I'm looking for a pair of tall boots because i'm tired of going through half chaps every 6 months or so and I honestly like the look of tall boots more anyway. I am interested in these boots because I have the Mountain Horse Active Winter Rider boots and love them.
What I am concerned about is what size to get. I'm 5'3" and have a larger calf size (according to most boot size charts anyway). My lower leg measured barefoot from the floor to the back of my knee (bent at a 90 degree angle) is 15.5"-16" (hey it's hard to get right when you're measuring on your own! ) and 14.5" wide around the calf with breeches on. I can't decide if I would be best served getting the short height boots or not seeing as i'm so close to the upper limit of calf height on the short/regular boots. I'm thinking so because I can't imagine they will drop that much with the zippers but i'm hoping someone has these boots and can give me real world experience.
