Puniya owns six pairs of boots and is planning to get yet another pair from the tony Khan Market in Delhi. Suman, on the other hand, is seeking out a bright pair of wellies from an array of candy- red Doc Martens and suede knee-length boots and fur-fringed UGGs on display at a small store in the staunchly middle-class Sarojini Nagar market of Delhi. Bollywood might be the inspiration, says Deepak, the shop-owner, but come winter and everyone in the northern states is getting into boots—laced, buckled, printed, mottled or cobbled, fur-lined, silk-lined whatever.

Winter wardrobes are as incomplete without them as summer ones are without flip-flops or sandals. The latest trend in boots, apparently, is to go for those that are knee-high. Perhaps the cue is from Olivia Palermo, one of those fam­ous-for-being-famous celebs from the US known for strutting about in knee-high boots of various kinds.
