There are some narrow calf boots for skinny legs that do a good job of adding a little length and definition to the legs of wearers. Then there are tall boots like the Carlos by Carlos Santana Women’s Raimi Slouch Boot that go out of their way to enhance a slim leg with everything they have got. Tall is an understatement with this shoe. The clean lines stretch up the leg so that this 18 inch shaft makes the most of the entire lower leg. If that was not enough, there is a strong, tall heel that makes a big statement on night out.
These Brown Shoe Company shoes are referred to as a slouch boot, yet the fit seems to be pretty defined.
Slouch boots make us think of the slightly more casual, saggy boots with a little excess around the ankles. Here there is a clear shape that runs from the ankle, over the calf, to the shaft opening below the knee. This creates a strong curve on a normally hidden skinny calf. There should be no misconception about this shoe’s role. It is stylish, sexy and eye-catching.This sexy look is arguably more pronounced in the model with the black suede look to the synthetic upper. However, the tan model is still pretty attractive. It is said that “these shoes reflect the same passion and energy that is generated by Carlos Santana’s music”. Whether or not that means that it inspires women to get up and dance depends on the wearer – and also how well they can handle that high heel.
If the slouch element isn’t down to the shape, it is more likely due to the fit of the shoe.
The boot has a 12 inch opening at the top which should be OK for most women with slimmer calves. The fit is then made easier with the use of the zip on the side. This zip reaches half way up the inside leg, making it advantageous for an easier fit but also hidden from sight. The outside leg remains clean and minimal with that bold shape.
It many ways, this Carlos by Carlos Santana Women’s Raimi Slouch Boot is a pretty basic boot with little in the way of details or eye-catching elements, yet there are still those women that say that they received compliments. This goes to show that you can never underestimate the appeal of a sexy shape, minimalist black suede and long legs.
