Mid-calf boots are perfect for layering, wear them with your skinny jeans tucked in or woolly tights and dresses for a cosy and stylish look. A mid-calf boot with a short heel will not only help to elongate your leg but will give you a comfortable boost to your height, and slouch boots will help to balance out wider silhouettes.
It’s fair to say, when it comes to shopping online for boots it’s not a one size fits all purchase, there’s so much to consider, from how they look, how comfortable they feel and of course, how they fit across your calf.
Step 1: Take a tape measure and sit with your feet flat on the floor and your knees at a 90-degree angle.
Step 2: Wrap the tape measure around the widest part of your calf, making sure the tape is taught and not tight. Don’t forget to measure each of your calves, as they can differ in size.
Think about how you will wear your new boots, if you plan to wear them over your jeans or trousers, put them on as you measure for an accurate fit.
