When it comes to women’s riding boots, it seems as though every designer and manufacturer has their “It” boot of the season. But if you have skinny legs, you’re more likely to swim in them than wear them. The rain galoshes effect on thin legs is all too common with high end boots designed for athletic builds. Fortunately, there are some modern options that are gorgeous, relatively affordable, and made specifically for your needs. Check out the following best riding boots for narrow calves.
Tall Riding Boots for Slim Legs
Timberland Women’s Savin Hill Tall Boots
Timberland’s Earthkeeper Savin Hill riding boot combines a modern appearance with serious comfort. They’re earth friendly since they’re made with recycled, renewable, and organic materials. The leather upper is available in two color options for easy styling.
The 13.75 inch shaft and 14 inch circumference hug your slender legs, but they do stretch and come in wider widths for more athletic builds. Simple buckle adornments, cushioned footbed, and a 1 inch heel make this a classy go to boot for practically any need.
Naturalizer Women’s Jamison Riding Boots
Jamison is just one of those boots that happen to be perfect right from the beginning. The rich leather upper is available in medium brown, dark brown, or black to accompany an assortment of fashions. The 16.25 shaft easily accommodates taller ladies.
Simple buckle adornments help the gore back panels fit the 14 inch slim calf fitting boots to your legs. 1 inch grip heel and patterned synthetic sole on these true-to-fit boots ensure you’ll stay on your feet while wearing them.
Franco Sarto Women’s L-Canyon Riding Boots
These all leather Franco Sarto riding boots for narrow calves are stunning from top to bottom. Top stitched section has a hidden gore insert and a detailed embossed crest. A narrow leather piping runs down the outer length of the boot, giving it a gorgeous silhouette.
Three color options; including black, black with an acorn top and piping, or brown with an acorn top and piping, offer fun solutions to your style demands. The 16 inch shaft keeps the cuff right under the knee, while the 14.5 inch circumference and full length zipper ensure a snug fit. These do tend to run very small, so if there’s anyway to try before buying be sure to do that.
Nine West Women’s Bridge Riding Boot
Ask any fashionista and she’ll tell you the name Nine West is synonymous with style and quality. This is especially true in their boot lines, and the Nine West Women’s Bridge Riding Boot doesn’t need to walk miles to prove the point. Three different color options allow even the pickiest stylists to accessorize without fuss. Full grain leather uppers with buckle details combine class and sass. Back stretch gore panel aids in providing the proper fit. At size 8, the 16 inch shaft comes just to the knee, while the boot opening expands to allow up to 14” calves. Of course, the circumference can be wider or more narrow as your personal foot size varies. Full-length inside zipper offers easy access, and the lightly treaded sole ensures continual safety.
Freebird Women’s Wyatt Harness Boot
Take a walk on the wild side with Freebird Women’s Wyatt Harness Boot. These fashion-forward riding boots combine a retro-steampunk-rockabilly look that can only be described as “yowsa”! Beautiful, buttery-soft uppers come in black or cognac to match your style and mood. Shaft height measures 14.5 – 16” depending on shoe size, and the circumference averages 14”. Slim legs get the most out of these unique riding boots as the instep zipper and outside laces work together to provide a tailored fit. These do run a bit snug, so thin legs will appreciate the skin-tight feel as opposed to the typical swimming sensation. Pointed toe, 2.5” stacked heel, and leather sole embossed with the Freebird logo make these boots, and the lady who wears them, at least look as though they’re born to be wild.
Donald J Pilner – DELA Riding Boot
Feminine fun and a fabulous vintage feel combine for a full-on fashion fiesta in this Donald J Pilner – DELA Riding Boot. The luxurious suede upper comes in three color options for easy and fun accessorizing. The expresso shimmer is closer to a black color with a lighter shimmery pattern atop as opposed to the saturated brown suede that shows in the picture. It’s still gorgeous, nonetheless. The black vintage suede is black throughout with a dappling “cow” effect. And the olive vintage is a unique dappled or marbled pattern suede for the most daring fashionista. 15-17” shaft and 14” average circumference cater to the thin or small calf. Outer zipper, adjustable vamp and ankle buckles, semi-covered 2” stacked heel, and lightly scalloped vamp only add to the appeal of this high-fashion riding boot.
Earth Women’s Sequoia Riding Boot
If you’ve been searching for an on-trend moto boot that is comfortable, durable, and designed specifically for narrow or slim calves, your search can stop right here. Earth Women’s Sequoia Riding Boot comes in taupe or black tumbled leather to accompany an array of styles or fashion needs. Two narrow strips in the back of the boot provide stretch gore fabric that aid in a proper fit. 14.25” shaft sets the boot just inches under the knee, and the boot opening fits up to 14.5” calves. Full inside zipper helps with easy access, and the textile interior lining helps keep feet and legs cool and dry. Multi-density PU foot bed with built-in arch support provides all-day comfort. And the lug design tread ensures safety and security regardless of terrain.
Blondo Women’s Verga Boots
When women want high quality fashion footwear that offers easy care and serious durability, smart ladies choose Blondo. The Blondo Womens Verga Boots are one of the hottest models for the upcoming fall boot season. Available in black only, these unusual but trendy riding boots have a combined leather and synthetic upper that is completely waterproof for even the wettest or coldest days. The quilted-style upper is somewhat stretchy to fit properly, but the boot itself is actually quite solid. Ankle strap and buckle detail and leather half cuff at the top of the 16” shaft are the main adornments on these knee boots. Full inner zipper helps secure the 14.25” boot opening around small legs. Round toe, flexible grip sole, and 1.25” heel make these comfort walkers a keeper. They do tend to run a bit small in the feet, however, so consider ordering a half size up from your norm.
Blondo Women’s Enya Riding Boot
Another perfect Blondo selection for fall is the Blondo Women’s Enya Riding Boot. Made of leather and ruched gore that provides a quilt style in the 14” shaft, these modern classic riders make you stand out in a crowd without cramping your style or your feet. Somehow Blondo came up with three different shades of black for these beauties, so take your pick to fit your fashion needs. Real leather is always exceptionally breathable, and this is also waterproof to extend the durability and ease care needs. A simple buckle accent is the only adornment needed. Circumference on these boots is 13.5” at size 7.5, but that can change slightly depending on your shoe size. Like most Blondo models, these do run small, so opt for a half size larger. Full inner zipper helps with the perfect fit. Lightly cushioned insole, classic 1.5” riding boot heel, and flexible grip sole will keep you reaching for these boots all season long.
Cole Haan Women’s Dutchess OTK Motorcycle Boot
A modern high-end designer motorcycle boot can be the perfect fit to your fall fashion needs. Cole Haan Women’s Dutchess OTK Motorcycle Boot proves this upon first sight.

Cole Haan tackled that concern by incorporating a simple 1” heel into these black leather, pull-on motorcycle boots. The extended shaft measures 20-23” inches, depending on personal size, while the circumference averages 14”. Full textile back panel provides a slight give to guarantee a tailored fit, and simple gold hardware at the top of the shaft finishes off the look. Padded insole and rubber sole ensures comfort and security for continued confidence and control.
