Despite the fact that everyone is wearing "real" shoes less and less this year, knee-high boots have still managed to hold their ground amongst the fancy slippers and Birkenstocks of the world. Knee-high boots are a classic style that rarely loses its relevance which is probably why shoppers see no harm in continuing to add a pair or two here and there to their closets. This tall footwear trend looks amazing over jeans, underneath skirts and dresses, and much more so if you were thinking that they aren't the most practical boot choice, you're wrong. 

While yes, more versatile versions are always a good idea including the black and dark mock croc versions, we've also seen fashion girls donning more daring pairs such as the cow print pair above. Trust me, there is much more where that came from and today, I am here to bring you the best knee-high boots on the market. From a square-toe lime green pair to the kind of black boot that is so sleek, you don't care what it costs, I am confident you will find your dream pair of knee-high boots somewhere below.
