Very nice MRX, I too just got my first pair of over the knee boots from Nine West. They too were on clearance and I got them for about $40.00 I can't wait for cooler weather  to wear them out. I want to wear them with a faux leather pair of women's shorts so the boots can be totally seen. May even wear a pair of fishnet hose too. Enjoy your new boots. I will.

Happy Heeling,

bluejay

The boots I didn't buy today: https://www.longtallsally.com/lts-black-5050-stretch-over-the-knee-leather-boots-in-standard-d-fit-p

Saw these in a local charity shop, brand new in box, right size, for £20. Tried them on. The foot fitted OK but they were truly horrible and baggy round the ankle.

Sorry buddy, know how disappointing these thrift shop finds can be.  I have to avoid the urge to buy when I see these "bargains",  but try to remember I am just tossing money out on boots I won't enjoy or wear.

@at9 "... brand new in box, right size, for £20. ..." says it all.

In the UK there is an absolute right to return goods ordered online for a full refund. I think the time limit is 14 days but it might be 30. The person who bought them originally presumably didn't get round to returning them in time.

There are other possible explanations for why they ended in a charity shop but that seems the simplest.

Yes, I’ve been caught out like that a couple of times with jeans - bought inline, not fitted well or not liked, and then forgotten about until it’s too late. Somebody else’s good fortune at the charity shop

The right to cancel must be exercised within 14 days of the date of delivery.   You then have a further 14 days to return the unwanted item.
I quite often see on a product review page a comment from someone who didn't like what was bought online, or that it was not as ordered/expected or was defective, and said that he simply 'threw it in the bin'.   A complete waste of money when there was a clear right to a refund, assuming that the item was not so cheap that returning it was not worthwhile.

Well, I already have them here.

They are not bad, but the heel is short: 11 cm.

I have become a 5 incher at least.

I'll return them probably and i'll go for higher heel.

Very nice looking boots! I applaud your ability to walk in five-inch heels - I find my calf muscles seizing up! I do like the look and elegant lines of boots with five inch heels though.

I'm still working on it, but 11 cm or less is already short but still elegant. My 42 size help me and I want a little bit more.

Go on!

Thanks! I like the imperiousness of five inch heel, the elegant lines and the pitch of the footbed. I'd like to be able to walk fluidly in them, although for my personal style I tend to prefer my 3-4 inch chunky heeled knee and OTK boots.

Totally same here. I wore my 5 inch pumps yesterday, loved the feeling, but still was quite a workout after an hour or so.

I have finally made a bit of progress, wearing my nine west "tenon" booties.  I really like them, and I'm guessing the heel height is between 4.5-5", I can walk quite well for extended periods.  Hoping to close in on the 5" hurdle that seems so hard to get over.  I had a pair before but wrecked one of the heels putting so many miles rough city miles on them.  Will be more careful with this pair.

My stiletto boots are from Italian Heels - their Tina model - and the stated five inch heel height is based on a size 38, and from there scaled up or down depending on your size, thus keeping the lines, angles and proportions consistent throughout the entire size range. As my feet are considerably bigger than size 38 the actual height of my heels are nearer 5.5 inches although the proportions and feel - the degree of difficulty if you like - would be identical to that of someone wearing a size 38 with a five inch heel. There is no possibility of “cheating” by having longer feet. The boots themselves are sold as five inch (or 12cm) heeled boots. I do like the elegance of the five inch heels - it seems to be the ideal summing up of the stiletto look -but they certainly do give the calves a workout and require a high degree of concentration. Carrying a pot if coffee back to the kitchen table where I work requires focus!

I would like to be fluid in my stiletto boots although my personal style is more for chunky heeled boots in the 3-4 inch range.
