G.H. Bass "Sophia" Leather High Heel Ankle Boots
Sometimes you just need a basic staple for your collection. You know, kind of like grabbing a bunch of different colored shirts to wear to work that you like or a few of your favorite jeans in the wash that you like best. Bass delivers that perfect staple for your boot collection with their “Sophia” ankle boot. Made from sleek leather, you’ll find very subtle stitching along the upper. Pull tabs on either side of the opening help to ensure that you can slip these off-and-on easily. A padded insole rests along the footbed to keep you comfortable in your stride. You may be a little wary about a higher heel but the block-like design helps keep you from feeling too off balance. Pair these with your favorite skinny jeans for a slick, modern look!
