The boot dilemma: OTK boots

The boot dilemma: OTK boots

The sun is starting to set here at 4pm which has made it impossible to take pictures without any decent light. As it leaves much more time for internet surfing, I have been obsessively looking for a perfect pair of over the knee (OTK) boots. While browsing through the Givenchy's spring/summer 09 collection, their OTK boots made my hunger grow.


Ebay has some vintage pairs to offer but majority of the time the prices get a bit too high or the size is not right. I almost jumped from my seat when my lovely boyfriend linked me these OTK boots with a zipper from Yesstyle.

However, PU as a material worries me as the weather is getting colder and I've had an experience with a pair of boots that had cracked when the temperature hit -20C (yes, it does get that cold here sometimes). I'm also worried about the possible customs and tax that might affect the purchase (anyone have any experience with ordering from Hong Kong?). After surfing some more in the wonderful world of internet, I found a couple of interesting pairs from Bianco Footwear. They both seem quite perfect but the price is still rather high for my taste.

If any of you dear readers know a good online store where I could get a pair of OTK boots that actually ship to Europe, are leather and not overly priced, please help a girl in need. I will also check a local store here since my trusted salesperson emailed me that might have something I'm looking for. I got my Bullboxer platform booties there after his recommendation and those have been my most worn pair of shoes this year. Hopefully my search will come to a happy end.

Think these are my favs I've seen yet!

I'm sure you'll stumble upon something just as good yet not as pricey; you usually do:)

Winda: Niinpä! Olis kiva tietää mistä popot on peräisin. Pitänee kaivella Ruotsalaisia nettikauppoja...

Krystal: Me too. Thanks for the tip!

Pter: You know I would die for those but I'm sure my credit card would die with me. Hopefully I will find something good. :)

Ite olen tilannut Yesstylestä ja 50e tilauksen kanssa tuli Tullimatka... Pääsin ilman tulleja, koska tilaus oli niin halpa, mutta nuo saappaat maksavat jo itsessään yli 70e ja siihen postikulut + varmaankin tullimaksut. En usko, että tekonahka on sen arvoista :) Supernätit nuo kyllä on!

bronxillahan on samanlaiset (nahkaiset) tuollaiset ylipitkät saappaat kuin nuo biancon missä on hapsut, mutta vaan ilman korkoa.. mutta hinta taas voi olla hieman korkea :P tampereella kuitenkin niitä löytyy!

Anomymous: Nopeasti ne olit bongannut, kun olivat edellisenä päivänä vasta ilmestyneet ikkunaan. ;) Tämähän tekee shoppailun helpoksi, kun minulla apureita liikenteessä. Kiitos siis siitä!:)
