Whether you’re wearing a boot, giving someone ‘the boot’, or unclamping a boot from your car wheel, make no bones about it, the boot is a popular item! In the realm of fashion and style, a sure fire way to boot up your closet with an ideal fashion boost is by adding a knock-out, gorgeous, sensual pair of thigh high boots!
A boot is a type of footwear and a specific type of shoe. Most boots mainly cover the foot and the ankle, while some also cover some part of the lower calf, the knee and on up the thigh. I’ve even seen some over-the-top boots that extend up the hip. How hip is that boot?
Ah, the eye turning, eye catching, eye popping boot wonder that is known as the thigh high boot!
Thigh high boots, known also as thigh length boots or simply thigh boots, are boots that extend above the knee to at least mid-thigh. Other terms for this stunning footwear include over-the-knee boots, and especially when cuffed, pirate boots. Lengths vary from reaching just over the knee to reaching almost to the crotch (referred to as crotch boots or crotch high boots).
Thigh High Boots Fun Fact: Thigh high boots are made of materials ranging from various leathers to various synthetic materials (including vinyl, polyurethane or latex), to various fabrics such as silk or polyester microfiber. Many are constructed with zippers, but some are designed as pull on boots. Heel heights vary, but most styles are with heels greater than 3 inches (7.5cm). Heel styles vary from metal spikes to chunky or platform soles.
There is no other footwear on the fashion market as daring, bold, beautiful and provocative as a stiletto heeled thigh high boot!
Does the va va voom vixen in you silently wish to wear thigh high boots, but you’re too meek to show them off? Make this the year of giving in to the true fashion diva that you are, no matter anyone’s opinion, no matter if you’re walking or riding in a car!
Thigh High Boot Fun Fact: Laced leather boots were fashionable for women throughout the Victorian period. In the world of women’s fashion, thigh high boots run through cycles of both popularity and design. As referenced by many authors, the popularity of the motion picture Pretty Woman hurt the credibility of thigh high boots being worn as wardrobe staples. Nevertheless, in any fall fashion season, at least one or more designers and retailers will take a chance on the thigh high boot’s magnetic appeal and showcase the vixen thigh high boot.

Boot Fun Fact: 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 feet and lower leg, often up to the knee. A type of soft leather ankle boots were worn by nomads in eastern Asia and carried to China, India and Russia around AD 1200 to 1500 by Mongol invaders.
And, as with all fashion, the practicality of the boot went out the window and the aesthetic pleasure and allure of the boot stepped in, in the fantastic, fabulous form of the thigh high boot! A sexy, sensual boot that looks and fits just right!
