New in at Net-a-Porter this week - and sold out already - are these dramatic Halston Misa over-the-knee boots in grey suede. Certainly not footwear for the faint-hearted, these boots have approximately 4.5" chunky heels, half gold-tone zippers on the inside leg, as well as panel detailing.

The site suggests you can wear them over pants, under dresses and with skirts although I guess it would depend on the length of the skirts/dresses - I seem to recall reading the number one rule about over-the-knee boots being to never pair them with bare legs (a bit too Pretty Woman!) I'd be more inclined to go the Kylie route and team them with jodhpurs or cigarette-leg trousers. That is, if I could work up the nerve to actually wear them! How about you - would you be brave enough to wear them?
