Decent knee high boots for narrow calves?

The heel musn't be any higher than 4cm as I'm quite tall. My calves are 13 inches wide.
I found quite a nice pair from next but they are a bit loose.
Any suggestions?

Try duo. Well worth the money.

I do wish slim calves was the reason I need Duo (43cm!)

LK Bennett are good for slim calves

I have the same problem

I keep posting this so sorry if I sound like a broken record but

I think Duo boots are great if you have medium to larger calves - but if you have really slim calves Duo put a pleat at the top of the boot to narrow it down and they don't change the rest of the styling - and it all ends up looking a bit odd but this is only my personal opinion!!

I second duo- I bought the Florence boot which fits like a glove. (slim calves)

Another one for Duo - iirc they tell you the heel height on the styles too.

I have to take the smallest size on their boots and think they are fab. Anything not to look like I haven't raided the dressing up box.

I think there was a free p&p code posted recently....

found it

AW09 it was posted on 23 Sept as one week only but worth seeing if it still works.

i think you are wrong. i have no pleat in mine

No pleat in mine either- got 3pairs.

You do need to choose a style that suits anrrowlegs as some look as if they are meant for wider legs.
I like Kirov & Oristano, and Etienne is nice but was too wide round ankles for me.

OK - I obviously chose the wrong style which was too "highwayman-ish" at the top ....

Will re-investigate ...
