The Best OTK Boots

Oh hey there, have I shared these over the knee boots with you yet? No?! What have I even been doing with my time? I bought these boots back at the beginning of February and have been wearing them all over the place. I haven't actually tried that $800 pair of OTK boots, but I'd wager that without trying them these are the best, and here's why:

  1. They're super stretchy and stay in place! No droopy ankles, no sliding knees, and the perfect, flattering fit. Seriously, the stretch on these is so good that people usually have to do a double-take when I wear them with a skirt, because they look like really thick tights or knee socks at first glance.
  2. The fabric isn't actual suede but microsuede, which means it's way more durable than regular suede. With real suede boots I usually freak out and refuse to wear them if there's even the hint of a puddle outside or if there's any chance of someone dripping a liquid on me, but not with these! I actually wore this outfit to my birthday party last month and assume I got spilled on multiple times, and these still look good as new.
  3. They're really comfortable! I can wear them all day with no problem. The inside insole is just the tiniest bit slippery though, so I have been pairing them with yoga/barre socks so I don't slip around.
  4. They're super warm. I wore them on a thirty degree day this week sans pants and my legs were perfectly warm. Like, warmer than if I were wearing tights. Except for those two inches of skin that were showing and scandalizing my mother.
  5. They're long enough for my super long legs! I've tried on tons of pairs of "over the knee" boots that barely make it over my knees. Not cute. These have a shaft height of over 23 inches, which means they come way over my knees. For reference, if I want pants to be full-length I wear a 35" inseam.
  6. They aren't $800, so I can wear them without worrying. See item #2. If I had $800 boots I would literally never wear them because I would be too nervous about ruining them. Also, I would never spend $800 on boots. I get heart palpitations just thinking about it. 

So that's enough waxing poetic about a pair of boots, I guess ;) Are you a fan of OTK? Would you give them a try?
