Thanks for the thread.

i really like the chanel RTW one's in black, with a patent toe.

I can't really see this go totally mainstream.. which i guess is a good thing- it's easy for the proportions to look "off" imo.

Very sexy but not something I'd be able to pull off.

Not quite that high..but still quite high nontheless..

Versace A/W 06.07

with a heel, over-the-knee boots seem very "pretty woman" to me. too much heel, too much boot, just too much.

but i think a well-made flat otk boot can be totally gorgeous... i have been hunting for a pair for myself forever... i love the idea of the boot disappearing underneath a knee-length skirt or a sweater dress or lots of layers (but nothing too long)...

in my opinion, it's when you show skin/stocking between the superhigh boots and the skirt when you run into problems

Yes, it mustn't be the type of cliche thigh-highs you see stalking the dark streets... A bit serious, and also, I'd like an "ugly" lower heel or round toes instead of the sharp toes and stilhettoes. I wear mine with poof shorts or a big bubble coat, nothing too sexy. I'm still deadly afraid that the soft patent leather will crack soon where they wrinkle at the knee and ankle..., and yes, what great suffering to wear, but what an impact.

I really like this trend..as long as we're not getting into the fetish patent leather boot look..I think suede boots look classy..like the Manolo's

This looks so good on superthin girls! I want some boots that ends above the knee, but not thigh high.

I'd probably get a pair, but i'll wait until they're available in "bon-marché" stores like Aldo. Those Manolo ones must cost an arm and a legggg.

I like these, but only those that go just over the knee, and which you can also fold down. And I think they should be with low or no heels.
I have black suede ones from several years back, started using them last year again.

I just bought these brown ones from APair.

Not everybody can wear this trend, but Chanel made them look spectacular.

Thigh-high boots can also pass off as leather leggings as well, in a way.
The easiest/obvious way I can think of to wear them would be to treat them like leggings - in a way it's all about showing the boots off right?
Nothing wrong with having a heel, as long as it is not stiletto - now that would be hard to pull off, imo.
