How to Measure for Tall Boots

When measuring for tall boots, we recommend that you have someone help you do your measurements to ensure accuracy. Ideally measure in the same increments (inches or centimeters) as the size chart for the style of boot you are considering for a more accurate result.  If unsure of brand, we recommend you measure in centimeters. 

Tall Boot Measurements

A.  Determine your foot size. If in US sizes, that's pretty straight forward. If however it is in European sizing that can be a little trickier. Alot of boots have both listed in their size chart so check your current boots for a conversion. Unfortunately not all brands do the conversion the same. As a baseline, I'm an 8 1/2 in most brands and a 39 European. If you find you are in between sizes, most models come with an additional footbed that can be removed to give you that little bit of extra room

B. Measure around the widest part of your calf with a tape measure. Check the calf in a few places on each leg and determine the widest measurement. Be sure that the tape is horizontally even while doing the measurement. This will be your calf measurement

C. While sitting in a chair with your feet flat on the floor, measure from the back of the knee to the floor. Add 2 cm for the drop on a soft boot and 1-1.5 cm for drop on a dressage style with hard sides. This will be your height measurement

Refer to the Size Chart for your desired boot to find the size to the nearest 1 cm.  If you size is not available, many of the higher end boots do offer Made to Measure boots for an additional fee.
