge booties had been discovered by the fashion blogosphere everyone went gaga for them, they sold out in an instant & were never to be seen again.

UPDATE (02/23/2010): Solestruck has now also stocked up on the Jeffrey Campbell “Pixie” ankle boots in black leather.
As always Jeffrey Campbell is the man to turn to if you’re looking for a budget-friendly version of these edgy, sold-out-everywhere wedges. His “Pixie” wedge booties may be suede and they also miss the hiking sole, but everything else from the shape to the zipper on the heel is identical. Plus, they are also more than $150 cheaper.
