So gutted, have just bought some lovely new flat knee high boots and one of them just won't go on! The other was a struggle but can be done. They aren't super tight around the calf, the style is mildly baggy but my foot gets stuck at the ankle and just won't go into the bottom bit. The foot that will go into the boot is comfortable in it so it does 'fit' once on. How, how, how can I get them on? Special socks? Some kind of boot lubricant? Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaagh! Help!
Are they from Office by any chance ? I had the same problem - left went in fine, right was a real struggle. It was almost like there was a slight stitching fault (either that or I have one foot waaaay bigger than the other). I exchanged them for another pair which were absolutely fine
You need to put a plastic bag on your foot then ease your foot in. Very weird but it works.
I bought some cowboy boots in the Summer from a traditional American cowboy type shop. I could get my left foot in but not my right. She told me to do the bag tip. Wear them round the house for a wee bit then next time you will find it much easier. And lo and behold it worked.
