What are boots over the knee called?

Over-the-knee boots (or cuissardes, which include thighboots, top boots, hip-boots, and waders), OTK boots, are long boots that fully or partly cover the knee.

Do over-the-knee boots make you look shorter?

Unless you’re a model, over-the-knee boots can be somewhat challenging to pull off. The fact that they cover well over half the leg means that they can dominate your lower half. This draws eyes downwards and creates weight on your lower legs, making you appear shorter than what you are.

How do I get my OTK boots to stay up?

Simply place a loop of double-sided tape around your leg (preferably over nylons, tights, leggings, or socks) where the top of your boots will sit. Once you put them on, gently press your boots into the band of tape to help keep them secure.
