How ong should 7/8 trousers be?

I'm 5 foot 7 and in Boden a regular full length trouser fits me perfectly. Just ordered some 7/8 in the recent promo (also in regular) and I'm not convinced they don't just look as if they have shrunk in the wash - they are a fair bit longer than I expected. I've got them on with slip on trainers, and they are just touching the top of the trainer at the back - not the shoe itself but that soft notch thing a lot of trainers have at the heel. At the front you can see a bit of skin above my shoe, but not masses. Certainly not a full ankle. They'd probably look better with heels, but that's not an option. Is this right?

I think they should hit the top of the ankle bone

Agree with Cardoon about them just hitting top of ankle bone. In other words should be 'ankle grazers'.

Hmm. I think I may have to have them taken up an inch then.
