First Tall Boots - yay or nay?

Options
I've never been able to wear tall boots from a store, but since they are "trendy" I got a pair from zappos. What do you think? Normally I'm more of a jeans and tshirt type of girl but I would like to be able to wear skirts in the cold NYC winter.

Should I return or keep? I'm not 100% sure I have the confidence to wear these in public.

    Agreed! I love my tall boots but like them a little snugger at the top. Otherwise, you could totally carry them off!:smile:

    As someone with gigantic muscular calves who can never find tall boots that fit - rock that pair!!

    On that note - if someone knows where I can find some that fit (without gross looking elastic) hook a girl up =)

    Yeah.. they are definitely a little loose at the top. The problem is that I have really wide calves (16") so I need to buy wide calf boots to have them fit and can therefore only buy on zappos for the most part.

    I'm a fan of the look in general, but not a fan of the fit of your boots. Sorry! I'd say, return and look for a smaller calf opening.

    With this particular pair I'd say wear them with skinny jeans (if you can pull off skinny jeans, I cannot). The leg opening is a bit loose for a skirt. They would also be a bit too bulky to wear under bootcut jeans (my usual way to wear tall boots).
    Generally I prefer a little more heel but I'm also 5'1" so I'm always looking for ways to look taller.

    First of all....you look beautiful :smile: They are a little wide at the top, if you are feeling a little self conscious about them try them out with some black stockings, will make your legs look longer :wink:

    I think they look great! What's not to like? Personally, I think they fit fine at the top...it's stiff leather, so it doesn't look like they'll slouch down or anything.

    I have about a half a dozen pair of tall black boots of varying heels and tightness. The looseness doesn't bother me, especially as you say you need the wider calf opening. I would go with black tights with your skirt. It will make the opening less noticable and pull the look together more. Being a NEw England girl, I love my nice thick tights with my boots. Enjoy them!

    I love Zappos! Your boots look great. It's not a big deal that they're loose at the top, lots of boots look like that. Plus you have a little more room if you wear them with tights or leggings or jeans. They are very cute. I remember my first pair of tall boots... I just wore my riding boots from when I was a teenager and I was thrilled that my calves fit :P I love them with the skirt, great classic look.
