Is there anything better than a sleek pair of over-the-knee boots for fall? They really are hard to beat. In the dependability department, Stuart Weitzman gets an A+. I picked up my first pair of over-the-knee boots from Stuart Weitzman over six years ago – this was when he introduced the 50/50 style that saw a surge in popularity a couple of years back. Are you surprised I still own them today?

After six years they’ve gone through a lot. I definitely didn’t take care of my shoes back then as well as I do now, so after a few visits to Deno’s for repairs and refinement, it was time for me to invest in a new pair. Since my last pair held up so well over the years, the only place I wanted to look to replace them was Stuart Weitzman. While I loved the new Lowland style he came out with last year, I just couldn’t convince myself to buy a pair in suede (which is the only material they were sold in initially). This fall he introduced the Lowland in leather, which was an easy sell.

Since I’ve been over in London, I’ve avoided all things suede – there’s just no point buying something I wouldn’t be able to wear if it rains. I also feel like suede tends to get dirty more easily and doesn’t last as long as leather. Therefore I opted for this pair. Best. Choice. Ever. They are super comfortable just like the 50/50’s, but have a slightly more rounded toe and polished look for a more feminine appeal.

If you saw Monday’s post, you’ll know these boots also look amazing with dresses and tights. They are such a simple, sleek alternative to flats for fall and will last long after the season is over. If I take good care of these I see no reason whey they couldn’t last even longer than my last pair of OTK boots! If you’re in the need for a heeled over-the-knee boot, check out the Highland in leather. Gorgeous!
