If you remember Vixen, you know why this is here. If you're too young to remember this might look like your mom's older sister dressed up in heavy metal gear, but I think they're holding up pretty well. Sadly, guitarist Jan K (my favorite in the band) passed a few years back, but the singer has picked up the over-the-knee torch. Here's some more, there are a bunch out there-

Wow, I had kind of lost track of this clip I made way back in 2008. Twin Daggers (2006) is a pretty horrible chop-socky action flick saved by the brief appearance of a leather-clad ass-kicker. I've got a line on an HD version of this, but just in case here's a DVD rip. After a seductive dance, she reveals she has a stiletto blade in the toe of her black leather knee-scrapers.
When I was but a young boy, there was TV show that would present "foreign" children's movies dubbed into English. About 40 years ago they aired a movie about a princess who dressed briefly as a hunting girl and featured a close-up of her boots descending a ladder. That image stuck with me, but I never dreamed I would ever see it again. Imagine my surprise when I stumbled across it quite by accident. Her boots are nowhere near as nice as I remembered, but her buckled and gloved leather outfit is quite nice. Here is Tři oříšky pro Popelku (Three Nuts for Cinderella) from 1973.
Megan Fox guested on her then husband BAG's (HAH! I just noticed the initials for Brian Austin Green) dreadful sitcom, Wedding Band. This is s01e02. I don't know what I was thinking when I made this clip. It goes on for WAAAAYYY to long without any boots in the frame. Extra credit for the first scene featuring my sweetheart Melora Hardin.
Megan Fox spent the majority of Transformers 2 (2009) in action girl mode, running and jumping in white pants tucked into boots a few inches too low to merit serious attention. Nice Daisy Duke's in the first scene though.

From The Minx (1969), we see a pair of each of black and white thighboots disappearing under mini-skirts. That's a hell of a look Doc. Too bad about the image quality, but its a wonder these sorts of movies survive at all.
In these scenes from The Listener s02e12 from 2011, we see how ahead of the curve Lauren Lee Smith was. Suede thighboots wouldn't become common for another 5 years. I don't believe they've ever been common on police detectives. More boots from The Listener here.
