Over the Knee Boots for Short Legs

Why is it SO difficult finding boots that fit?  If you’re petite or have short legs, you know exactly what I’m talking about.  The struggle is REAL.  I know I’ve touched on this topic many times over the years but it seems to be a never ending quest to finding the perfect pair of boots.  It shouldn’t be this hard yet it seems like such an impossible task.

This is my third pair of Stuart Weitzman boots and I’m wincing as I type this because they are clearly not cheap.  I’ve been asked a million times if they are REALLY worth the splurge and honestly, I’d have to say yes.  They are one of the few boots that run very narrow – perfect for small calves and petite gals.  I’ve had my gray topo suede Highland pair for years and wear them all the time.  I never regretted paying full price for them.  If you average out all the times you wear them plus how many years you’ll have them, it doesn’t hurt as much (lol).

These Hiline over the knee boots seem to be the updated version of the Highland boots.  They changed the suede (according to the sales associate I spoke to).  It feels much softer and thicker.  Also the heel is now a curved half moon blocked heel.  They are very comfortable and yes you can walk in them for many hours.

The shaft height is slightly taller compared to the Highland boots.  There’s about a 1.5-2″ difference.  Still looks great on petite gals and definitely gives the illusion of really long legs!

Top Picks For Over The Knee Boots

If you happen to have short legs and haven’t been able to find a pair of boots, I’d recommend these.  I’d rather have a couple of great pairs of boots that are high quality and will last for many years verses a bunch of not so great boots that you only get to wear a few times.  Yes they’re an investment but one that’s worth it in the long run. 🙂

  1. I just splurged on a pair of Stuart Weitzman boots myself! I am 5′ and did not think I could wear over the knee boots, but I bought the AllJill and I love them!

  2. Had the SW highland in black for over a yr and have definitely already worn them countless times! Just ordered the hazy beige Hilines and can’t wait to get them! Honestly, they are so beautiful and comfortable, they’re totally worth the investment!!!

  3. I’m petite 5’ but my major problem is boots for skinny legs. Any hints on where to find those. My calf measures 12”. Do I need to try children’s??

  4. Hi Annie!

    I absolutely love this look. However I have a question. First off yes the OTK struggle is real for us petite gals! I’m 5’1″ and I have this same dress in XS and wanted to wear it with OTKs…….but i feel like this dress looks much longer on me. Did you have your’s altered ?

    • Hi Erica! I actually belted the dress up to make the hemline shorter to wear with OTK boots. I like the longer hemline to wear with heels but yeah it’s too long as is to wear with OTK boots. Hope this helps! 🙂

  5. Hi Annie,

    If you don’t mind me asking but how tall are you? I’m 5’1 and I’m concern the boots might go too high along the thighs. I’ve been thinking about purchasing these boots for so long so it would be greatly appreciated!

  6. Hi Annie! I just started reading your posts. I am your height, but I have thicker calves and thighs, and i have not been able to find an OTK boot that will fit for my short, muscular legs. Any idea what brand or where I can find boots that would fit? Thanks so much! Love your style!
