Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Today's pick comes from Racked Chicago editor Jenny Berg.

A Moi H002 Boots, $345 at City Soles

When researching boots for my handy (er, footy?) fall shoe shopping guide, I came across this pair that stopped me in my tracks. Available exclusively at Chicago's City Soles (and online for all you non-Chicagoans) these luxe, peppy booties are handmade in Mexico from soft, supple leathers. They also have a hidden platform to give your legs a flattering lift.

And to give your spirit a lift, each pair has a pair of tied-on worry dolls meant to to fend off bad spirits and provide a safe passage through life. Heart and sole. I'm sold.
