Has anyone else had this issue with their Blondo boots? I took them for a spin on a trip last week with low-cut socks, and am paying for it with welts on the back of both legs.

I don't typically wear knee highs, and suspect that the amount of rubbing would be enough to tear through nylons. I will definitely need bandaids before I wear them again, I don't think BodyGlide will be enough.

Any suggestions on how to break in the top edge?
