I like variety, so from booties to knee highs; the heels just need to be at least 3.75 inch taller than the platform.

I have some ankle many knee and a lot of thigh high boots.  A few 4” mostly 5-6 “ a couple of  7”.  

Mostly in thigh high boots and a mini skirt to go out on date night or to the city.   Ankle and knee boots with jeans, skinny jeans or leggings for just running around

Knee high boots. Heels around 4"-4.5" are best for me

I would say my favorite style has to be knee high with a 4" heel, stiletto or chunky heel.

I prefer thigh high but knee high is usually what you'll find me in. As to heel I like stiletto best with a 5+ inch heel.

I prefer an OTK boot or a thigh high. Heel height preference is 5" and up but I do own others besides. This is one of my more radical pairs I have that are favorite.

Generally speaking, I like taller shafts,  stiletto heels taller than 4", and pointed toes.  But, I can honestly say that I enjoy many styles of boots, it always feels nice to try something different, or rediscover a pair you haven't worn in a long time....

4"-5" and maybe up to 6" with a platform, from booties to OTK....stilleto / pencil / stacked...either way it's sexy

4-5 inches minus a thin platform is good for walkability.  Preferred heel style, a classic supportive and centered fetish heel.

The shaft crotch hi, woo!  At that length they’ve gotta be very well fitted or have some kind of thigh cuffs or be chap boots though.

I have ankle boots and knee boots. I much prefer boots with a side zipper. My boots have heels 5-6" and I have worn the knee boots only with a skirt or dress. The ankle boots I have worn with both bootcut and skinny jeans. I like boots but do not have the variety of boots or experiences others her have. My passion is for sandals with big heels or pumps with very tall heels. HappyinHeels

My tastes have changed over the past few years. When I first started heeling, I was most comfortable in ankle to mid-calf boots with boot cut jeans or pants/trousers. However, as I have become more confident in my style, I have taken to wearing skinnier pants almost always, though I rarely wear truly tight "skinny" jeans/pants. Mid-calf boots don't seem to work out so well with slimmer pants--what do you do with them? Outside or inside? Neither looks that great on me to my eye, so I have gravitated toward either knee highs on the outside of the pants, or ankle boots. All my boots are in the heel height range of 4 1/2 - 5 1/4 inches, and are either stiletto heels, or nicely tapered thicker heels. I'm not a big fan of straight sided block heels. To me they look clunky. Oh, and all of my boots save one have a small platform, 1 inch or less. I have one pair of boots with a 5 inch heel and no platform, but I'm still working up to them as far as wanting to wear them in public without looking silly. I am aware of my physical limitations. My graceful limit right now is about a 4 1/2 inch difference between heel and platform (size 9 U.S. women's).

I would say that my comfort range would be 4 to 5 inch heels, but that does not mean that I won't rock a pair of 3" heels!

I have always worn boots, mainly hiking boots, ever since college days and while I like hiking boots well enough, with their suggestion of piney trails and outdoors, I don’t much care for the bland styles of men’s boots in general which are invariably some dull version of chukka.  I envied the flair and the range of heights and boot styles available to women. Ankle boots, knee boots and slightly otk boots are all nice in my book. They don’t have to have heels, but I like the bit of raffishness a heel lends them. It doesn’t gave to be high either, just enough to give me the satisfaction of bending the rules and flouting conventionality.

Sorry if this thread is too old to reply, but I am new here and I liked reading the responses to this topic.  I like the 18" shaft height, covering the calf all the way up to the knee.  I like the cozy feeling of fitting leather shafts wrapped around the calves.  I like the idea of wearing even taller boots to extend that coziness up to the knee and thigh, but I'd want something that continues to be form fitting.

I'm comfortable with any heel height between a 0.5 to 3.5 inches.  As for shaft, I prefer ankle boots but have a couple of knee-high boots.  

These are my favorites in airports, as they don't attract too much attention.  I'm not an exhibitionist by any stretch of the imagination.

The locking bands are actually ankle cuffs that I got from an ebay shop. I Just cut the chains off.  :)

Ankle and Knee High boots are my preference but I have 2 pairs of Thigh High Boots and a pair of Ballet Ankle Boots. My boots range in heel height from 4 to 7 inches ( quite the broad range ) preferably stiletto but I do have a few pairs with some block heels.587940064eaa7_7inchKneeHighBoots003(633x640).jpg.548e27cb69d335d4419bda12612c597a.jpgIMG_2422.thumb.JPG.7819f2c3b234f2fd2761ceac32da0950.JPG1503542225_AnkleBootBalletHeels1(640x562).jpg.35bc0bc764d99dfba8bd79181b719c0e.jpg

I have mostly three to four inch block heel boots.  These are divided between ankle, knee, and over the knee styles.  Most have a western style stacked heel, a few have a straight block. I have three pair about 4.5" and one lone ankle pair at 5" with a platform.  I ran out of closet space so I let go of 1/4 my collection last Saturday to St. Vincent de Paul in Dallas.  It took three days to decide which to part with and it wasn't easy.  I needed to do this to keep peace in the family.   Everything must fit into the closet. I had 60 pair so now closer to 40.
