Ladies leather biker style knee boots worn by Miss Black Sole

Leather Boots from Shoespie

Every year, just as I do with gloves, I treat myself to a stylish new pair of black knee length leather boots from the newly arrived Winter stock. I have to confess to owning more than 30 pairs of knee-length boots alone, and that’s having done a recent clear out! But hey, who’s counting eh?
My shop of choice varies depending on what takes my fancy as I like go for the style I like rather than stick to any particular brand. For the past two years, I’ve bought my boots from shoespie.com
Two seasons ago, I invested in a gorgeous pair of the Graceful PU Upper Stiletto Heels in black leather. I so loved the fit, shape and heel, I bought a similar pair the following year called Gentlewomanly Patchwork Side Zipper Knee-High Boots. You can get these from the same place.
I paid $85 (approx €76 or stg£58) with free delivery when spending more $79. Delivery took 17 working days, a little slow but well worth the wait. Keep this in mind if you are buying from shoespie.com for an upcoming occasion, plan well in advance to allow for delivery.

My new boots arrived in a large box, lying flat and stuffed to hold their shape.

Lined with a luxurious cream fleece, they are warm and so very comfortable. They heels are quite high, 4″ to be exact

Lined with a luxurious cream fleece, they are warm and so very comfortable. They heels are quite high, 4″ to be exact, with no front platform so your foot is at a steep angle but if you’re anything like me you’ll learn to love them. I tend to prefer not having the platform because I can at least, feel the ground beneath me plus, in my opinion, they look a whole lot better this way!

The uppers are in full black leather with a cream leather sole. I tend to wear through all my heels quite quickly no matter the brand, usually only lasting 3 or 4 months before I have to get them re-heeled, but having said that, I wear these boots 5 days a week! All in all, the sole is really durable though.

I love the ‘biker’ look when it comes to leather boots, in flats or heels, it works for me in either style. These particular ones have a fabulous ‘Ribbed’ effect all the way up the shaft of the boot, with two zips and two buckles for added detail. I stand 5ft 8″ tall and don’t have the most slender of shins but these boots fit me particularly well. They are closed using a zip on the inside leg and have a semi-pointed toe allowing plenty of room for my foot to stay comfortable without crushing my toes.

I wear these leather boots mostly with skirts and dresses over plain tights or stockings. I have, on occasion, worn them over skinny jeans with a white shirt and a peplum leather jacket from Zara.com, and this worked really well, but I tend to prefer them with skirts.

I would rate the purchase of these particular boots 4 out of 5 stars, mainly due to the lengthy delivery time, although I can’t fault the boots themselves. Highest quality, comfortable fit and excellent value for money.
One of my favourite pairs in my collection.
