Ever since I discovered this Instagram picture on @theshoegirl’s Instagram profile a few months ago, I couldn’t stop thinking about those gorgeous caged booties. Something about them was screaming expensive to me, but I couldn’t recall any designer doing such a caged suede bootie style in the last couple seasons. For weeks, I tried to identify and hunt them down, but no such luck! The caged design reminded me of the famous YSL cage heels from Spring 2009 as well as Louboutin’s Coussin booties which I both loved very dearly. I was already giving up hope when suddenly I came across two (!) great alternative finds in one day. First one is Schutz‘ “Sid” suede bootie which originally retailed for a whopping $270, but is now currently on sale for less than $140. And the second one, and my personal favorite if I might add, is Aldo‘s “Lavinia” caged ankle bootie which looks spot-on to the booties in the picture and cost only $90!
Aldo “Lavinia” is also available at Aldo (Canada).
