Matej ankle bootie adds effortless edge

Why: Check out these killer ankle boots inspired by high-end fashion designer Tabitha Simmons. The multiple gold buckles and zipper detail say punk and the gold toe rand gives them extra edge, making them part shit-kicker, part biker boot, and a big fashion win. These open-heeled booties have a side cutout detail to showcase your foot-cleave (yes, that’s a thing). Wear them with snake-printed denim, a cropped T-shirt, and a jean jacket with leather sleeves for an all-around rockin’ ’80s look. Or you can take a stab at the new hipster uniform and pair them with a tight black skirt and a long-in-the-back/short-in-the-front T-shirt with an oversize anorak. Best of all, the mid-heel height is totally manageable in terms of wearing them all day. They come in a brown leather version as well.
