Some women are blessed with slim legs that go for miles. As a result, they are entitled to a boot that shows off this feature well. The Stuart Weitzman Women’s All Legs Leather Boot is a tall, over-the-knee boot that is out to impress. The makers advertise it as an “even-sexier incarnation of the perpetually popular “HIGHLAND Boot”. Buyer feedback shows that it is hard to argue with this assessment.
This thigh high boot has the length and shape that makes it appear to go on forever. The cut and lines are very simplistic for a uniform look and accentuated length and the addition of the 5’’ heel doesn’t hurt either. There is also a sense of elegance to the boot in the shape around the calf and the pointed toe.
There are two important talking points with these boots that might influence prospective buyers in their decision. The first is the material used and the second is the detail at the back.
There is some debate about the material that has been used to create this large 30’’ long upper. The company are keen to point out that Stuart Weitzman has “a reputation for its creative use of unique materials in footwear and accessories and for its attention to quality”. This makes the dispute even more interesting. The product specification on some listings states that the boot is leather with a rubber sole. On arrival, the boot feels more like suede. The question for wearers is whether it is actually true suede and the listing was incorrect, or if it is just a nice quality suede effect. Whichever it is, most are impressed with the feel and the quality and do not feel that they have been cheated in anyway.
Then there is the issue with the fastening. As was highlighted above, the appeal of this thigh high boot lies in the long, simple shape for slim legs. There is a lack of fixtures and details so that the illusion of length is not broken. With this is mind, the fastening at the back leads to some mixed reactions, and not all of them are positive. The boot has a tie running through a loop at the top. This is used to tighten the 18’’ opening and secure it above the knee. The problem with this approach is that the bow created in the tying process stands out a little too much on such a plain background. This is the sort of boot with a smaller opening and some elastic might have worked better.
There are question marks next to this Stuart Weitzman Women’s All Legs Leather Boot, but it is undoubtedly an interesting, stylish thigh high boot for women with slim legs.
Overall, there is a lot of love for this boot because of the quality of the materials, the fit and the style. Some choose to wear this footwear over jeans and leggings to ensure a better fit, but most are comfortable enough for tights or bare legs. The designers tried to do something a little different with this shoe and they succeeded in that respect. Not all the elements are a hit, but the majority of buyers are still singing their praises.
