Men's ankle boots are boots that are sleek, cut to accentuate the length of the leg, and give you a bit of added height without the chunkiness of other footwear, like hiking or motorcycle boots.
Ankle boots are short boots that extend to the ankle, where your foot meets your lower calf.
Made from various materials—including suede, leather, and faux leather—ankle boots come in closed- and open-toe styles and are often flat or low-heeled.
The main difference between bootie and ankle boots is their height and where the shoe falls on the line of your leg.
Booties are shorter in height and should ideally end right at your ankle, while ankle boots will end one to four inches above your ankle, like a Chelsea boot, combat boot, or work boot.
For a long, lean line, tuck the pants into the boots.
This works best with legging jeans where the leg opening at the ankle is small and they fit snug to the leg.
You don't want them to look bunchy.
If they're going to bunch, you're better off cuffing them.
