    How do I fix the loose ankle of the Evolution boots?

    Just received my Boba Fett boots from Evolution, and think they look great! Other than the no-piping (easy fix) my feet fit great in them...well, almost.

    Im a size 10R sneaker, and that's the same size as my military boot that I wear on duty. I asked for the same, and the toe-to-heel sizing of the boot in comparison to my actual foot is SPOT ON. The only problem is, the ankle opening at the top is too wide, and when I walk my heels are lifting off of the sole.

    Is there anything that anyone did to remedy this? I was thinking of possilby sewing elastic on the inside to tighten the ankle portion to my ankle. Any help would be awesome. Like I said, these boots are made great, I'm just trying to fix this one thing.

    You could try putting shoe lifts in there. Get an extra inch of height and have your heel get seated in the narrower part of the boot.
