Having five older brothers may be the reason I love boots so much.
The fight for the TV remote was an ongoing struggle throughout my childhood, and mostly, my brothers won. As a result, I watched a lot of X-Men, Spiderman and every possible super-hero related programme.
The women, seemed to always have fabulous boots, in which they could do every thing imaginable including saving the world on a weekly basis.
I think this may be the reason that boots are my favorite item of clothing, hands-down. To me, they were always worn by strong women and by proxy, wearing them makes you a stronger woman.
I now fully understand that many of the women portrayed on TV are not the most ideal role models, but as a kid, I thought they were simply magnificent!
Every time I wear a pair of boots, I feel strong and confident and the over-the-knee beauties above are certainly a welcome addition.
Will you be embracing this trend this year?
