‘Tis the season of giving. I recently went through my shoe closet and gave a few pairs of shoes to my niece. She was absolutely obsessed with a particular pair – a rainboot by Isabel Toledo for Payless collection, circa 2010. A graphic, chic and fun bootie featuring black nylon and faux patent trim. The front-fold fabric design secures with a bungee-cord strap, making for an adjustable fit. The funky zig-zag toothed platform sole continues to the chunky heel, which is finished in matte-black. A practical bootie that makes a bold statement. It’s no wonder why my niece is obsessed with them.
