We find the word “shootie” (a combination shoe-bootie) deplorable. Can we stop with the made-up names, already? But the footwear itself is pretty cute. Like Tsubo’s Hepti heels, which have an understated design and come in this unexpected color pairing. Seriously, how often do you see a shoe in olive gray that’s lined in pale neon green? The supple suede is highlighted by curved ribbing along the back and heel, but no element of the shoe outshines the others. The Hepti is a complete package that gets attention without having to scream, “Look at me!” We’ll wear them with long, fluid pants in a coordinating tweed or with tights in a similar olive green and a dress or skirt.
