!( am seeking some advice as I am very torn about my current field boots. They are Ariat Heritage Field boots in a full calf. They are mostly comfortable, and they feel as though they fit through the calf. I don’t think I could quite fit into a regular calf. However, my concern is that they ripple down the back. There is one especially prominent spot where the leather juts out near the top (there is probably a centimeter between my skin and the leather). I have attached links to the pictures below. To you I ask should I keep them? Do you think the rippling/fit is bad enough to warrant getting rid of them and finding a better pair? Or would you hang on to them because it’s not noticeable enough to warrant ditching a perfectly good pair of boots?
Secondly, the boots really fold in at my ankle. This fold rubs quite a bit, even though they are very broken in. Has anyone experienced this and/or the rippling? Do you have any solutions?
