Another question about boots...

Right, am looking at many pairs of boots online and I have a question about measurements.

When they say the shaft (fnar fnar) measures 12", where are they taking the measurement from?

Is it from the top of the heel? Or from the floor up?

Anyone know?

I don't know, but I would also like to know the answer to this question!

I think everyone else knows, ali, and they are laughing at our ignorance.

The shaft is the bit that covers the the leg Measured from instep I think

AB - it's either that, or no-one knows but they don't want to admit it.

Choo - thank you

I like your thinking, ali, so much less embarrassing that way.

Thanks, Choo. It all makes sense now.
