Overknee boots – this Tamaris shoe trend is hot
Overknees are, as the name says - boots with the shaft ending above the knee. Overknee boots have long lost their image as simple, warm winterboots. They became a big fashion trend in the 1980s. Also the character as fetish shoes, which the patent-leather models had, is long lost. Special attraction was won through the movie Pretty Woman, in which Julia Roberts wore these shoes together with mini skirts, which put emphasis on her already long legs. Nowadays, overknees can be found in various types – from very feminine to sportive.
Overknees from sportive to very feminine
At Tamaris, overknees can be found in various styles. They are available with high heels and very feminine, but also in very sportive ways, where the boots remind strongly of riding boots. A special type is the overknee with a foldable shaft. It can be worn folded underneath the knee, or it can be unfolded to reach atop the knee and be a real overknee. Materials of overknees at Tamaris are mostly smooth leather or suede.
One thing is certain: well combined, overknees are a real eyecatcher. These boots look particularly great when their special feature, the high shaft, is emphasised correctly. Short skirts, which end above the boots, are a great way of combining as well as skinny trousers, where the trouser legs are tucked into the boots. Although longer skirts can be worn with overknees, the high shaft is hidden under long skirts, thus hiding the effect of the overknees. These boots can be worn during daytime, but also for evening events. In offices and similar environments, overknees are only a good idea if a casual dresscode is in place.
Overknees are not only great in winter
