I happen to have two pairs of black over the knee boots. The only difference between the two is that one pair has ties at the top. These boots are amazing but sometimes, when I’m walking around, I find myself having to pull them up.

Tip 1 

A lot of people like to wear jeans with over the knee boots, but I find that denim doesn’t help when it comes to the boots sliding. I prefer to wear my over the knee boots with leggings. After doing a few experiments, I realized that sheer leggings don’t work too well because the fabric is quite slippery.

On the other hand, cotton leggings work a lot better. Even though cotton is a soft, smooth fabric, the over the knee boots don’t tend to slip when I wear cotton leggings. I found the same goes for polymer fabric. Finding the right fabric when it comes to leggings is a great way to stop over the knee boots from slipping.

Tip 2 

Tip number 2 is a really easy and great way to keep your over the knee boots from slipping. Adding a little double-sided, fabric tape on the inside of your boots can help them stick to the fabric and prevent them from slipping down while you walk around.

Tip number 3 to prevent your over the knee boots from slipping is high socks. This is a great tip for those who like wearing over the knee boots with a bare leg. High socks will definitely help keep your boots from falling down.

Tip 4 

This next step seems pretty simple but it is so important! Before you go ahead and buy a pair of over the knee boots, it’s important to consider which boot you are going to buy. The reason I bought a second pair of boots is that it has a tie at the top.

I love the tie because it allows me to adjust how tight I want the boot which really prevents it from slipping down. Let me know if you have any other tips for wearing over the knee boots in the comments!

    Could you hem the top of the other boots and put a string inside?
