Duo

I'm also 5ft and their boots fit me. (And have huge calves to boot so they're fab).

These?

I have just got these and they look much nicer in the flesh - so comfy.

They also do a shorter version here and I am 5ft1, they are not too tall on me.

These Jane Shilton ones are very similar to the pair I have just worn out

Are the jane shilton not leather? the pair I had are 3 yrs old now but were definitely leather.

I will measure the Joseph Siebel ones for you - yes I have the tall ones.

Approx 34cm from footbed to top of boot I would say. Higher from top of boot to floor but the heel is a good inch or more thick if that helps. I bought mine from a real life independent shoe shop - I probably wouldn't have looked at them twice online.

I was in Jones' last week and tried on a pair similar to your perfect boots. Not sure of height, but I'm a shorty too and they were ok on me. I'll have a look on the website but no idea how to link on iPod!

According to the proper Jane Shilton site, those boots are lovely leather, the listing on Javari must be wrong. Mine were lovely but wore out after 3 yrs nearly constant wear.

Verano, height 35cms in Jones. Brown leather, flat / small heel, adjustable buckles. Sorry I can't link!

Yes they were fine in rain until they developed a hole/split about where a bunion would be, IYKWIM. They were beautiful too, lovely with skirt plus opaques, or with skinny jeans/cords.

This winter I am wearing wellies/walking boots for muddy dog walking though, while I have new boots grin

These go up to size 5

Have fun shopping smile

I had a nightmare finding boots to fit - I'm short with wide feet buy skinny calves, so anything wide enough for my freaky feet looked like my grandads waders everywhere else!! I ended up with a pair of Campers which are gorgeous.
