When sweater weather blew into New York this past weekend, the boot brigade trotted out, sharp, polished, and fantastically knee-high. These calf-hugging, block-heeled leather boots are like a breath of fresh air--i.e., not your typical season-after-season ankle bootie. I saw them pounding the Soho pavement with everything from loose-fitting trousers to skirts and dresses. The sight of it all inspired me to hunt down some of my own. Of course, I found several amazing options that I'd like to get knee deep into, including these pairs by Stuart Weitzman, Barneys New York, Madewell, Report, Gucci, See by Chloe, Loewe (above) and Gianvito Rossi.
