Q: I’ve fallen in love with some gorgeous brown knee-high boots! However, I’ve always heard that knee-high boots should fit snugly around your calves, and they are just a little bit loose around mine. What is your advice about knee-high boots?
Good and bad news for you. The bad news is that you’re right: knee-high boots should fit snugly around the calf. The good news is that you have skinny calves, which are much easier to dress than oversized calves.
Knee-high boots ideally hug your leg right underneath the knee. Since you have skinny calves, we recommend looking for boots with buckles. A buckle at the top of the boot will allow you to cinch in the top of the boot, creating that snug fit.
Have a great tip about fitting boots to your calves?
