The High/Low: Shearling Booties

Who says winter footwear needs to be practical?

Uggs are like grandma panties. They're comfy and familiar, but sexy they are not. Enter these shearling booties. Although they might not keep your little piggies warm during the winter blizzards, they'll definitely turn up your hot quotient a thousand degrees. Get the high- and low-down on these two options:

High: The Shearling Trim Faithful Boot from Alexander McQueen mixes a bunch of the seasonal trends perfectly. Hitting just at the ankle, the peep-toe footwear features the late designer's signature skull zipper, furry details and a hefty price tag ($1,245 at Alexander McQueen).

Low: Snag the same ski bunny style with this less expensive version from Aldo. The Ratkovich booties have a slightly tougher edge with buckle straps and a lug sole, but keep the cozy shearling lining and sky-high heel of the McQueen shoes ($120 at Aldo).

Are peep-toe booties sexy or silly? Chime in now!
