Tips on How to Keep Knee High Boots up?

If you are looking for some tips on how to keep your knee high boots up, then you have come across the right blog post. There are a few ways that can help make sure your boots stay in place throughout the day.

-Put hair pins at the top of each boot to hold it together
-Use rubber bands around your ankle and heel of one foot while wearing socks or tights

This will create a tight seal against your leg which will prevent slippage during wear.

Lastly, try using shoe inserts on both feet inside of each boot when not being worn so they maintain their shape. These are just three methods that I have found helpful!

Wear tall socks to keep your feet warm

Say you’ve fallen victim to a fashion trend that no one knew would come back, and now you’re trying to figure out how to keep your socks from going down every three seconds.

You need a method for stopping them from sliding down your leg, not more fabric against the skin. Arrange a ponytail of hair at the nape of your neck and position it over the top of your knee-high sock so that’s draped partly over it–then tie or wrap it around behind your calf as tightly as necessary to secure each sock in place with elastic bands.

Use shoe inserts for extra cushioning and stability

Use shoe inserts for extra cushioning and stability.

A shim can be inserted from the inside of your boot. Shim your foot before sliding your foot into the boot, to avoid bulky folds that will make it difficult to zip up.

Then put a small piece of cardboard down over the top of a folded up sock, place a heel on top and then slide your leg into the boot making sure that they don’t fold or bunch when you pull them on over your heel.

This will create firmness in the boots due to arch curvature for more snug around ankles movement preventing loss of contact with ground surface slipping out easily because lightweight material makes it easier to move around without tearing off laces or straps holding boots secure tightly.

Put on a heel grip pad in the back of your boots to help them stay up

Put on one of the heel grip pads that are sold at stores like Target or Walmart to ensure they stay up.

The good news is that there are some really cheap solutions for this problem. One is to put some kind of pad in the back of your boots, like a heel gripper, then tighten the laces around it.

Another idea is to use an office stapler or some other simple clamping device to help you keep your expensive shoes on your feet more securely.
There are also heel grips specific made for this problem available online if these first two suggestions don’t work for you!

Try using a hair tie or rubber band to hold the top of your boot together

Put on a heel grip pad in the back of your boots to help them stay up and keep you from slipping.

A lot of problems can actually be solved by using ordinary household items like hair ties, rubber bands, and masking tape.

The easiest way to wear these types of shoes is to simply place them inside the top of your pants like you would normally do for any other shoe. If your shoe is not staying up under these circumstances (or for some other reason), try it with a strong rubber band instead – slide it around just above where the boot meets the pant leg and tighten it so that when you walk, the elastic will always keep your shoe in place at whatever position is most comfortable for you.

Get taller heels that will make you appear taller and more stable

Here are three tips that might help to keep knee high boots up.

  1. First, find shoes with heels that are the right height for you because it helps to create a feeling of stability in order to prevent your screws from coming loose when movement is involved.
  2. Second, wear your heavier clothes on your lower half and carry a light weight jacket or cardigan over one arm so that tension isn’t being put on the top part of the boot which could cause them to loosen or fall off entirely if they’re not able to handle the pressure.
  3. Third, use hair pins, bobby pins, holders and anything else you have on hand! Attach these items together in an alternating pattern

Get knee high boots with zipper closures, which are easier to take off when they don’t fit right

It’s not just easier to take off at the end of the day, it also makes it easier to put them on. The zip is found in the back and goes from the top all the way down to where you step in. This means there is no need for a heel slit, so there should be no worry about boots slipping off when they get wet outdoors.

Plus if they’re made of leather instead of Suede, your feet will stay warmer during winter! A nice pair that we recommend would be our Classic Boots or pointed shoes like these pointed pumps.

One is to find ones with zipper closures, since they’re easier to take off when they become uncomfortable. Another way is silicone based spray on the inside of the heel and tongue (the little tab which goes in front and ties). Just make sure it’s not super shiny, or else you might mess up the look.

