There are boots that are striking and commanding due to their use of color, designs or extra features. Then there are those that are just as striking and commanding due to their simplicity and femininity. The narrow calved Stuart Weitzman Women’s Chicboot boot is definitely an example of the latter.
These tall, slim boots have a 17’’ shaft, a man-made upper and synthetic sole. There is currently a black or a black suede. Essentially, there is nothing but the darkest, boldest materials for a dramatic impact and the addition of suede just adds a touch of luxury. It may seem as though there is little to say about these boots because of their simplistic approach, but there are plenty of interesting choices that will appeal to a certain audience.
This boot is all about the shape rather than the look
When it comes to design features, there isn’t really anything here at all. The boot is constructed from a series of man-made panels, the material covers the entire boot for a uniform look (including the heel) and there are no extra details. There are no buckles, no accents on the stitching and no zip. This means that the focus of this boot is entirely on the shape. The stand-out feature (if you can call it that) is the overlay at the vamp. This black boot creates an impressive, feminine silhouette, or a “sophisticated profile” as the company call it. This is down to the strong 2 inch heel, the line of the sole, the almond-shaped toe and that skinny shaft.
The emphasis on these lines and the silhouette of this boot means that it needs to offer a good fit
That shaped calf area should be hugging the leg to highlight the shape and tone and add length to those legs. The company say that the boot “molds perfectly to your leg, enhancing every curve for a sexy look”. The specification for this boot states that the boot opening measure 12’’ but there is no mention of the circumference around the calf. 70% of Amazon reviewers state that these boots fit as expected, with the odd cliché of them fitting like a glove, while the rest felt they were a little large for their slim calves.
This isn’t a bad rating for a boot of this nature and the snug fit may be due to the use of the stretch shaft. The lack of a zip or any other type of fastening means that this a pull on boot and the stretch fabric helps with this. This style adds to the comfort levels for women that want to wear these boots on long nights and big occasions, but it should be noted that there is minimal padding or support in the sole.
Essentially, this sleek, slim legged boot is something for women to cherish on nights out
There are happy buyers talking about this Stuart Weitzman boot as an investors piece. It is not the cheapest option in the world, but the quality of the materials and the classic look mean that this boot will accentuate skinny calves for years to come and continue to make an impact. There is a minimalist look here, but the shape, fit and use of materials mean that the boots will make a lot of women very happy.
