Ever since Michelle Obama wore those iconic Balenciaga metallic thigh-high boots during her book tour for Becoming last year, I’ve been desperate for a pair of my own. The thing is, as you might imagine, I’ve got literally zero places to wear golden, glittery over-the-knee stiletto boots. I also don’t have $3,400 laying around to devote entirely to a pair of shoes, albeit incredible ones.

Enter: These gorgeous Stuart Weitzman Zuzanna Over the Knee Boots (which just so happen to be discounted by almost $300 during Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale). These classic black stretch suede boots rise just above the knee with a nondescript lace to cinch the top as you see fit. I’m also partial to the stitching detail down the middle, which adds a little texture. While the thick, stacked heel isn’t Michelle Obama-worthy height, it is ideal for someone like me who walks a lot and doesn’t go on glamorous book tours but still wants to look good.

Take it from Kate Middleton, who does plenty of walking to and from appearances, and fancies Stuart Weitzman, big-time. On more than one occasion, Middleton has proven tall boots with substantial heels are the perfect match for any ensemble, including hunter green sports coats, A-line dresses, long plaid skirts and so much more. It’s a winning silhouette the duchess returns to again and again.

The best part about these Stuart Weitzman boots? You can choose your calf circumference, so your leg doesn’t get stuck inside (though if you end up wearing these forever, you’ll be in good company).
