Below the knee is a standard height for a woman's dress boot. They are not 'slutty'. You might wear them with jeans or whatever, but I also see women wearing them with skirts as office wear.
Over the knee is a little different. It was in fashion decades ago, I know its made a come back in recent years, but it does have a 'slutty' vibe. Its not office wear, its always been more a 'club wear' look. Streetwalkers were known for wearing them, perhaps to protect their knees when kneeling in alleyways ...
At 17, I'd moved out, was in university, etc. I think 17 year olds can dress like sluts if they want to. And an over the knee boot over leggings or jeans isn't super slutty, but it IS a sexy look.
How old do you need to be to wear them? Old enough to understand its not just a fun fashion, that 'sexy' is not just another word for 'cute' and that grown men and guys your age look at them and imagine screwing you while wearing them. THAT is what sexy means. If you're comfortable with that, you're old enough to wear them, if that freaks you out, stick to the uggs or ballet flats or whatever other hideous thing your friends think is so 'cute'.
