I LOVE these boots. I hadn't ever tried short boots before (they hit a little bit above the ankle) so I just tried them on on a whim. I was surpised at how adorable they are! I'm pretty short, so the height works on me. The heel is about 2", but really chunky. Feels like I'm walking on air. The moto-style looks great with tights, leggins, knee highs, and jeans alike. Perfect for a long, cold Michigan Winter.
