I have a birthday coming up and a cupboard full of various styles of brown boots and black ankle boots so I am on the lookout for some tall black boots. Knee-high I think (not sure I can carry off over-the-knee without looking like a principal boy - I am quite short). Low of heel so I can stomp about in them rather than only wearing them on occasions. Smartish rather than walking-bootish and I confess a slight weakness for victorian-style laces (but I do want leather rather than PU: for some reason victorian steampunky boots seem to be fake). Has anybody seen any likely candidates out there?
Docs not smart enough ants but thank you for replying. Raven, I am extremely wary of Fly after a winter when I nearly got trench foot! People tell me they are more waterproof these days but I remain sceptical. Dream in green looks more promising. Am I being odd to prefer leather? Maybe it is misguided. All the nice boots seem not to be.
