Boot problem - skinny legs
I need some advice on my boot situation.
I bought a nice pair of Xelement boots. Mid-calf length(height?), Velcro, zippers, shin guards, the whole 9 yards.
Well, my problem is that a) I have skinny legs and b) the soles are too thick.
a)My legs are so skinny I have to wear 2 big pairs of tube socks so that my ankle/calf isnít swallowed up by the boot. It ďfitsĒ on my foot, but the rim of the boot rubs my calves raw if I donít have big socks on, because thereís so much room. I have the Velcro strapped as tight as I can make it. My leg is like a straw flopping around in a cup with no lid. My feet get so hot and sweaty that itís just not comfortable to wear all day.
b)The other problem is that the soles are so thick that I canít feel the brake pedal at ALL. The shifter is OK, but canít really feel it either.
I wore some jungle/army boots that fit really tight and well, and it was sooo nice to ride and be able to FEEL the bike better. The only problem is that the jungle boots have virtually no protection (no padding, just thin canvas).
Does anyone else have this problem, or have any suggestions?
If anyone wants to buy them, I'm probably going to sell them soon and find something else. Only worn for like 2 weeks. I paid 100 + shipping.
