comfortable everywhere except at the inside ankle bone - too high at this place so it rubs tissue enough to cause a blister

Bought these a week ago and played in them several times already. Plenty of structure and comfort at the same time! I have a somewhat wide foot at the top. Will buy a second pair soon since manufacturers change models so quickly.
