hunting for black knee-high boots? here are some of our long-standing favorites as of Nov. 2021!

Above: one / two / three / four
Sure, we all know what wardrobe essentials for work professional women are meant to have in their closets, but if you’re getting one for the first time or replacing one you’ve worn into the ground, it can be a pain to find exactly the ideal incarnation in stores. In “The Hunt,” we search the stores for a basic item that every woman must have.

Flat knee-high boots are one of those know-your-office situations — just a few years ago they were fairly scandalous, but now they’re everywhere. We haven’t done a roundup in a while (here are our 2017, 2015, 2014, 2013, and 2012 roundups Camiseta Sport Club Internacional — and our last discussion on whether knee-high boots are proper for the office. (Do you still think this is a question at all, ladies?)
Anyway: it’s been a while, so I thought I’d poke around… these are my favorites.

First, a few specialty categories that may be of interest — note that if you’re really on the hunt for a custom-made style, check out  Duo boots — you have the ability to tailor your fit, but they already have a large sale section that is up to 30% off today.

I’ve had a pair of Volatile shoes, and they were comfortable enough that I’m going to start today’s roundup with these $32 flat knee-high option, which comes in three colors and a lot of sizes. It’s a artificial leather upper and man-made lining, so note that these won’t be as warm as leather/natural linings (and likely won’t hold up as well), but if you’re trying to find a bargain, I’d start here. They were $69, but are now marked to $32. VOLATILE Wicker

I’ve heard terrific things about the comfort of Sole society boots, and a number of them are available for $83 — Nordstrom has a small selection, such as this great Bria boot in two colors; the Sole society web site has a lot a lot more marked 40% off (mostly under $90). Sole society Bria Boot

Anne Klein’s iFlex line is one of my favorite budget comfort shoe lines, so it’s a mystery to me why you can only see that it’s an iFlex shoe if you look at the picture of the bottom of the sole. In any event: these come in five color options, have great traction on the outsole, and basic buckle accents at the ankle. They’re available in sizes 5-11 for $169. Anne Klein Coldfeet

These Dorian stretch boots come in three colors. I particularly like that they’re leather on Camiseta SS Lazio the front, but stretchy on the back — best if you’re like me and your calves are too big for a lot of regular sizes, but too small for a lot of “wide calf” sizes. (Note that the Cole Haan Jodhpur Boot has similar elements, but is marked down as low as $139 over at 6pm.) The visualized boots are $298. Cole Haan Dorian stretch Boot

It’s hard to think of doing a boot roundup without including Frye — I’ve thought of them for years as having a terrific selection of well-made, durable, comfortable, and elegant boots. Their Melissa boots are one of their a lot of popular styles, and it’s spawned a zillion different mini-styles — Melissa Harness! Melissa tall Riding! Melissa Logo! Melissa Over the Knee! Melissa extended Calf Sizes! Both Nordstrom and Zappos have a ton of them, and they’re all highly rated. For the office I like these Melissa Harness inside Zip Boot, $428 at Zappos.

These Loeffler Randall wedge boots are some of my favorites on the roundup. Not only are they best sellers at Bloomingdale’s (but on deeper sale at Amazon), they come in four colors, have a teeny tiny wedge of 1.25″, and — if you’re a shortie — have only a 16.5″ shaft height. (Similar, but for $126: the Steven Intyce wedge.) The visualized shoes are $373-$695 at Amazon. Loeffler Randall tall Wedge Boots – Matilde
