Unfortunately I find most of the M & S ones are so wide they flap around my legs. Anyone got any recommendations? Not too pricey though. Ta

I've bought some from Dune that were a good fit, I also find M&S baggy.

I have tiny, skinny calves and I really struggle to get knee highs which don't have a gap of about two inches.
I usually search on debenhams website and read the reviews.

Jones the boot maker do slim fit but they can be pricey worth looking on their website in their outlet though x

I have skinny calves but found LK Bennett fit me really well. I have the "Belle Suede" and they are on offer at the moment. A little expensive but are lasting me well.

The only ones that fit really skinny calves are the stretch suede boots at LKBennett, Peter Kaiser and Robert Clergerie, and even then you may need to get them taken in by a good cobbler, depending on your calf size.

They're not cheap but they do last, and at least they fit.

Don't bother doing the rounds of the high street, I've done it all to death many times.

Jones bootmaker slim fit are fairly large, and someone will recommend Duo or the rebranded site, but their boots only go down to 30 cm calf size.
(Mine are 28 cm so they're no good to me).

Have been doing the same search as i find most boots gape at the top and then I discovered- Asda - their leather riding boots fit snugly and are only £45.

Thanks so much for all your suggestions.

Jones The Bootmaker.

As the owner of huge feet but slim legs, I have trouble with the legs of boots being too wide normally but Jones boots are slim fitting so worth the money in my opinion.

After decades of searching, the only brands I've had any success with are Aldo or (but only in a small number of styles, eg the slim fit ones or the riding boot style) Jones.

Fly London fitted mine. First High St ones to ever do so!

Mine are 34 cm iirc and I have very slim ankles and long, narrow feet. I have two fab pairs from The Bootmakers. A pair of fairly inexpensive Botas de Valverde riding boots also fit well.

I tried Duo but they just didn't fit very well. I got mine from LK Bennett in the end, pricey but I'll wear them to death

Duo boots (no Ted & Muffy) let you order boot Height and calf width. They are pricey though.

River Island! I was in there today, feeling envious of slim calved women stupid bloated pregnancy legs and all the beautiful boots they could buy from there.

MrsUltracrepidarian Thu 01-Oct-15 17:54:54

Will check out Aszda tomorrow! Always have this problem - great if it is fixed...

MaryMarigold Thu 01-Oct-15 20:21:01

Just wanted to say thank you to all those recommending Jones. Got the Palomina-S there today after reading this thread and they are fab. Got 25% off too. There's an online code for 25% off until tomorrow - VC25. Happy days...

Russell and Bromley also have a great selection but they are pricey. I have a pair of leather knee high boots from there and they are very comfy and fit my slim calves well.

I got me the Raymona boot from Amazon, its cheap and if lasts me a year, its money well spent. It is a real hassle to buy boots online, especially with slim legs legs like mine. Many times I have ended up buying boots where my legs are either swimming in them or there is a big gap at the top. If its any help, you can look up the blog - calfhuggingboots.com. It has come cute styles for slim legs.
