For years I’ve struggled to get a stylish and sexy pair of over the knee boots to fit my less-than-sparrow-like legs. It’s something I’ve always wanted; they’re so versatile and remain on point every AW season, year on year.
My trouble is, and I’m sure many of you plus size divas have the same issue, the lack of calf room. I’m a size 16, with very toned, shapely and muscular legs, so more often than not zip up boots just won’t fit. Now, I know that Evans and Simply Be have done knee boots for years, but I wanted something with that extra wow factor, the ultimate in boots- I wanted Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman, meets a cast member of Made in Chelsea! I wanted a pair of boots that ooze sex appeal, but on the right side of class!
After much searching, I found these from Simply Be… From their Catwalk Collection, made with genuine leather uppers, these appeared to be perfect.
And they are!
I got them for £65, down from £90, and I feel that this is exceptional for the quality, versatility and the look I wanted.
They have an inside zip which creates the space to pull the boots on. The back zip provides extra room for the tops of the calf (if needed), and there’s a strap which brings everything together nicely. The decorative buckles add interest to the boots without making them look too much like something Jack Sparrow would wear! The sections which go over the knees can be folded down, giving the boots a knee length look, in addition to the thigh high look.
The two inch heel gives me that lift that allows me to feel more dressed up. These boots are far from skyscraper heels, but they’re a nice change from flat boots- the heel adds a feminine shape to the boots, to your legs and to your derrière! What more could a girl want?
These boots will take me from work to the bar, from day to night, and from autumn to winter. They are already becoming a staple in my wardrobe. Well done to Simply Be for designing something of such high quality, comfort and style.
I couldn’t recommend these boots highly enough. Get them whilst they’re still on sale! You deserve that treat.
