Proper around the ankle fitment for a laced up boot

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I recently got a pair of C&J Northcotes, and they are gorgeous.  I wear my pants with little/no break which makes this area visible occasionally while cross legged, so I'm having a slight issue I think.

I have chicken legs and ankles, so fully laced there's still a gap around the top.  Comfort wise, this is not a bother at all.  Is this a huge faux-pas though?  Is this supposed to be this way, per the design, or is it 100% poor fit?  I guess the final question is; can a "real" cobbler like B. Nelson take this area in to fit my ankle better?

 

Also, I presume low socks or discreet dark socks are better for a boot of this nature; am I correct in that thought?

 

Thanks guys!

They are boots. Wear whatever socks you want to. Colorful. Brown. Short. Calf length. Etc. There is no "better" choice.

Re the gap..if there is no issue comfort wise, leave them as they are. Why pay to have them adjusted if there is no comfort issue?

Also, men cross their legs. Socks are exposed. It happens. Don't overthink this.
