Random caps-pt B
Truly a mixed bag. More Suzy, many random HGTV boots and Rosie Perez wears "suede" thighboots to interview an OTK shod Mrs Hughes (Phyllis Logan).

Random caps-pt A
Suzy Kolber busy being adorable in functional boots, Queen Latifah chats in knee-scrapers and a tasty fashion segment highlights a pair of leather OTK's.

Random Caps-NFL
Clearing out some folders, here's some footage from the lead-up to the Steelers/Packers Super Bowl back in 2011. The magnificent Alex Flanagan sports a pair of knee-scrapers 

Random Caps-HGTV
I like home improvement shows, I like boots, I LOVE it when the two intersect. Here's a collection of boots from about 6 years ago.

It's Magic!
Sittah is a Dutch magician who has miraculously flown under my radar for years.  Here she is from Masters of Illusion s04e12, but she's been wonderfully booted for ages. A google search reveals a number of booted pics. Below you'll find some youtube clips that I found in a matter of moments, I'm sure there are more.

Christina goes deep into her closet
In the premier (and so far only) episode of Tracks, Christina Aguilera breaks out a 6-ish year old pair of boots.

Thanks TB

The esteemed Tamaro Benz shared this picture of actress Laura Prepon. . This was from her appearance on Amazon's Style Code Live webcast. Sadly Amazon doesn't keep a deep archive of the show, so the complete appearance seems to have vanished. Here's some video I found of her in the same outfit.

BTW-youtube thighboot style guide videos are out of control. I just barely escaped this session without sparking a major browser bloom.

Here's a thighboot segment from Style Code Live-

Home and Family And Over-the-Knee Boots

Even with Tanya and Christina gone, Home and Family (on the Hallmark Channel) still manages to boot it up. The Friday, Sept 23 episode, which will repeat as the second show Monday the 26th, featured a segment on over-the-knee boots. For some reason Hallmark didn't upload this to youtube, but the segment is on their site. So here's a boring old text link to the video-

And because it's Home and Family and the usual rules don't apply, Paige actually wore her own OTK's for the rest of the show(below) and they're better than the pair she wore during the segment-

I've saved the show and will be trimming it down shortly, but I wanted to get this up before the episode repeated on Monday.

For DirecTV subscribers

The Audience Network is available free to DirecTV subscribers. If you can't find the shows airing "properly," they're available on demand for months. I've captured both of these specials, and will be trimming them soon, but wanted to give you a heads up.

Of interest to us- the episode of Undeniable with Joe Buck  featuring beach volleyball champion Kerri Walsh Jennings.  Why yes, I am interested in a well-photographed, hour-long interview with a 6 foot blonde wearing over-the-knee boots over "leather" leggings.


The special introducing us to The Sisterhood features both bandmates in over the knee boots, with Ruby Stewart (yes, Rod's daughter) deserving special mention for her wonderful black leather beauties.   Here's the promo video to give you a taste, except for one piano blocked number the entire special is quite nice -

I've just done brief searching for The Sisterhood and it's pretty fruitful, with Alyssa Bonagura (the brunette) being a prolific boot wearer. You'll probably be hearing more about them later.

Thigh High Boots Fall/Winter 16-17 Trend

Here's this fantasy I have. Someday, I'm going to find the complete videos of the shows highlighted here and trim them down to there bootiest bits. Someday.

Denim Chap Boots

So this is what it looked like when Rihanna wore them-

.....September has been a little hectic here. A week getting ready for vacation, a week on vacation, a week recovering from vacation.  Then I realized that if I was going to upgrade my DVR, this was the time to do it. It took a lot of time to capture the hours of recordings stored on my old DVRs, but the lure of a 5 tuner, whole-house system was too strong.  I won't bore you with the minutia of my process, but I'm MUCH better situated to preserve the ephemera1 (morning news shows, afternoon chat, etc) that will document the upcoming boot season.
The usual mix of new and old clips mixed with pompous musings and self-evident observations that you've come to expect should resume shortly. Oh, to clarify, the clips in the "New DVR" flood immediately below are NOT the product of either of my DVR's. Rather they're simply a collection of hastily assembled, random clips from my archive.

1Primetime TV and feature films are preserved for eternity.  I could find an episode of Chicago PD from 2014 in under a minute. If a guest on Good Day LA wears a great pair of boots, capturing it live might be our only hope.
