Best Black Booties Reviewed & Rated
1. Dr. Scholl's Dakota
Another wedge option, this model is extremely comfortable without sacrificing style. Composed of man-made materials and built with a padded insole, the Dr. Scholl's Dakota is a quality purchase. The laces make it easy to get on and off and help secure the design to your foot with a more snug fit.
This model has an extra padded insole that provides more comfort on the foot – specifically the arch. Some designs can make the foot ache after a long day, but this model has additional padding to ease that pain. Many options are narrow and do not support wearers with wider feet. The Dakota is designed to fit any shape of the foot with flexible material and laces to secure the upper to the wearer’s foot.
The comfort level of the Dr. Sholl's Dakota is far above average with wearers reporting that they can wear them all day pain-free. Because of that, this model is a very strong value.
2. Marc Fisher Yale
Marc Fisher is a brand which speaks of timeless style, of clean, effortlessly chic looks which put a fresh spin on the classics. The Yale is a prime example of that, a design which we have seen before, but which - through the lens of Marc Fisher - looks new and reinvented. This pointy toe model comes with a metal detail at the front for some toughness, and it is polished enough to suit both casual and fancy occasions.
The Yale is made from leather for the upper, while the lining and the outsole are from man-made materials. There are elastic panels in the sides for stretchiness, and a pull tab in the back to make it easy for you to slide this baby on. Additionally, the heel height of the Yale is practically insignificant - almost 2 inches - meaning that you can wear it all day and all night if you so desire.
The metal tip of the design adds some interest to it and makes the Yale positively eye-catching. You will have a fun time mixing and matching this design with your favorite fall looks - try pairing it with a leather jacket for the ultimate rebel vibe, or with a long wool coat for winter chic style. There isn’t anything the Marc Fisher Yale can’t do!
