I have some boots that hit just below the knee. So far I've only worn them with pants, with some kind of knee-high trouser socks under them. If wearing them with a shorter skirt, obviously you don't want knee highs showing above the top of the boot. What do you wear under them (besides tights)? thanks.

Trouser socks, mostly. I have one pair that make my feet sweat more and I wear regular white "footie" socks with those.

I don't know why the socks showing would be a problem? Unless they are striped tube socks or something.

A good pair of woolen tall socks in an attractive color or pattern is perfectly acceptable - and more comfortable, IMO

I only wear tights with them. Bare legs and tall boots look okay on others, I just don't love the look on me.

I usually wear tights but if I do go bare legged, I wear taller thin cotton socks that aren't visible above the boot. I don't know what they are called but they aren't athletic socks or trouser socks and they are usually patterned.

Actually, knee high socks showing is in style. However, if you don't like them; 1) tights 2) socks that do not show.
