Would you wear tall boots during summer?
Jessica Biel would. The gorgeous 28-year-old actress was spotted in these pale grey knee high boots as she walked out of a building on May 1, 2010:
These tall boots may not look it at first glance, but these were actually designed specifically for the summer season.
Take a look at the heel: it’s a wedge covered in woven raffia, a material most appropriate for spring and summer. The shaft is made of unlined canvas, a cool, lightweight fabric that lets air circulate and skin breathe. The boot is in a slouch style which makes it look more laidback and relaxed, and lastly, it comes in warm-weather-friendly colors like pale grey, navy, and sand like in the picture above.
Even if these boots weren’t made for the spring and summer season, I would probably try to find a way to wear them every chance I get simply because they’re Louboutins. Who said fashion was practical?
Tall boots may be the last thing you’d want to wear during the warmer months, but you gotta agree that they look seriously high fashion. Take cue from Jessica Biel and wear them with tank tops and denim shorts and choose a light color to make them more appropriate for the weather. Now if only the outfit came with buff arms and toned thighs too…
Here are a couple of wedge boot alternatives I found to the $600 plus Christian Louboutin Jessica 100 Knee High Boots:
Donald J Pliner Quinn, $243.16 (was $395.00) – Although these are suede and not slouchy, these have the raffia wedge heels too
Naughty Monkey Steve’s Delight 2, $98.99 – These boots have canvas uppers and a stacked heel
