When the good folks at Miz Mooz contacted me to see if I'd like to do a review and giveaway, I jumped at the chance. I'd long admired the brand's style aesthetic, but never bought a pair for myself, so I was eager to check them out. I was sent this pair of Gayle boots to review and keep.*
As you can see, they're foldover style boots. The shaft hangs well below the sole, creating a silhouette similar to a pantleg. However ...
The versatile Gayles can be converted to tall boots with a quick unzip and re-zip. How fun is THAT?
The quality of these boots cannot be overstated. They are incredibly comfortable, the leather is sinfully soft, and the design is unique and fun. However, I am pretty sure that this style is designed for someone with legs longer than mine. When folded over, I need to squish the shaft down a bit or it hits my calf at its widest point, creating a strange silhouette indeed. When worn tall, the shaft actually hits just a wee bit above the knee ... not high enough for a true OTK look, but not low enough to sit quietly. Again, squishing the shaft down a bit for a scrunch look helps, but I imagined being able to wear these un-scrunched. All that said, I'm still delighted to have added them to my collection.
