Small problem with my boots, need advise

These boots were made for walkin and the gloves were made to push the trigger on the big guns.

Small problem with my boots, need advise

Post by Skallinn » Fri Feb 09, 2018 7:35 pm

Hi I just got my boots. They look nice but I have a problem. My anckles stand out and in the shoe part of the boots I have a hard shell that hits my anckle. Do you think I could go to a shoesmith and have them shave off that hard shell or fix it somehow?

https://flic.kr/p/238hxsE: Jumpsuit just arrived
https://flic.kr/p/Kg9bhx: Me pretty happy with my jumpsuit
https://flic.kr/p/238hucG: One of my ankles....
https://flic.kr/p/238hyWG: One of the boots, inside the boot itself is a hard shell that shapes the area around the foot itself and that shell is just under my ankle.

Yeah it looks good, but I think I need to take'em to a shoesmith and have him take a look at it for me so those boots won't hurt me

Iwent to a shoesmith and he said the area around the heel has a hard plastic to hold the shape and nothing can be done about it.

So I decided to try something else and bought some inserts that lift the heel and lift my ankles away from that hard plastic too

Yes, either insoles, or use a heat gun or blow dryer to heat up that plastic piece and mold it to your foot. My wife does it a lot with roller skates.

I would try the insoles first, personally.
