    It looks fine from the front. Its the side where you see a large gap

    I think you’re the only one who will be scrutinizing it out in public.

    from the front view, it looks fine.  from the side view, it’s definitely more noticeable.

    I think it’s fine.  I also have chicken legs so all of my boots have a bit of a gap.  I feel like that particular style isn’t meant to be skin tight, and looks fine with a gap. 

    You could also play around with wearing different pants with them.  It looks like those jeans have a lot of stretch or are very slim cut.  If you have a pair with thicker fabric or a slightly looser cut or bunch at the ankle more it might lessen the gap a little and make you feel better about the look.  Whenever I buy boots I hate them at first because my legs are too small, but once I play around with outfits I end up liking them.

    Yes, It’s very noticeble from the side, but I wouldn’t worry about it. Have you tried wearing socks with them, the cable type that show a bit?


    I love those boots, where are they from?

    I like that look, I think it kinda helps your legs look obviously thin which is totally a plus! I don’t think there’s anything wrong with a gap at all. =)
