Chelsea boots for skinny ankles

Evening everyone! I've been searching for a pair of either black or brown leather Chelsea boots since the AW stuff first came in... I have tried so many pairs but they all seem to be really baggy around my ankles! I'm wanting to wear them with tights / dresses or skinny jeans and don't want a massive gap around my ankles (already have last years ankle boots which gape, but are quite casual so I don't mind).

Has anyone found any which are narrow at the top? Thank you!

Try the clarks orinoco Chelsea boots. Come in a few different colours, very comfy and fit neatly at the ankle. I'm going to put a burgundy/dark brown pair on ebay that I've only worn once as they're half a size too small but keeping the khaki pair I got in replacement as they fit perfectly.

Ooo thank you, I saw those on the website but haven't tried them yet! What size are your ones?xxx

They are a 4 I think. They are nice.

I have these, they fit snugly around my ankles.

I am looking for exactly the same.

I spent two hours in a department store yesterday trying on boots. These fit my very slim ankles snugly - instore, they were also available in black suede.

If you're feeling flush these are beautifully constructed - no ankle flapping and fairly narrow.

Oooh they look lovely!

I want something I can just slip my feet into- the winter version of ballet flats.

Assume those toast ones would last forever

Statelychangers Sun 16-Oct-16 09:52:49

Yes they should late forever - and Cheaneys will replace the sole - if needed. They are the kind of boots I'd wear to death for years - bit like grown up Docs. Undecided but still trying to justify keeping them. grin

They are beautiful aren't they. I'm sitting here trying to justify them too ha ha!

I tried on Clarks Orinocos while DC were buying winter stuff - they are nice boots and fairly narrow but still a bit gappy. Vagabond boots leave a similar gap.

Have you tried Ted & Muffy?

I had the same problem and I bought the autograph ones from m&s and they've been great.

I often by children's boots as skinny calfs and ankles .

judybloomno5 Wed 19-Oct-16 17:43:35

My difficulty is I have size 8/9 feet and tiny, chicken leg ankles

Justaweeone I've been thinking about doing this too - where do you buy them?

justaweeone Thu 20-Oct-16 11:22:27

Lots of places- tend to have a look at all the high street stores, Clarks, Start right, Boden , even Tesco and Sainsbury's !

justaweeone Thu 20-Oct-16 11:24:15

Oh and forgot about Verbaudet and Jones the bookmakers

Thanks everyone! I ended up with some tan leather ones from New Look which were a bargain at about £40 and fit perfectly! Also got some Ugg ones in black which are a bit more like shoe boots! Xxx
