These Lucky Brand ankle boots go with any fall travel outfit – and they’re on sale now

“Lucky makes shoes too?” That’s usually the answer I get when people – including strangers on the street – ask me where I got my slippers. Like them, I also thought that Lucky Brand only made clothes. But a few months ago, while shopping for comfortable boots online that I could travel with, I came across the Lucky Brand Basel Bootie.


Technically, I haven’t discovered these little leather ankle boots, because they already have a pretty big following. In fact, they have nearly 7,500 perfect 5-star ratings on Amazon and thousands of reviews at other top retailers like Zappos, DSW, and Nordstrom. Plus, according to Star Style, Natalie Portman has a pair. Last year, she was photographed wearing them with a twill dress on the set of ‘Thor: Love and Thunder.’


But I didn’t buy these slippers just because an A-lister rocks them. And I didn’t buy them because I was lured in by the $85 sale price (which, for 100% leather boots, is beyond reasonable). Some colors are even on sale at DSW for as little as $40. But I bought them because I loved the way they looked. I kept them because I’m a fan of their cut.

While some reviews say they run small, I find my boots to be true to size. They fit perfectly, both lengthwise and widthwise. I even wear mine with thicker socks (I love Lasso’s low tab compression socks). At 1.2 inches tall, the block heel is just enough to give me the extra height I want without making it difficult to walk. In other words, my legs look elongated, not wobbly.


Perhaps the best part about these leather ankle boots is the fact that I didn’t have to spend time breaking them. Normally when I wear new boots or shoes I can count on a blister or two before my feet start to feel at home. their. That’s why I always have bandages on hand. However, my feet felt like they belonged in these slippers from the second I put them on. In fact, I was convinced that I could walk for hours with them if I wanted to.

Last week I wore them with a white dress to the grand opening party of Club Med Magna Marbella in Spain. Paired with my favorite black leatherette leggings, they also help me cover some serious ground in Porto, Portugal. Even on the cobbled, hilly streets of the 900-year-old city, the boots feel sturdy and offer plenty of support. I haven’t twisted my ankle yet or even weakened (a miracle for me if I’m wearing heels on uneven surfaces).


I also like to wear them on the flight as they have zippers on both sides making them easy to put on and take off when I’m going through security overseas or want to change into slippers on the plane. I usually wear my favorite Lululemon joggers on flights, and when paired with these booties, the look is high enough to pass for casual work wear.


Since they’re available in so many colors and prints, these slippers go with just about anything. On Amazon alone, you have over 50 different options to choose from. I just went with the first color that spoke to me, caramel. But, if I had to buy another pair (and I’d happily pick up another), I’d probably opt for black or brindle suede. Yes, they also come in suede.


If I had to change anything about these ankle boots I would just say that I wish the toe was slightly more rounded. But that’s only because I have big feet (I inherited it from my dad who wears a size 13) and I think pointy toes make my feet look longer. Still, I’m certainly not complaining. Not a single person who complimented me on these slippers asked me what size I was. They always ask me where I got them, and I know that’s a good thing!


At the time of publication, the price was $85.
