Knee high boots for short slim legs

I have been trying to replace my worn out boots for a couple of years with no success. I have even looked in children's ranges but they don't look right at all. Everything I try the calves are far too wide and the boots usually too long. I am looking for good quality black leather or suede flat or with a small heel that would look good with dresses or skirts. Any advice? I am about 5ft 2.

anotherglassofred, I ordered these yesterday. Doubtful they are leather, but they are nice and fitted for slimmer calves. Not too high and have great reviews.

Whiteskyler, I just returned a pair of these this morning. They are a lovely fit, but are very plastic-y looking. I'm not insistent on leather, but I just couldn't be doing with these.

It's a real shame, I thought they'd solve my problems, which are pretty identical to the OPs...

I am slightly shorter than you and I have these ones:

They come in slim and medium; I am a size 10 and the slim was too slim but them medium is great and although high, very very comfortable.

They stop below my knees which is great.

They're kind of hard to find but, lengthwise, mid calf boots are they way to go.

I bought mine last year from ted and muffy. The mid calf boots are knee length on me. You could probably go down a calf size because the part that is intended to cut the widest part of the calf will come up higher on your leg. Mine are a little wider at the top that I expected and I think that the reason why.

Just came across this and want to bump again! I'm having the same problem op. Every single pair I have to send back as they dig in my knee! I'm trying to find a smart black pair with a heel! Have you had any luck op?

Jones Bootmaker do quite a wide of slim fit boots .... I'll be revisiting this year to buy another pair

I have found these now which are not perfect as still slightly long and a bit of a gap around the calf but much better than anything else I have tried so far. I have tried them on but not bought yet in case I find anything better. Still looking as Ted and Muffy a little out of my price range.
