Thigh High / Over the Knee Boots
Browsing pictures for the Latex/Leather pants thread and having these confuse me, it just made me realise who big this trend just got for the Fall Winter 06.07 season. Is it the new must have boot?

And the biggest question: are these really comfortable and wearable? What would you wear them with? What is your take on this trend?

Thanks Curious.

I am personally not a huge fan of the Chanel RTW one as the fabric makes them look quite off... I am just wondering what kind of fabric they used for the couture show as it is really beautiful. Is it some sort of really stiff/think dark denim? I think these boots only work with really stiff fabrics or high gloss faux leather or matte faux leather.

I concur. I esp. think the denim ones are awful!

What are the Givenchy made of? Is that real or faux? 'cause they're gorgeous
So if they're real, I'd say they're pretty sweet in leather too.


For someone other than me of course

I love high boots to death, but they are hell to pull on and off, and not for this weather. Also, how do you sit or bend your knees with such a pair of thigh-high leather boots? My preferred material is patent leather or a very soft calf or silk, worn with short one-piece rompers. Heels shouldn't be too high or sharp though, it might end up with a fetish vibe...not nice!

Watching these pics, I think it's gorgeous.

But will it still be gorgeous (and well combined with other clothes) when the 'normal' people on the street are going to wear it...

i love the idea of thigh high boots but i could never wear them I saw some in the shop today and just thought of the boots Julia Roberts wore in Pretty Woman even though the ones I saw looked nothing like them! Bad connotations stop me from wearing this trend!

Very true, I share the same "fear". It needs to be very sleek and understated. I like the styling at the Givenchy Couture show, it's a bit dark and severe and that works very well with the boots.

I don't like them... it's very easy to fall in vulgar with them, tey are hard to match IMO
