I have finally decided to jump on the “over-the-knee boots” bandwagon. I have tried a few pairs and I wish I was a little more organized so I could write a decent review but I did not take any pics. I have tried on Steve Madden Gorgeous, Stuart Weitzman, Chinese Laundry Bachelorette and Ivanka Trump Serena.
Fit and look
Stuart Weitzman fit and look the best. They followed the shape of the leg in the most flattering way. I also like the fit of Ivanka Trump Serena because they have the inner zipper for a more fitting look. One of the main reasons I did not go with Ivanka Trump Serena is because of the shorter shaft. If you go with over-the- knee boots, the higher the shaft the better 🙂
It is hard to have an opinion because it is best tested. After 3 hours in the mall with the Steve Madden boots I could not wait to get home to take them off. I suspect I will have the same experience with any of these due to the height of the heel.
Material and Quality
Stuart Weitzman’s are the only boots with suede upper and the rest are with fabric upper. Steve Madden Gorgeous boots have a feel and look very close to Stuart Weitzman and some may be fooled :). Ivanka Trump and Chinese Laundry are made of thinner fabric which I did not like and I am afraid would stretch easier over time.
We all know how much SW boots cost and the rest are between $129-$149. I got mine directly from Steve Madden’s site and I used a coupon I found online ending at $119.
