Do you have knee high boots like Emma Peel?

I was a great fan of The Avengers when I was a child.

I’d never seen a woman as feisty as Emma Peel before – and it opened up my mind to what a woman could be! Here she is in her famous catsuit and knee high boots…


Wow, or what?

But at that time, I was a tomboy and did not identify with Mrs Peel, but rather John Steed…

Later on, though, in my uberfemme days, I did own a pair of my very own knee high boots.

Do you – or did you ever – have a pair of knee high boots? How do they make you feel – kickass, feminine, sexy..? Or would you never wear them?
