One of the greatest disappointments in life is wearing an all black outfit and realizing your blacks don't match perfectly. (OK, maybe not one of the biggest disappointments, but it's kind of annoying). My blacks may be a little off in this look, but I still love it. I've had these boots for nearly 4 years now and love them. I was dying for a pair of over-the-knee boots when they first started gaining popularity, but there weren't that many affordable options at the time. These were around $200 and have been so worth it for me.
