The Perfect Over-The-Knee Boot: Gianvito Rossi's Sexy But Sophisticated Pair

Senior Fashion Writer

Fashion editors are a notoriously picky bunch. But one thing they can agree on? The sheer beauty of Gianvito Rossi’s over-the-knee boots. “I first saw them in Milan during fashion week,” says Lucky fashion director Anne Keane. “There was a sort of collective swoon as a few of us spotted them at the same time.” “Swoon-worthy” is just the right phrase to describe the boots—and the brand, which launched in 2006 and benefits from a serious shoe pedigree (Rossi’s father is legendary footwear designer Sergio Rossi). Rossi’s iteration of the thigh-skimming style comes in rich shades of navy, black, brown and taupe leather as well as gray suede. “It’s an ideal marriage of a lot of things,” says Keane. “The toe and heel are classic, but the overall silhouette is totally modern. Plus they’re really comfortable. It’s not often that you find a pair of sexy shoes you can actually walk in.”
