Out of the Realm

I spotted these Prada boots this evening and they made me stop and ponder for a second.



I don't really like the boots themselves but I do like the boot... "garter", buckle strap... what is it called?

I know I've seen these on vintage equestrian boots... maybe even in Out of Africa... but I can't find a picture of them anywhere.

Now it's going to drive me crazy!

Anyone else know what they are called?

oh wow, i've never seen them before...the vintage version, but i wouldn't be surprised if they did exist, i was thinking about the waders this morning, perhaps an investment for the terrenial downpour we've been getting around here...

Gaiters.

See, I thought they were gaiters first two but gaiters usually buckle over the shoe, right? Or does the term work for both?

Hmmm....
