Boots for different leg shapes: How to choose the right boot

there are so many different leg shapes like boots out there

Overknee boots are not just ordinary footwear, they are a special way of expressing your style. Overknee and thigh high boots are very suitable for different leg shapes. Whether you have slim, curvy, muscular or petite legs, there are Overknee and Thigh High Boots to suit your build and flatter your figure. In this article, we’ll explore how to choose the right style of Overknee and Thigh High Boots for your leg shape and what to look out for.

1. for slim legs:

If you have slim legs, you are in the fortunate position of being able to wear almost any style of Overknee. Close-fitting boots emphasize your slender legs and add an elegant touch to your look. Choose boots with a narrow shaft and a close fit for a slim and elongated look. We recommend our Rachel Thigh High Boots, for example. This model has a narrow shaft and fits your leg like a second skin. The Overknee version also has a slim fit.

2. for curvy legs:

For curvy legs, we recommend choosing Overknee and Thigh High Boots with a slightly wider shaft. This ensures that you have enough room for your calves. Avoid boots with a shaft that is too narrow, as they can be uncomfortable, accentuate your legs in an unflattering way and you may not be able to close the zipper. Boots with elastic inserts or laces on the shaft can be a good option, as they can adapt to different leg shapes. Here we can recommend our Kim Thigh High Boots. The red band, which is inserted along the entire length of the shaft, is stretchy. This means that the boot shaft adapts very well to the shape of your leg.

3. for muscular legs:

Many of our customers exercise regularly. As a result, muscular legs are not uncommon. Depending on the type of sport, calves are often quite pronounced. In this case, it is advisable to look for boots with a shaft that is not too narrow. We have developed standard models especially for this customer group which have a little more circumference in the calf area and, in the case of long thigh high boots, at the end of the shaft. This includes our entire ANNA series in particular. We offer a total of four models of the ANNA series. Two Thigh High and two Overknee variations.

4. for petite legs:

Petite legs can benefit from boots with a slightly more voluminous shaft to create the illusion of more volume and fullness. Therefore, choose boots with details such as buckles, straps or texture to give your legs more definition. Avoid boots with an excessively wide or loose shaft width, as they can potentially make your legs look stifling. For petite legs, we always recommend our Victoria over-the-knee boots.

5. legs that require a made-to-measure bootleg fitting:

We offer a special service for all those who cannot cope with a standard boot. With the Arollo made-to-measure boot leg fitting, we modify the boot leg exactly to your measurements. In our authorized workshop, the boot shaft is adapted exactly to your measurements in 100% manual work. This gives you a boot that not only has a precise fit, but also fits you 100%.

6. general tips:

Pay attention to the height of the heel: A higher heel can visually stretch and lengthen your legs.
Choose the right length: Ideally, Overknee boots should end just above the knee to create the illusion of longer legs. Thigh High Hoots can then reach into the upper third of the thigh.
Try out different styles: Experiment with different boot shapes, materials and details to find out which style suits your leg shape best.
Overall, it’s important to find over-the-knee boots that flatter your leg shape and reflect your personal style. Our tips should help you with this.
