I need your help. I am having boot/knee brace issues..

I am 5'2, so my gear doesn't quite fall in the same spot it does on folks of "normal" height. With that being said, I have an older (about 4 years old) style of the low-end Gaerne boots and wear the original model Asterisk knee brace. Everything works fairly well together.

My boots are showing signs of wear, so I've been looking for another pair. I found a nearly new pair of Gaerne SG-10's for a great price and snapped them up...Well, these boots fit my leg without a knee brace, but with the Asterisk braces on, they probably lack 1.5"-2" at the top for the leather meeting. It looks crazy.

I don't know if the boots I just got are cut wrong, or if the new design/SG-10 model is that much slimmer in the calf. The only thing I know for sure is that I can't wear the boots with my current braces.

I was wondering if any of you had experience with the Gaerne boots over the years. Have you noticed things changing?

Do the new style fit over your braces OK?
What braces do you use?
Are there any braces that have a slimmer profile that you are aware of?

Please help!

Thanks much -
