If you are going to say good-bye to summer, then you are supposed to greet the fall in the prettiest way possible. With this cozy and inspirational season just around the corner, I bet you are actively digging your closet, recalling last fall’s trendy looks of yours and planning to supplement them with new fashionable ones. You will definitely announce about the lack of several garments in your closet without which you might not be able to create stunning looks in the upcoming fall. No wonder, we are excited to inform you about the comeback of the so challenging over-the-knee boots this fall, which are certain to find their place on a shelf in your shoe closet.
It is worth taking a retrospective look at the process of over-the-knee boots becoming so widely used by fashion fans. Original OTK boots were far from being pieces of fashion. It was in the 15th century that men began using them on horseback as a protection means. Later in the 16th and 17th centuries they became popular among warriors as a piece of amour. And it was only in the early 20th century that OTK boots were first used by women but not as a piece of fashion, but as a look of the principal boy role in the pantomime theatre. In 1962 the fashion world could finally see the boots in Balenciaga’s fall collection, which was later followed by Yves Saint Laurent’s couture lineup. Since then, over-the-knee boots have been sought-after footwear options among ladies.
