This whole obsession started last year when I was at the MO Outlet and they had branded calf-high boots for sale. They were odd sizes (either for the large footed or for cinderella size feet) but they were so cheap! I’d have forced myself into one if I could, and I did. Well, I didn’t have to force. I actually found one that fit me.
It fit me at the foot and ankle, but sadly, did not fit me at the calf. Apparently, contrary to what I think, my calves were not large enough and there was a gap between the boot and my skin. So, on that one odd note, I reluctantly put the boots aside. I mean, we are talking only RM290 for branded leather knee high boots! Was I crazy for putting them back? YES!!
The next question of course is, where on earth am I going to be wearing these calf/knee high boots in our hot Malaysian weather? My feet would melt in them. Or so I thought.
However, lately I’ve been wearing boots (just past my ankle high ones only) with pants to work, as all my pumps committed mass suicide. I don’t understand why but many heels dropped off so I was left looking at my boots which I’d hardly worn. They are by Clarks and possibly one of the most (if not the most!) comfortable shoes I own! There is a 1.5″ to 2″ heel on them and I can RUN in them to catch a bus (but I don’t do buses lol!) I could walk all day in them.
That’s when I realised that my feet don’t melt in boots! I wear socks or stockings, but even then, I can survive! The thing about ankle high boots is that they look odd if you wear a skirt. It looks like its not quite all there. On the other hand, I think calf/knee high boots are so sexy! Yes, slutty too, possibly, but sexy nonetheless!
I’d love to wear them like these 2 pictures I found. Take note of the one with the skirt. Damn! I want!
Ok, so I’ve made a pact with my fellow boot-lover that if I see anymore calf/knee high boots that are comfortable, we’ll be getting one each (don’t you chicken out on me now!) She could possibly wear it in the more reasonable weather of England, and I couldn’t, but who cares really eh?
These boots are made for walking, and that’s just what they’ll do…
