These Franco Sarto boots were one of those purchases that I was initially not so sure about. I never buy suede shoes as they get dirty so easily, and the whole open-toe boot thing just seems a little bit counterintuitive. But forever reason, when I saw them on Piperlime, I was intrigued and decided to order them.
They are super comfortable (the heel with hidden platform is just high enough to walk easily in,) extremely well made (especially when you consider the under $100 price tag,) and go with everything in my closet! So far I’ve paired em with skinny jeans and a bright dress and black tights. I’m looking forward to pairing with an all black outfit and cream cords (if I ever find the right pair!)
I can’t say enough good things about them… they’re possibily my favorite Fall purchase so far!
PS – The name of these boots is (oddly enough,) The Vegan… but they are not in any sense of the word, Vegan!
Note: The website says that sizing runs big… but I ordered my usual size and found that they fit perfectly.
