Yeah, general rule is sturdy boot that comes above the ankle, preferably leather.

The boots have to cover your ankle and a little further up, incase you fall so you won't break your ankle.

Just go to payless and buy some cheap boots, that's what I did when I needed boots.

Doesn't that make them "above the ankle" boots?
