Because you asked for them, and we aim to deliver! We searched high and low to bring you 12 affordable long boots. And the best part? Each pair is under R500! With everyone focusing so much on ankle boots this winter, those of us who love long boots are left wondering if we have to spend thousands in order to find a great pair (and long boots are usually more expensive anyway).
But, at Essentials, looking great and getting a good deal go hand in hand, so we went scouting for all the best places to shop for chic long boots without breaking the bank. We really think we found something for everyone and for every occasion – you can dress these long boots up for special occasions or down for a day at the park. Either way, you’ll be looking super cute!
Casual and chic long boots
Every woman needs a pair of comfortable long boots in her closet. They are great for everyday use, whether you’re wearing a flowy dress or a pair of flattering skinny jeans. A pair of long boots that stops just under the knees is the perfect option for most body types. If you are on the petite side, over-the-knee black boots, worn with black skinny jeans, will elongate your legs. And if you want a little extra height, but don’t want to sacrifice your comfort (understandably!), choose a pair with a block heel.
