I bought my college aged daughter a Christmas wish list item, Over the knee boots. They were very baggy/ loose on her in the legs so we returned them. This is where the quest has begun. We can't seem to find boots that aren't too big in the legs, specifically thigh portion of the boot. She is tallish 5'9" and thin. I wouldn't say she has skiinny legs but her legs are toned and thinner. Can anyone recommend a brand of this style that runs thinner in the leg? Also do you think if we purchased the kind that draw string in at the top we would be able to have them taken in to fit? The material seems to be almost an ultra suede and rather pliable. I was thinking a shoe cobbler or even seamstress might be able to just take them in? Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

I have the same problem. Actually, a little pet peeve of mine is when I see women wearing boots that are too big around their calves. I always have to get my boots taken in if I want the proper fit. Nordstrom has some narrow options.

They're on the pricier side, but I find Stuart Weitzman tends to keep his boot shafts on the narrow side.

Yup. Good rec.

They are pricey, but you may be able to find a good sale now.

Here's a dupe for the Stuart Weitzman - Dolce Vita.

Hell of sexy boots.
I saw a pair with back half of them made out of elastic on someone. They hug.

Mine are the kind that lace up a little in the back so I can tighten them to fit my legs.

It says they are out but I saw a few more similar to those on that site. And they might be available later or somewhere else.

Boots on Zappos.com will have the calf circumference listed.

here is a search for women's over-the-knee boots on zappos: Boots, Women | Shipped Free at Zappos

If you scroll down, on the left, you can narrow the search by calf circumference size.

Thank you for the suggestions. The Stuart Weitzmans are way more than I choose to spend for such a trendy item. I'm guessing this fad will fade in the next season or so! To the poster who said they always have the boots taken in, that somewhat answered my question that it can be done! Thank you! I think that will be out easiest option without having to spend a high ticket price. College girls are brutally hard on items and they loan their things out left and right it seems. So I refuse to pay too much LOL!

Taking them in is not necessarily that cheap. Talk to a cobbler before you purchase your boots.

Too big around the calf boots is all the rage in anime.
