While trends come and go, the bootie is pretty much here to stay. The look deviates each year (remember glitter?) and this season, we’ve got our eye on something pretty specific: the cut-out boot. We like this trend because it adds some interest to the basic shoe, and we always love an opportunity to show off our slick hosiery game. This fall, shoe designers are giving us all sorts of cut-out options, from cool moto-inspired booties to really elegant grown-up versions. Click through for 10 of our favorite.
