It’s time to bust out your springtime shoes, and there’s no better time than now to ditch those clunky winter boots for something much more comfortable and seasonally appropriate that can provide a happy medium between the chill of the winter and the swelter of the summer. The answer? Spring booties, of course! We’re not just talking about your everyday booties either.  We’re going all-in with spring cutout booties trending on the runways this season and beyond.

 

For the more curious shoe connoisseur, you might be asking what separates a traditional bootie from a cutout bootie? Regular booties tend to be designed in a shape that resembles boots, but features a slightly lower cut, most often ending either above, on, or below the ankle. Meanwhile, cutout booties are comprised of almost all the same features previously described, with the exception of distinctive cutouts that give this type of bootie its own style specification.

 

Cutout booties are essentially booties that feature unique cutouts throughout the design. These types of women’s boots can range from simple to complex depending on the creator’s intent. Some booties include strappy, intricate cutouts that expose various parts of the foot, while more conservative styles tend to gravitate toward cutouts around the ankle area. What really separates a cutout bootie from others depends on how it is crafted to properly fit a slightly exposed foot.

 

Below, we have collected a few popular Sole Society selections for 2018 and aim to highlight what makes these favorites so sought after.

 

NIKKIE

 

 

While the Nikkie is arguably a cutout bootie that differs from traditionally similar styles, it still fits this definition in spite of its own rebellious nature by offering a triangular low-cut dip around and below the ankle area.

 

NAHIA

 

The Nahia encompasses what cutout booties are all about. Open, split sides from bottom to top with a sophisticated strap around the ankle.

 

AZURE

 

 

Last, but certainly not least, is the Azure bootie. This super cute favorite features soft suede and a crisscross buckle strap. This design sets itself apart with double peek-a-boo cutouts on both sides of the shoe, making it the perfect companion for wherever the weekend takes you.

 

Short on time, but longing for new fall styles? We’ve rounded up our favorite seasonal picks to help you build the autumn wardrobe of your dreams.
