Elie Saab | Fall Winter 2019/2020 Full Fashion Show | Exclusive

In case you missed it.....a VERY bootie collection, worth a few moments of your time.

Yuri- Festival de Viña del MAR 2011 - HD Completo

If you've been doing this for as long as I have you may remember the Mexican singer Yuri. I had no idea she released her first album in 1978, but I certainly recall that by the mid-80's she was as reliably bootie as Mary J. Blige. Buried somewhere on a VHS tape I have a closet tour segment where she's surrounded by a mountain of boots. Here's a more recent concert. She changes outfits multiple times, and the bootie bits are between 19:05-35:20.


An upgrade from a much earlier post. Here's an HD view of some fine late 70's style bootage (look with actual leg-warmers!) from F. comme Fairbanks (1976)
Technically, only 3 years separate this movie from the one below (Comtessa Perverse) but their boot fashions are a decade apart.

An upgrade from a much earlier post. Here's an HD look at Contess Perverse (1973). A fine pair of 60's style OTK's from known boot fancier Jess Franco.

Below are some filled re-up requests that came in during my break. I am aware ALL of the old zippyshare links are gone.  For now I've decided to deal with re-uploading them on a request basis.
To ask for a re-up just post your request in the comment section of the clip you'd like refreshed. Blanket requests (i.e. "please upload ALL the Gotham clips") will be ignored and if you request 15 re-ups in the span of 5 minutes that might just annoy me. Be judicious and remember that if you're a long-time reader, you probably got it on your first go round.

Miss Ohio talks about the pageant and being confident

The esteemed TBenz of the Booted Newswomen blog shared this in the comment section a lifetime ago. Glad I could finally share it properly.  "Oh mio-my-o would you look at Miss Ohio."  Gillian Welch fans understand.

Grace Slick on Letterman, January 10, 1983

Add another reason to be thankful for JohnSmith14, 10 months ago he pointed me in the direction of this great clip. That's one hell of a pair of boots Gracie.

Chrissy Teigen Talks About Her Latest Book, 'Cravings: Hungry for More'

A reader tip that game in during my break. Chrissy has certainly become one of our modern current boot queens.

Sasha Achilli Talks "Stolen Daughters: Kidnapped By Boko Haram"

A tip from a reader back during my break.

Video: Jennifer Garner gets emotional after a call from Julie Andrews

A tip from my good friend JA. Nice to see Jen take a short break from pursing her goal of an "All-time frumpy mom dresser" award. Power went out just as I was writing this(yes on Thanksgiving morning). Finishing up on my laptop. Happy Thanksgiving everybody in the states. I've got loads to be thankful for, but I'll be very thankful when the power comes back on.

Gwen Stefani: L.A.M.B. Medley with Special Guest Eve - The Voice Live To...

Speaking of The Voice.Gwen's outfit is nice. Eve's hits it out of the park.

So it is written....

.....and so it shall be.

I love to label things. Categorizing helps me make sense of the world. There are nine pairs of over the knee boots in the two pictures above and to me they look almost identical.  I would hesitate to call them "stocking" boots.  The material is far thicker than a stocking. BUT, they are clearly more a fabric than a hide. I was looking at them and thought, "They kinda remind me of leg-warmers."  And the more I thought of it, the more it made sense. 

From now and forever forward, I will be refer to this sort of boot as LEGWARMER BOOTS. I have spoken.

Marie Osmond in black leather thighboots

So, this is what this clip started as, then I just kept adding things

Yesterday(11/26/19), Marie Osmond made her seasonal thighboot debut on The Talk. A little birdy told me that a certain someone with a newswoman blog (one of the greatest in the history of the internet) had a crush on Ms Osmond. Which is why I wanted to rush this one out. And because I can't leave well enough alone, I had to load the clip up with some other random clips I had laying around.
I would be remiss in my duties if I failed to mention the Spanish language dating show Enamorándonos(on Univision). The oft-booted and beloved Ana Patricia Gámez (from ¡Despierta América!) is the hostess and the show features a parade of lovely singles. The standout in this clip is the stunning cowboy footed OTK's paired with a shearling jacket. I've only been following Enamorándonos for a couple of days now and it's fab.

If you see something....

.....say something.

