Over-the-Knee Boots II (Every Color but Black)

opening boots II

You already HAVE black boots, probably several pair. It’s time for something distinctly fashionable or sportier or perhaps frivolous. And if you’re going to do it, then commit-i.e. go high.

Sort of Beige

Left: Pretaport from Nine West Vintage America- Olivia is a Ralph Lauren kind of girl- she likes a bit of western mixed with urban style. The luxe, light color of these will suit her perfectly. Black, she feels, should be saved for evening. Round toe, fringed boot with side zipper fastening. Suede upper. ¾” heel. $199.00

Right: Distressed Lace-Back Boot- Patricia mixes vintage with contemporary clothes and wears a lot of menswear looks. These will coordinate with her blazers, vests, and big sweaters. This year, she even found a shirt with detachable collar-very cool. And they’re politically correct vegan leather! Buckle strap and lace up back for distinction. Round toe. Inner zipper. Outsole with 1.25” rubber heel. (An extra pair) $45.50

Sam Edelman Flat Moto Boots

Rachel mixes pragmatism with fashion. She has a house upstate and wanted boots in which she could head for the woods as well as run errands. Styled for the long haul. Leather upper, synthetic lining, synthetic sole. Multiple buckle detail at the back. Side zipper fastening. They call this color whiskey – also in black. $300.00

Studio Pollini Boots from Yoox

Samantha loves color-you should see her apartment. This year especially when so much is wrong with the world, she feels it brightens and decorates. Imagine these with a yellow cashmere scarf and/or Kelly green handbag! Smiles all around. High, high suede boots in the most gorgeous blue color. Inner zipper closure, narrow toe, lined interior, leather sole, flat heel. $448.00


Left: Rebecca Minkoff Boston Suede Boots- Tracey worked hard for her position. She’s finally taken seriously but never wants the power to hide the fact she’s also a woman and so wears skirts and dresses much of the time. He’s attracted to the nuanced color of these, the graceful silhouette, and the sturdy heel. Buttery suede, stacked 3” heel. Suede upper, leather lining and sole. Padded insole. Pull on style. $495.00

Right: Guess Vale Platform Dress Boots- Valerie is an adventurous dresser. She’s drawn to exaggeration. Proportions interest her at the moment. She imagines these with leggings and a cropped jacket or a short skirt and tights. Uber-high boots were at the top of her list this fall. (She’s petite) Leather upper, manmade sole. Almond toe, buckle detail around the ankle and at the top of the shaft. Inside zipper fastening with gore detail mid shaft. $239.00

Wowza Boots

Just for the fun of it: Wendy trots these out when she’s feeling playful or hot. She knows they’re over the top. Sometimes she pairs them with black leggings or a little sweater dress as if normal street wear. She’s worn them to gallery openings and a party or two as well as-of course- on Valentine’s Day. Pull-on, red leather thigh-high stilettos – 5” heels with pointed toe and laced back. $138.95
