I actually returned my first pair because the upper part of the boot was digging into the back of my leg/ankle. I compared the right and left side and the side that was bothering me was angled in more towards my leg (hence the digging). My new pair feels just fine. I haven't completely broken them in yet, but they feel much better than my first pair. I told LL Bean that they were defective and I was able to exchange them for free.
