"They make you feel taller and thinner and smarter and cooler, like your whole leg is one spring-loaded force."

Power boots are in. Should we credit Condi?

Only if we're also willing to give Al Gore credit for the internet.

I don't think women are honest when it comes to their shoes. They always say the most torturous looking things imaginable are comfortable. This can't be true. And these boots, I don't know, they couldn't be very comfortable and who would want sweaty feet, ankles and calves in warm weather? Well, they would be easy to take r off, sort of just slide off along with a cup of sweat - ewww

I agree with all the above. Anyway, it gives conservatives a menacing look on their way to taking over the world, don't you think?

I seem to remember that boots of this style (at least some of those pictured in the article)were in fashon in the 80's, maybe late 70's. Maybe it was just here in Minnesota in the winter.

The thing that struck me about that look was that those boots sort of looked like mens sox that had fallen down, which struck me as being a silly.

Although something of a clotheshorse, I could never talk myself into wearing boots and certainly not in the summertime. I especially detest the over-the- knee boots that were popular 2 fall seasons ago; they remind me too much of Julia Roberts in "Pretty Woman." Heart of gold or not, a hooker is still a hooker.
I'm really surprise some lefty hasn't posted about how boots will make Republicans like Condi Rice look like the goose-stepping Gestapo and how appropriately that imagery fits.

Clearly from a cold climate. You definately don't see a lot of boots in Phoenix in the summer.
