Nina Dobrev Lands at LAX in Cole Haan Air Whitley Tall Boots

February 28, 2012 • By Erika

Nina Dobrev was seen arriving at the LAX airport after flying in from Atlanta last Friday.

She hid her face from the paparazzi, but she was still easy to recognize in a chic yet comfy travel outfit consisting of a black shirt, a black leather jacket, and dark blue jeggings, accessorized with a light brown fedora, a blue chain-strap crossbody bag, and black paneled knee-high boots.

At first, I thought Nina Dobrev’s boots were the Stuart Weitzman 50/50s, but these boots don’t go over the knee and their back panels don’t go all the way down to cover the heel.

Nina Dobrev’s boots are actually the Cole Haan Air Whitley tall boots. The back panels are made of suede instead of elastic fabric, but they still have a lot of stretch, allowing them to fit narrow to wide calves. The stretch also allows these boots to fit smoothly over socks, leggings, and even heavy denim jeans; these should be easy to pull on and off despite the lack of zipper closures.

Cole Haan Air Whitley Tall Boots, $131.99 to $249.95 (before: $328.00)

I would recommend these boots as great look-for-less options to the Stuart Weitzman 50/50s; still, they are great boots on their own. Apparently, lots of people know it, too, because these are nearly sold out everywhere!

Don’t worry though because you can still find a few of the smaller sizes of these boots at 6pm, which lists a pair at $131.99. You can also shop the most sizes of the black color of the boots at Cole Haan.
