Overknees were a real hit in the 80s. Today they are absolutely “in” again. Today’s fashion conscious woman surely has at least one pair of these boots in her closet. Smooth or suede overknees are preferred, but colored overknees are also offered. Overknee boots go perfectly with skinny jeans or leggings.
Overknees are a variant of women’s boots that have recently become increasingly popular with young women and are characterized by a particularly high-cut shaft. Unlike traditional women’s boots, which typically fall just below or slightly below the knee, they go above and beyond. The shaft, which extends a few centimeters above the knees, is therefore characteristic.
materials and colors
Overknees are usually available in leather or genuine leather, but also in fabric or suede and, of course, in different colors, with black and brown colors having turned out to be the most popular variations in this regard, as well as classic boots and ankle boots.
For a long time, overknees were generally considered nasty and sexy, especially when it came to models in vinyl designs. These new over-the-knee models have long since lost this image, as they are based on classic leather boot designs and differ only in the higher shaft of the boots.
