Sale: Stuart Weitzman boots for narrow or short calves

Stuart Weitzman Tieland boots sz 5 (similar SW boots on sale), Ted Baker wool coat sz 0 (sleeves shortened), Zella live in leggings xxs, Ann Taylor sweater (similar), Bric’s luggage on sale!, Goyard tote

If you’ve been waiting to get your first pair of Stuart Weitzman boots or to add to your collection … there’s a big sale going on right now with several good styles to choose from! SW is the best I’ve found for narrow calves, and most of the styles will stretch to accommodate more muscular legs as well. Note that if you have super slim calves, the best way to keep boot shafts from falling down while you walk is to wear thicker knit tall boot socks underneath to add “traction. I wanted to review some sale styles for you guys, and have assigned the calf fit into two general categories (for reference, my calf circumference is about 12” around):

Slim: grazes my calves in a thicker suede or leather (example: the 50/50); or
Very Slim: fitted on my calves in stretchy pull-on suede with no zipper (example: Lowland / Hiline)

Stuart Weitzman Kneezie suede knee high boot slim calf petite

Stuart Weitzman Kneezie boot (select the black color to see all sizes available!), Kate Spade coat xxs (similar)
Shaft height: 15.5″ right at my lower knee
Calf fit: Very slim (size 5 has a calf 12″ circumference) pull-on style with no zipper

1. Stuart Weitzman Kneezie boot (select the black  color to see sizes avail.)
This is a sleek below-the-knee boot with almond toes that fits both circumference and height-wise on petite legs! These are described to be the same as Stuart Weitzman’s popular Lowland boot (see them on me) but with a lower shaft. Over-the-knee styles are definitely a little more fashion-forward and not office appropriate, so these are a classic alternative that could be more versatile, depending on your style needs.

Stuart Weitzman Highline boots on narrow legs petite

Stuart Weitzman Hiline boot – 4″ block heel with almond toe
Shaft height: 22″ hits like this at my mid-thighs
Calf fit: Very slim pull-on style with no zipper

2. Stuart Weitzman Hiline Boots (select the black & brown colors to see sizes avail.)
The Hiline replaced the Highlands, for those of you who are familiar with that older staple style! I noticed two small differences – the block heel is a little more chiseled in shape on the current Hilines, also the fit is a little more true to size with their other boots, in my opinion. I’m usually between a 5 and 5.5 in all shoe brands, and I fit a 5 in the new Hilines along with all of the other styles reviewed in this post. The Lowland and Hiline very rarely go on sale in classic colors, so don’t miss out if you’ve been eying them!

Stuart Weitzman Alljack suede boots narrow slim calves

Stuart Weitzman AllJack boot – 3.25″ block heel with almond toe, Kate spade bow coat 00
Shaft height: 18.5″ just above the knee
Calf fit: Slim (under 13″ circumference) with partial zipper

3. Stuart Weitzman AllJack boot (similar Lowjack)
If you’re not sold on over-the-knee styles that hit taller around the thighs, the Alljack is a beautiful alternative that hits just over the knees. It’s suede with a stretchier back suede panel, and comfortable, walking-friendly mid-height block heels.

Stuart Weitzman All Jill Knee High suede boots petite narrow legs

Stuart Weitzman AllJill boot – 4″ block heel with almond toe
Shaft height: 18.5″ Just above the knee
Calf fit: Slim (under 13″ circumference) with partial inner zipper

4. Stuart Weitzman AllJill boot (no longer available)
These are basically the Hiline boots but with the “just above the knee” shaft with partial zipper. These are very flattering and easy to get on and off if you don’t want to deal with pull-on styles!

    I have a question as a fellow petite girl. (5’3”)

    I recently received the Stuart Weitzman Tieland boot in the Rose color (size 7B) they are a bit looser around my ankle and right behind my knee than I expected. I have the 50/50 (size 6.5) and it fits very slimly without bunching at all anywhere. I was wondering if that’s just the style of these boots and to be expected? Or if it’s more of a sizing issue? So do you think these boots are supposed to be a bit looser looking? I noticed in most of the photos I’ve seen they do look that way. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks so much!

