If boots are made for walking, they’re certainly made for styling with each and every step. Boots are both practical and fashionable footwear that generally covers the foot and ankle, and some the lower calves, knees and thighs. Boots clear up your thighs? Oh my!
Most boots have a heel that is clearly distinguishable from the rest of the sole, even if the two are made from one piece. Many boots are made from leather, patent leather or rubber, but can be made from a variety of materials. Although boots such as work boots and construction boots are designed for practical reasons, most boots worn today are for fashion and style. Hence, may I introduce you to rocking knee high, thigh high and slouch boots? Righteous!
Slouch boots look anything but slouchy!
Slouch boots get their name because the leg of the boot fits loose and rippled, as opposed to tight or straight up and down.
Early boots consisted of separate leggings, soles and uppers worn together to provide greater ankle protection than shoes or sandals. Around 1000 BC, these components were more permanently joined to form a single unit that covered the foot and lower leg, often up to the knee. Step in fashion and aesthetic design and boots that went over the knee and up the thigh became high on the priority list. Knee high, thigh high and slouch boots, when worn with dresses and skirts, take your outfit to off the chart levels that are sky high!

Boots Fun Fact: The early Dutch Masters were the first to define the boot in European iconography, in spite of the fact that the Chinese had been using footwear that the Frenchman or Portuguese sailor of the day would have recognized as a boot for centuries at that time. Historians agree that the first codified definition of the boot was entered into law by Royal decree during the Hundred Years’ War, noted by the Duke of Wales. European boots were influenced by military styles, featuring thick soles and turnover tops that were originally designed to protect horse mounted soldiers.
Today, boots of all types are worn for all occasions!
