Reader Tip: Kayden Utility Boot from Target

Xhilaration at ShopStyle

A little while back, a reader tipped me off to these Xhilaration 'Kayden' Utility Boots, which she said had real leather uppers and were quite comfortable. I found them at my local Target store, and this weekend I bought them on sale for $17.48 down from $34.99. A fellow shopper commented on how cute they looked and said "Those so don't look like Target shoes"—meant to be taken as a compliment, of course!

Kayden Utility Boot from Target

I've been wearing them for the past two days (see my photo above) and they are worth every penny. If you're in the market for a warm weather boot—something rugged to toughen up a girly, floral dress, or a transitional shoe that you can wear with shorts when it's still kinda chilly—give the 'Kayden' a shot!
