Very nice cigar captoes, sir. Are they Aberdeen...or Hampton?
Hampton. A roomier last than Aberdeen IMO
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 think this is a pretty common issue with new boots. If you want bloody ankles, try breaking in a pair of Beckmans " src="http://files.styleforum.net/images/smilies/baldy.gif" />
Depends on the lining, leather type, etc. Unlined CXL really doesn't chafe though, since it's so malleable.
