Top Picks for Flat, Wedge and High-Heeled Over-The-Knee Boots

November 25, 2009 • By Erika

In line with last week’s over-the-knee boots blog post, this week, we’ve put together some of the best over-the-knee or thigh high boots for this coming winter season.

Flat Over-The-Knee Boots

Flat boots are the easiest to pull off when you dare to venture in over-the-knee shoe styles. They are obviously the easiest to walk in but remember to pick one aren’t totally flat and still has arch support.

Flat Over-The-Knee Boots

1. Chinese Laundry Turbo, $98.95. These boots first became popular when Blake Lively’s character Serena van der Woodsen on Gossip Girl wore them. These have an elastic band in the back so you can easily tuck your jeans in.

2. Calvin Klein Mayson, $219.95. Go for these boots if you want the “so tight they look like leggings” look ala Anne Hathaway in The Devil Wears Prada. The elastic around the thigh ensures no-fall and no-slouch.

3. Type Z Riderz Wide Calf, $108.60 (on sale!). Girls with large calves will love this half leather half elastic boot. The brown and black tone-on-tone combinations are exquisite.

4. Pour La Victoire Victorina, $504.  An over-the-knee motorcyle boot, ’nuff said.

Wedge Over-The-Knee Boots

A wedge gives that much needed height without the discomfort. A nice wedge heel on an over-the-knee boot makes a taller and slimmer line.

Wedge Over-The-Knee Boots

1. Stuart Weitzman Topup, $595. Gorgeous brown color combined with the gold zipper and platform.

2. Boutique 9 Fortunato, $329. Nice stacked heel and tassel accent around the leg opening. The slouch around the leg is well-placed – if it were any lower, it would’ve made the wearer’s ankles look huge.

High-Heeled Over-The-Knee Boots

Tread lightly in the high-heeled department! Stay away from the shiny patent leather and choose a thicker heel over a skinny stiletto.

High-Heeled Over-The-Knee Boots

1. Nine West Iunia3, $138.95. This is actually made of pleather but it’s not shiny. The shoe itself looks like a regular high-heeled pump with a shaft attached to it.

2. Two Lips Kinky, $169.95. These are also available in gray and they are just as covetable.

3. Dolce Vita Marilyn, $367. Were these boots named after Marilyn Monroe or Marilyn Manson? Either way, this bondage-themed over-the-knee boot is hot. The sky-high heel is offset by the thick straps and tough-looking buckles.
