I have become a little obsessed with trying to make the Express cropped kick flare jeans work. As you can see on my previous thread here my current SW booties are tough to deal with as, despite their higher shaft, the fit around the ankle is loose and it messes up the flare of the jeans.
So I went hunting for higher shaft dark booties with slim ankle fit. There are two candidates: French Connection (FC) pointy black patent booties (photos #1-#3) and Elie Tahari pewter/black almond-toed booties (photos #4-#6). The shaft on ETs is about an inch higher than on FCs. Both fit fairly snug around my skinny ankles. I will post the comfort level review later as not to bias you now - I am curious on input based on proportions and looks only. I am showing them both with nude and black socks. For the ETs I have folded one leg of jeans a little in case you prefer them hemmed. So, the options are:
1. Keep the FCs, keep jeans length as is
2. Keep the ETs, keep jeans length as is
3. Keep the ETs, hem the jeans a little
4. Neither works

Many thanks!
