We love creatively designed footwear. Whether they be heels, flats, boots, or anything in between. Take for example today's Shoeography Shoe of the Day, the Baldinini Trend Ankle Boots. These androgynous women's boots are wonderfully crafted to get and keep the attention on you. They will elicit conversation and looks of approval and envy.

The edgy boot perfectly celebrates the very hot, ankle-hugging "sock boot" trend, thanks to it's black brushed calfskin and black scuba fabric upper. Other cool design details of this edgy boot include a wide elastic band across the foot that brings to mind the discretion and sophistication of all black; a mirrored metal tip plays up a light and shadow effect; and a 1 1/2" platform with a serrated rubber sole that celebrates the rocker and futuristic vibe of this women's boot.
