Hi all, I have the most perfect fitting pair of Rossi boots. I could wear (and have worn) these things all day - walking, sitting, riding - and I feel like I wore runners all day. My only problem is that the boots are the ladies' ones without any real protection in them. My question is, is it possible to get protection *added* to boots by someone who makes custom boots or similar? I'd love to get some good protection added to the outside if I can, but I guess I have to be able to so do without compromising the construction of the boot (they're a pretty plain boot). If its not possible to get anything added to them to make them more protective, where does the ankle etc protection sit with those who've needed the protection? Is it just as important as wearing boots at all, or is it one of those take it or leave it type things about boots? I had a really hard time finding boots that actually fit (small foot, fat calf) so .. yeah .. I think I know the answer but sometimes you just never can tell :?
