How about a little "chain-ge" for the better? Sounds like the Yoki Kelsey Black Chain Gang Knee High Boots might do the trick! Smooth vegan nubuck suede boots reach knee-high, with pull tabs, and an awesome harness slung low around the ankle, dangling a silver chain around the heel to add some edge. Almond-shaped toe has white top-stitching along the sole. Shaft is 16.5" tall, with a 16.5" circumference at opening, plus a 15.5" back zipper and snap button tab up top. 1.75" wooden-look heel. Slightly padded insole; nylon lining. Non-skid rubber sole. Available in whole and half sizes. Fit is true to size (round up if you're between sizes). Measurements are for a size 6. All vegan friendly, man made materials.
