My main concern with my high instep is that it doesn't seem to hurt when simply trying on unless it is really tight but it tends to hurt after about 3-4 hours of wear and by then the boots will likely be un-returnable so I really have to commit to the boots. Maybe I can wear it around the house in carpet for that long to test it out?

And note the original to see why it'd be a bad decision:
mmmmmmm, wish augustas were more in my price range.
