Sure, we all know what basics professional women are supposed to have in their closets, but if you’re buying one for the first time or replacing one you’ve worn into the ground, it can be a pain to find exactly the right incarnation in stores. In “The Hunt,” we search the stores for a basic item that every woman should have.
We haven’t done a roundup of knee-high, heeled boots for a while (2013, 2012), so I thought we’d go on the hunt. (Note that in our last poll, almost 70% of readers said knee high boots were office-appropriate with regular skirts (not minis) — still, knee-high boots are definitely still a know your office situation.) Note also that I’m going to do an entirely separate roundup for flat boots (hopefully in two weeks) — so please stay tuned!
Some great general sales to note if nothing here strikes your fancy:
- Amazon is offering an additional 25% off select boots and shoes — most are eligible for Prime and have free shipping and free returns.
- Note that Nordstrom will price match anywhere if you prefer their customer service and open return policy — they also have select boots marked down 33-50% off.
- 6pm has boots up to 70% off including Clarks, Aerosoles, Born, Ivanka Trump, La Canadienne, Tsubo, and more…
- Shoes.com is offering 25% off sitewide (last day of the sale) with code SAVE25.
