Patriot Ankle Boot
These are really cute and go with everything. Because they go with everything I wore them quite a bit when I first ordered them, sadly that damaged the heel a little bit. They are really nice so I will have to ration the amount of time I wear them.
Unlike the nation ankle bootie...
...these boots are a little cheaper in quality. An almost identical boot to the nation ankle (minus the harness). The leather on this style however is lacking the quality that I found in the nation boot. Either way still a super cute and versatile bootie. These also fit a little different than the nation, possibly due to the change in leather? In the nation I had to order a size 8 when I usually wear 7's but in these the 7 are perfect. Cute boots, still deciding on whether to keep...
These Boots are Amazing
First of all I was late to the ankle boot craze because I didn't find them particularly flattering. I was hesitant to order any but the craftsmanship, versatility, heel + shaft height of these were very appealing. I am SO GLAD I have them! They're made really well (I like a leather boot that I have to break in a little - to me that indicates good, long lasting quality). My heels slip just the slightest bit because I'm in between an 8 and a 9 with all shoes and I sized down for these but I think with a little wear my heel will find a spot. The heel height is short enough that I can work (standing up) in them for hours without discomfort. The shaft height is perfect for my legs so I can wear them with dresses, skinnies or under flares. I ordered black and I want a brown pair too because they go with everything!
