Episode 14 was full of blood and gore, with werewolves dying right and left. Guess they didn’t call it “Crying Wolf,” for nothing, right? Lucky for us, there was a good dose of fashion as well! We couldn’t take our eyes off the brown leather over-the-knee boots that Elena wore, especially when they were wrapped around Stefan’s torso... but we digress.

These boots are everything you want in a shoe: comfortable (they have a small heel), practical (they can be worn with just about anything), and totally chic. We love the buttons down the side, a salute to this fall’s military trend. Those buckles are awesome as well.

When over-the-knee boots came into vogue a few years back, we weren’t convinced they’d last more than a season, and we certainly weren’t up for trying them ourselves. Flash forward to the present, and our over-the-knee boots are a wardrobe staple. Who knew?!

It’s the perfect time of year to pick up a pair of boots, as many stores clear them out for spring merchandise. Elena’s exact pair is by Sam Edelman, and normally costs $300. We found them on sale at bloomingdales.com for $210.

If you’re willing to settle for black, and don’t mind purchasing a final sale item, you can score these boots for $150:

Still not in your budget? We found this doppleganger pair for $29.97. Also a final sale item, and missing the buttons, but still featuring those buckles. And you can’t beat that price. What are you waiting for? Grab yourself a pair of boots before they’re gone!
