The unseasonable “Seattle-like” weather in Chicago has hampered me from wearing sandals or opened-toed shoes. I purchased the Rag & Bone “Margot” bootie at Nordstrom’s Anniversary sale. Although I do technically have another Margot bootie in suede, the distressed leather and sleek dual zippers stopped me in my tracks. Rag & Bone boots are ridiculously comfortable, although their sizes do vary based on styles from year to year. This style typically runs a 1/2 size small, for this pair I actually sized up a full size! I admit at first I purchased a 1/2 size larger but after walking all day and trying them on again n the evening, it was clear that snug is not good, a full size up fixed that. Rounded toe,stylish working zippers on both sides, 3.25″ squared chunky heel. Rag & Bone boots rarely go on sale, so get them while you can and see why their edgy, understated boots have become a cult following.
