Some tall black boots are sexy. Some tall black boots are functional. It can be difficult for some women with slim legs to find a narrow boot with a good fit that covers both bases. The Geox Women’s Felicity Lace-Up Back is one of those rare models that does just that. This good looking black leather boot has a great shape with its small heel, pointed toe and long shaft. It also promises to be comfortable with a great fit.
This Felicity boot does something that other brands may not think of.
There are lots of ways that shoe makers can adapt the design of their footwear to provide a better fit on narrow calves and an easier experience. Elasticated panels can help, but they can take something away from a luxurious leather look. Zippers are helpful, but they can draw the eye a little too much on some models. This Felicity boot is a little different as it as a has paid close attention to the design of the zipper and added something new. The zip runs the full length of the 15.75 inch shaft and matches in to the dark black upper. This means there should be no problem getting it on and off your foot. The star of the show, however, is the use of the lacing at the back. This lacing can be tightened around the calves to provide more secure, adaptive fit. It is reminiscent of the corset, which immediately gives this boot a much sexier look. The one problem with this fit is that it doesn’t run true to size. Interestingly the brand themselves have noted this and are advising women to order a size up from their usual size.
The fit is important with this boot as it allows women to add some shape to their skinny calves and increases comfort levels.
Comfort is something that is seen a lot by buyers of these attention-seeking narrow boots. Not only are they able to “hug” the wearer’s leg, there is the added bonus of the leather linings, moisture control in both the footbed and outsole and lots of cushioning. This means that the boots are soft, dry and welcoming no matter how late in the day it is. There is even a decent amount of arch support. When all of this is combined, it is easy to see why many women are happy to rely on these tough, attractive, comfortable Geox Women’s Felicity Lace-Up Back boots for long-term wear.
