    (pic of what I mean.)

    I've had these for over two weeks, wearing them to pretty much everywhere because they're super comfortable, except for the little bit of pressure that this puts on my foot. I feel like I've tried everything; stretching, lacing differently...should I just send them back for a defect? The left boot fits perfect.

    The wadding up of the leather (on both shoes) seems to me, to show that the last isn’t a good fit for your foot.

    These shoes are, like most rugged boots, typicall cut very spaciously and as soon as you have excess leather, it will warp. This is completely normal especially around the ankle in boots as you need this space in order to move your foot. Due to the fact that leather is a natural and "grown" material with varying thickness and internal structural differences across even the same hide, no two shoes will ever crease identically. Just wear and enjoy them as they are and ignore the different crease... this is what some people term as shoes with character :)
