Personal Shopper: Flat Black Boots for Dana's Minnesota Winters

Dana B. writes, "Hello all, I'm looking for some ankle to mid-calf boots that are as flat as possible. I live in Minneapolis where winter often involves braving harsh elements. I'm quite tall, just under 6', and am married to a wonderful man who is shorter than me, so I'm trying to avoid towering over him by wearing flat shoes. I'm looking for a black boot that is slender, not bulky, and looks sharp. Any suggestions? Thanks! Dana"
