63353_fpx Bloomingdales describe these as "booties". I'm not going to do that because, well, "booties" make me think of those little knitted things that babies wear, but whatever you want to call them, I think these are pretty sweet.  Of course, you don't need me to tell you that the shoe boot is this winter's footwear favourite - you'll already have seen them in every shoe store in the land. My mother has a brown pair of these from the 80s which are still in perfect condition. Guess what I'm going to be stealing this weekend?
