It seems like the same 720 version that's been making the rounds. This one may also disappear. I've found an OK looking 1080 version, but I'm not sure it's THAT much better than this one.

This appears to be the "official" release. It looks decent on full screen at 1080.

This time from Last Man On Earth S01e08. Neither as long or as nice as the last one. The clip that is, the boots are just the same and just as sweet.
I'm thinking of a composite clip of these once the season is over. I hope there will be some more and these seem like the perfect clips for some slo-mo and repeats.
Better than the first one I posted (now deleted)
Rihanna in green and black thighboots. Still looking for a better version(this one only 480p). Am shocked by how many people point their cell phone at their TV and then upload the result.

Madonna in thighboots, Taylor in spiky knee boots. Still looking for better version.
Gone for now. Patience is a virtue
Booted Newswoman Hall of Famer Carrie Keagan guested on The Metal Show in 2010 and OF COURSE she wore a great pair of boots. The normal talk show protocol is wide angle walk-on, then headshot, headshot, headshot until the camera pulls back for the commercial break. The Metal Show broke convention and every second or third cut was a tasty mid-range shot that showed Carrie's boots (fu@kin' table). A tight boot-only edit would have been a jumbled mess (and taken an hour to trim down). So, this is pretty much the entire episode minus a few unbooted segments.
Sorry no youtube.
This is from S01E14, but a good episode of Nikita often featured some wonderfully outrageous outfits and boots. These over the knee snow boots might not be everyone's first choice, but she wears them well.
In hindsight, this set of posts featured more flats than I would normally cram into one day. I try to keep a nice mix, apparently I didn't try very hard today.

A tasty pair of knee-scraping black leather boots with a wedge heel from Young and Hungry S02E01. Thanks to a reader for the nudge. I knew there were boots in this, but was surprised by their quality and amount of screen time. Getting almost 2 minutes of bootage out of a sitcom is pretty good. Action shows sometimes feature better boots (doing more interesting things) but often a sit-com's lighting and staging give us the best views.
BTW-by using my groundbreaking boot height nomenclature guide I was comfortable naming these knee-scrapers, but if they were even a fraction of an inch taller I'd have gone with OTK. I find a lot to like about these boots.

From La Femme Ecarlate (1969) Monica looks ravishing in thigh boots and a fur coat. Also a brief moment at the end where she stomps on a creep's foot.
More movies need to be shot like this. I've zoomed through about 100 full length features in the last couple of days and have been shocked by how infrequently so many directors give us full-body shots. There were some movies that I'm certain I never saw what any of the actresses were wearing on their feet.
MPC screwed up the aspect ratio of the stills. It plays correctly in MPC, VLC and WMP
In the States at least, the VHS of Blonde in Black Leather (1975) was stocked by just about every video store you ever went into(you see kids, people used to rent big bulky tapes from actual stores). If you're of a certain age and share certain interests, you've certainly seen it. It's a classic and I'm surprised it's not mentioned more often. It's going to be a nightmare to edit down, Monica Vitti spends almost every moment of the movie in a leather suit tucked into knee high boots. This scene where she goes in to have her suit polished is wonderful. I was trimming down La Femme Ecarlate (above) and remembered how much I loved Monica in Blonde in Black Leather. I thought even if I don't do the whole movie why not share my favorite scene. This clip comes directly from the commercially available DVD without ANY conversion. I haven't found a better version. Maybe someday I'll do a trim of the whole thing, but for now...
Late Add-Girl on a Motorcycle is probably a little better known. I will not indulge in a debate of the relative merits of Monica Vitti vs Marianne Faithfull. A simple comparison between their footwear renders the point moot. A proper pair of knee boots with a 3 or 4 inch heel will ALWAYS trump a pair of ankle-high flats.
