It’s no secret that knee boots are a huge trend this season. From thigh highs to lacing, these boots come in all shapes and sizes. What can be confusing is the difference between over-the-knee and thigh-high boots. We are here to help! Read on to discover the six most popular types of boots on the market right now. Are the boots high above the knee and thigh the same? No! Although both over-the-knee and thigh-high boots are hot items this year, there is a difference between them.

High boots

high boots

-High boots are boots that go above the knee. But why are they called thigh high? The name comes from their height, which is just below the crotch on most women’s legs. While some pairs may reach mid-thigh or slightly higher, others reach all the way to the butt! They are often made of leather and can be worn with dresses for a more formal vibe.

-High boots are a type of over the knee boots, but not all thigh high boots are above the knee. They are available in a wide range of colors and styles with various lace or leather finishes. You can see them as high boots, long boots, suede high boots, etc., depending on what they are made of. Thigh highs can be great for colder weather and winter events (think of that Christmas party!) It’s time to start thinking about spring too! These will look lovely paired with mini skirts and dresses.

-These fancy thigh-high boots tend to be more expensive than over-the-knee styles because they come in finer materials like suede, etc. Many times they will have lace details at the top that add an extra layer of style. Like over the knee boots, these can also be worn during the winter paired with dresses or skirts. You will definitely turn some heads when you wear one!

Over the knee boots

-Are they over the knee boots out of style? If there was one trend that people couldn’t get enough of during the winter months, it was knee boots. While they come in different styles and materials, there’s one thing all knee-high footwear has in common: they go above your knees!

-Over The Knee Boots, A more formal style than their above-the-knee counterparts is the typical over-the-knee boot. These are a popular choice for colder weather conditions as they often rise to the knee and keep you nice and warm. They are made from various materials (on suede, leather, fur, etc.), but most are typically black or brown. These boots look great on their own with the right outfit!

-Over-the-knee boots are the simplest style of over-the-knee boots. They are typically made from suede or faux leather, etc. and tend to look a lot like thigh-high boots except they stop above the knee. These are also quite versatile because you can wear them with dresses during the summer for an extra flair. When paired correctly, they will definitely keep your legs warm even in cold weather!

-For those looking to invest in some new boot options for this winter, we have decided to put together a list of our favorites when it comes to over-the-knee style boots available today. Whether you’re looking at lace-up or zip closures, these are bound to be popular with fashionistas everywhere this year.

Leather Boots

Finally, we have our tall pair of leather boots that rise just above the knees (hence why they are often referred to as “long” boots).

They are great for pairing with skinny jeans or leggings and can also be worn under dresses, skirts, etc. to add some warmth in colder temperatures. The only downside is that if you wear them on wet days they will absorb water pretty quickly!
