I think I've done it: I've found THE best classic knee-high black boots. With a perfect heel and slight platform sole. That are beautifully comfortable. In a great quality leather. That don't gape at the top like wellies. I'm in black boots heaven!
These Bellissimo boots from Pavers are my new, go-to boots to wear with everything this winter - for all those reasons and more. I didn't think it was possible to find boots that fitted my calves so well as I've tried so many pairs over the years. Usually I can't get them done up over my jeans (they're often made for much slimmer calves) or they are wider and fit my calves but then gape at the top. The best design feature of these boots is the little short zip at the top that allows you the room to get them done up over your calf before zipping the top up neatly... End result: no gaping! If, like me, you have calves that are often just a tiny bit too big for most knee-high boots then take a look at these ones, you may find they're perfect for you too. The icing on the cake? The price is currently a very reasonable £89.99.
For my first outing with the boots I wore them with my grey striped blazer (worn a few weeks ago in this post), the winter essential that is the black fedora plus my new plaid rucksack from Asos. I haven't owned a rucksack since I left school in 1990... not something I thought I'd ever own again to be honest! In those days, however, they were made of nasty nylon and in garish colours, not lovely soft brushed cotton like this one. I'm loving the subtly rich colours of this outfit - with the boots it's a win win all round I reckon.
Have you ever been on the hunt for the perfect pair of boots? Do you generally find it easy or difficult to get them to fit you... and have you found THE pair like me? Do share in the comments!
