J Crew sure was delayed on shipping over the last few weeks, weren’t they? I ordered these booties during the Factory Early Access and they didn’t arrive until last Friday. Still within the 6-8 “working” day timeline but not to my expectations or normal shipping patterns. I didn’t even receive a “shipped” confirmation email until last Wednesday. There wasn’t a hurry to receive the order as it was all Fall and Winter items but communication from J Crew is lacking when there are issues like this.
…On to the review.
I love the Olive color on these! It is true to the online image. It’s going to be great for Fall. My normal size 7 fit very well, especially with socks. Though the shape of the bootie is somewhat western, there are no additional seams or stitching on it to make it look that way. The Quinn Ankle Boots
from last year had that look. It didn’t stop me from wearing them all the time though.
The heel is extremely manageable to walk in measuring at 2 inches in the back.
The shaft is shorter as well hitting just above my ankle bone. They are great to show off all those cute little socks!
And here are some fun sock for your booties!
I bought these during the Early Access where I was also able to use one of my Gilt City coupons. I’ve seen the price vary every few days so keep an eye on them. Also, the Quinn’s didn’t sell out right away so you might be able to get them when they go to sale/clearance.
