    Looking at knee high boots. Are ones with the zip in the back OR the side easier to get on? Also, what about the ones that just zip a bit down the center of the side? Examples below. Not necessarily ones I'm looking at just the first I could quickly link.

    Ladies, you should link some boots that work well. Where is WTF?
    Ugh the sexy one's have heels that suck wearing on a footplate and promote footdrop. fml

      I am 37 and i don't wear over the knee boots. I also don't shop at forever 21. I prefer clothing from Ann Taylor are more along the conservative line. I am sorry I believe 50 Is Definitely too old for over the knee boots regardless of your body type. But that's just my opinion.

        I appreciate your opinion. Am still giving these boots the side-eye. They are fine when rolled down tho.

          I just got some nearly knee high boots at goodwill the other day. I want to wear them with a dress or skirt and leggings. They have big heels which I'd never been able to wear before, but hey I'm not going to be walking in them!

            Don't buy boots with the zip behind or the ones with the zip down, they are too hard to put on, even I have trouble with those.

              I've seen boots that zip completely down the back...to the sole. That would be the best. You would just put your foot in and slide forward. Unfortunately most that zip down the back stop before the sole and you're still trying to force your heel in.

              Anyways...I found a pair. Hope they work.

              I'm jealous of the women here that can move their feet. Makes shoes a hell of a lot easier to get on when you can flex/move your feet/toes etc.

                It is different style here but I bought these this year and the zip is behind and I need help to get the zip up.



                I have exactly the same boots knee high with the zip on the inside and they are easy to put on.

                  Have my eye on a pair that zip down to the sole as well .. I have to be really careful with my heels so I haven't purchased yet. Need to be careful with my wallet too jeez!

                    With closed toe shoes, I usually go a size up. The size bigger shoe enables my foot to slide in without curling. I prefer high heel boots over flats but I have seen some cute riding boots out there. My dad just gave me my christmas present (money) so I bought these super high ankle boots, that will go great with skinny jeans.

                      I bought these today for more casual wear [they look cuter in person]. will get knee highs next, clarks had some really nice ones and some come in wide widths.

                        I got my boots. They are 18" and go to my knee. Hope they don't leave marks behind my knee as it's very close. Only bummer is the ankle part looks a little baggy when sitting and how feet are positioned/angled slightly up on footrest. Circumference is great though at less than 14" around.

                        Not sure what to do about the ankle part as don't want to look stupid. At least they won't be rubbing. I'll try them out for a bit.

                            It's hard for me to find boots that will work though! Most narrow calf boots are a lot more than that and you can find few. I'm probably 5'11 and a lot of leg. 36" inseam jeans. If these work I'll at least have them forever. Probably won't go out of style either and won't wear them out walking. Idk though. Always searching for the perfect fit. With free 2 day shipping and returns it makes trying shoes easy.

                              Those are AWESOME! I love that big toe box, that's the key to comfort for me. I agree-we won't wear them out. They're an investment.
