Simple and casual serves a purpose, but sometimes it’s just not enough. Fall fashions and social needs can be demanding. When specific moments call for serious sex appeal, nothing comes close to the look or feel of tall boots. But finding narrow boots for thin legs can be an expensive challenge. Reasonably priced boots generally cater to 15– 15 1/2 inch calves. And while that works well for athletic builds, small legs wind up swimming in the monstrosities. The only real way to guarantee fit and quality is to go the designer route.
But even the slightest preliminary search for designer quality skinny fall boots will turn up high end price tags. You shouldn’t have to pay in excess of $1,000 for a seasonal staple that will work for your specific needs. And now you don’t have to. When you have very specific names, a little splurge goes a long way. It’s now completely justifiable to splurge on the high end names without having to drain your bank account. How so? Check out the following affordable tall boots for small calves and see for yourself.
Knee High Boots for Slender Legs
Fyre Women’s Parker Tall Lace Up Boot
The Fyre Women’s Parker Tall Lace Up Boot is one of those knee high boots that just seems to go on forever with its wonderful curving ascent from the toe to the top of the boot – reaching 17” from the arch – and its substantial 3.5” heel. Ordinarily, these sorts of tall shoes for long legs do not suit women with thin calves because they just skew all proportions; here, the use of the highly attractive lace-up fastening on the front aids with the shaping and fit to give skinnier girls the style they want without feeling like they are the wrong shape. Not only does this approach give wearers style, it makes the boot more adjustable and buyers are creating a snug feel with both tights and jeans, making these boots suitable for both office and casual situations.
Blondo Women’s Frida Riding Boot
The Blondo Women’s Frida Riding Boot is clearly designed for a great fit for women with skinny calves; not all boots of this height are suitable but the use of elastic goring on the calves helps considerably. This goring and the soft lining lead to a pretty comfortable fit and, unlike other brands that put the style first, there is plenty of padding and grip for walking. Each of the three color choices of this dress boot , the honey brown, black and burgundy are labelled as “antiqued”. This means there is a hint of wear and age to the boots that moves away from the shiny leather of other knee high options and brings in a different type of style that buyers really appreciate. The boots look loved and this is clearly the case with the majority of buyers.
La Canadienne Women’s Kit Boot
The La Canadienne Women’s Kit Boot is an Italian-led Canadian-boot that really tries to tick all the right boxes when it comes to comfort, style and fit. Fit is the most crucial of all for many buyers trying to hide their thin calves, and the slim opening of 14 inches does a great job of hugging calves in the right places. As for the comfort, not only are they made from fine Italian leather, there is a memory foam insole for greater support while walking and working and a breathable, antibacterial lining to protect against heat and odor. Finally there is the style and this black or moka boot has an elegant shape with a tapered 2.75” heel and smart buckle on the ankle.
Nicole Women’s Smoothy 2 Riding Boot
The tapering shape of the Nicole Women’s Smoothy 2 Riding Boot suggests that it may not be the best boot for women with narrow calves as it certainly looks wider at the top that the bottom; however, with an opening of just 14.25” in circumference, they can offer a snug fit in the right places and ensure that women get the look they want. This style is accentuated through the two different color choices – a smart black that highlights the look of the 100% leather materials and a light brown called “brown sugar” that highlights the curves. There are seen as perfectly minimal in style – little more than a zipper to make them stand out – and they offer great comfort and waterproofing for a reliable, everyday boot.
Steve Madden Odessey Women’s Boot
The Steve Madden Odessey Women’s Boot is a long, tall boot that will help women truly make the most of their long legs with the over-the-knee style and reasonable 2.75” heel. Additionally, the boot opening has a circumference of 14” so fits really well around skinny calves – no tell-tale gaps that ruin the shape of your legs. This tight fit means that they are best used over tights but this is great for skirt-wearers in an office environment. Available in either black or brown man-made leather, these Steve Madden boots can provide a smart option for more professional situations. They may not have the feel of the real thing but they are still stylish, adaptable and offer a great fit.
