Tried the long walk shorts with boots (#1-4), heels (#5), and heeled sandals (#6). Still unsure about the longer length. Here is a sampling of footwear. I wouldn't necessarily wear this top, it's just what I had on the day I took the photos. Hope some of the boot combos work, I wore one of them today (feel free to guess, you'll see it tomorrow!) :)
EDIT: I'm not against keeping this pair long and finding a second shorter pair IF the longer length works with some of these types of footwear.
