I love boots. But then again, what girl doesn’t? I’m tired of purchasing boots though because of the added element of boot circumference; I never know what’s going to fit me well. It’s all thanks to years of strength training my legs from running track in school; the calves bulked up and decided to never go down. I have a couple pairs of boots but nothing that comfortable or cute. I saw some rave reviews of the Nine West Destry boots and how their comfort factor is “insane,” so I decided to give it a shot.
At first I didn’t even realize these were over the knee boots. But then when I realized, I questioned whether I could really pull it off; then I realized you can also wear these cuffed so that they’re not over the knee. These are just classic black boots that I think can look super cute (and match absolutely everything), but are also very comfortable because there’s a 1/2″ platform on a 3″ heel.
Had to take more pictures with my new J.Crew Schoolboy Blazer because I know my last set of pictures were pretty crappy. Anyway, left picture shows cuffed, right picture is full on over the knee. Not a huge difference. My friend commented that they look abnormally tall and therefore very weird, but I think that’s the way OTK boots are supposed to look, no? I’m liking the coverage of my entire lower leg – will keep me warm during those cold days too! Sweet. Here are side shots:
Again, left picture shows cuffed, right picture is over the knee. I love the fact that these don’t look at all like they’re low-heel boots, but they feel like frickin’ flats. I swear. The platform in the front does wonders. All in all, I’m totally in love with these boots. They fit me perfectly, they’ll keep me warm, and they look super hot but are incredibly comfortable. I’m surprised they’re not already sold out, but maybe they’re new. I’d grab a pair asap (unless you have skinny legs…in which case these may not be for you).
