I can hardly contain my excitement!!!! You guys, I have finally found THE GREATEST pair of over the knee boots that are THE BEST Stuart Weitzman dupes. I am not kidding you, I want to scream at the top of my lungs GO.BUY.THEM.
For several years now, I have been on the hunt for quality over the knee boots that closely resembles SW OTK boots. I have wanted a pair of SW boots ever since I first saw them. But like your average girl, I could not drop a month’s worth of rent on boots, especially boots I couldn’t even wear year round.
So I started my hunt for SW “inspired” over the knee boots. Just like so many designer trends, the SW over the knee boots were taken and mimicked by dozens and dozen of more affordable designers. From Ivanka Trump to Steve Madden, you name it, they had their version of the Stuart Weitzman Highland & Lowland.
I can’t tell you how many pairs of SW “inspired” OTK boots I ordered. I would closely read these reviews, which would be good, but when they came home and I opened the box, I was disappointed EVERY.SINGLE.TIME. (example in this post here). For American designers, the quality SUCKED. Every single pair was made with cheap, synthetic, “suede”-like material. I understand that I’m paying 1/4 of the price of the high end designer’s version. But c’mon, I’m paying almost $200 for crappy fabric.
When I came upon these Kaitlyn Pan over the knee boots, I didn’t want to have high expectations. I had been disappointed so many times before. But the reviews were incredible! People were raving about the quality and how close they came to the original SW Highlands so I had to see for myself. I couldn’t wait to get them (thank goodness for Amazon Prime). When I opened the box, I couldn’t believe it. I was ecstatic!!!! When I say the QUALITY of the boots is AMAZING, it.is.amazing. – believe me! The microsuede is not thin and cheap, actually the opposite. It’s thick and feels exactly like real suede. The shaft is snug and is thick enough that it has structure, hugs your legs and does not slouch. It also has ties in the back to tighten and secure it.
I feel like my review doesn’t even do them justice. Honestly, I like them so much, I plan to buy two more pairs. And for under $100 you really can’t beat it.
Review for fit wise: they do run a half size to a full size small. I usually wear a 6.5 in shoes, and ordered a size 7. I could have even gone with a 7.5. I by no means have slim legs and have relatively thick calves, but these fit me perfectly. It definitely has some stretch to it, but if you have a calf circumference bigger than a 16″, these won’t fit.
I hope this helps anyone looking for high quality, affordable OTK boots! Thanks for stopping by!
