Ok so I just got these gorgeous boots. The problem is(as can be seen from the piccy -- ignore the other stuff lol) from the knee up I cannot get them to fit me  Cry
I bought them online. They lace all the way up the side (zipper on the inner part of the leg) so I didn't think anything of them possibly not fitting.
I'm a little afraid of cutting into them but.. I have to do something  Undecided Any ideas?

(edited to fix link)

I would suggest working with the seam at the back.  You could sew in something like a dart to get a more snug fit.  At least there's no cutting needed, and you can unpick it if it doesn't work.

You are insanely lucky. I would never be able to wear those boots from the calf up!

I would recommend undoing the stitching on the eyelet side of the back piece, then re-fitting the piece, moving the eyelet section and re-sewing it all together. Make sure you have a heavy duty needle and using a plastic bag on top of the shiny side before putting the fabric through your machine.

It IS a fixable issue, so don't worry.
