If you are someone who has naturally skinny legs, you will know just how hard it is to find a fashionable pair of knee-high boots that provide a close fit around the calves because many of them are at least 15 inches in circumference.
However the good news is that there seems to be a lot more choice nowadays than there used to be, particularly if you shop online.
So after spending several hours compiling a long list of slim calf boots, here is a definitive guide to the best knee-high boots for narrow, skinny calves that are available for the new fall/winter season 2015–2016, all of which have a boot opening of 14 inches or less:
SoleMani Slim Collection
If you are looking for a stylish pair of dress boots that you can wear to a party, or a casual pair of boots that you can wear throughout fall and winter, SoleMani have a great selection of narrow calf knee-high boots that you can choose from as part of their Slim Collection.
These are generally between 12 and 13.5 inches in circumference, making them a perfect fit if you have skinny legs, and they are all very classy.
The Gabi and Gabi 2 boots featured immediately below are two of the most popular ones, but there are a few more that are well worth considering, including the beautiful Rochelle and Ana dress boots, for example, which would be ideal for parties:

The tall knee-high boots from FRYE are generally some of the best ones you can buy, and thankfully there are several boots in their range that are suitable for women with skinny legs.
The pick of the bunch is arguably the Melissa Button Back Zip Knee-High Boot (pictured below left), which has a boot opening of 14 inches and is available in a wide range of different colors, but the Lindsay Plate Knee-High Boot (pictured below right) is another excellent choice, particularly if you have very slim legs, because it has a boot opening of 13 inches:

Aquatalia by Marvin K Boots
The Aquatalia by Marvin K label is another one that caters for women with narrow calves. These tend to be a little more expensive than many of the other brands, but they are supremely cool and fashionable.
The Rhumba and Magda boots featured immediately below two of their best-looking dress boots, but they also sell a number of narrow calf riding boots as well, such as these Gabor and Oralie boots, for example, which look fantastic:

La Canadienne Boots
Another high class designer label that offers a wide range of slim calf boots is La Canadienne.
These too are a little bit pricey, but they are still very popular because not only do they look sensational, but they are generally tough and durable and last a very long time.
If you are looking for a really slim boot, the relatively new Merav boot (pictured below left) is a good choice because this has a boot opening of just 12 inches, but otherwise they have quite a few that are between 13.5 and 14 inches in circumference, such as these ones for example:
