I'm looking for an over-the-knee boot that's got a flat or very low heel-something that's versatile that I can wear with tunics, skinny jeans, leggings and sweater dresses.

Here are the 3 I've narrowed it down to:

MIA brand:
*Least expensive of the 3. Like that it can be worn over the knee or under. Love the lace up back. Seems to be a little more casual though; not sure it would look as hot with sweater dresses??



Bakers brand:
*I think this one can be dressed up or down. Can be worn over the knee or under. Mid price range out of the 3.



Aldo brand:
*Most expensive of the 3. Seems a *little* bit better for dressy looks than casual. I think I like the look of this one the best. Unlike the other two, I don't think this one can be folded down, though, unfortunately.





^All of them are leather. I'm leaning towards the MIA one because it can be worn over the knee or under the knee (folded down), and it's the least expensive. I'm 5'1" by the way, and the last pair of over-the-knee boots I bought a few weeks ago I had to return because I have small legs and they bagged too much in the ankle. Plus they made my feet look way too long (bought them off Ebay), *and* they looked too much like "work boots":

Of the ones you pictured, the first one is my favorite.

Thanks! Do you think that one would work just as well with sweater dresses as the other two?

The 1st pair gets my vote. I'm definitely not feeling the 2nd pair.

Just curious...what is it that you don't like about the 2nd pair?

#1 or #3. the second one is just way to plain, may look better folded over. I love #1.

The sole has more of a workboot feel, but I would wear it with a sweater dress and leggings.

Don't like the first pair, the sole is too chunky. I picked the third, as I think it could be dressier or casual and if you're going to buy a pair of boots, might as well buy nice ones, right?

I don't like the ones with chunky bottoms. And the thin bottomed ones are too chunky on top.

I like:

Stuart Weitzman Mainline Black Nappa - Zappos.com Free Shipping BOTH Ways

or

Sam Edelman Pierce Black Leather - Zappos.com Free Shipping BOTH Ways

I think that last one would look amazing with jeans.
