Our boot model 412 ends right under the knee. This kneehigh lace boot is longer in the front than in the back. This way the shaft appears higher, but is still comfortable in the hollow of the knee. You will need to lace them up just once, after that you will have a perfect fit and you can use the zipper to put them on and off. The boot is very comfortable and can be worn also by untrained heel wearers. For very slim or strong calves we recommend this model made-to-measure (up to size 47 and in other colors and materials). Please note that, contrary to the illustration, this model is supplied with a full zipper.
