"I went back to wearing a single lightly cushioned sock. No hot spots. So I think the width is going to work out okay. I have an even thinner pair I can try in this regard. Owe we I really felt the bruising above the ankle today I can’t see what’s even causing it. There is a seam in the boot at that point, but it’s not hard. Funny you mention the Solomon, I had originally intended to buy that boot but it was out of stock in my size at the store I was at."
