I am buying a pair of Ariat Heritage Contour Zip field boots (my first tall boots, hence why I need some help ) and know that they will drop, but am unsure about how high they should be when buying new before the drop.
I am short, 5 feet tall, and assumed I would take the ‘short’ height (they come in short, regular, and tall) but my tack shop only had the ‘regular’ in my size in store. It is easy to order the ‘short’ so availability is not an issue – I’m more wondering if the ‘regular’ height shown in the attached pictures is too tall to begin with, and if I should stick with these or order the ‘short’ (the regular hits towards the top of my knee right now, and it feels like I can’t bend my leg at all, which I know will be better once they drop – but I am concerned that they won’t drop enough for it to be comfortable). So, like I said, both heights are available but since I’m new to this I would really appreciate some advice! Thank you!
