The weather outside may be frightful, but that doesn’t mean your pedicure should be anything but delightful. Bootie Pies make it possible to put your best feet forward even when winter snow or rain—or merely shivery temperatures—make flip-flops an option for only the most devoted and chill-proof toes. These warm suede boots with faux sheepskin linings may look like Uggs, but their built-in twist will make you say “Ahh!” The patent leather front portion of the boots presses down, baring the toes and providing the wearer with a comfy pad on which to rest their digits while polish is applied. When the pedicure is done, one can simply kick up one’s heels and go, leaving the fresh polish undisturbed and the rest of the foot cozy, warm and protected from the elements.
We love the idea of making pedicures possible in the winter months, so we’re willing to forgive the slightly awkward execution—it’s hard to make toeless boots look glam. So while these boots may toe the line between essential and frivolous, as a cold-weather pedicure solution, they’re definitely a step in the right direction.
