The Wooden Heel

When I saw the picture above, my first thought was, "Oh! What a cute couple. Where do I find a boyfriend like that?!" But as I looked at the photo and styling in more detail, I became fascinated with the girl's shoes. I love the look of that thick dark wooden heel next to the leather. (And, I'm always a sucker for knee socks pulled above a pair of boots on bare legs.)

So I set off on a search for something similar. Like shoe window-shopping online. It's fun, you know?

Love the blue suede color here:

These green ASOS boots are probably my favorite. Love the mossy color and the little pop of wood at the heel. I'm definitely a neutral/earth tone color girl, and these would fit into my wardrobe easily:
And then, these purple ones are super hot. I would totally wear these. Although sometimes I shy away from purple because I'm not sure how to style it as well. But, the low heel is a definite plus for me, as I'm a pretty tall gal. Besides the boot, these would probably be easiest to wear around campus. 

What do you think about the wooden heel? Which style above do you like the best?


  1. Oh wow I love the picture! (and I have a pair of Miu Miu wooden platforms that have been my staple shoe for this summer!) So we are nsync!