Finally, never wear any other shoes with combat style boots without something like nice sneakers underneath them; your tightly skinned foot will slip right out of them because there isn’t much arch support!

Wear boots with a heel that is at least 1-inch high

If you are having issues with your knee-high boots slipping, try wearing the ones with a heel that is at least 1 inch high. I have found using nail polish can also hold them in place for some people, but it’s best to practice on shoes before doing this so close attention isn’t needed.

The other obvious answer is that you should adjust their straps or laces as tight as possible to keep the fit snug. They won’t slip out of position if they’re right on your ankles!

The most important thing about wearing knee high boots is the heel height. Anything more than 1-inch will most likely keep your leg straight and prevent the ankle from bending.

If you want to wear a lower heel with boots, you can create a leather cuff or another type of shim at the top that pushes up against the calf which prevents slouching against gravity.

It will also help to wear a garter belt, strapjumpsuit, or thigh highs for extra support around your thighs. In short, anything that keeps your legs tight and in place while allowing them to move freely while you walk.

Add a thin sole to the bottom of your boot

Why not put a thin sole to the bottom of your boot? Not only does this provide relief, but it still allows you to walk as if you were wearing boots!

Trying adding a thin sole to your high-heeled boots and see how that feels. Otherwise, wearing lower heels for the time being might be the best option.

Make sure that what ever shoes you buy allow room at the front and back of the shoe for some extra cushioning. Walk around in them before buying them so they don’t feel too tight or uncomfortable.

Wear boots with a heel that is at least 1-inch high. Put on some insoles for more comfort, and you’re all set.

If you’re going to wear a pair of heels with a thin sole for extended periods of time, I recommend going back to the store where you bought them and having them put an insole in the boot so it doesn’t get uncomfortable. But if they were cheap shoes from Forever 21 or H&M, give them up already! It’s not worth your health!

Tighten up laces as much as possible so they don’t loosen over time

It’s important to make sure the laces are as tight as possible. Tighten them up and knot them considerably so they don’t loosen over time! If your boots still come undone, make sure you’re buckling your clips evenly – if not, buckle it tighter to compensate for any extra slack.

Try adjusting the width of the shoe at the back, along with tightly tying both laces together then cross one lace over and tie it around itself (see video for more info). At this point try walking in a circle; adjust orientation and angle of foot-to-foot connection till you find one that feels comfortable. Find a spot where there is less contact between skin and boot material so as to avoid skin irritation.

Spray some hairspray on the back of your calves before putting on your boots for more grip between calf and boot

Rough surfaces with a lot of traction will also encourage the boot to stay up. If you’re in a pinch and need to walk around in your boots, try spraying hair spray on the back of your leg before getting dressed, at least until you find some better options.

Hairspray will provide traction by holding onto your pantyhose or legging when they brush against your legs for example.
I admire how fashion is evolving so much these days but this is one trend with which I am not about to partake with my own kinky, curly hair that’s always sticking out everywhere!

Put a rubber band around one leg just below the knee, then pull it tight to create an elastic band that will help hold up your boot cuff when you walk

The best way to do this is to put a rubber band around one leg just below the knee, then pull it tight to create a knot. The resulting lump that’s created by the knot should be just large enough for your heel or toes wedged inside. This keeps the boot from falling too low without sacrificing comfort. If you don’t have any rubber bands lying around, you can always use hairbands or scrunchies instead.

We all know that strap boots are the perfect accessory for winter, but many people often struggle with keeping these tall knee high boots up. Luckily, here are a few hacks to help them stay in place!
Firstly, try wrapping one leg with an elastic band just below your kneecap. This rubber band will act as a tourniquet and keep the boot on snug during heavy movements like skiing or snowboarding. Wrapping it this way will also prevent any blisters from drooping pants or drooping hems of jeans from riding up the leg and rubbing against skin which can cause painful irritation.


