Style tip?  We’re already seeing the peep toe boot this Fall - and it appears that the trend will continue through Spring.  It’s an offbeat trend, but the peep toe detail softens the inherent hardness of the boot.

What do you think?  Would you wear peep toe boots?  Share your thoughts in the comments!

    This makes no sense. The reason you wear a boot is because it’s cold, raining or snowing. Meaning to protects your little piggies from the elements. Now you want to stick them out there? How about no.

    Yeah, these peep toe boots aren’t all that practical. They don’t keep your feet safe from the elements. But this twist seems to be gaining in popularity among the powers that be in fashion…I’m interested to see how long (or short) this lasts.

    Ugh there are not words to describe how much I hate this look. The heavy / elegant profile of a boot ruined by random toes.

    To be honest I’m getting kind of sick of peep-toes in general, they’ve been omnipresent for how many seasons now. I long for the day when a more comfortable to wear toe profile returns to fashion!

    Not for me. I like my feet to look either functional or feminine. Both if possible. The only way I’d wear peep toe boots is with slacks because I don’t like the chunky-foot look with leg– it just looks so awkward. The Miss Sixty dress would look so much pretty with strappy sandals.

    I vowed never to wear these…until…I found a pair that I could not resist by Steve Madden! They are not so bad ladies. They add edge, an unexpected twist and remind me of Victoria Beckham! It’s just a trend like anything else, try them! Just wear them when you know you’ll be inside like to dinner or to a party. Next season you could go back to “normal” boots, so why not give em a whirl?

    when has fashion ever been super practical? and what about the people who live in warm places with no need to keep their toes warm? i personally love this look as long as they keep it at the ankles, anything higher than that truly does ruin the classic look of a boot

    I beg to differ. Many of us who live in warm climates like the look of boots but would look pretty stupid wearing them. The open toe, ankle boots are perfect for us. I hope they become very popular and even those up north could wear them in the summer.

    Why peeo toe boots?. I wear my boots in fall and winter with socks, But with peep toe boots I feel my toes cold and exposed to the water during the rain.
    How is possible that you’re wearing a coat, scarf, cloves and hat and youre feet are uncovered?.
    Boots for winter and protect toes, nor for expose your toes.
