Boots designed for horseback riding or other equestrian activities that are usually knee high and made of leather. Although they originally were designed with heels to prevent the boots from slipping out of the stirrup, modern riding boots usually have low heels. Recently the style has been used in fashion boots, which generally have no functional value, but offer a similar look and feel.
Ros Hommerson World I can finally wear knee high boots!

I have large calves (17") and have never been able to find knee high boots that I could wear but now I finally can! I am a size 7 1/2 but the 7 1/2 was too tight in the foot, so I ordered an 8 1/2 afraid that the 8 might not be big enough. They are a little big I probably could have gotten an 8 and they would have been fine. The boots are very comfortable, I wore these all day walking around and no blisters. The leather is very supple - good quality. I was feeling guilty about paying as much for them as I did but they were TOTALLY worth it!
