These booties were made for walkin’...
...or dancing, or making love, and practically everything you want! Boots have been the footwear that is usually patronized because of their practicality over its looks. They were initially made for utility. It was either go for boots for convenience or go for heels for style. Now, you never have to choose between those two polar opposite footwear. At the end of the shoe spectrum, fashion and function meet to form a forever favorite: women’s heeled booties.
The Beautiful History of Heeled Boots
Centuries past, both high heels, and boots were separately serving different purposes as compared to how they are viewed today. Surprisingly, both had predominantly male market ages before there were red bottoms and Manolos. Heels were initially used as shoe reinforcements so that riding on horseback would be easier. The heels act as a barrier between the foot and the stirrups. Then cowboys and military men had an equally long history of wearing boots with an inch or two of heels so that they can steady themselves for riding and in warfare. There was nothing more with heels than a supplemental tool for a shoe while boots are worn more for their function rather than for their form. Now, who said those patent pumps weren’t practical? Men from previous centuries sure thought it otherwise!
It wasn’t long after that women have taken on a high appreciation of this type of shoe and since then, we have fully embraced heels as our own. As time passed, as heels got higher, and as styles got more feminine, a hybrid of heels and boots was created for the pleasure of women everywhere. We never have to choose between convenience and sexiness because we can now get the best of both worlds.

Basic Bootie Training
Walking your way towards your goals is a whole lot better when you have the right shoes. Especially when your goals involve dancing, poles or otherwise, it is way better when you are in full gear and that includes your footwear.
Walking in high heel booties are significantly easier to learn as compared to your regular stiletto shoes. The solid covering helps your feet stay in place, where it’s supposed to be!

Bootie heels are at the top of the ladder when it as a pole dancing tool. The right high heels can bring a new level of sexiness to your routine. It is not only a great way to make your pole dancing outfit scintillating, but it also provides grip and protection. Since booties have more material around the feet, the pole and other surfaces will have more material to cling on to, shielding your skin from bruises.
Here are some considerations you might want to take note if you are purchasing a bootie heel:
• Material – Humidity and clear plastic do not mix in the best way possible, especially if it is entirely enveloping your feet. So if you are expected to sweat a lot because of the temperature or the intensity of a pole workout, go for lightweight material or a cut that will give your feet room to breathe. Sticky material like patent or PVC will give a dancer control over her movements since it sticks to the pole rather than slides.
• Design – If you plan to take it for a night out then embellishments like buckles, belts, and zippers are not going to be a problem. It is a different story, however, when taken to pole dancing classes. It might cause friction and even cuts and bruises when grazed against metal poles.
