We’re Giving Our Boot Collection a Twist With These Braided Ankle Booties

We’re constantly on the hunt for ankle booties with a unique design to update our fall shoe collection! The classic sleek leather and suede designs always catch our eye, but we love it when our favorite go-to shoe styles have a different detail that help Us keep our wardrobe fresh and fun.

The Shop With Us team has spotted a pair of ankle booties that we plan on adding to our wardrobes immediately. The Caslon Liam Braided Booties put a literal twist on our typical ankle boot pick thanks to an interwoven, braided design along the ankle!

The Caslon booties have a 1.5″ heel, a convenient back zip closure for easy slipping on and off, a genuine suede upper portion and a soft lining with a rubber sole. A braided design gives the booties a boho chic appeal that we cannot wait to play with all fall and winter long. Open slots due to the intricate weaving make these shoes a pick that we can wear any season. They are great for pairing with stylish socks or stockings in the fall and without them in the spring and summer.

Shoppers who purchased these shoes raved most about how comfortable they are. People also love the look and the softness of the suede material. Reviewers mentioned that they wore the booties with wardrobe pieces like pants, skirts, skinny jeans and jeggings. Popular colors ordered according to reviews are cognac and pink. Shoppers did note that the shoes run small, although Nordstrom labeled them as running “true to size.” It is important to carefully eye the size guide and order a half size up if necessary.

Sizes range from 4 to 13 with half sizes up to 10.5! The booties are also available in four colors, including black, cognac, light pink and navy.

This black version is a great pick for fashionistas who prefer to balance unique silhouettes with a neutral color to avoid a shoe appearing too “busy.”

We can wear our black booties with long-sleeve maxi dresses topped by a fringe faux suede jacket. These cute boots can also also be worn with skinny jeans and a chunky knit sweater. To keep the faux suede love going, accessorizing with a fab faux suede bag would make for a subtle, yet stylish touch.

The pink option is perfect for pairing with a cream sweater dress and a faux fur bag to make the shoes and accessories the highlight of the look.



However, our favorite color option that this shoe comes in is this navy blue (below)! These navy shoes are a great selection for anyone who owns enough black and tan ankle booties, but still prefers to go dark with their footwear collection for fall.

Although only a single size is left in this color on the Nordstrom website, the Shop With Us team used our legendary style hunting skills and spotted them heavily stocked at Nordstrom Rack. Score!

We will be pairing these navy booties with skinny jeans, a simple white sweater and the navy blue Rachel Roy trench coat with the built-in hoodie that we found a few weeks back! The braided design of this bootie will totally add a dressier element to the athleisure-inspired trench.

Shoppers who love the idea of a braided detail, but prefer a design that leans away from the bohemian style, may like the David Tate Doran Booties. They have the look of a classic black leather ankle boot in the front with a slight split at the shaft.

Along the ankle there is a single twisted leather strand that gives the boots a subtle, yet unique flair. Check it out at a different angle down below.
