I feel for you! My daughter had those Ariats that pinched the back of her knee and were tight above the ankle as well. At a show, (me & her are the same shoe size), she begged me to trade boots, mine were comfy, old but in perfect shape, I despise anything that hurt my feet. Being the good mom, I traded. I hated those Ariats instruments of torture! No matter what I did they blistered me, worst was behind the calf, didn't think about the shoemaker lowering them but they were uncomfortable all over. I stood in a bucket of hot water with them, flexed on steps, knelt, used every kind of leather conditioner I could find, nothing made them comfortable. I gave them back to her & told her to give them to someone she hated! I bought another pair, Dublins, aaaaah, comfort once more. After that I will never ever buy or trade boots unless I try them on first.
