The Boot That Promises Height, And Delivers

The fall season brings on the anticipation of cool crisp air, fallen
leaves and the extreme excitement of entering into the most fashionable
of seasons. My favorite aspect of fall is usually the emphasis on
footwear. And in this season in particular, I’m ecstatic that extra attention has been given to the over-the-knee boot.

One of my constant complaints about the knee-high boot is not that
it’s unfashionable or that it doesn’t possess that type of feminine
power and prowess I so love to flaunt – it’s that it just never actually comes up to my knee.

The knee-high boot on most women 5’6” and over should actually be
termed, “above-the-calf” boot. Not that there’s anything wrong with
that height. However the truth of the matter is that the over-the-knee boot actually goes over the knee!

For instance, the calf-boot usually only hits mid-calf or lower. The
bootie most times extends over the ankle. And the knee-high boot just
can’t quite reach the knee. Some of my favorite boots are at times misstated in title. Yet this is the first boot style to be 100% constant in the promise of its height. Now that is what I call dependability.
