Sky Scrapers UK, Valentina round toe with a 4.5" heel, eyelet lacing all the way up :)

Looks like a 4.5" in UK8 is just over 5".

My goodness gracious those are show stoppers.  With the round toe they look comfortable.  They also, with no zipper, represent a commitment to wearing boots.

A long time ago I tried on a pair of lace-up thigh boots in a local shop (now sadly out of business).  I commented at the effort required to lace them and the sales gal, who was much more aware of the ways of the world than I was, said, "The idea is to get someone else to lace them for you."

Enjoy your boots.  They would look great with you black riding outfit on your motorcycle.

Thighbootguy: about fifteen minutes to put them on for the first time, about five to remove before bed. I did intend to make it easier to keep them on then remove them ;)

The rounder toe is comfortable, and while snug on the sides I can tell these will break in wonderfully. I really was hoping for 4.5" heel and not 5", but I was able to make dinner, feed dogs, do laundry, etc around the house last night. These might be my training boots.

 

I remember trying on a thigh high Hot Peppers ballet boot years ago. Only tried one as it took 45 minutes combined to put on/take off and i could tell it was too small.

Hey Rockpup,

Loving your new Valentina boots, like the round toe box and great colour....are they Berry Red? How are you finding the quality of SkyScraper.

Your post inspired me to wear my grey Gabrielle boots today. Cheated big time though, as well hidden under flared pants.

Aristoc:I am quite happy with the comfort and quality. Have worn them for a few hours so far and expect them to mold perfectly to my feet. Still not sure how long it will be for me to wear the 5.5" out and about though ;)

Rockpup,

Good to hear your ok with them. Might try a pair with the round toe box option to give my tootsies a break. :fine:

As said, still catching up on recent purchases, Stuart Weitzman Highland boots. Found them at Nordstrom Rack for a surprising price :)

Finally got some stirrup strips for my jeans to wear them over pants. Giving that a shot.

WoW!  Stewart Weitzman's at a good price...and they look fantastic too.  That blade heel should make them real easy on the ankle.   Color me jealous.

I really hope you enjoy them.

I'm really liking those boots James. Can't believe I never saw them when Zu was alive and well! Comfortable?

Hi Kim

Snug, but not overly so, and will stretch been real leather. Really comfy. A little bit to get used to with height, but all good. 30 min walk in Oxford street Paddington where all the swanky shops are this morning. Black not as noticeable as the light gray ones

and price was right !

Inspired by @heelsareme I went and bought myself a pair of Nine West Leandra ankle boots in black with a set-back heel.

Originally AU$169.95 they had been reduced to $109.95 and, for today only, they were reduced by another 30% bringing them down to $76.96 - bargain!
