I know, I know. It’s spring. You’re probably totally jonesing to trade your boots in for sandals. But maybe not just yet. ‘Cause we have two boot deals that are almost impossible to resist. First up: the I98020 Thigh-High Buckled Boot by Giuseppe Zanotti. You know the thigh-high boot trend is going to be just as hot this fall, don’t you? So why not get a sexy flat pair to go with your shorts/leggings/skinnies/minis for fall/winter 2010? These Zanottis were originally $1.090, and they’re now half-price. Sure, it’s a little steep, but I’ll bet you’d have these babies for the rest of your life—that’s a cost-per-wear figure that justifies the investment.

Topshop “DOLLIE” Over Knee Buckle Boots

UPDATE (09/13/2010): Just in time for Fall Topshop brings us another Zanotti OTK boots alternative in a rich black suede. Love these! They’re also available in taupe suede if you prefer a lighter color for your boots.

Jeffrey Campbell “Lara” Above the Knee Boots

Maybe even the cost-per-wear of the Zanotti boot isn’t enough to legitimize a half a grand on a boot. Fair enough. Snap up the lovely “Lara” Above the Knee Boot by Jeffrey Campbell instead. Mmmm, they’re tall. They’re strapped and buckled. In sum, they. Are. HOT! I just cannot fathom wearing these and not being the envy of all the women1and men—in a 50-yard radius. And $185, for a thigh-high, 100% leather boot? I’m sold.
