One of the problems I have with tucking jeans into boots is that the jeans always work themselves up. It is annoying. Trying to tuck jeans into pull on boots is just as difficult. The jeans always pull up and bunch up in the shaft. There is a new product called Stiruppz. Developer Lisa Church had an ingenious idea. The website tells how she came up with her idea.
Picture little suspenders that go around your foot to hold the jeans into place. (How come I never think of stuff like this?) You cuff your jeans up to adjust to get the proper tension, clip these stiruppz onto your jeans, and slip your boots on.
When I tried these, I found that they were easiest with boots that had a zipper. The reason has to do with my foot, not the product. I have a fairly high instep and big calves which makes pulling boots in a struggle. With the extra fabric around my calves, it made it more of a struggle. If you have normal to smaller calves, they would be just the ticket when pulling on your boots.
They work best when cuffed. For those like me with big calves a pair of ankle pants with Stiruppz would help if you need as little fabric as possible. You need a pair of skinny jeans. I tried these with a pair of bootcuts just for kicks. There was so much fabric I couldn’t do anything with the boots.
They are $25 and can be purchased through stiruppz.com. These are WELL made. I can imagine them lasting several seasons. Good investment.
They are a great product from a great idea.
