I'm using a small pad to cushion my ankle until the leather molds to my foot a little better.

I have had this happen with a couple of pair of Alden boots.  The spot where I am afflicted is the inside left ankle.  In each instance it has happened, it went away after a few wears.  That and loosening the lacing until break-in completed took care of the problem.

I had something similar on my Black Shell NST boots, the boot rubbed my left ankle raw and I put some second skin (http://tinyurl.com/l5aomhy) on the area to keep it from getting worse. After about a week the boots were as comfortable as any others, and once the skin healed all was well smile.gif Be patient.

I think this is a pretty common issue with new boots.  If you want bloody ankles, try breaking in a pair of Beckmans :brick:

 

Depends on the lining, leather type, etc.  Unlined CXL really doesn't chafe though, since it's so malleable.

I've never had an issue with my shell or chromexel boots. Just seems like my ankle is too low/shoe edge is too high and it's rubbing. Once I get more flex in the sole, I think it'll give more at the rub spot. I'm just gonna stay the course and sacrifice for a week or two in favor of a lifetime of awesome wear.
