I’ve been looking around for more interesting styles of thigh high, over the knee and knee high boots to purchase. The selection at Fashion Nova and shopakira.com is pretty basic. But it seems like options for interesting styles of boots are only available if you happen to have money to afford high end purchases. Brands like Dolce & Gabbana have some interesting boots I’d love to get my hands on, but with price tags running as high as $10,700 for a pair of their Cardinal Crystal Jacquard Knee High Boot, there’s no chance of my getting my feet into a pair of these boots in my lifetime.

Even more expensive, although you can pick up a pair at a 40% discount at Farfetch as of this writing, is the Philipp Plein pair of tie-dye print thigh high boots. The retail price according to the Farfetch website is $12,090. But with the 40% discount you can get them for $7,279.

For $10000,you can pick up a pair of Jimmy CHoo “Exclusive Blake Crystal-Embellished Suede Knee Boots”. But note how the description gives a clue as to what kind of people buy shoes for ten thousand dollars.
Loved by everyone from mega-celebrities to first ladies and royalty, Jimmy Choo’s faultless roster of shoes and accessories have graced countless red carpets and glamorous events.(ModaOperandi product page description)

If you can afford the price tag of $5,345, these sequin boots from Dolce & Gabbana will definitely make a statement as promised in the description. These are labeled as over the knee boots in the product title on the mytheresa.com page, however, as shown on the model, they are knee high. And the description text describes them as being “Covered in sequins from knee to toe”. So these are knee high boots and not over the knee boots.

For $8,995 you can get your hands on these green/multicolor Dolce & Gabbana fringe knee high boots. They feature a blend of silk and leather with patterned jacquard and metallic threading.

To get your hands on all 5 pairs of these high end designer boots it will cost you nearly $50,000. Can you imagine spending $50,000 to acquire 5 pairs of boots?
So here’s a question for you? If you were given $2500 and told you could spend it to acquire 1 single pair of designer thigh high boots or 25 pairs of boots that retail for $100 a piece, what choice would you make?
