I'm the type that sometimes takes days to make a decision on a purchase. I did take a few days on this one but after reading all the reviews I decided to try them out. I also get rid of items in my closet that aren't absolutely perfect. These will be enjoyed this season but by next winter I'm sure I'll be rid of them. They are cute when you don't have to walk around much. But what good is an over-the-knee boot if it doesn't stay over the knee? Eventually you just look like a pirate. When my dad saw them he said I needed a sword. Also they're kind of a straight leg cut so the ankles are wide which is a look I do not favor. I thought knee high socks would help keep them up. Even wearing two on each foot didn't help. I'm 5'2 and weigh 110lbs, these did not work for me. Perhaps on thicker ladies?
