Semi-wordless Wednesday: The great La Mundial boot depression of 2014

Why can’t anyone ever believe in tall people? Even with custom boots? ;(

So pretty

My finger is the bottom of my knee cap…

I just need someone to remove a little over an inch from my leg and I’m good…

So depressing…

Just wanted to share my sadness. Still figuring out what happens next, besides me riding in my old pull on boots at the next show. Sigh.

      I’m very torn between getting them redone and getting my money back (although I’ve heard bad things on that front too). I have no luck I think!

    I will never understand this problem, as my legs are child sized short… but I still feel your pain on things not fitting. And having something “custom” that isn’t actually custom sucks.

    All I can say is wow. Just wow. Maybe they messed up and thought the inside measurement was supposed to be the outside measurement? The top of the spanish cut on the outside would be just about perfect on the inside. Did you call them? Major bummer since you waited so long and were so excited to get them for finals. And not sure if it is my computer, but the pictures look stretched out and make you look even taller. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Yeah I called yesterday then emailed photos last night. We shall see. Supposedly only 6 weeks for rebuild. Maybe I was having a tall day, they look normal on my computer, lol.

    Oh no!!! I feel your pain leg length-wise, but cannot believe that even with specific measurements they are too short! Sucky-ness. ๐Ÿ™ Hopefully they can get you a really great solution!
