Q&A: The Correct Fit for a Knee High Boot

January 1st, 2008

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?

 Frye Tina Tall Pleated BootA: 
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?

    how about in the ankle? i can’t figure out if my boots look silly kind of baggy on the ankle. or if that’s just how boots are.

    I always have trouble fitting my jeans into my black knee-high boots. How do I snugly fit them in?
