Let’s talk shoes. It’s no secret to anyone who knows me that I have a serious
addiction problem love of shoes. Just ask my husband. Wait, maybe don’t do that. I honestly can’t remember a time in my life when I didn’t love shopping for new shoes, especially boots. I have a collection of riding boots, rain boots, cowboy boots, and the new kid on the block, “booties.” I adore them all but they all have one thing in common – they only go to the knee.
For a while I went back and forth. Do I dare venture above the knee? I remember seeing my first pair of over-the-knee boots when Julie Roberts strutted her stuff down Hollywood Boulevard in Pretty Woman. Given her occupation in the film, I always thought, yeah…not for me. But I have to say that over-the-knee boots seem to have come a long way from their pleathery 1980’s roots.
I’m skeptical of the longevity of fashion trends, so I was pretty excited to find this pair while out running errands one day. I can commit to over-the-knee boots when they’re under $90! Plus they just fit perfectly. I was looking for a versatile boot that would go with jeans, leggings, and my new favorite look – the sweater dress. I wore them all over Chicago and never once felt fatigued. I was actually a little under the weather that week so comfort was even more important than usual. They aren’t incredibly high and the stacked heel was perfect for lots of walking. I even wore them out to a nice dinner. They transition from day to night perfectly. I’m wearing grey faux suede but they also come in cognac and black.
