Catch Of The Day - A Shoe With Contradictions

Rowen Bootie HALOGEN®
I first saw this shoe last fall.  From what I was able to learn, this style has been around for several seasons mainly at high-end designer stores. Just this fall it seemed to make it to the mass market and I saw it first at my mall's Nordstrom. For those of us who are shoe aficionados, it is so interesting to study.  

Is it a Pump? Yes, by definition, according to the Shoe Glossary:  "In the U.S., 'pumps' exclusively refers to women's shoes with a kitten or higher heel. Pumps can be made from any material, but traditional patent leather is popular. Pumps are mostly worn with a suit or a uniform, but are also worn with formal and informal dresses, skirts, trousers, and jeans."

Is it a bootie? Yes, according to  LUXURY ITALIAN SHOES; "Booties are usually more of half footwear, half shoe (boot) look. They stop just at your ankle. Booties could also have a peep toe or even cut out sections the location where the ankle boot is generally solid throughout."

However, what really got my attention was the "wickedly plunging topline".  I tried it on a month back in the store and determined that even with my high arch it could work.  Its original price was $99.95, but for Black Friday and still today, $39.98 at Nordstrom. That price and it's beautiful unique style makes it the catch of the day. Personal Note: I did size up 1/2 size.  Enjoy.
