Over-knee boots are supposed to be elegant and sexy, right?
But if you have to spend your time pulling them up as they slide down your legs, it can ruin your look (and mood). Here are some simple and effective tips to solve this common problem and help them stay put!
ARM YOURSELF WITH NEEDLE & THREAD
It only requires basic sewing skills to sew an elastic band inside the opening of the boots. If you’re a real go-getter, you can try replacing the existing elastic with something tighter. Be sure to measure the circumference of your leg where you want the boots to hit so you use the correct amount of elastic. Find all of the basics tools you’ll need in our selection of sewing kits.
WEAR HIGH SOCKS
Wearing high socks can save your boots from slipping, depending on their size and material. The socks also provide an extra layer of warmth on cold days!
INVEST IN VELCRO
If you’re feeling particularly ambitious, you can never go wrong with velcro. Cut a strip and sew it directly onto your high socks, where the top of the boots should be. Then attach the other part of the velcro with glue (suitable for the material) or sew it inside the boots and you’re all set. Check out this video (VPN needed) for a handy tutorial on how it’s done.
If you are skilled enough for a more advanced DIY project, the best option is to mix elastic and velcro. Take a look at this tutorial (VPN needed).
If you just want an one shot solution, you can use a strong doubled-sized adhesive.
Now you can walk around and dance all day and night without having to worry about a thing!

Ovni sneakers (if you’re French), Grandpa or Dad shoes (if you’re American), or just “those big, ugly sneakers” if you’re from elsewhere in the world have made a huge comeback this past year. The alien-like sneakers you might have scoffed at several years ago are now found on the runways of Balenciaga with their Triple S model and Louis Vuitton with their LV Archelights. Nike is getting in on the action too with the comeback of their Air Max 97s (original pictured below).
While the sneakers may look like they from another planet, they aren’t without any charm. In addition to their futuristic and modern design, these shoes are just plain comfortable to wear.
