I know you already know I have a thing for Nine West shoes. Nine West shoes are affordable, well-made and extremely stylish. I just ordered two more pairs for the holiday season, so you’ll be seeing a LOT of Nine West on Shoe Smitten!
About a month ago I made a visit to the flagship store on 5th Avenue in New York for a press event (Fred was there!). These DONLEY booties drew me in from the moment I saw them perched on a shelf. Even so, I decided to pass them by for the moment and take a look at everything else. Don’t want to be hasty,right? The PAOLETTA leopard pumps and SMOOCH round-toe wedges were gorgeous and I seriously considered taking them home, but instead went with my first love of the day – DONLEY, in black suede. After all, shoe love is true love.
DONLEY is a military-inspired high heel lace up bootie with buckle accents. I’ve been wearing them everywhere paired with my favorite new green cargo skinnys and black leggings. These boots make me feel so confident and powerful! You wouldn’t think just by looking at them that they would be comfortable for all-day wear, but I can walk for hours in them, and thanks to the lug sole I haven’t slipped once. The 4″ heel is complemented by a 1/2″ platform. I’ve enjoyed DONLEY so much, I’m considering buying DONLEY in green/brown suede.
*note to readers: I received the Nine West DONLEY for free at the press event (all press attendees were given a choice of one shoe to take home), but this in no way influenced my opinions expressed here.