    The OTK boots have been on my wish list for awhile now. But I have always been on the fence. Not only am I short but my legs are muscular in ways that can look wrong or fit uncomfortably in the “wrong” type of shoes. I kept notes on based your recommendation on which shoe to try. I’ll keep you posted on how it worked out.

    hi Jean. great post on these boots. i ordered myself the lowlands in size 4.5 and they fit great!!! im 4’11” and they are just the right height. i also just got in the highland boots in size 4.5. man those are snug even with the thinner socks. i could not get out of them from my ankle. from all the reviews i went down half a size since i can wear between 4-5 size. i ended up ordering a size 5 and hoping to compare the 2 sizes when it comes in. anyone else have the same issue?

    Thank you for your reviews on these boots. When wearing thigh high boots like the Hiline, Highland, and Lowland, how high do you think it’s appropriate to still look classy and tasteful. I am 4’11 so about 1-2 inches shorter than you. I just bought the Highland and found that it it’s a bit too “thigh high” for me. It may be because I’ve never worn boots that high, but it’s also because it really is too high on me. I love how they look on you and bother women though. Should i keep or return? Please share your opinions! =) thanks Jean!

    Hi Jean, I’m about to order my first OTK boots and I just need some advice, I am 4’7, about 110lb (i’m thick), I usually wear a size 5 in most brands and I just need to know if a 23 inch shaft is okay. Thank you!

    Any tips on how to adjust skinny jeans when the boot does not have a zipper? I feel like they are always very bunchy above my ankle.

    Hi Jean. In the pictures above, did you try the AllJack and the AllJill boots in the narrow calf fit or medium? I am leaning toward the alljack but have thinner calfs.

    Is there a secret that everyone knows for keeping soft OTK boots up? I have a pair similar to the first pic on this post. I have worn them several times and have to pull them up every time I stand up. What’s your trick?

    • Jean | Extra Petite wrote:

      I don’t think there’s any trick … as mentioned in my blog post, the only thing that helps for me is thicker knit boot socks (the tall kind that go up to your knee or above) to help create traction between your leg and the boot lining. If thick socks make the foot area of your boots too snug, I’ve also recommended thinner legwarmers in the past so only the calf area gets padded and not the foot area.

      I have TSA precheck so don’t take my shoes off, but I can see how it wouldn’t be as practical for a regular security line! : )

    As always, you look amazing. I would love for you to review some budget friendly ones. I love the SW boot styles and fit, but I can not justify $500+ in a pair of boots unless they are to be used everyday.

      I have the CHarles by CHarles David Gunter boots as a inexpensive alternative and I wear them pretty often (if you search this blog for GUnter you should be able to find my review). They also make a mid block heeled version called the Owen style comparable to the Tielands in style. However note most look for less versions (like the two I mentioned above) are made of faux suede thinner fabric, which is the biggest difference to account for the two price points.

    I just bought the Kneezies (30% off directly from SW), and love them so, so much. I had a weeklong trip for work, and wore them with jeans in the evening and with suits during the day. Comfortable, versatile and stylish. I am 4’10” size 4 and was able to wear thick smart wool socks without feeling squeezed. I also tried the Allgood, a just over the knee style, but had to return bc the shaft height was awkward – there wasn’t enough stretch that I could comfortably bend my knees.

        Hi Jean – what size did you get on the kneezie? SW doesn’t allow return or exchange on discounted item so I’m a bit nervous to buy online. I wear 5.5 in the lowland. Should I get the same size for the kneezie? Thanks!

    Thank you for the thorough boots review, Jean! I recently purchased the SW 5050 suede boots (for 25% off from Bloomie’s on Black Friday). Is there a suede protector you recommend for SW suede boots in general? I tested Scotchguard on the suede inside the boots and it took out the dye! Eeek.

    Silly question, do the hiline boots (or similar with no zippers) set off the metal detectors in the airport? I find that some boots do and some boots don’t but I’d hate to wind up removing OTK boots in the security line!

    • Jean | Extra Petite wrote:

      Hi Amy – not silly at all. My husband’s shoes often set off the detector when we go through TSA pre-check because there’s metal inside the heels! I have not worn highlands through security but I did wear these Tielands and they were fine in the Boston and JFK airports for the TSA precheck line.
