While the "It" shoe at all of the summer music festivals may have been the bootie, with fall descending at a fast and furious pace, there's a new showstopper getting some serious attention: the knee-high boot. This sexy-yet-classy, calf-covering staple can be worn with everything from a skirt suit at the office to a flirty frock on a Friday night. And, even if you're not a knee-bearing gal, you can slip a pair of these babies over your skinnies for a polished look — how's that for versatility?
So, to get you started on your new autumn shoe collection, we present you with 20 pairs of knee-high stunners that are as diverse in style as they are in price. After clicking through and bookmarking your faves, we think you'll agree, these boots were meant for so much more than walking.