One of the problems with my rather myopic focus on Spanish language TV is that I give short shrift to some US shows, esp the talent competitions.  If you see some capture worthy scene that you think I might miss, let me know. The comment section in the most recent post is a pretty good place for it. Try to be a little specific. "You know, that show with that girl," is not terrible helpful (unless you're giving me a tip about the actual show That Girl).  But anything as general as "sometime in the last 3 weeks on The Voice" is more than enough.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled browsing.

El nuevo sencillo de Ana Barbara #EnCasaDeMara

Over the knee boots, two ways. BTW, both the subject (Ana Barbara) and interviewer (Mara Patricia Castañeda) have a long history with boots.

24 hours with Spanish language TV

 "So Bruce," say the voices in my head, "why do you spend so much time monitoring the Spanish language stations."
"Well," I reply to no one, "in less than 24 hours I saw-"
  • A group of singers wearing mid-thigh skirts and thigh-high boots
  • A singer in a FINE denim jumpsuit and tan thighboots
  • A singer in sherbet colored stocking boots
  • A singer in a jaw-dropping fetish-y outfit with patent thighboots
  • A singer in sparkly thighboots
  • A cooking segment that was interrupted by a woman in thighboots doing step aerobics
  • A thighbooted interviewer
  • A hostess in a decent pair of knee boots (included only to keep up the theme)
Everything in the clip below aired between the evening of Sunday, Nov 24 2019 thru to Monday afternoon.  Admittedly, this was an above average 24 hours, but take away the denim jumpsuit and shiny thighboots and it's pretty average for these stations.  That's why my DVR is full of shows I can't understand, but will always love dearly.

Tis the season

The cover of the new issue of The New Yorker. Not entirely sure a pair of spiky knee boots has ever graced the cover of this august journal.

A Most Bootiful Year Share A.Most.Violent.Year.2014.1080p.edit.mkv - 75 MB
The enjoyable A Most Violent Year (2014) featured a few precious shots of Jessica Chastain in prime late 70's style.

A mix, real quick like
A collection that I capped back on Dec 19, 2018.  Just wanted to get this done real quick to see how it went. Looking just like the old days.

During my break

During my break I stumbled across a great way to download almost any youtube video in 1080p for free. And unlike my previous method, it doesn't require that you use Firefox as your browser. It's a small stand-alone program called 4K Video Downloader.  I'm not comfortable just providing a direct link to the developer, so here's a review from TechRadar. You can read for yourself and decide if it's something you might like.

If you're an obsessive collector of video (like me) I think you'll find this program an indispensable part of your toolkit. Check it out, if it looks like something you might be able to use, give it go.

Peri Gilpin, briefly as a biker
From Benjamin (2019) Boy, this clip was on the bubble. It's short and the boots aren't that great. But it is Peri Gilpin as a light-comedy biker-chick and the rest of her outfit is interesting.  I needed a short and easy clip to test a few things. I tested a few things. What was I going to do, get it all set and then not post it?

Entrevista | Anitta: "J Balvin es el cantante que mejor huele" #yuSolter...

Last one from Vodafone Yu (for now).  Thumbnail (below) didn't show why you'd want to watch this video. The screen-cap (above) does.

Lifelist | La banda sonora de la vida de Recycled J y Ana Mena #yuMenaYR...

More with Ana Mena. I'm going to try to limit my youtube sharing to clips you might not find on your own.

I stumbled across Vodafone Yu a couple of days ago, overall WAAAYYY to much sneaker action going on with the guests but still worth keeping an eye on.

Ana Mena - Se te olvidó | #yuMusic

How does this work again?  My ancient brain seems to remember that there was a trick to it. Anyway here's Spanish singer Ana Mena doing her thing in black leather OTK's and matching shorts.

A quick test, getting my sea-legs back

A random and not too special mix of bootage I captured on Oct 7, 2017. Considering the date, you can expect way too many fabric thighboots.
A real quick test to see if I remember how to post. Trying something a little different with the screen-cap. Hoping that hosting it directly on blogger will make it a little easier to view full size, you know when you click on it.
Oh, that is much better. I haven't abandoned the idea of single image still-caps to give a sample of the best bits, but this way certainly seems better than having to click over to imagebam.

The Sleeper Awakes

Getting back into the swing. Please remember that the posts below this one are from 2018 and the vast majority of links are probably dead. I'll figure out something to do with them.
