They make boots with a larger fit fit, why can't they make narrower ones as well?
    there are places where you can get narrow calf boots because i have this exact same problem. nordstrom has a search so that you can get that grouping and duoboots.com lets you specify the circumference.

    Ooh, thanks for the tip. I'm not sure about buying shoes online, but I might try it at some point-shopping is just too frustrating.
