So, I bought a pair of Tredstep Davinci’s a few months ago after I found them for a really good deal brand new on ebay. Unfortunately I have a large foot (8.5 - 9) for my skinny calves (barely 12.5") and the 13" calf on my Davinci’s is just too big. Not to mention the footbed is rock hard and extremely uncomfortable. After I put on my Ariat paddock boots, I feel like I am walking on clouds. I am also not impressed with the leather on the Davincis, it is not very soft and they still really haven’t broken in. I have huge blisters all over the backs of my ankles/feet and I’ve had enough!
So, I was wondering if there are any comfortable boots out there that are under $500 with small calves. I would love a pair of custom Der Dau’s or Parlanti’s, but I just don’t have the money for custom boots. Any help would be appreciated!
