Today, February 5, 2017, Super Bowl Sunday in the United States, one thing is certain. Whether you are rooting for the New England Patriots or the Atlanta Falcons, there will be a whole lot of kicking going on!
Hut, hut, hike! Kick a field goal!
Do you want to watch great football, dine on good food and stay stylish in the process? How about going to a Super Bowl party or restaurant kicking yourself up to a higher fashion notch?
Knee-high boots! Always makes a fashion list at the top!
I have written prior style blog posts on boots in general, ankle boots, thigh-high boots, and from reader responses, people around the world love their boots. Today, let’s highlight knee high boots.
A boot is a type of footwear and a specific type of shoe. Boots can cover the foot and ankle, extend up the leg, to the knee, up the thigh, or to the hip. Most boots have a heel that is clearly distinguishable from the rest of the sole, even if the two are made from one piece.
Whether you prefer your boots flat soled, a minor heel, or spiked heels, knee high boots add charm, style and glamour to your feet, as well as to your outfit.
Boots are traditionally made from leather or rubber, modern boots made from a variety of materials. Boots are worn for functionality, as in protecting your feet and legs from water, snow, mud or hazards, and for providing ankle support. For fashionistas and those who want to rock a gorgeous or a trendy outfit, boots are worn for style and fashion.
Boot Fun Fact: The phrase “give one the boot” means to kick one out of a job, club, or expel someone, literally or figuratively.
If the New England Patriots win the Super Bowl, they will be giving the Atlanta Falcons the boot. If the Falcons take the NFL 2017 Championship, the Patriots get the boot.
Have you got your knee high boots on, ready to spur your preferred team on?
Knee High Boots Fashion Tip: Knee high boots look best when worn with a skirt or dress that leaves a few inches of leg visible from the top of the boot to the hem of the garment, or when your pant legs are tucked into the boots.
If you are wearing knee high boots, then by all means, show the vogue footwear off!
Boot History Fun Fact: Early boots consisted of separate leggings, soles and uppers worn together to provide greater ankle protection than shoes or sandals. Around 1000 B.C. these components were more permanently joined to form a single unit that covered the feet and lower leg, often up to the knee. A type of soft leather ankle boots were worn by nomads in eastern Asia, and carried to China, India and Russia, around 1200 to 1500 A.D.
Boot scoot boggie on, global boot lovers! A great pair of boots is a fashion turn on!
Here a boot, there a boot, everywhere a boot, boot, What a hoot!
Today, if New England comes up to win from a potential loss, or if the Atlanta Falcons are being defeated, and then end up on top, you can break up the party atmosphere by shouting out the popular boot phrase, “The boot is on the other foot now!” Then eat more munchies for emphasis and to heighten the overwhelming excitement!
Knee high boots add glitz and glamour to fabulous fashion power!
