Not yet stepped out to shop for your winter wardrobe? This is absolutely your last week to do so before the chill sets in. The must-have item this season is the shootie, a shoe-boot-sandal hybrid, anointed a 'fierce' fashion accessory.
From the covers of fashion glossies to the runways of Alexander McQueen and Moschino the shootie is everywhere, and now at a store near you. You can choose from suede to shiny gold to laser cutouts. The best part? There are options to suit every budget.
At Tod's, Sergio Rossi or Giuseppe Zanotti the prices start from approximately R 30,000. High street brands such as Aldo have chic variations in suede priced between R 4,000 to R 6,000, while affordable street fashion stores, such as those at Janpath, have pairs in colours like red and camel brown, priced anywhere between R 1,200 and R2,000.
