15 Best Over The Knee Boots You Need To Shop

by Melanie Richtman

Over the knee boots have been pretty popular over the last year. There's something about them that's just a little bit cooler than their shorter counterparts. A little more... transgressive. Since thigh high boots are still going strong, we rounded up the best over the knee boots for 2016 so you can add some cool new pairs to your shoe collection this season.

The variety of over the knee boots available has really expanded since I bought my first pair in 2010. Yes, I owned two pairs of over the knee boots in 2010 and then got rid of them only for them to be incredibly stylish a few years later. But don't worry, I've learned my lesson and I have since replaced them with a few even cooler pairs.

Now, in 2016, your thigh high boot options are endless. Whether you want flat suede over the knee boots or leather ones with heels, you can find them, in almost every color imaginable too.

Celebrities love over the knee boots, and even wear them all year round, like when Khloe Kardashian wore a pair this summer and got a few weird looks, but fashion enthusiasts get it. We just love over the knee boots. And now, it's boot season again, so here are 15 pairs of over the knee boots you need in your closet.
