If you have particularly slender or particularly athletic calves please contact us so we can ensure the perfect fit. Our Lotti Elliot ankle boots are the perfect choice if you fall within this category as they suit all leg widths.

If in doubt please measure your calf using the following guide and send us your measurements so we can advise as to the best fit and style for you.

  • Sit down and place your feet flat on the floor in front of you.
  • Take a tape measure and wrap it around the widest part of your calf, taking care not to leave a gap.
  • Measure to the nearest 1cm.
The heel size is 7cm on our Vintage Collection styles Evangeline Elliot and Lotti Elliot.The heel size is 9cm on our Classic Collection styles Beatrice Elliot, Goodnight Sweetheart, and Ella Grace Elliot shoe.
There are slight variations depending on size but on average our knee high boots are 40cm high, our over the knee boots are 61cm high, and our ankle boots are 19cm.  All measurements are if standing in bare feet. If you measure up your leg in centimetres this is where the boot will sit.
