What’s a hootie? If you’ve never heard of the style, don’t be alarmed—it’s actually a term we kind of just invented to describe these heel-bootie hybrids we’ve been seeing around lately. From Céline to Acne Studios to Zara, it seems like this semi-confusing shoe trend is about to be the next big thing—and we can definitely see why! Besides the fact that they look totally comfortable (the more coverage, the more comfort), they have the potential to be quite functional, if you think about it. Imagine pumps with a lot of extra coverage or ankle boots with an exceptionally low vamp—the uses are endless, especially with fall just around the corner.
