Boots for the petite

Need to replace my biker boots. What do you wear if you are less than 5'3"? I don't think knee boots suit me and I'd like something that I can wear most days but smart enough to wear with a skirt.

I wear mid shin boots with either a heel or wedge. I wear them with skinniest or a-line skirts with tights.

I am 5ft and have a problem finding good knee length boots too so watching with interest...

I've done shin boots before but don't like them as much. M and s had a fab pair last year and I wear them all the time. Should have bought black as well as brown while I had the chance!

I have these in black - I wanted boots that were calf length, leather and comfortable.,default,pd.html

I got a pair from next a couple of years ago.

I quite like these - I think the blogger is petite

I've just bought some amazing knee length boots for short arses! I'm 5ft. They're gabor ceylon boots. You can get them in slim or medium fitting and they sit perfectly on my legs rather than too close to the knee looking like wellies. Delighted!
