Hi!! so, I’m alive…barely 😉 We’re moved in, but still unpacking and getting settled. Anyway, here are the results of the Reader Favorites: Tall Boots survey and comments below – leave another comment if you have anything to add!!
“Loeffler Randall Matilde tall boots – THE BEST! but IMO run a bit small, I suggest size up half size.
Tory Burch Rosalie Boot (seems to run a bit tall, I think for people on the shorter side, might hit the back of your knee when you sit)
Madewell archive boot (comes in extra wide calf I believe, so this can work for just about everyone)”
“I favor the prosaic and not the fashionable- need to walk comfortably for miles while touring cities in the fall or winter. Keen Silverton – fabulous! Size up 1/2 size. I got mine on clearance in a brown and despite having another pair of slouchy black Keen knee boots in black, I want the Silverton. I’m considering trying the Keen Delancey.”
“I’ve already mentioned, that I’m a Frye fan. My fave tall boots are their classic campus style. They’re kinda clunky, but work well with either jeans or leggings. They have a few variations. ”
“My favourite tall boots are the Dorina by La Canadienne, in black suede. They are the perfect heel height; very comfortable for walking and very chic. They go with everything: jeans, trousers, leggings, skirts, even harem pants. I got mine at a thrift store in Montreal for $10 but they are still available through the company’s website.
I have average sized calves but the Dorina have elasticized tops and a long zipper so someone with more muscular calves could probably be fine. They are made in Canada. They fit true to size.”
“The best: Fiorentini & Baker Emma. The back laces can be adjusted to accommodate layers ie pants/leggings/tights. They run quite large, so make sure to follow sizing advice if ordering online. So cool yet classic! I’ve had mine for 3 years and they truly improve with age.”
“I am not a cowgirl. I work in a conservative industry in a business formal office in a big city, and i wear these (Justin Arizona Boots) all the time. They are so comfortable an in my opinion they go with everything – and yes, I wear these dark brown boots with all black business clothes!”
Farha originally left the comment asking for a tall boots post – she is looking for something similar to this pair by Prada (but more affordable) and also likes the Camper Palmera boot if anyone has any other suggestions for her.
