the perfect pair
I have been in search of the perfect pair of over the knee boots for probably the last month and a half.
Truthfully, it all started after seeing the Formation World Tour for the second time. [The first time I was in too much awe of Queen Bey]. One of my favorite performances is her Baby Boy/Hold Up/ Countdown compilation featuring her custom made Balmain white bodysuit [casual], and, of course, accompanying over the knee grey suede boots. [Naturally, like any other crazed Bey stan, I watch the performances over and over again on YouTube. We can talk choreography another time.] Then the boots infiltrated my Instagram feed thanks to street style shots from the likes of Kylie Jenner and the gazillion fashion bloggers that I follow. I even started tagging friends in my favorite posts, and they started sending me links to boots they thought I would like [I know, I have great friends].
I wasn’t just looking for any otk boots. There were requirements. They needed to be comfortable. Translation-a heel less than four inches, and preferably chunky as opposed to skinny. I even spent an entire Friday afternoon, perusing Bloomingdales for the perfect pair and landed on a dream pair from Stuart Weitzman [emphasis on dream]. Maybe when student loans and rent are a thing of the past Mr. Weitzman and I can have a conversation.
Anyway, I landed on this pair based on a link a friend sent me [thanks, Tasia]. She’d sent me a link to Steve Madden boots on Revolve, but they were too high, so I took to Google for Steve Madden otk boots. That’s how I landed on this magical pair on macy’s.com.
I got them in the mail last week, and they fit perfectly [thanks to true fit]. They arrived just before a work trip to New York, but I couldn't wait a whole other week to wear them. So they too took the trip to New York. I tested them out along the cobblestone streets of the Meatpacking District. Risky? I know. But they held up. I give them a 10/10 hands down. At last, the search party is officially called off.
