All fall and winter I had been on a mission to find the perfect ankle boot. Specifically, one that had a block heel. Not too high or low. In a solid black. With clean lines – I didn’t want anything that looked like a cowboy style boot. Or had buckles or other details. I didn’t want one that was too dressy either (I have a black leather ankle boot for such occasions).
Enter the Sam Edelman Macon Ankle Boot. LOVE this ankle bootie! It is exactly what I’ve been searching for and the one that I’ve been grabbing the most often ever since. I picked it up at QVC.com – which btw, these booties are currently on a clearance price! I’ve been able to style these booties with jeans (cropped, skinny, etc.), leggings, and dresses. It runs TTS, so stick with your normal ankle boot sizing.
Let’s talk details! These black ankle boots are suede and have a side zip for easy entry. The block heel height is close to three inches. It has a double E emblem on the heel, as well as on the zipper pull. Simple details that just add additional style. Don’t be alarmed when you get them home and you see, what I would call distressing, at the toe. Initially I was like OMG, did I receive used shoes?! No, no, no. It is beautifully burnished on the toe to give it a bit of interest and style.
When it comes to wearing these ankle booties, I’ve found the easiest bottom to wear with them is a skinny jean. I feel like this combination is one that always looks good. A pair of skinnies, turtleneck and blazer make a chic outfit option that pairs excellently with these suede ankle boots.
Opting for an ankle length (cropped) or cuffed jean is another fun and stylish way to show off these amazing ankle booties!
I don’t wear bootcut a ton, but when I do I always grab my Express barely bootcut jeans. They work very well with these ankle booties for a chic weekend look.
A black suede almond toe bootie just seems to add a touch of style when paired with a casual dress. I’ve layered on a fitted turtleneck and added fleece-lined tights to pull the look together.
If you decide to buy these Sam Edelman Macon booties, I think you’ll be pleased. They’re comfortable, stylish and a go-to bootie all season long.
Thanks for stopping by! See you next time! XO ~ Michelle
