Hi all. I finally got a pair of custom boots. Parlantis. For my size I could not find anything off the rack. I have a short lower leg with a wider calf (but not WIDE like for actual wide width boots), my muscle starts getting big pretty far down and I’m a 7.5. I spent a year trying everything. No dice. No fun.
So I love my new boots! It took one adjustment requiring them going going back to Italy. Post-adjustment they are awesome, particularly after never having tall boots before.
However, I’m still in break-in mode and there’s no room for both me and socks with any bulk. For now I’m wearing thin socks which barely cover the bottom of my breeches. I can zip up my boots but the socks sometimes they work their way into uncomfortable positions.
