Ankle Boot Obsession

When I think about it logically, it doesn't make sense. Why do I want 4+ different pairs of black booties? All of them come just above or just below the ankle, they are all black, and they are all constructed out of leather or a faux-leather material. Yet, the details make them  all so different from each other that I feel like (if I had the money) it would be justifiable to buy them all. Am I officially classified as an insane "shopaholic" now?

The first pair of shoes I really like because of the height. These are the types of ankle boots that come below the ankle, and look super cool with shorts/skirts...basically with any ensemble where your legs are bare. Because they don't cut you off at the top of the ankle, they don't make your legs look shorter and stumpier like over-the-ankle booties sometimes tend to. The buckle detail on the side of these add just a little somethin' extra.

If you're an avid reader of my blog (which, I'm assuming you probably aren't...but if you are) then you will recognize this second pair from my How To Wear the Punk Trend (Without Looking Scary) post. I just can't get over how cool these are. With cutouts at the ankle and in the back by the heel, these are surely unique--but also classic and will go with everything. I also love the gold hardware because black & gold is one of my favorite combos. (Did the song "Black & Yellow" just pop into anyone else's head?)

The third pair of booties would also go with anything and everything. The stretchy fabric on the sides breaks up the leather, and the wooden heal makes these look more expensive than boots with rubber heals. I also really like the little doo-dad, for lack of a better word, that hangs out the top for some reason. Why? I'm not really sure...

And finally, the fourth pair combines two of my favorite aspects of black booties: cutouts, and the little doo-dad thingy at the back. If I got these boots I don't think I would ever take them off. I'd probably shower in them, sleep in them, maybe work out in them. I mean come on, how CUTE are they?!

So what's the verdict? Am I mentally crazy for wanting four different pairs of black ankle boots? Which are your favorites?
