After seeing all those thigh-high boots on the Fall runways this season, I’m having a Pretty Woman revival moment and am lusting after a pair of thigh-high boots lately – gray suede, to be exact. I have wayyyyy too much black in my life, and gray I’ve found is almost as versatile. Plus black is so expected. But thigh-high boots can run you a pretty penny – especially with a platform and a high heel.

So what to do?

I bought GoJane’s Cuff Down Platform boot for $31.30 and folded the cuff up over my knee.


They’re technically not over-the-knee boots (and aren’t being marketed as such), but since the cuff isn’t tacked down to the shaft of the boot, folding it up is not a problem! I wanted them to be gray but I overlooked that the color said “taupe,” not exactly one of my favorite colors. But it’s growing on me. I guess being slightly brownish makes them even more versatile. 

Since they’re no longer available, you could also try theFold-Over Suede Boot in Gray for $23.40. They don’t have a platform, though.
Or how about the Suede Slouchy Fold Over Cuff Boot in Dark Grey for $28.10? Sounds like a good deal to me!

And now there’s Alloy’s convertible Marlane Boot available for $42.90, lined with faux fur! That boot is actually designed to be a thigh-high….but whichever way you go, I think over-the-knee platform boots for $30-$43 is a pretty darn good deal, no?

I’ll be announcing the winners of my Post #300 Giveaway shortly!