If you struggle with keeping your knee high boots up, try these tips and tricks. They might just help! We can’t guarantee that any of them will work for everyone, but we know they’ll at least be worth a shot. So what are you waiting for? Get out there and start trying some of these techniques to keep those tall boots on your feet!


How do I stop my boots from slouching?

This is a common problem for many people who are looking to buy boots. The proper, traditional way of wearing boots include two elements.

First thing you should do is figure out if your boots have a heel or not. If they do, then it’s important that this heel be worn at the back of the toes and not on top of them (tip: slide the foot forward in the shoe to see where it feels most comfortable).

When someone wears their shoes with a heel on top, what’s happening is that when they walk – their ankle puts pressure down onto their shoes and gravity pulls on them from behind – which causes slouching.

Are over the knee boots supposed to be loose?

If they’re fitted to the rest of your leg, then yes.

Loose over the knee boots can make a woman’s legs appear bigger and unfortunately they do not look flattering on most people.

Designer fashion experts say that over the knee boots should be fitted in all other areas in order to create an illusion of slimming down rather than making you look heavier around the thighs because this is where loose over-the-knee boots often fall short.

How can I make my boots stand up straight?

In order to have your boots stand upright, you will need to find a way of supporting them from behind. This can either be a person or a prop.
Use a person: Place one knee on the ground and lean against their legs so it is easier for them to hold up the boot with both hands.

Place two fingers along the heel of the boot and push down with all their weight so it’s being held in place by your hand as well as their body
Use a prop: If you’re standing, lean over slightly with your elbows on top of another surface. In this position, put pressure on both sides of each boot by leaning into it from either side until one stands up then do this for the other one.

There are many opinions, but the most popular way to combat this problem is by putting heel lifts or innersoles inside of the boots. The heel lift will both raise your heel and tilt your foot inwards, and more than likely resolve your issue.

The first option would be to buy some insoles made for high arches and inserted them into the boot. You can also purchase gel pads that can be cut to size and inserted into the boots as well.

Inserting enough material into the toe-box of a pair of flat shoes should provide some arch support as well, as it will push weight off the balls of your feet.

How do I stop my knee high boots from sagging?

Wearing a pair of boot lifts is the easiest way to stop your high heel boots from sagging. It’s a simple and quick solution that can bring new life to a winter wardrobe you thought was lost!

Simply insert the lift under the boot’s inner sole, position it so it feels secure, and continue on with your day before anyone can notice. A word of caution though, don’t wear them all day long or they might start to feel uncomfortable! In this situation you’ll need to spend some time rehousing your body weight off of centering on them more-so than usual.

Should you size up for knee high boots?

I would size up, because the natural process of swelling will put you into a tight spot and make it uncomfortable to live with.

I would recommend sizing up if you want to be comfortable and not restricted in the leg. Buying knee high boots that are too snug is both an uncomfortable foot and leg cramping experience where standing for any length of time becomes near impossible without shifting one’s weight from one side to the other.

Will over the knee boots fit my legs?

It is difficult to give an answer without seeing your legs in person – however, I’m afraid it’s unlikely the boots would fit your legs.

The problem with over the knee socks are two-fold. First of all, there might not be enough room for your calves in the boot because they are made narrow at the top to stay up on top of knees.

Second of all, even if they did have room for your calf in them, most shoes won’t cover them with anything besides jeans/tights/panty hose so you’ll have this awkward situation where either what’s covered by pants is enormously tight or what isn’t covered is too long and bulky.

Should you size up or down in boots?

If you want to wear them with thick socks, size down. Narrow feet are best suited to pull on boots of any size. A narrow foot doesn’t have a wide ankle, so it will slide right in easily.
Narrow-footed people generally do not need extra space for their toes in the boot shaft, meaning they typically do not benefit from getting a larger size in order to fit their feet (especially if they don’t plan on wearing bulky wool socks). Alternatively, if you want the room for thicker socks or broader feet these may require sizing up when possible.
