You know what I’m talking about: those short studded boots IT girls and models master so well.

Some years ago these booties could be seen at Balmain, Isabel Marant, Chloe and Giuseppe Zanotti. Now you can buy them at decent prices almost anywhere online. Here is our inspirational vs rational selection.

Black is a natural option but if you like color, red and purple will make a cool statement into your wardrobe. Buckle up! It’s time to plan the styling. Wear the booties with leather pants or vinyl trousers, why not? If you want to play more with tailoring, choose classic cigarette pants, a men’s shirt and a disco jacket.


Jeans and studded boots? A fail-safe, fast & stylish combo for fall/winter season. Match them with your trusted slim pair or choose a frayed denim to nail this year’s cropped+vintage trend. What about mixing the booties with mesh tights and a denim skirt? Add a satin bomber and a choker to complete the ensemble.
