I plan to try them with thicker socks, but I worry the leather will stretch over time and I won't have any way to tighten them further. $370 is a big chunk of change to spend on boots that aren't quite right (for me and my skinny legs).
KR, try this: grab an extra footbed from a pair of your athletic shoes, and add them into the Midlands. Don't pull out the stockers, double them up. That should improve it. If it does, pull them out, and go to a high end running store, and try with some aftermarket insoles. My preference is Superfeet green or orange.
