I would highly recommend checking out at least the first two styles below for taller yet petite-friendly luxury boots. Each of these recommendations are currently well stocked and available in a wide range of extended sizes (starting in sz 4!).
Knee-High Boots (sizes 4 – 12)
Stuart Weitzman Livia below the knee boots
Style: heeled, hits below the knees even on petite ladies!
Sizes 4 – 12
Listed with a 13.5″ shaft high and 12″ calf opening with stretch panel. A rare petite-friendly, below the knee luxury suede boot for those who prefer this height to OTK. I’ve tried this on in store before and it was a good fit on me throughout.
Stuart Weitzman Mainline knee-high wedge boots
Style: hidden wedge; hits just above the kneecap on someone my height.
Sizes 4 – 10.5
Listed with a 19.5″ shaft height and 13″ circumference. As mentioned in a previous post, these are an old favorite petite-friendly style that I have from many years ago (see the leather version on me). The hidden wedge adds a little boost while still being walking friendly for around the city, and the shaft height comes up just to the top of my knees.
Over-The-Knee Tall Boots
Stuart Weitzman Darla suede OTK boots
Style: 2.5″ block heels; mid-thigh height boot.
Sizes 4 – 11.
Listed with a 23.5″ shaft height and 13″ calf circumference, these would hit well over the knee, closer to mid thigh on someone petite.
Stuart Weitzman Gillian suede boots (also in leather)
Style: 2.25″ block heels; hits slightly above the knees on someone my height.
Sizes 5 – 10.
Listed with a 20.5″ shaft height and 13″ calf circumference, these are an in-between tall height – a little taller than the Mainline, but not as tall as SW’s usual over the knee style boots.
Ankle & Mid-Calf Boots
Stuart Weitzman suede mid calf booties
Style: 2.5″ block heels; 7″ taller ankle shaft height.
Sizes 5 – 10
Karl Lagerfeld suede ankle booties
Style: Classic pointy toe but rounded off ankle booties with back zipper.
Sizes 5 – 11
An underrated brand of shoes that in my opinion are good quality for the price points! Mine are the very similar prior year version, and I really like them for comfort and how well they’ve held up after walking around the city.
