Four Perforated Boots: Would You Wear One?

Four Perforated Boots: Would You Wear One?

Perforated panels give footwear a fashionable edge and makes boots breezy enough to wear in warm weather. I can see how perforation might repel many women, but I'm actually loving Aldo's flat perforated boot (#3) with its subtle color and architectural silhouette. How about you, would you wear any of these boots?

Perhaps. I like the versions with the smaller mesh ... the last heeled boot is my fave.

I'm torn. They aren't practical, but I like the look of them, especially in nude tones. If I could wear high heels I would go for #2. But Alas I would have to wear #3...prob just won't be as flattering.

Guess what BB? I'm in the latest issue of Self Magazine! :-P

Totally sympathize! How come all the cute shoes are heels? I can't wear them due to Very Fussy Feet. :-(

Tell us more about the magazine appearance, dude :-)

On an entirely aesthetic level, I really like them, but once I begin to think about function and comfort...not so much. However, #2 is look really cute to me. Alas,in my dry, dusty area this boot wouldn't be so great. No one wants a sweaty, dirty foot, ne?

I'm torn, too! I like the look of them, but I'm not sure how I could pull them off...

Meh. I'm not going to be buying these. They're okay but I'd probably wear them once.

Plus, my boyfriend would laugh at me if I brought them home. I'll stick with my sexy stilettos.

I'm sure I'll see them on a hip looking girl when I'm out at dinner somewhere trendy and think she looks amazing in them.

I love this look. I would wear #1, #3 and #4. I don't love the flat look (sorry Budget Babe!).

I'd wear these with skinny jeans, a tank, colorful scarf and big sunglasses.

No. 2 but I think I'll leave that for the younger set, like yourself wink

I really don't like it, it looks like those plastic barbie shoes they sell little girls to play dress up in

What's weird is that the Pour La Victoire boots look exactly like the Alaia's. I don't know the name of those ones, but one of the Olsens had them in... black, I believe. I really do love that style though, so those are the ones I would wear.
