Personal Shopper: A mid-calf shaft brown boot to end Abra's four year search

Abra L. wrote, "Hi! I'm new to your site, but by the looks of it, you may be the best people to help me! I am now entering my 4th year of searching for the perfect boot. I like styles like the Steve Madden Intyce, but I'm 5 foot and boots higher than a 10-12 inch shaft are way too tall for me! I considered the mid-calf Frye boots, but they were a little too cowboy for my style. Can you help me find a pair that would come to a couple of inches below my knee? Cheaper is always better, but for an investment item like this, I'm willing to spend more. I'm most interested in a tan/carmel/brown boot. Thanks so much!! Abra"

Wow, you weren't kidding - this was a hard one, Abra! There are tons of brown leather boots out there, but with the current knee high/over-the-knee boot trends, there weren't many mid-calf shaft boots. Here are six pairs, ranging from cheap splurges to investment pieces. Hopefully, now your search is over!

1. Camper Women's 46073 Elsa Slouch Boots ($152)
2. Tory Burch Vintage Leather Stowe Flat Boots ($495)
3. Børn 'Gwendolyn' Mid Calf Boots ($250)
4. Charlotte Russe Faux Leather Buckle Belt Boots ($46)
5. Journee Collection Buckle Accent Mid-calf Boots ($37)
6. Farylrobin Women's Lottie Boots ($260)

These boots are sooo different than eachother. I'm actually surprised how much I like the style on the Charlotte Russe boots. This Pungler is confused!

I'm about 5'2" and had a similar problem. I ended up going with the Doc. Marten Case Boot in grey ( They look a little "rough and tough" in the photos, but I wear them with everything: leggings, jeans, dresses, etc. They come right to my mid-calf and are super comfy!
