I bought these awesome boots on Amazon last week. I wear a size 8.5 but ordered a 9 because the company didn't offer half sizes. The boots came yesterday and they are a little tight in the foot but I can probably deal with that, won't wear them out in public much, I'm sure. However, they seem and look a little loose in the thigh area. I'm pretty tall so it's my lower thigh area right above the knee. I have this problem with boots all the time. HC and a few others suggested squats but I don't know if that will really solve this problem. I love boots and want to wear them but I just don't know if any boot will look OK because of this problem.
