Does anyone have this problem?My booties come up about an inch past my ankles but they really dig into my legs when I walk. I dont think its the boot but maybe my legs? I have pretty slim ankles and calves. My thumb tip and middle finger can almost touch at the slimmest point.

I've also kept them halfway zipped and it still doesn't help.

Any thoughts and/or suggestions are appreciated.

I just checked in the mirror and it seems the problem could be the way the bootie is cut. When I'm standing straight, my leg is not centered evenly with the opening of the bootie. My leg rests very close to the front and the outer side of the opening. Anyone else owns these Cult Gaia booties? I believe the style name is Cam.

I've read that CG leather can be hard. Or it could be the edge where it's leaving the imprint is too rigid. May need to wear tights or knee high socks with these. Can you still return?

I have this problem a lot with wider shoes! Usually I just try to find a clothing buffer but I’ve also stuck bandaids on the inside so they aren’t seen.

I have this problem with lots of boots and booties (I think it may be because I have slim ankles and a tendency to overpronate so even with longer zippered boots the zipper bends/folds and digs into my leg just above the ankle). I would also recommend socks or sticking plasters. Personally I think tights don’t work unless they are really really think like 100+ den
