Little Mix ft Charlie Puth Perform Oops into Touch | Finals | The X Fact...

What kind of year is it? It's the kind of year where I paused for a moment to consider if this clip of 4 thighbooted singers was worth posting. We've gotten SO spoiled.

Joanne Froggatt Talks About Wrestling with Typecasting Early in Her Career

The Downton Abbey star wears a pair of fringy suede OTK's in this excerpt.

The Cast and Director Discuss Their Film, "Coming Through The Rye" | BUI...

More from the BUILD Series. It's official, I definitely prefer "this years boot" in beige or grey over the light-sucking, detail-destroying black variety.

Billie Lourd's Grandma Debbie Reynolds Tried to Scare Her from Acting

This clip proves that without the walk-out scene, most talk show appearances are an exercise in frustration. Trust me she is wearing boots and at about the 2 minute mark you actually get to see them for a bit.

Veja os melhores momentos de Xuxa Meneghel desta segunda-feira (5)

Xuxa did a "throwback" episode recently where she dressed like this.  Her current program, a generic talk show,  is a mixed bag. Much of the time she dresses like Ellen Degeneres is her fashion guide, but every once and a while she'll break out a decent pair of leather OTK's. And on this one occasion  she remembered the outlandish style that made her famous. The clip below is too long, but showcases the outfit above.


Natalia brings new meaning to the phrase "shake your bootie."

Here's another one-


There's more out there, but most are of shockingly poor quality.

Little Mix X-Factor UK

Little Mix perform Shout Out To My Ex! ¦ Results Show ¦ The X Factor UK 2016 from Maria on Vimeo.

I don't normally post Vimeo links, but this clip has been completely scrubbed from Youtube.  You never know what the "high water mark" was until AFTER the flood has subsided.  Next summer when we're all bored it wouldn't surprise me if we looked back and said, "THIS was the bootiest it got in 2016/17."  I'm not saying "the best," but this is just......nuts.  

Olympian Missy Franklin, Dick Franklin & D.A. Franklin On Their Memoir, ...

More from the BUILD Series. Would not have minded if mom and daughter had switched boots

Joan Rivers Athena Swing Style Shirt on QVC

Tam Benz took time away from his hectic pace on The Newswomen blog to share this clip he calls "Must See TV." I could not agree more.  I LOVE the hostess's black boots/white pants combo and the "Swing" shirt just pushes it over the edge.

BTW-searching QVC's youtube channel for "over knee boots 2016" returns a number of watchable clips.

Ханна - Без тебя я не могу (Премьера клипа, 2016)

A tip from the comments section. Just a beautiful Russian (?) singer striding about in killer shiny thighboots. Multiple full views and close-ups. If you like that sort of thing.

Back around 2010 I spend a few months obsessed with R-pop. Looks like I'll need to revisit the genre.

Fergie Performs 'Life Goes On'

Fergie boots it up on Colbert.

Sara Sampaio and Adriana Lima On The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show

A few months ago I said the "BUILD Series" on youtube would be worth following once the boot season started. I was right. Sara's high-heeled black "suede" thighboots suffer from imperfect lighting, but it is a half-hour interview without obstructing tables or desks.

Oh, and I hope you didn't need me to tell you that there were boots in this year's Victoria's Secret show.

WON YouTube Presents-Supergirl: Endurance (Fan Film)

Forget about the spandex shenanigans in the second half, there's a long, tremendous section from around 2:45 to roughly 10:00 that features a KILLER pair of cuffed leather thighboots over shiny black pants.

Stylist Selects | How To Wear Over-the-knee Boots

Very nice indeed, I think I missed this somehow back in September.

Over the Knee Boots Style Out with Kyle Anderson

Who knew Nine West had a channel, this clip gets better towards the middle.

Hailee Steinfeld & EDGE OF SEVENTEEN Cast Talk First Crushes

This year's boots

Conversations with Kristen Bell and Ted Danson of THE GOOD PLACE

IMO, the boots Kristen wears in this long interview about her watchable, but bootless new show are about as good as knee boots get.

This time Alison wears her leather thighboots.

ACL Presents: Americana Music Festival 2016 | Alison Krauss "Gloryland"

For some reason I'm always surprised by Alison's fondness for thigh boots.

Linda Ronstadt - Fox Theatre, Atlanta, GA 1977-12-01

For vintage fans, from 1977-an entire concert by Linda Ronstadt wearing some classic 70's knee boots over jeans.

Man, What A Season

I don't know how it's been where you are, but in the world of TV ephemera (i.e. morning news/chat shows) this has been a boot season for the ages........if you like "suede" OTK's.  I find them to be somewhere between tolerable and quite nice, so I've been happy. Insanely busy, but happy.

It's a rare day that doesn't feature several pairs of "cap-able" boots amongst the 10 or 15 shows I monitor every day. The process of pulling boot scenes off my DVR is taking up a ridiculous amount of time. Time I would normally spend trimming and posting. Because I have limited space on my DVR, this is work that cannot be postponed.  As I type this, Samantha Ponder is talking college football while wearing over-the-knee boots. Just another Saturday morning.

Of course, being me, I'm still scouring youtube for clips. And finding a number of hidden gems. For a brief period I could fool myself into thinking that, "I'll share these when I start posting my own edits again." Far too many were going to slip through the cracks. So, until the current boot-avalanche subsides, I'll be using this blog primarily to share youtube clips, give programming alerts and to issue vague predictions and  pompous observations.  I hope that regular posting of my own trimmed clips will resume in the spring when things calm down a bit.
